    Description

    Arcadium Breathe Awhile Stereo LP (UK - Middle Earth MDLS 302, 1969). Here is a first pressing of this incredibly rare, highly sought UK Psychedelic Rock masterpiece. With slow builds, bluesy guitar licks, wailing organ and lengthy compositions that easily keep the listener's attention, Breathe Awhile is considered by many Psych fans to be the epitome of underground Psychedelia, and has sold regularly elsewhere for prices ranging from 1800 to 2500 dollars! Includes vintage British inner sleeve. Condition: NM 8 (sleeve - exhibits some creasing and pressing bubbles)/NM 8 (disc - minor hairline marks/imperfections present). From the Original BeatHaven Archive.

    More Information:

    Opening in the mid-1980s in San Diego and shutting its doors in the 1990s, the original BeatHaven Records specialized in rare Beat, Garage, Psychedelic, and Progressive Rock records from the 1960's and 1970's from around the world. Their collection included especially rare treasures that would have been tough - if not nearly impossible - to find elsewhere. Heavily involved with mail order, BeatHaven sold to a network of collectors the world over and helped standardize the prices realized by extremely obscure records today. With such worldwide correspondence, BeatHaven didn't merely bring collectors rare pressings of established acts from the United States and the UK, but uncovered hordes of rarities found all across the globe. They served to educate people that the music scenes found in the US and UK existed all over the world. Through their international research and outreach they helped discover numerous bands whose existence were virtually unknown outside their own countries at the time by even the most knowledgeable collectors of the day. From Peruvian Psych Rock, to South African Prog and beyond, BeatHaven had it all! Here is Part Two of the Original BeatHaven Archive, offered for auction for the very first time anywhere.
