Album cover “Out of our Heads”

“Out of Our Heads” is The Rolling Stones’ third British album and their fourth in the United States. It has significant track listing and album cover differences between territories.

Transcript of the original liner notes:

Its a new Rolling Stones album, strictly out of their heads, and out of those five extremely talented heads come twelve great new sides recorded in London, Chicago and Hollywood. From Chicago come the Otis Redding songs, -That’s how strong my love is,” “Have mercy,” and the Stones’ own tribute to the backroom boys of the music business, entitled, “The under assistant West Coast promotion man.” From Hollywood, comes the Marvin Gaye opus, -Hitch hike.” Then there are smash singles, “The last time” and Satisfaction,” “Play with fire,” and two from Mick and Keith, “The spider and the fly” and “One more try”. The boys have included a great Solomon Burke ballad, “Cry to me.” The last outing from Hollywood is by way of a tribute to Sam Cooke, who was one of the greatest talents to emerge in the rock.n*roll era. The Stones have given a great treatment to Sam’s “Good times.- Last, but not least, from London, we have included a number recorded during a Rolling Stones Concert Tour of Great Britain, a great live rendition of their own composition, “I’m all right”- We hope that this album gets you out of your heads listening to it, as we got making it.

LED ZEPPELIN – PHYSICAL GRAFFITI 12″ LP ALBUM VINYL

A0630 LED ZEPPELIN Physical Graffiti
Front album cover

“Physical Graffiti” is the sixth studio album by the English rock band Led Zeppelin, released on 24 February 1975 as a double album. Recording sessions for the album were initially disrupted when bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones considered leaving the band. After reuniting at Headley Grange, the band wrote and recorded eight songs, the combined length of which stretched the album beyond the typical length of an LP. This prompted the band to make Physical Graffiti a double album by including previously unreleased tracks from earlier recording sessions.

Front cover of “Rhythm & Blues” by “Bintangs”

This album “BINTANGS Rhythm & Blues PROMO ” is a 12″ Promotional LP and has been distributed to DJ’s. The label has “Special DJ Pleaser” printed on it (near 3”o clock)

The Bintangs is one of Holland’s oldest rock/blues-rock bands and was formed around the year 1961 and are today (2019) still active. They started in 1961 as a so-called Indorock band (“Indorock” comes from bands with people of Indonesian origine playing rock and roll and knowing for their lively acts, eg: The Tielman Brothers). Therefore the band-name comes from the Indonesian word “Star”.

Transcript of the original liner notes:

The Bintangs have always had a unique, progressive sound. They started out in the mid-sixties and l many other groups then they drew heavily upon American Blues and Rhythm and Blues. They even played in one program with the Rolling Stones , The Kinks and at one tine there was a strong rumour that Van Morrison would join the Bintangs as a lead singer. However nothing came of it… and then again they didn’t really need him. Gus Pleines who is one of the two original members still in the band became their singer. Together with Frank Kraayeveld, the bass-player they went through it all., Favarable Criticism , troubles with managers, producers, record companies and their executives. They even had some hitzsin Holland and Germany (Ridin On The L & N and Travellin In The U.S.A.) in 1969-1970. After that they seemed to have disappeared but they reformed, added some young blood and cut an album -Genuine Bull- with Steve Verocca at Rockfield Ln 1975. The album did pretty well and the Bintangz were ready to record another album but none of the major companies wanted to deal with them not realising the power of Bintangs’ Rhythm and Blues. So Dynamite Records picked up on it and recorded them live at their hometown; and Ln August 1977 at the famous Rockfield Studios, with Sean Tyla producing. They put one another through a lot of hassles but the band got what they wanted, a raw, lively, shattering sound.

This e.p. holds four tracks and introduces you to Bintangs’ music: Rock, Rock, Rhythm & Blues,it must be be going round.
