DRUM ROLL, PLEASE!

 

In approximately 24 hours from now (Saturday, November 8, 2014 at 04:00 PM EST, or 01:00 PM official eBay time), we will offer on eBay the first installment of our personal vinyl collection: beautiful pieces of wax that have been in our cherished possession for decades. Over the next 8 to 12 weeks, and divided into three lots of 500 to 1000 items in size, we will deliver to eBay some of the finest, the most collectible, the most coveted and most valuable records ever made.  From now until February 2015, you will be showered by the vinyl hurricane and flooded by the wax monsoon like eBay has rarely, if ever,  seen.

 

We invite you to join us for what we firmly believe will be the SINGLE BIGGEST AND THE MOST SIGNIFICANT SERIES OF MUSIC AUCTION IN THE PAST SEVEN YEARS, and – quite possibly – the biggest and most significant music auction since the inception of eBay (probably second only to our February 2008 Jazz auction).  If everything goes as planned, our first gigantic auction (our ELEVENTH AND GREATEST EBAY AUCTION THIS YEAR will commence on November 8, 2014 at 04:00 PM EST - (09:00 PM GMT, 10:00 PM in Europe,  and 05:00 AM on November 9, 2014 Tokyo time)

 

In many ways, the next three auctions will be a culmination, an apex of this seller's life and work as a record collector: the pinnacle of 42 years of our record-collecting. While we will continue selling rare and collectible vinyl on eBay, we do not expect to ever top our next three auctions or ever again post anything of this magnitude and massive importance.

 

The FIRST LOT of more than 500 items, which starts on Saturday, November 8, 2014 (about half of the items will start on Saturday, the remaining items the next day, on Sunday) is particularly impressive: coming from a single source and from a single previous owner, this is an almost unbelievable collection of virtually the entire '60s Rock, practically the encyclopaedia of the most critical era of the Psychedelic Rock, Loner Folk and Acid Folk. Country- and Folk-Rock. Progressive, Jazz-Rock, Blues-Rock, and Singers-Songwriters of all kids, sorts, genders and ilks.   There is practically not a single major '60s act that is not included in this lot. This is truly a time capsule of the '60s in popular music, something that may never again be presented to the public either on or off eBay. 

 

BUT WAIT!...HERE'S THE BEST PIECE OF NEWS: THESE 500 ITEMS COME FROM A COLLECTION WE ACQUIRED SOME TIME AGO, IN WHICH ITEMS ORIGINALLY BOUGHT BY THE OWNER FROM THE MID-'60s to THE MID-'70s WERE KEPT STILL SEALED IN A NEAR-LABORATORY, CLINICAL, TIME-CAPSULE CONDITIONS AND IN VIRTUALLY CLIMATE- AND HUMIDITY- CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT.  CONDITIONS OF SOME OF THESE PIECES RANGE FROM IMPECCABLE TO TRULY UNBELIEVABLE, IF NOT DOWNRIGHT SURREAL (NO LESS THAN 440 OUT OF 500 ITEMS ARE STILL SEALED!!!). ON FIRST INSPECTION, SOME OF THESE BEAUTIFUL MUSEUM PIECES LOOKED SO PERFECT THAT WE HAD TO REINSPECT AND RE-EXAMINE THEM A FEW TIMES TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT RECENT REISSUES (REST ASSURED THEY ARE NOT -- WITH ONLY A HANDFUL OF EXCEPTIONS, THESE ARE ALL 40-50 YEAR OLD STILL SEALED ORIGINAL FIRST PRESSINGS AS YOU MAY NEVER FIND AGAIN!!)

 

You will be showered by tons and tons of STILL SEALED albums by The Beatles (both group- and solo), Jimi Hendrix, Rolling Stones, The Kinks,  Arthur Lee's Love,  Jefferson Airplane, Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan,  Tim Buckley,  The Doors,  Joni MItchell,   King Crimson, Van Morrison, Steve Miller Band, Moody Blues, Pearls Before Swine,  Procol Harum, Pink Floyd,  Santana, Soft Machine, Beach Boys, David Axelrod,  Bee Gees, Buffalo Springfield, Neil Young,  The Byrds,  Eric Clapton,  Gene Clark, Sandy Denny,  Marc Bolan & T-Rex,   Genesis, Yes, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Flying Burrito Brothers,  practically every single Millennium / Sagittarius / Curt Boecher / Gary Usher configuration, combination and permutation,  Nico, John Cale, The Velvets,  the Rascals, Randy Newman and dozens upon dozens of other big names. If an artist performed or was otherwise active in the mid-to-late '60s, chances are he is included in our next auction.

 

Mind you, we are NOT talking about lesser items, compilations, imports, reissues or later-day releases. We are talking about absolutely, positively ESSENTIAL, CRITICAL, era-defining moments in '60s Rock and Psychedelia:  You will find gems such as the STILL SEALED FIRST PRESSINGS of the Jimi Hendrix'  debut album,  the Doors' L.A. Woman, the Beatles' Revolver, Love's Forever Changes,  King Crimson's  In the Court of the Crimson King, Eric Clapton's Layla,  Joni Mitchell's Blue,  Neil Young's Harvest (and After The Gold Rush), Tim Buckley's Starsailor and Blue Afternoon,  T-Rex' Electric Warrior,  Buffalo Springfield's  first and second and third albums. Steve Miller Band's Children of the Future and Sailor,  Bee Gees' Odessa,  Gene Clark's  Fantastic Expeditions, White Light and No Other,  Pink Floyd's Piper at the Gates of Dawn, The Rolling Stones' Sticky Fingers and Exile On A Main Street...Leonard Cohen's  debut album ('The Songs of Leonard Cohen) --  the heart and soul, the body and mind and the very core and essence of the '60s Rock are here - and as pristine and untouched as the day they were born.

