The original Shades of and TBOT


Wow, I'm quite happy right now.

I managed to get original US pressings of Shades of and TBOT, and did not pay much for them.
They're in quite good shape both, EX-/EX-.

They may not be very hard to get or very expensive, but I am happy to have them in my expanding collection.

And the alternative cover of Shades of is way better than the one in the English pressing.

 Well, I'm very happy for you, Niko! emoticon Of the MkI studio albums, I think the hardest one you'll have trouble acquiring will be the 3rd, "Deep Purple" - at least one with the magnificent gatefold sleeve. I know it was re-released by some other record company and/or licensees in a single album sleeve during the mid-to-late-70s or maybe the 80s sometime, but the original album sleeve was a gatefold.
 Also interesting what you say about the U.K. cersion of "SODP" 's cover. That's the one with the full size shot of the band, isn't it? Maybe it's from having the U.S. version since around mid-1969 or early 1970, but I always kinda liked the U.K. one. The grass always appears greener over your neighbor's septic tank, ay?
 This is posted presuming you don't have the 3rd album yet...and if you don't - mine's not for sale, sorry. emoticon

My gatefold Third album was picked up quite easily, and I've seen a few more here and there. Certainly didn't notice that it was any harder then the other ones to pick up!

 Was it? That's good to hear. Maybe it's just when I was paying closer attention to such matters earlier in life that it just seemed that I almost never saw the self titled 3rd album - with the original gatefold sleeve - around and available for sale. Must've been a pecularity in regards to my little part of the world then. emoticon

My only vinyl copy of the 3rd album is a crappy Russian pirate copy. emoticon
