Item Description

OBERON - A Midsummer s Night Dream - UK LP RARE Acid Folk OBE LPS1 Acorn 1971

This Is A Very Rare Find 1 of only 99 ever made. This is a acid folk gem that rarely appears in any market. Brief history is it was recorded at Radley College Near Oxford by classrooms N1 and N2 on the day after the end of term, it took over 6 months for only 99 copies to be pressed and it was released to the band and a few friends at the end of term 1971. These private pressings are generally rubbish but not this one its a acid folk gem and for me stands above a lot of major releases from that era, its a must for any serious collection and rarely is offered for sale

Label:UK Acorn records limited private pressing with 1A and 1B machine stamped matrix numbers


Sleeve- Made from thin non laminate Card it displays some sign of aging, a name is written on the top rear, there are no seam splits

Labels - Both A and B label are clean, free of any marks with no sign of spindle wear

Vinyl - EX free from surface marks and scratchs

Insert - Has some aging and creased mostly in one corner

This is what has been said about it more recently:

It s not often that a really scarce album is very good but this is a real UK folk rock gem. Released in 1971 in an edition of only 99 copies, Oberon s Midsummer s Night Dream is not only one of the rarest folk-rock records to ever see the light in the UK but is also considered one of the top works in its genre. Decorated with lilting vocals , inspired violin and flute playing, electric and acoustic guitars and other instruments old and new this is a magical album.

Winning bidder can collect the Record in person, Item is located in West London.
