Curved Air – Air Conditioning original 1971 UK picture disc LP with cover

An original pressing of the 1970 debut LP by Curved Air, Air Conditioning, in picture disc form and including a cover.


Offered for sale is a rare picture disc edition of the 1970 debut LP by British progressive rock band Curved Air, Air Conditioning, complete with cover.

Curved Air isn’t all that well remembered today, but during their time together they made some pretty good progressive rock. They are best remembered today for their unique contribution to record collecting – the first pressings of their 1970 debut, Air Conditioning, were pressed as picture discs, and this was the first long-play record to be issued in that format.  Due to quality control issues, the pressings were limited to 10,000 copies, and subsequent pressings were pressed on regular black vinyl.

The copy offered for sale is one of those picture discs, and it’s one of the most attractive picture discs ever made.  Most copies were sold in clear plastic sleeves; this one includes an original cover.  The record would be M- except for a small scratch through a couple of tracks.  The cover is VG+, with minor wear at the corners and a bit of yellowing.

A nice copy of a beautiful record.
