Tuesday’s Top Three Including Black Sabbath, The Amazing Blondel, Anne Briggs

Black-Sabbath-Master-Of-Reality-63517BLACK SABBATH Master Of Reality (Rare 1971 UK first issue 'swirl' label 8-track LP with unusual reversed white on black label, matching reverse 'swirl' inner, featuring the classics Sweet Leaf, Children Of The Grave and Into The Void, fully laminated & embossed box sleeve with lyrics on reverse. 
We tend to find these covers in less than desirable condition, however this example remains in superb shape with just a little laminate lift at the edges. The vinyl too remains in excellent condition with little sign of play & just a couple of light surface scuffs to show for its forty years – A gem!)


THE AMAZING BLONDEL The Amazing Blondel & A Few Faces (Ultra rare 1970 UK first issue 10-track stereo LP with 'Gramophone Co' Bell labels, superb fully laminated picture sleeve. This copy is in Amazing [Blondel] condition! SBLL131) 
See 'More Info' for condition details …


ANNE BRIGGS The Time Has Come (Very rare 1971 UK 13-track stereo LP, picture sleeve. Finally persuaded into a recording studio by a major label, this is probably her most well known album. With sleeve notes provided by Anne herself, this albumalso includes a rare songwriting collaboration by Bert Jansch and even mentions the tunings used on the pieces. For the Anne Briggs fan, this must be Christmas Time as this album is in wonderful condition. The sleeve shows only a little lightshelfwear and a little scuffing to the corners and the vinyl remains near 'as new'. The only real clue to the fact this album is actually second hand and not new is the addition of a small period record store sticker on the label that simply adds to the charm. I won't bore you with any more of this, suffice to say that if you have been looking for decades for a superior copy of this very rare and very beautiful album, you've just found it)
