Larry Lurex I Can Hear Music - Mis-spelt Label German 7" vinyl single (7 inch record)
Tracklisting / Additional Info: BACKGROUND

Recorded around the same time as the first Queen album, this single was recorded as much to test the studio as anything, in an attempt by the studio engineer to emulate Phil Spector's trademark sound. The sound engineer had heard Freddie singing before, and was suitably impressed, and so asked if Freddie wanted to be involved. Soon Brian and Roger were also dragged along, and the result was 'I Can Hear Music'. The sound technicians were so pleased with it that it ended up as a single. Not released however until 1973, just three weeks before the first 'proper' Queen recordings were due for release. To prevent any confusion, it was decided not to use the name 'Queen' for 'I Can Hear Music' as well, so the tongue-in-cheek 'Larry Lurex' (a pun on 'Gary Glitter') was adopted. The public failed to get the joke however, and the single sank without trace.

This German pressing was the only issue to feature a picture sleeve, manufactured with a high sheen and fragile paper sleeve. This is the first pressing which was manufactured with an error on the label saying "I Can Her Music". This was corrected in the second pressing


As previously indicated the sleeve on this incredibly rare German issue is manufactured using high sheen and very fragile paper and as such is always usually found in less than mint condition and this copy is no different.
The front sleeve shows signs of ring wear and creasing and due to vinyl shift a small 1" cut through the bottom of sleeve is evident, although clearly with defects [which is reflected in the selling price], it is still a perfectly acceptable sleeve and quite likely one of the few opportunities collectors will have to purchase at under 450.
