A FEW OF THE ITEMS WE WANT...

THE SPECTRES Hurdy Gurdy Man (Ultra Rare 1966 UK stock copy 7" single with four-prong centre, which appears to be just as rare if not rarer than the demo version. Here we have a very early single from the band that would eventually spawn the legendary Status Quo, featuring core members Francis Rossi & Rick Parfitt as well as former members John Coghlan & Alan Lancaster. This is a far cry from the Rock 'n' Roll now associated with the band, falling under the category of Psych-Pop/Freakbeat. Also features 'Laticia', die-cut company sleeve. The vinyl grades VG+/EX- with a few faint cosmetic scuffs to show play & a nice deep sheen both sides. A major Quo rarity in nice condition - not to be missed! 7N35352)

Tracklisting: 1. Hurdy Gurdy Man 2. Laticia

THE SPECTRES I (Who Have Nothing) (Monster Rare 1967 Japanese wide centred 7" vinyl single, featuring a pre-Status Quo, Francis Rossi (guitar, vocals), Alan Lancaster (bass, vocals), Roy Lynes (keyboards, vocals) & John Coghlan (drums). The Spectres signed a five-year deal with Piccadilly Records in the summer of '66 & this was their debut single, produced by John Schroeder, it hit the British record shops in September & then worldwide in Japan in January the following year. It remains one of the most elusive records relating to the mighty Quo! Our Japanese buyer had to stray further afield in order to find one for the first time. Featuring 'Neighbour, Neighbour' on the b-side & complete with the original die-cut company sleeve & unique wraparound lyric picture sleeve, see 'more info' for condition details... LL-1002-Y)

Tracklisting: I (Who Have Nothing) Neighbour, Neighbour Condition :- Only the Netherlands & Japan had a picture sleeve to go with this single. Here is the unique Japanese-only artwork, a curious design in full colour, the sleeve is a wraparound insert with a '67.1' release date printed on the back, manufactured from thin paper stock. There are crease marks from handling but no tears, foxing or writing. The lyrics to both songs are printed inside in English. Very few of these ever appear to hit the online market. The labels are unscathed & near mint. The vinyl grades VG with just the lightest few paper scuffs to identify play on the A-side. There is a tiny scratch mark on the b-side which does not affect play & little if any other cosmetic blemishes of note & performance is far higher than this initial visual grading. A remarkable find & ideal for the serious Quo collector.
THE SPECTRES Hurdy Gurdy Man (Rare 1966 UK solid centre demonstration vinyl 7" for the single release, with release date of 18 NOV stamped on the label, also including Laticia, Piccadilly company die cut sleeve. A very early single from the bandthat would eventually spawn the legendary Status Quo, featuring core members Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt as well as former members John Coghlan and Alan Lancaster. This is a far cry from the Rock 'n' Roll now associated with the band, falling firmly under the category of Freakbeat. Taken from the collection of former BBC radio DJ Mike Read, this single has been lovingly cared for. Despite a bit of paper loss caused by the removal of a historic sticker, there is not a single mark or blemish to the playing surface. A Quo rarity in fantastic condition - not to be missed! 7N35352)
