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, with only some light discolouration to show for being in the wild for over 50 years. The pinched spine is clearly legible with only the odd tiny spine crease and hardly any edgewear. The rear of the sleeve shows an area of discolouration and general age yellowing which is mainly focused around the perimeter, and very faint ringwear. Overall it remains in great shape, and will be a talking point of any serious record collection.

The labels are black Brunswick in design with striking silver print & deep grooves. They do show some spindlewear when held under light to indicate the album has been played and enjoyed, but it does not take away from the classic label design.


The vinyl has been graded as VG+ condition, which considering it was one of the greatest party albums of all time is superb. The combination of heavyweight vinyl & careful ownership have led to a copy with only a handful of light surface hairline marks, which are purely cosmetic. Following a play test, there is only the occasional light crackle in some of the quieter passages and between tracks, but it does not detract from the sonic audio quality of this timeless record. The vinyl has been professionally cleaned and is still gleaming, free of the usual deep scratches, beer stains and body fluids that often grace this gem of an album.
