CHAMBERS BROTHERS - Shout! (Vault) USA 1968
Pretty cool gritty r'n'b album; had they added some fuzz on a few tracks on the raunchier first side you'd see it described as 'funky black psych!!!' & with a far more respectable pricetag. But hey, "dig it for what it IS, man."

Record: s1 EX, s2 G, but with very light surflines only.
Cover: semi-weak VG, but it displays rather well despite the following: some seam/spine/cornerwear; light ring/shelfwear obc; bottom seam split 1" at middle; bc slick a bit wrinkled at spine; some faint creasing at spine; odd indentation marks ofc; drillhole.
Price: SOLD

NEW! ELEPHANTS MEMORY - Angels Forever (RCA Victor) USA 1974
Not until recently had I realized that Chris Robison (who had a couple of private LPs) was part of this band, once associated with Lennon. I reckon that as sales talk it's now more effective to mention Robison than Lennon, at least in these circles. Title track here's a pretty cool hard rocker, by the way.
Record: VG+; has a visible surfmark s2, but this is inaudible & the rest has just a tiny bit of innersleeve scuffing & looks pretty much unplayed; micro warp nap.
Cover: VG+; downgraded because of a kinda ugly sawcut, apart from this minimal overall wear only.
Price: SEK 80 / $8

JOHN ENTWISTLE - Whistle Rhymes (Track) Germany 1973
Record: VG; last couple of tracks s1 looks a bit funky, but there's no affect on play.
Cover: nice G; fo; seam/spine/corner/edgewear; minor ring/shelfwear; some creasing at spine.
Price: SEK 60 / $6

EVERY MOTHERS' SON - same (MGM) USA 1967

1st & not as good as the follow-up, which could be the best Fredric-on-the-cheap album you'll find, but solid groovy 60s pop with garagey vibes, cheesy organ, vocal harmonies... check ut "Allison Dozer". Mono.
Record: VG; light lines/marks do very little; micro warp nap.
Cover: VG+; fo; light overall wear only + punch hole.
Price: SEK 50 / $5

EXOTIC MUSIC OF ANCIENT CHINA (Lyrichord) USA 196?
Lui Tsun-Yuen on pipa and chin. There are at least a couple of slightly different pressings for this title - the one here has Lyrichord logo & # + 'Stereo' in a rectangle upper right corner ofc & richer/fuller colour to artwork.

FAT MATTRESS - II (Polydor) Norway 1970
Neither of their LPs is solid, but this follow-up's kinda overlooked in comparison to the 1st, with plenty of enjoyable &
occasionally mildly psychedelic stuff (admittedly some corny UK pop stylings as well).
Record:
strong VG; faint background surfnoise s2t2, but mostly playing very nicely.
Cover:
G; bottom seam has a 4" split, which ends in a tiny tear bottom front, and a hard-to-see pin hole in each of the top corners, but apart from this it's a nice cover with just very light overall wear + a shop stobc.
Price:
SEK 150 / $14

FERNE - Snapphanar (Tredje Tåget) Sweden 1982
Small label concept release from 1/2 of Risken Finns. Oddball record with mostly idiosyncratic folky stuff & setting - acoustic guitar, fiddle, accordion etc - but opening track has cheesy synths painting a very different picture, while another cut is sorta jazzy, and closing track is recitation & effects only.
Record: EX; looks unplayed except for super-tiny mark s1t1 which pops once.
Cover: strong VG+; shop & price stkrs ofc + some light wear bottom seam, rest's very insignificant overall wear only. Insert.
Price: SEK 80 / $8

NEW!
FERRIS WHEEL - same (Uni) USA 1970
Uneasy UK mix of pop/rock/soul with Linda Lewis on vocals, but it opens with a killer "Keeper of the Keys" (original, not a cover of any other track with the same name) in that Brit psych-into-early-prog vibe which spawned some truly great music (Ghost, Julian's Treatment, Velvett Fogg come to mind). Shame that the rest of the LP didn't stick to this sound, but "Sunday Times" does & is also really good, as is the odd "Little Indians" which moves into folk psych with hand percussion & haunting vocals. Promo.
Record: nice VG.
Cover: F; quite a bit of typical wear all over + small sample stobc. Not trashed!
Price: SOLD

NEW! THE FLOCK - same (Columbia) USA 197?
Slightly later red/orange label pressing of their 1969 debut - plenty of hot guitar leads from Fred Glickstein.

