Captain Beefheart & Magic Band Trout Mask Replica - 1st -VG UK 2-LP vinyl record set (Double LP Album)
|Tracklisting / Additional Info:
This legendary album is far from 'easy listening' but is none the less an essential 'must have' in any collection. Mr Van Vliet & his astonishing band took the conventional ideas about music & composition & turned them completely on their heads to create an album which still, to this day, stands as one of the benchmark recordings in history.
This copy has the ORIGINAL Straight catalogue numbers on both sleeve & labels [STS1053], meaning that it was the first release in 1969 before changing to the more common Reprise pressing.
Unlike the US pressing, the sides are labelled [& play] in order, rather than the 1/4, 2/3 arrangement on the US vinyl.

The gatefold picture sleeve shows a little age with some noticable ringwear and edge scuffing but with no rips or tears present and the colours are still bright and sharp.
The vinyl remains in 'Very Good' condition with minimal paper scuffs and hairlines which don't affect playback so all in all a fine example for it's vintage.The first UK release didn't sell too well at the time, so finding one at all is an achievement .
You either love or hate Trout Mask, there is no inbetween. This is a highly recommended UK original for those that do!
