Gentle-Giant-Octopus-131301GENTLE GIANT Octopus

Rare 1972 UK Vertigo 'spiral' label 8-track vinyl LP, Roger Dean designed gatefold sleeve complete with die-cut 'swirl' inner. If you're looking for the ultimate vinyl copy of Octopus then look no further. This sleeve is practically mint with no wear to speak of. The vinyl is clean and looks like it may have only ever seen a turntable once or twice. A beautiful condition eample of this progressive masterpiece!

 

Pink-Floyd-Atom-Heart-Mother-66543PINK FLOYD Atom Heart Mother

1970 UK first pressing 5-track stereo vinyl LP. The label has the 'Gramophone Co. Ltd' credit & is without an EMI box logo, featuring first issue -1G matrices in the run-out grooves, gatefold picture sleeve. Uniquely, this first pressing is also the only issue to contain the 'looped' dripping tap audio at the end of Morning Glory.

 

Amon-Duul-Yeti-315940AMON DUUL II Yeti

Rare 1970 first UK issue 10-track double vinyl LP – not only one of the Top 5 Krautrock records of all time but housed in one of the most striking sleeve designs (in a genre full of striking sleeve designs). Opens with the sprawling 12-minute 'Soap Shop Rock' medley that really knocks you for six! The textured gatefold cover shows only the lightest signs of edge wear & is otherwise in excellent condition. Both vinyl discs are clean & look barely played, despite a small light scratch just at the start of 'Return Of Ruebezahl', the album otherwise plays through beautifully. Don't miss!
