Comus: same (3 Song EP) 1971, UK/Dawn DNX 2506. Disc is M-, no spindle marks on the labels, it looks unplayed! Flipback art sleeve is in nice EX shape with a minor dirt ring on the front panel (the disc has pronounced, serrated rings around the edges of the labels that made the soft paper sleeve bulge, making it a dirt magnet). Stunning example of Comus' debut waxing! This band was something very special, as any folk rock collector will tell you. They were f*ckin' scary! Dark, menacing lyrical imagery and incredible musicianship. Their LP First Utterance is the standard-bearer for the Acid Folk genre. This EP contains three non-LP tracks including an earlier take of "Diana" than the one that appeared on the First Utterance album soon after, so it's not hard to imagine that Dawn didn't keep this 7" in the shops for long. This is very rare, and a TOP copy! Check out the earlier version of "Diana" on YouTube via this link:
