|Additional info||Scarce original 1972 US Warner Bros label 10-track vinyl LP - the seconds album by eminent, eclectic Santa Monica based multi-instrumentalist ranked number eight on David Fricke's list of "The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" for Rolling Stones Magazine, 2003.|
Vinyl is manufactured with the brown steamship label with boxed orange ':r' logo at top and without Warner Distribution logo rimprint at 4 o'clock - stressing that this is the original issue.
The fact that "How Can You Keep On Moving" is labelled a 'traditional' stresses that this is a 1st pressing - the track has Agnes "Sis" Cunningham writing credits on subsequent issues.
Vinyl comes complete with illustrated lyric insert - housed in a generic era specific company inner sleeve - ultimately in a slightly linen-like texturing, inner pasted gatefold picture cover.
Condition: VG++ (Vinyl and Labels)/VG (Inner Sleeve)/VG+(+) (Cover):
Vinyl is bright and shiny - hardly any signs of play or handling - a touch of sleeve wear only - next to nothing and easily graded near mint.
Insert has extensive wrinkling and a regular bend - a couple of side holes... a tape tear on the entirely white back - perfectly readable though - graded straight VG.
Cover is extremely nice - perfect apart from a rubberstamped name in the uppermost top area of the left panel in the inner spread, a very marginal lower opening corner dent and hardly any edge rubbing - graded close to near mint/excellent - a simply very nice copy.
