Breathe Awhile (Middle Earth MDLS 302) 1969
No need for hype here, folks – but here I go anyway. This is one of the rarest and best true British underground LPs of the 1960s, with awesome guitar and organ leads all over the place, and a dark, creepy vibe. The good news about this copy is that it barely suffers from the notorious hissing and crackling that most copies have.
The fully-laminated sleeve is in VG+ to EX condition. The colours are still bright, the spine is clear and fully legible, and there are no rips, splits or writing, just some minor age wear.
The glossy disc is in lovely EX shape. It plays with a minimum of surface noise. There's about 30 seconds at the start of side one (which all copies have), but it stops thereafter. It's only let down only by a small mark at the start of side two, which clicks at the very start of the song (the music slowly fades up and the click has stopped before it gets going). This is the best copy I have ever seen, and you would do very well to find a better one.
The above description is honest and accurate. Please note that this is GUARANTEED not to be a bootleg or counterfeit. It is in every respect ORIGINAL.