discolouration ofc; also lbl stoc + lbl wobc (as per usual with the Columbia/CBS shift).
Price: SEK 80 / $8

NEW! THE FLOCK - Dinosaur Swamp (CBS) UK 1970
Record: s1 F because of some scary-looking lines & they cause pops & surfnoise during the short & quiet intro track, but after this their affect on play has mostly disappeared; s2 G, plays fine.
Cover: G; fo; seam/spine/corner/edgewear; some ring/shelfwear; bottom seam split all the way, but repaired & looks pretty good; flat spine; small tobc; hard-to-see stains obc; light soiling ofc; some wear obc at opening.
Price: SEK 60 / $6

NEW! FOREST - Full Circle (Zap!) UK 1988
Single-sleeve re of their monster 1971 2nd. To me, Forest are up there amongst the very best UK folk psych ever, with a sound definitely influenced by ISB, but losing much of the whimsiness in favour of something darker, near-pagan at times, and a sadness/melancholy which frequently becomes very intense & moving. Writing this it dawned on me that I've had Forest being a big part of my life's soundtrack - ever since I was 16 - and yet I return to them regularly still & everytime I do so I disappear into a damp English stone cottage, there's wood (or peat) smoke in the air & if I look out the window a horse-drawn carriage with a band of gypsies disappear into the mist. If it's really late I might even hear Joan Melville knocking on the door, and when I open it she takes off her hood, shakes out her hair & then asks me to marry her. It could happen to you too!
Record: VG+
Cover: beautiful EX; basically looking brandnew.

49th PARALLEL - same (boot) Euro 1980s
Ancient boot in blue monochrome cover of 1969 Canadian psych/pop/rock outfit; "Close The Barn Door" is a classic from the Endless Journey comps & sounds like something that could've been released on IA - killer track.
Record: EX
Cover: very strong VG; minor cornerbump + wear (not full split) 1" mid-top; shop/distribution stoc; rest's really minor overall wear only.
Price: SEK 250 / $24

Price: SEK 100 / $10

NEW! FREEDOM SINGERS 1970 - Antiimperialistiska Sånger (Befria Södern) Sweden 1970
Primitive political folk, but of note mainly because of the great full band fuzz rockers "Richard Dollarhjärta" & "CIA-visan" (and a great Nixon/LBJ satire ofc). A true relic of the Swedish far left of the times.
Record: G; mostly just light lines & scuffs, but pressing's on the cheap side so there's seemingly always some background
noise/light crackle on this title.
Cover: very strong G; some seam/spine/cornerwear; ring/shelfwear (mostly ofc); light bends & creases; minimal wear f/b at
opening. Thin, flimsy cover pretty much always looks like this or a lot worse.

NEW! GODZ - Godzundheit (ESP) USA 1973
Comeback 4th from legendary NYC weirdos & quite a bit different compared to their earlier LPs - here they go for a garagey sorta folk-rocking/ssw street vibe, plus some harder rockin' cuts as well. It's still offbeat enough to assure you they weren't aiming for the big league though - check the lovely Virgil Caine-like lead guitar on "Women Of The World", for example. Their take on "Jumpin' Jack Flash" might be the only version of this song that I like! Quad.
Record: VG; small scratch s1t1 causes a few pops at the very beginning, and another tiny one s2t5 pops a bit towards the end, but the rest plays very nicely.
Cover: VG; seam/spine/cornerwear; very light ring/shelfwear; a few light creases; very light cornerbends/bumps; minimal wea f/b at opening.

THE GOLDEN GATE - Year One (Audio Fidelity) France 1969
Orchestrated US pop in neat cover with a slight sunshine vibe & show tunes feel as well, original material. "In a Colorful Way" is by far the best, as it's only a few steps from moving into full-on popsike mode. Odd LP, who was the targeted audience?
Record:
F; mostly light marks & low grade's noticeable primarily via surfnoise between tracks.
Cover:

JIMI HENDRIX - In The Beginning (Shout) Canada 1972
1966 recordings with Lonnie Youngblood; I hadn't heard this in, what, 20 years maybe & was surprised at how good it is, esp the 11:24 "Let The God Sing" is awesome - and sounds way ahead of its time for the vintage.

Essential LP with Thomas Tidholm backed by his old Harvester pals; has a unique rustic sound/feel which really can't be
compared to anything else. More song-based than Harvester/TGS, but you can definitely tell that it's coming from that deep
melting pot of a head scene. Highly recommended!

