Item Description


**More rare titles up for sale, check my additional listings. 
Hands down this is one of the UK's best late 60's Progressive/Psych LP's ever made, just incredible from start to finish. 
They only made one LP, this is it, before parting their own ways and continuing into other notable bands. This LP started it all. From here they lead off into May Blitz, Catapilla, Julians Treatment and more. A superb and extremely rare and sought after UK LP. 
Here's your chance to own a UK 1st press, these don't come up often, especially with NM vinyl/Audio.

Label: Philips SBL 7891

Grading 
Vinyl - NM
The playing surface is just to die for, please view the pictures and close-ups. Vinyl plays through without any major issues. NO loud or continuous hiss/crackle. Looks like a deep glossy reflective mirror. A couple of very minor surface marks barely visible on B side, some soft clicks quarantined to track two but they are soft, sporadic and only for a very brief section of track two side two, they really are nothing to worry about. The audio/pressing is loud, clear and crisp, punchy and silky smooth. Soft static between tracks only but barely audible. The songs vary in their dynamics throughout the LP, it's not all loud and defining psych riffs and the Philips pressing captures these audio changes beautifully. I can barely fault this record, it's just wonderful. 
Sleeve - EX
Gatefold sleeve laminated front and back with cardboard inside. Straight edges with very soft storage wear, no rips or seam splits and a solid straight spine uncrushed. All text on spine is still visible and fully readable. Top left of sleeve has a small area where laminate has lifted, but not cracked or torn at all, visible in pics. Opening the gatefold has a smooth action with no awkward folds along the centre crease. A very small and minor area and just the top layer along the bottom edge has lifted off, shown in pics but nothing bad and a small area. All text is clearly visible and readable within the gatefold. All edges, seams and centre fold are sealed as they should be. Opening edges of sleeve are crisp and straight. 
 Labels - NM
Stunning. No rips or writing and barely a single spindle mark. Beautiful.
