Description

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.

Allmusic.com gave Bottle of Wine a 3 star review:

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.
