|Additional info||Scarce original 1969 US Pressed Epic label 10-track LP - influential San Francisco debut LP - '...encompassing styles from proto-'70s punk (want to bet the Ramones wore out copies of this album?) to '50s New Orleans R&B, country music, and even ragtime'... Allmusics Bruce Eder wrote in his review: "... the whole album achieves a kind of otherworldly continuum, like something out of a strange and wonderful corner of the universe that - though none knew it at the time - pointed the way to a coming decade of achievement by the likes of the Ramones, Jonathan Richman..." |

Side 1: P o XSB 150672-1C, mother/stamper A2

Vinyl is bright and shiny - hardly any sleeve inflicted wear... a very minor couple of pressure marks before the music starts on Side 1 - easily graded near mint in itself.
Labels have a single or two slightly complex spindletraces - light and superficial though - graded near mint as well.
Vinyl is overall graded near mint.
Cover has very slight rubbing against top and bottom vinyl outline on front - against top and bottom edges on back.
Top seam is almost without wear - spine completely clean, tight and easily readable - bottom seam has very light wear except that it is worn through 1 cm towards opening. Opening edges are wear-free.
Corners has overall just a touch to a little rubbing and just faint denting to top corners. This is a simply very nice cover with a series of marginal imperfection - graded close to near mint/excellent.
