We mail all paid items ONE WEEK after auctions end. Please keep in mind our listings are time consuming in detail and we are often traveling to find these gems, which at times delays the delivery schedule by a day or two. We ALWAYS process and ship every paid order. We have no control over parcels once they are mailed from our local Post Office. Overseas mail to some countries (Italy, Russia, France, in particular) has became very slow. Opening a dispute for slow mail is unacceptable and will result in blocking the bidder. We work hard to provide excellent service as is represented by our 8000 plus positive feedback.   We use a VPI machine and thoroughly clean all records. Each order is carefully packaged by removing the LP from the jacket to avoid seam splits, use of 3 ml plastic cover sleeves over each LP and jacket, cardboard pad inserts, and placed in sturdy record mailers for safe delivery.   We take Customer Service seriously, and want you to be satisfied. Please give us 5 stars in each category through the feedback system, and we will be able to effectively continue to fulfill your passion for rare and collectible music!

COLLECTION COPY! includes a clean gatefold cover!!!
HARD TO FIND minty clean...essential 1968 first pressing vinyl in thick gatefold cover...thee ((original)) very first album and one of the great psychedelic blues gems of the hippie era.
A psychedelic blues rock-out, 1968's Children of the Future marked Steve Miller's earliest attempt at the ascent that brought him supersonic superstardom. But this debut is nothing like the commercial plateau reached nearly 10 years later ...Recorded in 1967 at Olympic Studios in London with storied producer Glyn Johns at the helm, the set played out as pure West Coast psych-rock inflected grooves intriguingly cloaked in the misty pathos of the U.K. blues ethic. Though bandmate Boz Scaggs contributed a few songs, the bulk of the material was written by Miller while working as a janitor at a music studio in Texas earlier in the year. The best of his efforts resonate in a side one free-for-all that launches with the keys and swirls of the title track and segues smoothly through "Pushed Me Through It" and "In My First Mind," bound for the epic, hazy, lazy, organ-inflected "The Beauty of Time Is That It's Snowing," which ebbs and flows in ways that are continually surprising. The second half of the LP is cast in a different light — a clutch of songs that groove together but don't have the same sleepy flow. Though it has since attained classic status — Miller himself was still performing it eight years later — Scaggs' "Baby's Callin' Me Home" is a sparse, lightly instrumentalized piece of good old '60s San Francisco psych. His "Steppin' Stone," on the other hand, is a raucous, heavy-handed blues freakout with a low-riding bass and guitar breaks that angle out in all directions. Children of the Future was a brilliant debut. And while it is certainly a product of its era, it's still a vibrant reminder of just how the blues co-opted the mainstream to magnificent success.
"Children of the Future" - 2:59 "Pushed Me to It" - 0:38 "You've Got the Power" - 0:53 "In My First Mind" - 7:35 "The Beauty of Time Is That It's Snowing (Psychedelic B.B.)" - 5:17 "Baby's Callin' Me Home" - 3:16 "Steppin' Stone" - 3:09 "Roll with It" - 2:30 "Junior Saw It Happen" - 2:30 "Fanny Mae" - 3:09 "Key to the Highway" - 6:18
