Loads of rare Porcupine Tree , Steven Wilson, Bass Communion and No-Man stuff

 

A particular fave is Longbranch Pennywhistle - s/t ... it's the band that Glen Frey of the Eagles was in with JD Souther before he started the Eagles (VINYL).

 

I'll have to have a look when I get home.

 

Maybe The Godz - Mongolians on CD.

I honestly have no idea what mine would be. I look over my entire collection and I'm not sure I have any "true" rarities. Not like the ones I see dudes here speak of.

The Unknown Big Dreams

 

The Cult Rare Cult Boxed Set

 

Lillian Axe Love and War - original MCA pressing

 

The Babys Union Jacks and On the Edge - original Chrysalis pressings

The Babys Union Jacks and On the Edge - original Chrysalis pressings

 

Yeah I have all The Babys CD's on Chrysalis - I didn't realise the Chrysalis versions were rare until about a year ago.

On the matter of the Babys - I have the "Official Unofficial Babys Album" that came out a few years ago on ORK records and that's pretty rare now.

My rarest would I have to say is a local TUCSON, ARIZONA band called INNER FEAR that came out in 1992 it is silver pressed so it fits nicely in my all silver pressed quantity quality all silver pressed collection Oh a few facts on this cd 1. Only 250 were pressed 2. Me, Martinsane own 1, and one band member has 2 copies (one for sale at right price) the others ???? so would say its pretty rare, but I do own the more well known rarities such as CONCRETE JUNGLE, KIDD WICKKED, JILLSON, WHITE EAGLE just to name a few. BOY I love collecting cds!!!

I wouldnt really know whats that rare in my collection to be honest, I mean I never realised the Shake the faith Jap CD was considered a rarity, so who knows whats rare in my collection.

I know theres a Ted Nugent one thats tough to get hold of (cant remember which one) and then theres the Metal Shop and Metal Skool CDs, I spose.

I do have the Floyds Funk Revival one, which I know is kinda rare.

I think the Snakepit Rebels debut is a bit rare, maybe.

 

Other than those, I dunno.

One of the rarest I have now is Angel's 'Blowing Great Guns' 2 CD. Someone offered me a stupid amount of money for it a while back.

 

I have loads of others that are rare'ish and go for a few quid, but nothing in the major league.

I've got quite a bit of rare CDs (Taken, Sweet Teaze, Schoolboy Crush, Pretty Wicked, Dr Grind, Jillson, New Dynasty, Concrete Jungle, Eli....and I could go on).

 

But I think the rarest CD I have may be Soren - S/T. It was a demo only and I'm sure there aren't many copies floating around out there. Not sure it sells for as much as many of the rare CDs I own, but rarity wise I think that may be the one...but I'm not completely sure.

That Soren disc is a good one and agree, it is a rare one, but probably wouldn't fetch the Friction kind of $$$, for what reason I don't know.

 

 

As James mentioned I have that Innerfear disc and with only 250 pressed I would say it is pretty elusive.

 

And as Steve mentioned, I have some of the staple rarities: Concrete Jungle, Emergency, Villan, but would say discs like Storm Within, Dead Serious, Hello/goodbye, Tresspasser, etc... are just as rare, just as good, but unknown to the masses.

 

The rarest cd I have, however, is from 2009! That's right, this year! Only 3 copies exist! The 3 discs were made at Ardent studios, one kept by the engineer and 2 given to the bands guitarist and in turn one was given to me! The cd in question is: TOP HEAVY CRUSH-S/T

The disc is brilliant and unfortunately do to extenuating circumstances will never see the light of day....

Rarest CD I own would be Oslo - Oslo, as far I know there were only a 100 pressed way back in 1991.

This is one of the finest melodic rock gems out there & truely worth its value :beerbang:

    • just heard another snippet and it sounds identical again. I'll give this a go for sure but this dudes songs all sound the same. it's a bit weird 
    • From Frontiers: BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of BLACK ROSE MAZE, a new project centered around the talents of the awesome Canadian singer Rosa Laricchiuta. Rosa Laricchiuta is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Montreal, Quebec. After several years cutting her teeth with live shows, she auditioned for the third season (2015) of "La Voix", Quebec's version of the popular TV show "The Voice”. Rosa had an instant connection with the legendary francophone rocker Éric Lapointe and chose him as her coach. Rosa showed a solid stage presence, with remarkable intensity and a voice so powerful, it sent her straight to the Grand Finale where she shared the stage with Def Leppard, Kelly Clarkson, Jean Leloup, and her idol, Melissa Etheridge. She left a lasting impression as she won over millions of viewers who named her the new "it" Quebec female rocker. She then released one album in the Quebec market before beginning work on her first English language album in 2016. That album, “Free" was released the following year and at the end of the year, she joined the popular American band Trans-Siberian Orchestra for their annual mega tour of the United States. Rosa was then brought to the attention of Frontiers by none other than fellow Trans-Siberian Orchestra bandmates and now labelmates, Dino Jelusic (Animal Drive) and Jeff Scott Soto. Rosa will now front her very own hard rock project and will be working diligently on it over the next few months. Stay tuned for more news as it becomes available. https://www.facebook.com/Blackrosemaze/   Some songs from her 'Free' EP.          
    • Lmao. Obama had both houses in the hands of the GOP. Trump ha had the benefit of having both houses and still has to make shit up of things his administration has accomplished.  It's sad that some fellow worshipers of the greatest music ever are ignorant buffoons. Glad to see there are some intelligent people too.   
    • Just watching Police academy 4 and this song came on, and I forgot how much I loved it. Back in the day when this movie came out I bought the soundtrack vinyl and as someone who was only just dipping his toe into rock at the time, and listened to a lot of pop I loved this album. Listening to this song now, it gives me a cool lightweight AOR vibe, which is weird considering when I just looked this band up they are actually a country rock band, yet no signs of country on this one. Autograph and Loverboy come to mind for similarity.  
    • greed,very much in the vein(not as good as) Wild Rose and last years  Odyssey Desperado,very safe but why oh why make a lyric video when the lyricas are so silly? Is it just to emphasise it?
    • lol @ the lyrics. This reminds me of that recent band that had very bad lyrics and cool melodies. But it's cool like those bands like Wild Rose, and others I can't think of at the moment. The one that starts with an L? Who knows... but it's nice safe melodic rock with silly lyrics. 
    • And here it is... it's on now?! Oh well, here it is. One of the coolest songs I've been enjoying in 2018, and probably AW's best song to date;  
    • I don't know where we've been posting about new releases from these guys through the years, but they've been churning them out at a decent level. There's a cool tune on the new album referencing this dream of theirs; that they're not in it for success but for the love of the music. Anyway... They haven't been setting my world alight, and no album compares to their debut, but they're okay. Anyway, the new mini-album (7 tracks) is mostly more of the same. But there is one song that has actually set my 2018 playlist on fire, which I think a lot of people here would like.  And, just found out it's not on youtube.   But it's called 'Get It On' and I'll try to post it when it's available. Get your ears on it if you can. It actually may appeal to the synthwave fans here... not that it's a synthwave song. But it's well off the AW beaten track... but in a great way.  This song is quite fine too, though, just to have something to post;
