Kindred Souls: same 1976, USA/Bio-Centennial Records BC-001. Disc has some scattered tiny marks, I heard a few stray ticks on playback, it gets a VG+ grade. I tracked down a band member about 30 years ago and got a few unplayed copies from him, but they were dirty and none were M-. Plain white cover with front and rear paste-on slicks is M-, and it has two inserts. Bonus non-LP 45 is M-. Mega-rare private LP by a hippie folk outfit from northern California, incredibly charming paste-on sleeve design (blow up the last pic!) and the music falls somewhere between A Cid Symphony, Gabriel Gladstar, and the second Mighty Baby. Eastern/guru aura, melodic acoustic instrumentation, rural granola get back to the land aesthetic. If you dig the vibes that the best private press folk LPs emanate, this one will take your breath away. Band includes Douglas Adams from Wailing Wall (Rockadelic) and Light Rain.
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. The discs 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 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.
Note to International buyers: I DO NOT USE EBAY's GLOBAL SHIPPING PROGRAM. Rest assured that your Customs forms will be processed by me and your package will be postmarked/mailed at my local Post Office. If you are unable to bid on my auctions, send me an email and I will try to fix the problem.
After the auction: I'll send you an invoice within 24 hours. If you want a price for double-boxing or other special services, send me an email and let me know.
Please note that I collect sales tax from buyers living in California, as required by law.
