Offered for sale is a still sealed U.S. stereo copy of Bottle of Wine by the Fireballs.
About this copy: This copy of Bottle of Wine is a sealed U.S. stereo pressing on the Atco label. As the album is sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The wrap is intact except for a small break at the lower left-hand corner and a large are about 3 inches square at the upper right where a price tag was probably removed.
There is a punch hole in the lower right hand corner of the LP.
A nice copy of an LP that rarely turns up sealed.
Background: Released in 1968, Bottle of Wine was the eleventh album from Raton, New Mexico’s Fireballs, and the title track, which reached #9 on the U.S. singles charts, was their first Top 40 hit in four years.
By the late 1960s, the Fireballs were trying to update their sound into the AM radio mainstream, as evidenced by the presence of beefy horns and full Grass Roots-type production on several tracks. Despite the presence of the hit “Bottle of Wine,” it wasn’t convincing, largely because the material was so run-of-the-mill.
