War Ina Babylon - Test Pressing

MAX ROMEO & THE UPSETTERS War Ina Babylon (Archive Investment Grade Test Pressing for the 1976 UK 9-track LP, often referred to as one of the "holy trinity" of Lee 'Scratch' Perry masterpieces recorded at the Black Ark Studios in '76/'77 [The Heptones' Party Time & Junior Murvin's Police & Thieves being the other two]. Obtained from a former industry exec at Island, the studio labels are test black on white with 'Island Records Manufacturing Ltd' print. Both sides are hand annotated in blue biro with the catalogue number, side details & the proposed '20-7-76' release date. This is one of a few select handful made, purely to test the sonics & never sold to the general public, complete with the retail picture sleeve & powder blue company inner. Both the sleeve & the vinyl are truly stunning, near 'as new'. Impossible to find in near perfect archive quality ILPS9392)
