THE TICKLE Subway (Smokey Pokey World)/Good evening: 45rpm 1967 UK Psych/Mod holy grail gem! Bowie/Visconti/Bolan

CATALOGUE: Regal Zonophone:  RZ3004<?xml:namespace prefix="o" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />


             B SIDE: 7X CAR6933-2

A HISTORIC COMPLETELY ORIGINAL COPY IN GREAT CONDITION (Please read on) -  AN ULTRA RARE BRIT-PSYCH SINGLE; their sole release; highly sought after in its own right as well as for its Bowie/Bolan connections via the producer on this record, Tony Visconti.

Regal Zonophone 1967 Psych classic  – The Tickle featured Mick Wayne, who was shortly to progress to Junior’s Eyes, then backing band to David Bowie prior to The Man Who Sold The World.

Their sole single from November ’67; a prime example of the ever collectible British Psychedelia; colourful, full of those experiments typical of this golden period, with phasing, backward tapes etc. 


NOT PLAY TESTED:  Studied under strong light with magnifying glass.  A USED, BUT NOT ABUSED COPY.  Vinyl still has the sheen of a rarely played copy.  The A Side has a few very light scuffs, some light spidering, but VG in Record Collector terms. The B Side is also good, but there is a light scratch visible, which I have attempted to capture in photos.  The whole package is complete & usable; I imagine playback will have that ‘characterful’ vinyl rumble. 

Labels have storage wear, good clean colours still & light spindle wear visible under magnifying glass.  Generic Regal Zonophone sleeve is Vg/Ex & features adverts for contemporary LPs by Procol Harum & The Move.  All as original & has been stored in vinyl protective sleeve, which it will also be sent in, housed in solid cardboard mailer.

 As original, this is a pressing on played vinyl & is very scarce.
This should be a fine usable copy:-   PLEASE SEE PHOTOS & CONDITION DESCRIPTION.
