Dick’s Picks: A rare progressive folk gem from Tea & Symphony

An Asylum For The Musically Insane is a rare 1969 UK 9-track LP of ‘Progressive Folk’ by the talented trio, by Tea & Symphony. Although they traditionally worked as a three piece, they were often joined by other musicians in the studio to round out their sound. On this particularly album they were joined by Clem Clempson, who is notable for his work with Colosseum and Humble Pie.

The Harvest labels have ‘Gramophone Co’ label perimeter text & without EMI logo, and the album comes in a wonderful front laminated gatefold picture sleeve.

The sleeve on this copy shows just a little shelfwear along the top edge and two tiny areas of paper loss along the spine [these are barely visible], otherwise the laminate is crisp and the colours bright and vivid. The vinyl is stunning and looks barely played, there are some faint, whispy hairlines if held under strong light but nothing that affects play, there is no spindle wear or any other unsightly marks/scuffs to the disc and it easily grades Excellent – A wonderful copy of this very hard to find album
