    I've got a reissue that came out a few years back; pretty readily available. If you've got to have an original pressing, that might take a bit longer... ;)

    It was "awhile back" or 10 or more years ago. The last couple of years, nothing but what you mentioned. Truly the "good old days." They are still out there, but more people are looking.

    Not exactly rare, but you won't come by them intact. I got this in junior high, while living in Utah.

    Volumes 1-12 of Alain Kremski's recordings of Gurdjieff/De Hartmann pieces. I've never seen another photo of the complete collection.

    Took me 10 years of Ebay notifications and Amazon searches to collect them all, the last was found in Germany just last year.

    Nice! Sometimes it takes serious perseverance and dedication to complete a collection, well done!

    Nathalie Archangel - Self-titled, 1987.

    A pretty good album that the record company failed to promote. It just disappeared.

    Slow Magic - Triangle, 2012.

    This one was tough to find on vinyl. From Portugal, ambient, downtempo electronic. "Music by your imaginary friend."

    I bought mine used not too long after it came out and the box is a mess, but the LP's are in pretty good shape.

    I about fell over when I found it. The funny thing was that it was in the bin backwards. I looked at the back and thought that it looked like some late 60's, early 70's band. Then I flipped it around. What's even cooler is that it's a promo (you can see the "Free" in the upper corner).

    I have to admit that I am in a good spot for thrift finds. There are a lot of retired military here and as they donate their collections I get all sorts of foreign stuff. As you might guess I'm a fan of Wishbone Ash and I've picked up immaculate copies of their albums from Great Britain, Germany, France, Canada and the Netherlands for pennies. Same with bands as disparate as the Beatles and Van der Graf Generator. And while the ability to find vintage equipment at the thrifts has all but dried up here, I still find plenty of good albums. Not quite like the 128 album haul and the 164 album haul I had 8-10 years ago, but I often come home from hitting 2-3 thrifts with 10-15 good LP's.

    George Benson & Al Jarreau - Givin' it Up, 2006.
    Limited Edition Super Disc + HDS Surround DVD

    Got this at a fundraiser from Head Monster, Noel Lee. I remember trying to sell and give this away awhile back. I'm glad I still have it. It sound freaking amazing.

    Matisse et la musique. Centre Pompidou, 2006

    "Henri Matisse used to work by listening to Jean-Sébastien Bach.

    But its for music does not end there. The artist has collaborated in Stravinsky's "Chant du Rossignol", he frequented Eric Satie, Prokofiev, Gershwin and realized the album of collages "jazz"."

    Rod Stewart ‎– Every Picture Tells A Story. Taiwan, 1971
    Tailee ‎– TLA-6736

    I've had this album for years and it may be the first time it's been played. I always thought it was some cheap knock off. It's not. The jacket is printed really weird. It looks like a bad photocopy wrapped completely outside and inside in something like shrink wrap. The record, surprisingly sounds pretty good.

    Some old rocker brought this and a bunch of others from Taiwan to California. This is the only one I grabbed.

    I have a Johnny Cash LP in the same vein, Everybody Loves a Nut, on red vinyl. I've also saw Ferlin Husky and Hank Williams, Sr., though the vinyl was standard black.

    My mother survived Hiroshima. She spoke French and turned me onto Hank Williams. Imagine that after the war in Japan? I still listen to Hank. Good stuff.

    If I ever get back into my storage bin, I'll check the "Gs" for this one, pretty sure I have 2-3 copies of it, and send you one. If I ever get back into my storage bin. <sigh>

    These Trails (S/T, 1973)

    One of the best (soft) Psych LPs in my collection. Band were based in Hawaii. The sound of main vocalist Margaret Morgan (RIP) is sublime.
