Test Pressing - The Vejtables and the Young Lyons - Golden State 1964
This is one that I hate to let go - I will never replace it. I am guessing this was pressed with the idea of both of these groups making an album at some point. The Vejtables were a much better garage psychedelic band than generally considered. I was impressed when I heard the five songs on this pressing. Some excellent fuzz guitar and a good range of songs makes this a fascinating listen. It includes Shadows, Feel the Music, Hide Yourself, Good Things Are Happening, and Time and Place. The opposite side is a group, The Young Lyons, that reminds me of west coast folk or sunshine psych that has a lot of the best elements of the Mamas and the Papas and includes Catch the Wind, The Rain Follows Me, Out of Sight Out of Mind, andAll My Troubles Fall Like Rain. This was pressed by Golden State Recorders. I have cleaned it several times using my VPI but it was pretty dirty when I found it. I would grade this as VG over all with some light to moderate scratches/scuffs - the Vejtables side plays with some crackle and a few tics at the very beginning of the first cut from a couple of scratches mostly in the dead wax. Overall I would say it plays a little better than it looks. The Young Lyons side plays overall with a bit more crackle but that may be because it is a quieter side and there was one quick jump on the third cut but it may be just dirt or debris. This could use a little additional cleaning by someone that really knows how to clean test pressings. No reserve!!!! All grading is guaranteed to visual Goldmine standards (see my feedback) unless otherwise specifically described. Price includes delivery confirmation and/or insurance(78s) domestic. Priority mail and professional packaging is $8.00, additional LPs are $1.00 domestic. I ship once a week, usually on Tuesdays, every item paid for by end of the day Sunday. Important - media mail may take up to two weeks for delivery!!! Insurance is included on purchases of $50.00 or more. Sorry about the increase in international mail but the post office now charges me an average of $16.50 for one single LP - that does not consider the cost of the mailer, bubble wrap, and labels. Insurance and/or tracking for international sales is available at a much greater shipping cost (required for Portugal). The only way I can absolutely guarantee delivery internationally is with a tracking number or insurance. Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer’s responsibility. Please check with your country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying. International shipping via first class can take a month or more from the shipping date - we have no control over shipping time. Please do not ask us to lie about record values on customs forms. I have some great jazz for sale but it won't last long - bid like lightening. Check my auctions or I will hold my breath until I turn Blue Note.
