Act One - 1st

BEGGARS OPERA Act One (Rare 1970 first UK issue 5-track LP on the large 'swirl' Vertigo label, with 1Y-1/2Y-1 matrices, housed in a matt gatefold picture sleeve with the original '1070' die-cut swirl inner. This debut introduced the band as a major player in the early British symphonic prog scene. Obtained from the private archives of a one-previous owner collection, the Keef designed gatefold sleeve is Excellent, stored away from direct sunlight. The labels have a small amount of foxing with only a couple of spindle marks to show it has been played whilst the vinyl remains very clean with little evidence of play. As good as it gets!)
