    I just had this weird whim to look into Japanese prog. I figured there's gotta be some out there. And that got me thinking what other weird/rare stuff people out there might own? So what is the rarest/weirdest album in your collection?

    The rarest would probably be Agalloch's Pale Folklore wooden box vinyl, limited to 60.

    Kick Axe's "Vices"...what a great album. I'll trump that one with my pristine vinyl versions of that, plus Welcome To The Club and Rock The World.

    That's some good rockin' there...

    Midnights first solo disc which was supposedly autographed by Mid, which we later found out was not the case, but autographed by the dude who was sending the discs out, because Mid was not in Michigan at the time or some bullshit story lol

    I have the Japanese pressing with OBI of that White Sister CD as well - always loved that release. Kick Axe - Vices is awesome too, have all their CD's.

    I have 2 Vices LP's, and a cassette. WthC I have on LP, and RtW on CD, but the Vices CD trumps all.:D

    These 1st issues were rare, but the albums have been reissued diminishing their novelty.

    I'd say the two most ...Unusual and unheard-of things I have in my cllection, are a pair of albums I bought at a used book store. The first:

    [​IMG]
    Best I could describe it, as being like a Jazzy version of primus with a tendency towards freeform jamming. I can't find any meaningful information about the band. My dad bought it because he liked the album art.

    the other:
    [​IMG]
    Bought it on a whim because of the potential for cheeseball power metal suggested by the album art and band name., not knowing what to expect from it. What i got was some pretty good instrumental prog/fusion with some metal elements. And one very obvious Dixie Dregs tribute.


    Pretty sure the whole thing is up on youtube
    I actually like it a lot.

    If "rare" could mean "sells for a boatload of money on eBay" I have the s/t Kidd Wikkid cd from '92 (http://heavymetaladdiction.com/2009/07/10/ebay-madness-kidd-wikkid-st-1992-strikes-again/).

    I also have the similarly named Kid Wicked - Non-Stop Primitive (also from '92) featuring 2 or 3 future founding members of Balance of Power. I was looking for this one for a few years but it always sold for WAY more than I wanted to spend on eBay. My limit is usually $20 including shipping). After watching them show up occasionally someone put one up with a $10 buy-it-now price. Happy me!

    I also own Quiet Riot's QR1 and QR2 - high quality Japanese bootleg or promo copies. Since they were never officially released on CD I'm not sure which. Excellent quality inserts and factory pressed discs.

    My most recent rare find is The Loveless - A Tale of Gin and Salvation from 1995 (basically it's The Electric Angels with a new guitar player).

    I'd say the rarest cds I have are some limited pressing blues cds: Larry McCray and the Bluegills: Meet Me At The Lake, Little Jimmy King's Something Inside Me, and a bootleg live SRV called Stiletto Rain. In the metal realm, how about Kingcrow's Something Unknown and Timetropia. And although it is no longer rare since he released it VIA iTunes, but I have a hard copy of Dennis DeYoung's Broadway style musical, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, from when I caught it live in Nashville way back in 1997.

    These are pretty rare (well, the 3rd album not so much but the first two are).

    I have that Kick Axe on vinyl and CD as well. Great album.