 

AND IT IS VIRTUALLY ALL STILL SEALED AND UNTOUCHED AND UNPLAYED FOR YOUR VIEWING, LISTENING (AND BUYING) PLEASURE I!

 

Ah, but wait!  We are not done yet!.

 

Not only are the critical artists and their essential titles represented, in many cases we  have the entire discographies by a specific artist:  You will see either complete-or near-complete album discographies by Arthur Lee's Love (every single album released between 1966 and 1974)...  Joni Mitchell...  Pearls Before Swine (all titles but one)...  Buffalo Springfield... the Byrds (all titles but two)...  T-Rex (practically the entire output through 1973)... Moody Blues (everything up to year 1973)...  Jimi Hendrix (all Reprise titles released through 1973... except for the 'Ladyland')... Jefferson Airplane (all titles but three)... Tim Buckley...  Kinks (the entire 1967-1974 discography)...   Procol Harum (all pre-1971 titles)...  The Nice... Emerson Lake and Palmer...  the entire Young Rascals discography but one title...  the Doors (roughly 60%)... Argent...Free....Richie Havens....every single Incredible String Band title save for the first album...HP Lovecraft...Randy Newman...Van Morrison...Judee Sill...you get the idea...

 

Wait, there's more!

 

If you are tired of the major and well-known, legendary artists, heroes and heroin(e)s - and villains and villainettes - of Rock'n'Roll and their  classics,  recognized masterpieces and major-league releases, have we got a world of surprises for you!: a TON of psychedelic obscurities, rarities and cult classics that will have you begging and pleading for mercy!

 

Among the highlights: probably the world's only known STILL SEALED copy of Steve Morgen's sole-titled first (and only) 1969 cult masterpiece ("Morgen"), easily, hands-down, no-contest one of the top-5 greatest and most coveted works of the Psychedelic Era, high on the want lists of just about every Psych collector worldwide;  one of probably less than five STILL SEALED copies of the monstrously rare Skip Spence's 'Oar' album, universally acknowledged as the single finest Acid Folk album in existence; probably the world's only STILL SEALED copy extant of the Dragonfly's first and only album on the private Megaphone label  probably the finest specimen of Garage/Fuzz/Hard Psych in existence (with the never-seen Megaphone sticker, too!); an incredibly rare copy of the Gandalf's first (and only) 1968 Capitol album; STILL SEALED copy of The David's 'Another Day, Another Lifetime,  STILL SEALED copy of the J.K. & Company's 'Suddenly One Summer', one of the most beautiful psychedelic works of all time,  STILL SEALED first album by the United States of America (the group, not the country :-), the pioneers of proto-Electronica Psych, STILL SEALED copy of Steve Baron Quartet's 1969 'The Mother of Us All', the mother of all moody, minor-key Jazzy-Folk-Psych titles,  monstrously rare Bobby Callender's second, privately pressed album ("The Way") on his own 'Mithra' label, Cressida's Asylum, easily the rarest and the most coveted of all British Progressive albums (and in condition that is nothing short of breathtaking)...and (literally) dozens upon dozens of obscure,  unknown, bizarro and one-off Psychedelic titles and oddities. 

 

Even by our standards, this is going to be one monster of an auction: we are dropping a BIG ONE on eBay: a gigaton of quality vinyl of all sorts, From moderately rare, to very rare, to brutally rare, to criminally rare, to insanely rare, to once-in-a-lifetime finds, every shape and shade of rare and collectible '60s vinyl will be covered.

 

Because the auction is so huge and covers so much ground, we recommend that you hit the ground running: the 7-day auction (half of which will end on November 15, 2014, the other half the next day, November 16, 2014) will probably end sooner than you can review all listed items!!! Just to give you an idea: we have already uploaded more than 6,000 images and roughly 4,000 pages of text for this incredible lot.

 

But – believe it or not – this is just a tip of the iceberg of what we will be offering over the next few weeks; a drop in the bucket of what we will be offering. But beware: if you have a heart condition, please exercise caution: what's coming  is not for the faint of heart or for the casual collector! We are bringing our heavy artillery in full force!

 

IF YOU THINK THIS IS THE GREATEST LOT OF VINYL EVER LISTED ON EBAY, BRACE YOURSELVES FOR A 20-COURSE MEAL WE ARE ABOUT TO SERVE YOU...JUST WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE OUR NEXT AUCTION :-). 

STAY TUNED FOR MORE BIG, BAD, BOLD, BOMBASTIC, DRAMATIC ANNOUNCEMENTS.  AND, BY ALL MEANS, PREPARE YOUR VINYL BUDGET FOR SOME SERIOUS DRUBBING AND MAULING  TO COME :-)

 

 

As always, we will have some of the rarest and finest pieces in the record-collecting hobby. Please visit our seller page and be pleasantly surprised!