JONATHAN KELLY - same (Parlophone) UK 1970
Soft singersongwriter, overly saccharine at times, but he has some great songs - I've always dug "Denver", "Son Jon" & "Daddy Don't Take Me Down Fishing" - and there's solid playing from Ashton, Gardner & Dyke + an uncredited Clapton. Wish they'd used the tablas on "Sailor" more though! Seems to have become more sought-after lately. Very nice copy.
Record: strong VG+; looks perfect at a quick glance, but close inspection reveals some very light surflines.
Cover: VG+; faint stkr stain ofc + light overall wear only.
Price: SOLD

KING-KONG - same (Sky) German 1981
Rather obscure kraut title with an odd sound including lots of electronics & robotic moves, right down to semi-spoken vocals, but there's also some highly unexpected harmonica on one song + one campfire acoustic guitar-based tune, as well as near-hardrock & mildly funky stuff. Housed in a suitably odd/great cover.
Record:
some light surfmarks/scuffs cause a bit of noise here & there, mostly of a background character but more noticeable during the very first few seconds s2t1, while are parts play pretty much perfectly... so say VG on average but less at times & better at others.
Cover:
nice VG; light seam/spine/cornerwear; light ring/shelfwear; very light wear f/b at opening; some really light creases; tiny cornerbumps.

NEW! MARIE KNIGHT And Her Singers - Lord I've Tried (Savoy) USA 1979
Gospel/soul with powerful vocals & full band backing, including some snappy uncredited lead guitar. Things get almost funky on the cool "What A Difference". Whenever I see this cover I find it hard to believe it's from the late 70s.
Record:
s1 VG+, s2 G, both with rich shine but there are light surflines/marks too - plays very well though; minimal warp nap.

Black label with the '2nd' NCB logo, I can't quite recall if there was a slightly earlier press with the 1st logo.
Record: strong VG; some really light surflines only.
Cover: strong VG; very light overall mostly & would be a grade higher if it weren't for a name wofc - pretty big, but faint - and a rubber stamp ofc - again, pretty big but not very visible/disturbing.

LARS LYSTEDT SEXTET - Jazz Under The Midnight Sun (Interdisc) Sweden 196?
Early-on 2nd pressing of 1963 LP; mono.
Record: overall strong G; nice & shiny with only very light surflines & it plays fine, except for intros s1t1 & s2t1 where there's more surfnoise & a bit further in s2t2 where a scratch causes some very brief & not-too-bad noise.

SHADES OF MacMURROUGH - Carrig River (Polydor) Ireland 1973
Rare & great Irish folk LP with a sort of enticing airy, innocent feel.
Record: hmmm... this one's kinda difficult... lots of surflines & scuffs, but it plays a nice & solid G, i e fully enjoyable, despite the quiet nature of the music. You might however have to adjust your tracking force a bit - when I played this at 1,7 g, there was a faint, muffled background noise here & there on one track, and on another track there was a brief skip. At 2,0 grams neither of those was an issue.
Cover: G; light ring/shelfwear; light seamwear; slightly more wear to spine + it's a tad flat; some bends & creases; lamination has come off a tiny bit top spine/top corner at spine; light wear f/b at opening.

3rd & last; again a rare & great album, a bit earthier than their 1st one & to me stronger overall. Some truly beautiful songs here.
Record: G; nice luster, but plenty of light marks & lines - plays a nice G though, with most of the lesser moments (ticks, surfnoise etc) being of a strictly background character.

one side G, the other strong F; both with light surflines/marks only.

LE MALOUF TUNISIEN (El Fen) Tunisia 196?/7?
Different from the above, this is a full-length 12" LP with - as far as I can tell - anonymous players. Excellent instrumental music with a wide array of string & reed instruments, some with percussion backing as well. Sparse performances with one or a few players at most. Very cool simple cover design, with slightly embossed print ofc, blank die-cut back.
Record:
looks strong F; lots of surflines & scuff marks, but very light ones only & apart from light surfnoise between tracks you won't notice very much.
Cover:
G; some seam/spine/cornerwear; minor ring/shelfwear; wofc; small price tag ofc; light soiling f/b; very small tobc; some bending & creasing - very thin, flimsy cardboard, so the latter seems more or less unavoidable.

