Additional infoScarce 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.
