This is one of the most sought after LP's of the Psychedelic era: The original 1967 UK mono first pressing of Kaleidoscope's "Tangerine Dream" LP (Fontana TL5448). This is the real deal 1st press mono original.
The condition of this LP is fantastic. You will struggle to find a better copy. This album represents one of the finest moments in British Psychedelia.
The Flip Back Sleeve: Excellent
The front cover of the sleeve has retained its glossy sheen, and the colours remain deep and vibrant, there has been no fading. On very close inspection the only minor flaws I can point out are some light creases to the right side. The back cover of the gatefold is very tidy, with clean flip backs. The inner section has grown very slightly off-white over time but this is only minimal.
Poly lined inner sleeve is included. It has some fading.
The Vinyl Excellent +
The LP is in superb condition. Even under bright light I see only a few small hairlines and light sleeve scuffs, but these are virtually invisible under normal light. It has a bright shiny deep gloss.
The playback is fantastic with clear dynamic audio throughtout.