MANFRED MANN - What A Mann (Fontana) UK (or is it Australia?) 1968
Long time since I heard this, so I gave it a brief spin & it was much better than I remembered, even some faint psych & early prog undercurrents and rather solid - if a bit lightweight - from start to finish.
Record: s1 G, s2 F, both with light surflines/marks only, plays ok.
Cover: F; some seam/spine/cornerwear + spine has a 3" split at middle; light ring/shelfwear, a bit more obc; bottom flap has a tiny tear at opening & a bigger one at right hand corner; some creasing & bending; minor wear at opening f/b. Front looks rather good & it's not terrible overall either.

PAUL MASSE - Butterfly Lake (Liberty) USA 1968

Rare original Mozambique release (this came out in Portugal as well, under a slightly different title). Fine LP in a sort of folksinger style, with various stringed instruments & percussion, long tracks.
Record: overall G & mostly playing very nicely, but s1t3 is F due to odd superficial (pressing?) marks which cause background crackle for half the track; also some sort light inaudible 'flames' on both sides.

Very rare V/A LP with vocals, cora, sabarr, tama, riti... great stuff. I'm guessing it's a circa late 60s release. Mono.
Record: looks P, with lots of marks/lines etc, but nothing super-bad. Plays between P and up to VG (for a couple of tracks). Tiny warp nap.
Cover: lower end of F; seam/spine/cornerwear; ring/shelfwear; tofc; wofc; staining & soiling; bends & creases etc. It should be noted that it's a thin & flimsy cover & thus more or less bound to come with severe wear.

Some truly out-there reed-based tracks (esp on s2) with humming/chanting vocals; interesting stuff going on both tonally & harmonically. Some percussion too & at times there's an almost free jazz-esque vibe to it - SO far from the watered-down versions of this music typically encountered when only scraping the surface.

Private Hawaiian folk/softrock with acoustic guitars, flute, cello, hand percussion (full drums on one track) etc + vocal harmonies. Fairly underrated LP - certainly no lost monster, but tracks like "So Free" & "Seabird" with cello & sound effects definitely live in the same ethereal island world as These Trails. 1st pressing.
Record: G; faint background crackle on s1t3, but overall playing grade & better.
Cover: G; some seam/spine/cornerwear; ring/shelfwear; light cornerbend/bump; light wear f/b at opening; very mild water damage to lower right corner - it's barely visible/feelable.

OUT OF FOCUS - same (Kuckuck) German 1971
Rare kraut LP, 20 years since I last had a copy & while that one came from a monster 10,000 piece collection, the bulk of which burned, this one involved a whole lotta serious heartbreak on my part just to be able to grab it & put it up here. Long story, but obviously you might be in for heavy stuff if you decide to go for it. And don't tell me that's not the best sales rap you've ever heard.
Record:
S1 VG+, s2 VG with just some light surflines. Plays nicely all-through with - at worst - some VERY minor background
surf noise (something which comes seemingly with all copies, including mint ones).

Scarce debut LP from one of the biggest names in present-day Sami music. This is however not a folk LP, but rather an extremely 80s-sounding mishmash of things... including a Lennon-cover. Pretty rare though.

POLIITTISTEN LAULUJEN PARHAAT (Eteenpäin) Finland 1971
Seldom seen & really cool Finnish comp, released on a Love sub-label. I'm guessing there's some sort of concept/theme at play here, but it's all lost on me apart from the fact that the whole LP hangs together really well with well-written songs & elaborate arrangements in a pop-rock-folk style which at times borders on sunshine pop, but there's also jazz & bossa influences, and strident femme vocals & an undefined but strongly Finnish edge keeps it well away from any cheesiness. Third track on s2 has a riff that could have been Hawkwind, had the setting been (very) different!
Record: s1 VG, s2 G with light surflines only.
Cover: VG; light seam/spine/cornerwear; light ring/shelfwear; some very light bending/creasing; small price tag ofc; minimal soiling.

RETSINA AND BOUZOUKI Greek songs of Love and Loneliness (HMV) Greece 19??
Very rare V/A 10" with Stelios Cazantzides, Yota Lydia, Polly Panou, Emmanuel Angelopoulos a o. Mixed vocals. I'd hazard a guess that it's an early 60s release, but I really don't have a clue. No matter what, it's a great 'authentic' record & some tracks - like the opener on side two - are downright excellent.
Record: 
looks a strong F; quite a lot of light surfmarks, scuffing etc, but nothing very deep or serious & it plays rather good - some surfnoise, but apart from between tracks you won't notice much.
Cover: 
semi-weak G; seam/spine/cornerwear; minor ring/shelfwear; tiny splits both seams at opening; some light bends/creases; light wear ofc at opening; very light soiling obc; minimal tofc.

