Item Description

Welcome to the Parlogram Store, our outlet for quality vintage vinyl & memorabilia

Everything we offer is FULLY GUARANTEED, so please buy with confidence


Released on 'Page One Records' in 1969 (POLS 016) but thanks to little/no promotion it flopped making it one of the era's rarest and most sought after albums. The album contains a heady mixture of psych pop, heavy R&B and comes high in the list of the rarest and most collectable albums of all time.

On offer here is a genuine UK 12-track stereo acetate of that LP. The disc itself is a heavy lacquer covered metal acetate containing all the tracks on the released LP. The tracks are correctly spaced and the sound is of master-tape quality and sounds better than some of the recent reissue pressings. 

We have recorded the disc and have included clips from four tracks for your to sample on the player below:

Both sides of the disc have typewritten labels but contrary to what they show, 'Pretty Girl Love You' is the final track on side 1 and 'Queen of Hearts Blues' is the final track on side 2.

The disc is housed in a plain paper inner-sleeve with the the group, LP title & catalogue number printed on Dynamo tape in one corner.


As you can see from the images there is some typical damage/wear associated with discs of this type and age on side 1 which bears a strip of discolouration to the lacquer at the end of track 1 on side 1. Both sides bear a number of small surface marks and light scratches but there is no cracked or missing lacquer on either playing surface. As already mentioned, the sound is of excellent fidelity but some light background is audible in quieter passages and between tracks. The only major audible issue we found was a the beginning of 'Mr Jones' where our stylus repeated on one groove. More audio clips are available on request.
