Monday’s Top Three including The Mirror, Delaney & Bonnie & Bruce Springsteen

The-Mirror-Faster-Than-Light-600359THE MIRROR Faster Than Light (Rare 1968 South African single sided 33RPM mono metal based ultra high grade methyl cellulose lacquer acetate, one of only four tracks known to have been recorded by the Bath based band for a proposed EP that never happened. This was the B Side of their released single 'Gingerbread Man' in the UK, and a nice slice of psych it is, too. The acetate label is plain and hand typed with 18th August 1968 date, the Artist, title of the song, 'Flamingo Music' publishing information & matrix 'XBR-04463'. This copy still has the Philips 'Seven Single' die cut paper sleeve. Notoriously fragile, this copy has survived the last forty five years relatively unscathed and remains in beautiful condition with just a few very light surface scuffs to show for its forty five)


DELANEY & BONNIE Country Life (Ridiculously rare test pressing for Atco's intended 1972 US 12-track LP, scheduled for release under a 'SD33-383' catalogue number, this album was not just withdrawn but never reached the final production stage in this original form [only an 8-track cartridge tape was rushed into final production under this title]. This earliest version features the original mixes, the original running sequence & all eight minutes of TryA Little Harder, not included on D & B Together [Country Life was eventually released in a different form as D & B Together], & also stars Eric Clapton, Leon Russell, Duane Allman, Dave Mason, John Hartford, Billy Preston, Tina Turner & Steve Cropper. Please see 'more info' for full details of this one-off, unique rarity… SD33-383)


BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN Tenth Avenue Freeze Out (Legendary original 1975 Japanese wide centred 7" vinyl single on the CBS Sony orange label, backed with She's The One. The vinyl is near mint, complete with original company inner bag & unique pictureinsert with Japanese text on the back – the rarest of his Japanese single pressings by far & in near mint condition SOPB350)
