In the unlikely instance that you feel the need to open a resolution dispute before working with us, you will immediately be blocked from any further chance to acquire the rare music we present each and every week. Payment is required within seven days. 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 17,000 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!

PSYCHEDELIC '69 CLASSIC .... RARE U.K. TANTARA GATEFOLD ISSUE
...T H E M O V I N G S I D E W A L K S...
UK - TANTARA - 6919
RARE ... certainly well off the beaten path ... this was the very FIRST British issue and there were not many copies made ... upon thorough investigation of the release, it was issued at least 35 years ago with gatefold cover every aspect in appearance yto the mega-rare USA '69 pressing except this is not in unipack gatefold as the USA issue was ... In comparison to the USA issue the sound (quality) is 100% identical .
Our source explains this was the product of a small operation in the UK. Upon it's release - In 1981 there were copies of this pressing given to Moving sidewalks (& ZZ TOP) lead guitarist Billy Gibbons (call it a form of royalties paid) which Billy gladly accepted. ...
Great late sixties acid fried Texan psychedelic rock LP by future member BILLY GIBBONS of ZZ Top.
The Moving Sidewalks, as most of you know, were lacing it up with psychedelics & Jimi Hendrix karma...all said a terrific blend of fuzzed-out heavies with a stretch of the imagination creating most wonderfully...
This Houston's psychedelic '60s sensation... The MOVING SIKDEWALKS sole LP, from 1968, is definitely the psychedelic rock dreams are made of. Moving Sidewalks guitarist Billy Gibbons could certainly play incredibly well at this point. Gibbons admiration of Jimi Hendrix is played out on "Pluto-Sept. 31st," with a JIMI Experience-like riffing rhythm section and a studio freakout in the middle. The backward vocal of "Eclipse" is quite compelling (though the Zappa/Red Crayola-style production might harsh on your trip), and "Joe Blues" gives an indication of where Gibbons would be heading next. Other highlights (everywhere) include: "What Are You Doing to Do," "Every Night a New Surprise," the Elevators styled "Need Me" (complete with Roky Ericson styled wailing vocal), and eleswhere, actually, every tracko n either side of the platter are winners ...a tremendous LP when talking psychedelic '60s legends...
