Wonderwall Music George Harrison - APCOR 1 mono

£100.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

This is the original mono issue of 'Wonderwall Music', released on 1 November 1968. The songs are all instrumental pieces, except for occasional non-English vocals, and mostly comprise short musical vignettes. Following his Indian-styled compositions for the Beatles since 1966, he used the film score project to further promote Indian classical music by introducing rock audiences to instruments that were relatively little-known in the West – including shehnai, sarod, tar shehnai and santoor. The Indian pieces are contrasted by Western musical selections, in the psychedelic rock, experimental, country and ragtime styles. While viewed as a curiosity by some rock music critics, 'Wonderwall Music' is recognised for its inventiveness in fusing Western and Eastern sounds, and as being a precursor to the 1980s world music trend.

The full colour laminated covers are in excellent condition, with only some minor creasing found on the front and some very light scuffing along the spine. The sheet insert is also in excellent condition, some grey marks visible on the white side of the sheet. Side 1 of the vinyl is in excellent condition, with no marks or scratches. Side 2 has some significant cross-track scratching, though it seems to be superficial and playback quality is not affected (it has been tested). The vinyl is in a white inner sleeve.
An intriguing item for fans or collectors which will be sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery.
