Item Description

LEONG LAU Dragon Man LP, Sunscape Records LP 10001, Australia 1976.
Very rare album, an interesting collection of loose funky songs with driving bass, interwoven withstriking lead guitar. The enigmatic Leong Lau sings, plays flute, sax and more. Apparently he studied Chinese Opera, was part of the Sydney Dance Company and attended the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.
Essentially a private pressing - Sunscape, described as a non-profit body on the sleeve, was based in Darlington, Sydney. Pressed by M7 Records.
VinylVG+ -mostly in excellent condition, clean with only a few spindle marks, sounding fine. It has, however, had some poor handling at some point. There are a few light marks or hairlinesand a couple of short surface scratches which don't sound on my player. One track has a short series of soft clicks in the middle. There is some light noise between tracks. The final track, a short poem, has a bit more surface noise, which seems to be a pressing issue. Labels clean.
Cover VG+, some handling wear. Short tear rear leading edge, some lamination lift, bumped lower left corner, a few score marks and light scrapein one area of rear (on his hat, left of his chin). Insert has a bumped middle fold on one side, causing some creases.
