Artist Tracks Label/No Country Condition Oberon A Midsummer's Night Dream 8 Tracks Inc Nottanum Town/Peggy/The Hunt/Syrinx/Summertime Etc Acorn/OBELPS1 UK VG+/VG+

This Is A Very Rare Find 1 of only 99 ever made this is a acid folk gem that rarely appears in any market brief history is it was recorded at Radley College Near Oxford by classrooms N1 and N2 on the day after the end of term,it took over 6 months for only 99 copies to be pressed and it was released to the band and a few friends at the end of term 1971. These private pressings are generally rubbish but not this one its a acid folk gem and for me stands above a lot of major releases from that era,for me its a must for any serious collection and rarely is offered for sale

Label:UK Acorn records limited private pressing with 1A and 1B machine stamped matrix numbers

The condition of this rare item I would normally have it at EX/EX but I am unable to play it so will grade it at VG+/VG+ Visually under the strong spot lights there are no major marks or scuffs maybe a few very light play marks which can hardly be seen, I believe all copy's of the record have a degree of crackle and this is due to the record being a private press 

The cover I have taken photo's front & back and there are a couple of dirty marks but again nothing major just marks from storage I have also taken photos of the labels.

This is what has been said about it more recently:

"It's not often that a really scarce album is very good but this is a real UK folk rock gem. Released in 1971 in an edition of only 99 copies, Oberon’s Midsummer’s Night Dream is not only one of the rarest folk-rock records to ever see the light in the UK but is also considered one of the top works in its genre.  Decorated with lilting vocals , inspired violin and flute playing, electric and acoustic guitars and other instruments old and new this is a magical album."
