Diabolus: same 1971, Germany/Bellaphon BI 15144.
Disc and cover are both in lovely M- shape; no way to upgrade this, I think! Stunning example of this KILLER evil UK prog band's Germany-only LP produced by Shel Talmy! Diabolus could beviewed as a heavy prog rock version of Comus... they sound similarly possessed and they tend to play frenetically, likethey're
fueled by a combination ofblack magicand methamphetamine!
These guysrehearsed until they couldn't breathe- you can tell
by the intricacy of the songs. Stunning playing throughout,
great creepy cover (these dudes are scary-looking, they're
probably all in prison now), and there's not a songonit that
any radio programmer would have picked... unless threatened with
voodoo dolls or something. I love it! Check out the opening track on YouTube via this link:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QK2Sj93TaX0
and then imagine ANY other drummer trying to play this one!:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tX3kubcYGiw
Everything I offer is guaranteed. I try to note any flaws with the disc and the cover so that there are no surprises when the box arrives. Be sure to view my other iamthewitch auctions as I have other interesting items up for grabs this week.
I ship all records in strong cardboard mailers with cardboard flats added to increase stability. Thediscs are always removed from the jackets to prevent seam splits, and all albums are dressed in plastic sleeves for travel. Please be aware that these supplies are expensive to purchase and may represent a small portion of my shipping charges. I pack/ship one day per week, usually it is Friday.
USA: I can send this LP to you by Media Mail for $5.00, or by Priority Mail, which will be calculated after the auction using your zip code. Most of my customers prefer Media Mail because it is very cheap. Please keep in mind that it's cheap because it is SLOW. I have had Media Mail boxes take two months to travel cross-country.
CANADA: If you are in Canada, I can send this LP to you by 1st Class Airmail for $17.00. This service offers no tracking. If you want online tracking, ask me about mailing options.
EVERYWHERE ELSE: If you are not in the USA or Canada, I can send this LP to you by 1st Class Airmail for $23.00. This service offers no tracking. If you want online tracking, ask me about mailing options.
