In all my years this is only the second time I have come across this PROG MONSTER of which only 500 are rumoured to be about. Rare ... anyone?? 
Great sound quality, I have played this through in its entirety and it was a great joy!!! NO skips or jumps. A couple of low level clicks here and there but not intrusive at all, this is really a stunning heavy glossy jet black vinyl .  Inspected under an intense lightsource and angled.
 
            This one is a continuation of of Kaleidoscope though the change of band identity seems to make a lot of people stop at Faintly Blowing. This is the exact same band and there is no drop in quality on this album and I actually find it to be a better album that Faintly. Blissful psychedelic pop/rock and plenty of it.

 For whatever reason this stunning album, without filler and now rightly regarded as a lost classic, sold zilch!!!



       Vinyl: VG+/EX.  A sensational find!!! I have played this in FULL twice over> The replay is ASTOUNDING!!! I first played for a general listen and a second time for a more detailed observation. There are NO jumps NO skips NO sticks. No bad marks or hairlines, just paper retraction traces visible under a strong light. There is just one very shallow scuff on the first track side 2, which actually does not impact on the audio!!! I am very glad to be able to report that this is a fine slab of vinyl without any problems at all and as such worthy of inclusion of any great prog collection.
 
     Gatefold Sleeve:  VG+.  NO creases. Wonderfully textured gatefold sleeve.  The inside gatefold is really nice. Beautiful flat sleeve . These matt Vertigo sleeves are prone to extensive wear. This one has an amount of edge wear from storage. The colours are still really rich. The spine is partially readable. There are no splits or tears. There is a colour fill down the left front bottom.  I think it will be a very difficult task to find this album at all any time soon!!! It is extremely hard to find this album at all. The pictures shown are part of the description.










This is a unique investment opportunity!!! Nowadays any Vertigo Swirl is very collectable. There are, however, a select few, not more than a dozen or so that will raise the pulses of collectors around the world. This is one of them!!! This album is impossible to find esp. in this sublime condition!!! One of half a dozen of hardest to find Swirls, probably with "Ben", "Catapilla" and "Tudor Lodge".
 This is  a great and seriously collectable super album!!

Though there are rarely ever any problems with my items, I always try my very best to describe everything exactly!  PLEASE REMEMBER to contact me FIRST,  if you have any problems at all, before you leave feedback and star ratings, so I get a chance to turn any negative experience into a positive one!  I can always happily sort anything out for you, if you let me know you have a problem!  This way no one has to leave Negative/Neutral feedback - and we both walk away happy! Similarly with the amount of stars, anything less than a full 5 * rating is effectively detrimental to a seller's rating as lower ratings will incur higher Final Value Fees  and lower priority in the bidlists eventually making it unattractive to list items on Ebay at all. I know of at least one major previous Ebay seller who has decided not to list via Ebay again. Please do NOT bid if you cannot give me at least 1 chance to sort everything out to your FULL satisfaction in the unlikely event of a problem.  Thanks again!!


International postage: This item will be sent tracked and insured if over £30. This will incur a Royal Mail fee which is to be added to the invoice. In this case please wait for me to send out the adjusted invoice. Thanks!
 
 
This an excellent investment opportunity!!! Any questions please ask me and I will try to answer soon.
