1ST PRESS- VERTIGO UK 1970 SUPER SWIRL!
****VERY SCARCE DEBUT - FINAL UPGRADE*****
MATRICES: 1Y//1 2Y//1
A REALLY HARD SWIRL TO FIND,ESPECIALLY IN THIS BARELY PLAYED SUPREME CONDITION
+++ THE BEST ORIGINAL I HAVE EVER SEEN+++
ELUSIVE PROGMONSTER!!!STUNNING SONG CRAFT!!!AN INSPIRATION TO MANY SUBSEQUENT PROG TOP ACTS!!!
!!!!AN EXTREMELY HARD FIND!!! A few hundred (rumoured to be around 500) were ever pressed of this fantastic prog/psych album. It is hard to understand why this never sold in larger numbers.
In all my years this is only the second time I have come across this PROGMONSTER of which only 500 are rumoured to be about. Rare ... anyone?? This one is more desirable still as the vinyl has barely been played.
Sensational sound quality, I have played this through in its entirety and it was a great joy!!! NO skips or jumps. NO clicks or crackle, this is really a stunning heavy glossy jet black vinyl . Inspected under an intense light source and angled.
This one is a continuation of of Kaleidoscope though the change of band identity seems to make a lot of people stop at Faintly Blowing. This is the exact same band and there is no drop in quality on this album and I actually find it to be a better album that Faintly. Blissful psychedelic pop/rock and plenty of it.
This album's low ranking really makes me sad. It is one of the best albums of 1970 imo. For whatever reason this stunning album, without filler and now rightly regarded as a lost classic, sold zilch!!!
Vinyl: EX++!! A sensational find!!! I have played this in FULL twice over> The replay is ASTOUNDING!!! I first played for a general listen and a second time for a more detailed observation. There are NO jumps NO skips NO sticks. This vinyl has barely been played. There are no hairlines at all even under a strong light source this vinyl is close to over the counter condition. There is still some vinyl debris within the spindle hole from the manufacturing process suggesting barely any play at all!!! This is the ultimate MUSEUM copy that will serve as a very healthy investment for the future!! I am very glad to be able to report that this is a fine slab of vinyl without any problems at all and as such worthy of inclusion of any great prog collection.
Gatefold Sleeve: EX++. NO creases. Wonderfully textured gatefold sleeve. A sensational upgrade hardly found in this beautifully preserved condition. The inside gatefold is likewise in stunning condition. Beautiful deadstraight edges and a great crisp opening. These matt Vertigo sleeves are prone to extensive wear. This one is very close to perfect!!! Just one very shallow mini crease, hardly visible to the right top. I think it will be a very difficult task to find this album at all any time soon, leave alone in this STUNNING condition!!! The spine is 100% without ANY colour loss at all. It is extremely hard to find this album at all. Finding it in this supreme condition is nearly impossible!!! I can only publish 12 pictures in the listing and realise that more pictures may be required for collectors of top items. Please do not hesitate to ask me for alternate views etc. and I will gladly provide these.
Please also have a look at my other listings this week which include Pink Floyd's Piper (1st UK press) and Pete Brown - A Meal you can shake ...
Inner Vertigo Swirl sleeve: EX condition. The original poly lined inner!! Only some slight yellowing near the edges. Hard to find swirl inners that have not yellowed somewhat. One piece of tape on one side.
This is a unique investment opportunity!!! Nowadays any Vertigo Swirl is very collectable. There are, however, a select few, not more than a dozen or so that will raise the pulses of collectors around the world. This is one of them!!! This album is impossible to find esp. in this sublime condition!!! One of half a dozen of hardest to find Swirls, probably with "Ben", "Catapilla" and "Tudor Lodge".
This is a great and seriously collectable super album!!
Labels: NM!!! Unbelievable!! Still like it was bought all those years ago.
Though there are rarely ever any problems with my items, I always try my very best to describe everything exactly! PLEASE REMEMBER to contact me FIRST, if you have any problems at all, before you leave feedback and star ratings, so I get a chance to turn any negative experience into a positive one! I can always happily sort anything out for you, if you let me know you have a problem! This way no one has to leave Negative/Neutral feedback - and we both walk away happy! Similarly with the amount of stars, anything less than a full 5 * rating is effectively detrimental to a seller's rating as lower ratings will incur higher Final Value Fees and lower priority in the bidlists eventually making it unattractive to list items on Ebay at all. I know of at least one major previous Ebay seller who has decided not to list via Ebay again. Please do NOT bid if you cannot give me at least 1 chance to sort everything out to your FULL satisfaction in the unlikely event of a problem. Thanks again!!
This an excellent investment opportunity!!! Any questions please ask me and I will try to answer soon.
