LOVE Forever Changes (Very rare first press MONO 1967 UK 11-track vinyl LP from Arthur Lee & co, widely considered one of the Top 10 must-have psych records from the sixties, with A1/B1 matrices, ‘rough’ textured solid orange labels & fully laminated picture sleeve with pinched spine. The sleeve has only light signs of creasing to the laminate at the edges and a little age related wear with no rips or tears. There are a few spindle marks on the labels to indicate play (who wouldn’t want to spin such aclassic?) but nothing excessive. The vinyl has been professionally cleaned & despite a few light scuffs & hairlines the playback quality is superb – any surface noise is kept to a minimum. This is a respectable VG copy of a must-own sixties original! EKL4013).
CARAVAN Waterloo Lily (1972 UK first press 6-track LP on the tan & white Deram label, the band’s fourth longplayer with a distinctly jazzy feel & the only album to feature Stephen Miller on keyboards. Includes the twelve minute plus suite ‘The Love In Your Eye’. Comes housed in the original matte gatefold sleeve detailing a scene from “The Tavern Scene” [or The Orgy] from A Rake’s Progress by William Hogarth with artwork of a large buxom lady spread across the inner sleeve. Classic Canterbury Prog! This is a superb one previous owner example. The cover appears Near Mint with few signs of any wear & the vinyl is nice & clean & grades Near Mint with merely the lightest paper hairline from being taken out the inner bag in no way affecting play. The best copy we’ve ever seen! SDL8).
