Tracklisting & More Information

Let's start with the iconic Robert Stace 'Clarifoil' front laminated picture sleeve as it is without doubt one of the most recognisable images of the Mod era.

When this album was released it was an instant classic and consequently was taken to parties a lot and played to death or scratched. We've seen many copies of this album over the years but don't purchase them that often due to the poor condition of the vinyl and/or sleeve.

The sleeve on the UK original was like many other released at the time, front laminated only. This meant that the back was just exposed paper. This laminate was all important for protecting the sleeve against spills, smudges and dirt in general and it did a great job, but we could never understand why sleeves weren't laminated all over?!

So back to the condition - The front of the sleeve, having been protected by the laminate for almost half a century, is striking.

The pinched spine is clearly legible with only the odd tiny spine crease and very little in the way of edgewear - a really nice example

The rear of the sleeve shows minimal age discolouration, very hard to believe this is over half a century old. The original owner has carefully written her name and date of purchase to the top right corner. A very striking & lovely example, fit for framing.

The labels are black Brunswick in design with striking silver print & deep grooves. They are free from any defects, with only a few spindle marks around the centre hole on both sides to indicate play.

The matrix numbers are as follows :-
Side One MG-10256-2B
Side Two MG-10257-2B

The vinyl is in amazing excellent condition, considering it was one of the greatest party albums of all time. The combination of heavyweight vinyl & careful, one ownership, handling have led to a copy with barely a trace of play; still gleaming and free of the usual deep scratches, beer stains and body fluids that often grace this gem of an album.

We have play tested on a stereo setting and not mono, and were amazed at just how nice this sounded. There were minimal pops or clicks, and the breaks between each song were silent apart from the warm sound or vinyl.

Apart from a few shortcomings with the sleeve, this really is an Excellent example.
