Offered for sale is an original US white label promotional copy of the 1971 LP And I Turned as I Had Turned as a Boy by UK folk-rock group Dulcimer.

About this copy: The copy offered for sale is an original US white label promotional copy, shipped to radio stations to promote the album.  The cover is VG+, with some wear at the edges and corners, and the beginnings of a small split at the bottom of the jacket.  The record is VG++, with no marks, aside from some scuffs from being removed from the heavy paper inner sleeve.  There are a few spindle marks on each label.

A nice copy of a hard to find album in the folk rock genre.

Background: AllMusic.com describes Dulcimer as a mashup between Amazing Blondel and Jethro Tull, and gives And I Turned as I Had Turned as a Boy four stars:

The debut album by this English progressive/folk trio has aged extremely well. The songs, although not strikingly original, offer an eerie mix of traditional- and fantasy-based (and even science fiction-inspired) lyrics that are rather striking to hear in the 21st century. And much of the music successfully melds archaic and progressive influences within an acoustic instrument framework, reminiscent in some respects of the bolder work of Amazing Blondel, but with a greater emphasis on lyricism.  The simple beauty of the music is almost overwhelmed at times by too-elaborate production, though the presence of actor Richard Todd as narrator on “Sonnet to the Fall” and “Caravan” isn’t nearly as jarring today as it seemed in the early ’70s. He sounds too much like Richard Burton, but “Caravan,” the track on which he is most prominent, holds together well as a piece of faux-medieval folk-rock.