NEW! REX RICHARDSON - Crescent Phase (Sage) USA 1980
Very rare & still rather obscure private pressing with one side guitar soli stuff, including the stunning "Arabesque", and the other with added vocals, hand percussion & flute for more song-based stuff. Highlight here is the folk psych killer "Inside The Hours Of Dawn". There are several cover versions, and this is - as far as I know anyway - the very first, of which no more than 100 copies were made, signed & numbered (this being #36; one "Sara" also signed, and I read somewhere that she's the one who did the cover), housed in an awesome screenprinted cover.
Record:
VG+
Cover:
G; front slick is a tiny bit oversized/off-centre, so there's some wear & minor tears along sides, mostly at opening; some ring/shelfwear; minor ding obc at opening; light cornerbumps.
Price:
SOLD

NEW! ROCK 'N ROLL / LOVE ROCK 1967-77 (Love) Finland 1977
Scarce comp with Blues Section, Hurriganes, Albert Järvinen, Freeman & lots more; wild, dirty rock n' roll which likely will appeal to those into punk & garage as well, if your ears are big enough. Finnish vocals on most tracks add another dimension as well - to a non-speaker like me, they make the end result come across as even more unhinged.
Record:
G
Cover:
VG; some wear + 1" split bottom seam, apart from this it'd have been a grade higher with just light overall wear.
Price:
SEK 250 / $24

NEW! RUSTIC HINGE & THE PROVINCIAL SWIMMERS - Tea On The Lawn For Three (High on the Pyg Track/Thylacine) UK 2022
Recently released massive 2LP set, housed in a thick gatefold cover, of fantastically far-out sounds from 1970. The history is too complex to get into here, but it involves members from the Crazy World of Arthur Brown, and has ties to a bunch of other underground acts of the time, plus the legendary Rustic Rod is all over much of it. There are distinct Beefheart influences at work, but these guys have a way more friendly freak vibe than the Captain ever did, not to mention it's also utterly British. Which in the end might leave us where Phil A's been standing for a while: "a more musically-adventurous Broughton Band". Regardless, this is real-deal underground head sounds conjuring up pictures of rusty vans, people living in tipis, Nik Turner honking his horn on a free festival & the revolution's just around the corner - and I love it for exactly those reasons.
Records: New/unplayed.
Cover: New; insert + "token" for a deal on purchasing the backwards disc (see below) from the label.
Price: SEK 380 / $37

NEW! RUSTIC HINGE & THE PROVINCIAL SWIMMERS - Tea On The Lawn 4 4 (High on the Pyg Track/Thylacine) UK 2022
This is a 3LP set, which includes the double above, plus a separate disc in its own cover. The thing to note about the latter is that, while it contains no music no on the 2LP set, it sequences the tracks differently, and - more important - it actually plays from the label outwards, as true to the band's original intentions when this was planned for a Dandelion release! I only have one copy of this set.

Cover: New; with inserts.

RÖDA KAPELLET - Party Music / Partimusik (Avanti) Sweden 1976
Fun oddball Swedish prog that's difficult to describe - from heavy & powerful (check the great "Morron Med Siw") to goofy & plain weird, sometimes during the course of just one track (like the 10:20 "Bingo Flamingo" & 16:09 "Lärling"). Mixed vocals.
Record: looks G with lots of light marks/lines, but plays very nicely.
Cover: nice G; seam/spine/cornerwear; ring/shelfwear; light cornerbends/bumps; very light scrape marks obc at opening; very light wear at opening f/b; some faint bending & creasing. Insert.

SKY SAXON BLUES BAND - A Full Spoon Of Seedy Blues (GNP Crescendo) USA 1967
Sticking to useful buyer information, I feel obliged to reveal that the original owner of this eventually became the mayor of a small north-Swedish mountain town, before his premature death a few years ago. Not really familiar with his politics, but with a bit of Sky in his youthful head/veins I guess it can't have been all bad. Tatty copy, but somehow this goes well with the sleazy up-to-no-good sounds.
Record: F; lotsa marks/lines/scuffs, but it plays through & in a not too badly manner either; stol s1.
Cover: F with all sorts of blemishes - some writing, black tape on top seam, minor soiling etc etc, but nothing totally horrible.

NEW! STRAWBS - Grave New World (A&M) UK 1972
This is where they lose me, despite some lovely melancholic melodies, and sitar, tablas, backwards bits, mellotron etc sprucing things up... Too proggy, I guess (hearing this for the first time in ages, I thought they move into an almost Spring-like sound here & there).

