Welcome to our listing…

Good luck being thefirst one to hit "Buy it Now!"...and you will own thisgreat record for many years to come!

OH!!...And enjoy the week-end!


Here are the details...
We are offering an ORIGINAL first pressing of the ONLY LP released by The Moving Sidewalks titled "Flash."
It was released on the independent record label Tantara Records, which was a locally produced and distributed label, Catalog number TS 6919 Stereo.
Released in 1968 this is one of the the Holy Grails of the psych-blues fuzz guitar rock LP rarities!
Pressed in extremely limited quantities (500?) and only distributed locally in Texas and surrounding areas.
Fantastic Guitar Moves played by none other than Billy Gibbons (pre-ZZ TOP fame).
The Moving Sidewalks did a number of dates opening for The Jimi Hendrix Experience on their 1st U.S. tour just after this LP was released.
Don't let this rarely offered ORIGINAL pressing get away!
CONDITION: VINYL:
Pretty Amazing condition overall, VG+ with only an occasional surface noise between tracks, and a couple of minor pops. I don't believe this record has been played very many time in its life.
Originals were not pressed on the best vinyl back in the day, most all had an occasional pop on the 1st play.
Original inner sleeve, no splits!
NO spindle marks on the label. Truly a "top shelf" keeper-copy!
I sought this out many years ago (in the early nineteen seventies before anybody was looking for it), and found it was most impossible to find, even then. Truly a Holy Grail!
CONDITION: COVER:
The cover could be a little better, over all its not as bad as the pictures might imply. I'd rate it an 8.5 on a scale of 10.
It has a few creases, bumped corners, and the early stages of ring wear that can be seen at the center bottom on the front. See photos… very acceptable even if you are picky.
No writing, No stickers or price labels EVER attached.
No splits, in the spine or to the seams, nice and tight. Although, each of the four corners have minor bumps (as stated above).
There is a hint of the beginnings of a split on the outer edge of the record's pocket (where the record slips into)
I believe you would be hard-pressed to find a much better copy out there!
Don't let this get away, you may not find another as nice as this one.
