***CHECK OUT OUR OTHER PROG & PSYCH AUCTIONS THIS WEEK!!!***
As a defining point of the U.K. psychedelic/progressive rock crossover, the Open Mind's sole album is the perfect specimen. With a singing style rooted in the freakbeat era, rather than the operatic tenor screams hard rock ushered in, and acidic duel guitars, heavier than those of a typical psychedelic act, The Open Mind filled the gap between the beginning of one era and the end of another. Magnificent! "Girl, I'm So Alone" -- a remake of early Open Mind line-up, mod band the Drag Set's "Get out of My Way" -- harks back to a 1967 feel, as do a number of other songs that show the band being not quite as progressive as they intended. However, both the heavier and mod styles work well.
Tracks Are :-
Side One
Dear Louise
Try Another Day
I Feel The Same Way Too
My Mind Cries
Can't You See
Thor, The Thundergod
Side Two
Horses And Chariots
Before My Time
Free As The Breeze
Girl I'm So Alone
Soul And Will
Falling Again
Released on 'Philips Records' in 1969
Catalogue No.SBL 7893
Disc is in EX++ condition (a very well looked-after copy - shows just a few fine hairline marks under strong light)
Sleeve is in EX++ condition (again, this has clearly been well cared for - just a little laminate lift towards the spine-edge and a few laminate crease lines across the centre - still a really nice example)
Please contact me via Ebay Messages with any questions I will try my best to get back to you as quickly as possible.

---------------------------------------------------
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT COMBINED SHIPPING ON ALL 12" VINYL / LPS / 12" EPS / 12" SINGLES - PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY!!!!
We offer combined shipping on all LPs / 12" Vinyls: our shipping rates are listed above. HOWEVER shipping packages that weigh more than 2kg is VERY expensive. Therefore we can only offer combined shipping up to a maximum of SIX (6) LPs / 12" vinyls. Any extra purchases will be invoiced, packaged and shipped separately.
***Due to the physical logistics of how I can package orders, I will not combine box sets with other items, I will only package them individually***
---------------------------------------------------
COMBINED POSTAGE FOR DIFFERENT FORMATS will be invoiced at my discretion:
While I am happy to combine (for example) one or two 7” singles into one package with 12” records, sometimes it simply isn’t practical (like if you want me to combine one 12” record with three or more 7” records). I simply do not think that these combinations can be packaged together safely and securely. Therefore these will be invoiced separately as two packages.
IF YOU ARE UNSURE, please contact me before bidding!
---------------------------------------------------
Sorry but I am no longer willing to carry combined transactions beyond two weeks of auctions (see below).
---------------------------------------------------
PAYMENT
I would appreciate payment within seven days of the auction’s end. If you want to bid on more of my auctions ending a week later please inform me. I will wait and issue a combined invoice at the close of the second week’s auctions.
However, I am no longer willing to carry combined transactions beyond two weeks and in these cases would appreciate payment promptly after the close of the second week’s auctions.
I am sorry to have to introduce these measures – I always try to be patient and allow buyers to bid on extra auctions and / or delay payment. Unfortunately some buyers have been stretching out transactions to unacceptable lengths so I feel I have no option but to limit ‘carried over’ transactions to two weeks.
