Tracklisting & More Information

Condition :-

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 has been protected by the laminate for the last fifty three years & is still striking. The pinched spine is clearly legible.
The sleeve overall shows moderate wear, the worst of which is a 2cm tear to the opening on the front; the reverse shows some discolouration with the top & bottom edge showing discolouration from an earlier tape-reinforcement, althought there are no seam splits.

The labels are black Brunswick in design with striking silver print and deep groove. They are free from paper loss with a hard-to-spot black pen name annotation to side1 & fair amount of spindle marks around the centre hole on both sides, indicating fairly frequent play - and why not ?

The vinyl still remains in VG-/VG condition which, for one of the greatest party albums of all time, is quite remarkable. Although many light surface scuffs & axial lines are visible, these are mainly cosmetic in nature with just the odd 'click' evident at times. Background noise is at a minimum throughout. A true classic.
