CONFUSION 1st LP 1966 UNKNOWN PRIVATE PRESSING AWESOME PSYCH BLUES
On offer here is a VERY rare LP (especially in this condition!!!!) by Confusion called "Confusion" and is an ORIGINAL 1966 UK MONO 1st Pressing (Private Pressing!)!!!! THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!! THIS IS ONE OF THE RAREST LPs ON THE VERY SOUGHT AFTER DEROY LABEL - AND VIRTUALLY NEVER TURNS UP FOR SALE!!!! JUST TRY AND FIND ANOTHER ONE!!!! BACK IN 1966 WHEN THIS LP WAS MADE - IT WAS ONLY EVER PRIVATELY PRESSED IN ABSOLUTELY TINY AMOUNTS (MOST LIKELY LESS THAN 50 COPIES!), AND THEN DELETED FOREVER!!!! AS A RESULT IT IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND INCREDIBLY HARD TO LOCATE TODAY!!!! AND THE MUSIC ON THIS LP IS SIMPLY SUPERB (A RARITY ON PRIVATE PRESSINGS!)!!!! ITS CLEARLY PRIVATELY PRESSED AND A ROUGH LIVE RECORDING WHICH CLEARLY THE BAND MUST HAVE GOT MADE!!!! IT IS INDEED HEAVY ROCK/PSYCH MUSIC - WITH SOME GREAT GUITAR SOLOS!!!! CONFUSINGLY (THOUGH HE OBVIOUSLY ISNT PLAYING ON THIS LP!) THERE ARE REFERENCES MADE ON THE LP TO ERIC CLAPTON BY THE BAND, AND THERE ARE 2 OR 3 CREAM COVERS, AS WELL AS A FEW OTHER TRACKS I CANNOT IDENTIFY!!!! IT IS CLEARLY MID TO LATE 1960s MUSIC THOUGH, WITH HEAVY GUITAR & DRUMS!!!! HOWEVER, THIS IS AS FAR AS MY KNOWLEDGE TAKES ME. THIS LP WAS FOUND IN A LONDON ARCHIVE - ORIGINALLY IN THE APRIL MUSIC ARCHIVE AND LATER ON IN ANOTHER LARGER ARCHIVE WHEN APRIL MUSIC CLOSED DOWN. IT HAS APRIL MUSIC STAMPED ON ONE SIDE OF THE COVER, AND AN 'APRIL MUSIC' STICKER ON THE OTHER. THERE IS ALSO A 'NEWS SOUND PRODUCTION' STICKER ON EACH SIDE OF THE COVER - WHICH I WOULD SAY DATES FROM THE LPs MANUFACTURE. THERE IS ALSO A SCRAWLED NAME + A 'HEART' STICKER WITH 11/66 WRITTEN ON IT. 'CONFUSION CJG LP 1' IS WRITTEN TWICE ON THE COVER - THOUGH CLEARLY IN DIFFERENT TIME PERIODS THROUGHOUT ARCHIVE STORAGE. ON THE LABEL IS A STICKER WITH 'JOHN HASSELL RECORDINGS' WHICH IS CLEARLY FROM THE TIME OF THE LPs MANUFACTURE (PROBABLY THE PERSON WHO ARRANGED THE RECORDING). THE ANNOTATIONS ON THE LABEL, COULD BE FROM THE TIME THE LP WAS MADE, OR INDEED A LITTLE LATER AT THE ARCHIVE. MOST INTERESTINGLY THE LABEL TYPE (TEXTURED + TWO RIDGES), AND THE DEEP STAMPED MATRIXES - MATCH EXACTLY ISLAND RECORDS FROM THIS PERIOD IN 1966. MOST OF ISLANDS 'SUE' LABEL OUTPUT & THEIR MID 1960s WHITE ISLAND LABELLED LPs WAS MADE IN THE SAME PLACE THAT THIS RECORD WAS MADE. MACHINE STAMPED ON EACH SIDE IS 'CJG 1 LP A' & CJG 1 LP B' - EXACTLY IN THE SAME STYLE AS ISLAND & SUE PRESSINGS FROM THE SAME PERIOD IN 1966. SO ALTHOUGH THE 11/66 DATE ON THE COVER WAS PROBABLY ADDED LATER AT SOME POINT IN THE ARCHIVE - THIS LP MUST DATE BETWEEN 1965 AND EARLY 1967. THEREFORE THE 11/66 DATE IS PROBABLY CORRECT. A VERY VERY INTERESTING PRIVATE PRESSING INDEED!!!! SOME EXCELLENT MUSIC AND ALMOST CERTAINLY UNIQUE!!!!

PLEASE NOTE - Private feedback bidders must consult me first prior to bidding - due to previous problems regarding non-payment, and non-receipt. MY POSTAGE UNDERCHARGE GUARANTEE TO ALL BUYERS (I always undercharge on postage!):- Due to UK Royal Mail's obscene price increases this year - I have had no choice but to increase postage charges a little. Until this year - I had kept them exactly the same since I joined ebay back in 2002. However this years price increases have been so obscene, that I have had no choice but to increase my postage charges for the first time ever. However PLEASE NOTE - my absolute 100% guarantee to you as a buyer - is that I will ALWAYS undercharge postage on everything I send out. Even after the increases, I am still charging you the buyer LESS than I am being charged myself. On each package I send out - the price is clearly stated on the front of the package (please check it when you recieve it!). I also do NOT charge for packaging costs - ONLY for postal costs! And should you find that I have overcharged you postage in ANY way - I will refund DOUBLE the difference. THAT IS MY 100% POSTAL GUARANTEE FOR EACH AND EVERY BUYER! No buyer EVER deserves to be overcharged on postage - and on my listings, I'll make sure they are ALWAYS undercharged. Any questions - please ask!
