Offered for sale is a sealed stereo pressing of the 1967 LP Of Cabbages and Kings by Chad & Jeremy, complete with promotional timing strip on the cover.
About this copy: This copy of Of Cabbages and Kings is an original 1967 stereo pressing of the LP. While the shrink wrap has been removed from the cover, the disc is still sealed in the original polyethylene inner sleeve. The record is presumably new and unplayed.
The cover is in VG+ condition, with slight ring wear and a bit of wear at the corners. While the record has stock Columbia labels, the cover has a timing strip on the front which indicates that it was sent to a radio station for potential airplay. As the record is still sealed, the station obviously didn’t play it.
A nice copy of a terrific late 1960s pop/psych LP.
Background: Chad & Jeremy were a pop/rock/folk duo from England who had moderate success in the 1960s, putting seven songs in the American Top 40 Their songs tended to the light side, with breezy tunes such as “Yesterday’s Gone,” and “Summer Song.”
By 1967, they, like everyone else, decided to create more meaningful work, and Of Cabbages and Kings was the first of two slightly psychedelic concept albums that they released in the late 1960s.
While both albums (the other was The Ark), received good press, they didn’t sell particularly well and the duo released their final album in 1969.
That said, Of Cabbages and Kings is a terrific record, and a surprisingly hard one to find.
