Item Description

This is one ultra rare LP that never seems to show up. Amazing Private Press Xian Folk Psych Girl Group Released in a very small run on the Mark custom label. Ken Scott rightfully gives it high praising in the Archivist , which is an excellent guide book I recommend folks pick up if they re into this cool niche. Personally as a collector of this exact sort of stuff, this is one of those rare Private Press Xian records that lives up to the hype and then some, I encourage those unfamiliar to check out the clips on the discogs page The title track is sublime.

Vinyl Condition: VG - VG I know this immediately seems misleading, but that is the inverse of my intent with this hyphenated grade. It does have some paper scuffs, nothing feel-able, no deep gouges, the main deal is a lot ingrained dust, a VPI could do wonders for this. I know that it is a very enjoyable play, loud press, so surface noise isn t really an issue at all. It s one of those strange cases where the visual is definitely a VG, but the sound is absolutely VG , and the visual could be improved with a VPI.... so that is my lengthy explanation, meant to elucidate, and be thorough, I can say you won t be disappointed

Cover Condition: NM still in shrink

Label: Mark

Year: 1968
