SPRIGUNS Jack With A Feather (Very, very rare original 1975 UK 11-track vinyl LP pressed in tiny quantities on the cult Alida Star Recordings label, thin card picture sleeve which has been autographed by the band. This debut long playerhas attained legendary status in folk & psych circles with its blend of traditional instrumentation, electric guitar and bass and the haunting voice of singer/guitarist Mandy Morton. It’s a classic progressive folk album that transcends the genre, wonderful playing throughout with a distinct acid/wicker folk vibe on key tracks. This wonderful collector’s copy has been signed by the band in blue pen next to their respective images on the front (although we think Tom Ling signs the Chris Russon picture as Chris had left by the time the album was released), in the centre there is the unique dedication “To Martin wot is very good. Luv Spiggles”