TRAFFIC - Last Exit (Island) UK 1971
Palm tree label pressing of awesome 1969 LP. I bought my first copy of this when I was 16 & fifteen minutes later I managed to smash my glasses. Blind owl that I am I could barely find my way back home & in order to get back to town that same evening, where there was a gig by some band I can't recall, I had to locate a spare pair but the only thing I found was the ones I wore when I was 12. Thinking I looked like a total dork I made sure I had my face covered by a wall of hair, until a friend said 'Hey, you look like Ray Manzarek in those glasses", which made things a wee bit better. File under unremarkable tales from crypt.
Record: G; plays WAY better.

Swedish anti-nuclear power comp, with Bernt Staf, Tore Berger, Elektriska Linden, Turid, Roland Von Malmborg, Nynningen, Röde Mor, Thomas Wiehe, and Thomas Tidholm - all good stuff (and exclusive to this release, I think), but Tidholm's track is a MONSTER, sounding like the perfect mix of his folky solo stuff & the droning of Harvester (Abelli on bass, and Bo Anders wrote the last verse, so there's a connection in people as well as sound). Painting ofc by Jan Ternald from Älgarnas Trädgård; single sleeve version. (Also, this is record is more relevant now

than it has been for a long time, what, with Sweden moving away from neo-liberal hell into fascist hell, where nuclear power is considered a "green" energy. I'm going nuts here for a million different reasons, and this is one of them.)
Record: VG; a fair bit of innersleeve scuffing, but I doubt this has seen many plays.

Cover: very strong F; downgraded because of stain ofc, rest's pretty nice with some seam/spine/cornerwear; light rw; light bends/creases; a tiny bit of soiling. 9/12 inserts, missing photos (band & Woodstock) & Marquee poster.
Price: SEK 80 / $8

NEW! THE WILD ANGELS (Tower) USA 1966
Biker OST with most tracks by Davie Allan & The Arrows, plus one each by The Visitors featuring Barbara, and The Hands Of Time. "Blue's Theme" is totally classic exploito fuzz rock!
Record: looks F with plenty of light surflines & scuffing, but it plays VERY nicely all through.
Cover: G; mostly just minor overall wear, but top seam is split at middle for a little over 1", and beneath this, ofc, there's a thin 2" tear - not too visible, but still definitely there...

WIZARDS OF FIRETOP MOUNTAIN - same (Spliffen) Ireland 2015
12" five-tracker by stoney Irish hardrock outfit. Pretty cool black cover design (capturing this would be far beyond my photographic skills though) & label name/design is a funny-dumb take on Geffen.
Record: VG; some lines/scuffs, but very light ones only & most were probably there from the get-go, as is often the casewith new vinyl.
Cover: very strong VG+ with minimal general wear only; given the design I kinda doubt these would look any nicer even when brand-new. Orig black inner + insert & dl card.
Price: SEK 250 / $24


NEW! WOODY'S TRUCK STOP - same (Smash) USA 1969
PA band which once had Todd Rundgren in its line-up; "Everything Is Fine" is a melancholy treat, while "Color Scheme" is 6:23 of heavy, fuzzy bluesy psych, and the rest's  a decent mixed bag of pop, rock, psych.
Record: s1 VG, s2 G.
Cover: nice F; seam/spine/cornerwear; ring/shelfwear; top seam split 2" at spine + 3" at opening; bottom seam also split 3" at opening; minimal cornerbend; a tiny bit of wear f/b at opening, drillhole. One of those covers that's almost always worn.

NEW! ZAMLA MAMMAZ MANNA - Schlagerns Mystik / För Äldre Nybegynnare (Silence) Sweden 1978
Records: "För..." s1 G, s2 has a scratch that pops from the beginning of t1 for a little over a minute, then becomes more of a tick which is audible in quiet parts, disappears when louder. In all the scratch affects about 1/3 of the side, rest's G. "Schlagerns..." looks F, but with mostly light surfmarks only & s1 plays fine, with some background surfnoise, but overall much better than grade. S2 opens with some brief ticks/pops, but then this too is mostly playing a lot better than grade.
Cover: F; fo; the "För..." front is pretty nice - strong G with light rw, some faint soiling, and light general wear, but the front for "Schlagerns..." has some ugly bends & creases + small tears at front - hence the grade. No poster.
Price: SOLD
