Druid-Fluid-Druid-541471 DRUID Fluid Druid

Scarce Original 1976 UK EMI tan label 9-track vinyl LP, the second and final album by the British symphonic prog-rock quartet, delivering a distinctly 'Yes' inspired sound with Anderson-esque vocals and Squier-like bass but with their own layered mellotron style. This copy comes with its original shaped-corner illustrated lyric inner card sleeve. Picture/title sleeve showing some discolouration and ringwear, understandable due to its mainly white sleeve and 35 years of age with no tears, rips or writing in sight. The vinyl within looking barely played, remaining in near 'as new' condition making for a great example and superb play copy of a hard to find prog-rock gem!
