About this copy: This copy of Golden Cups Album is an original 1968 Japanese release, pressed on “Everclean” red vinyl, and including the original obi.

The cover is M=, with trace wear at the corners.  The obi is M-, with no tears or rips, but with slight foxing on the backside.  The “hojyuhyo,” or re-order tag, is still attached.

The original envelope-style paper inner sleeve is included.

This LP has a gatefold cover with lyric information on the inside, so the LP was issued without an insert.

The red vinyl disc is M- and looks unplayed.

A beautiful copy of a terrific pop/rock/psych LP, and likely your final upgrade.

Background: The Golden Cups were one of the top bands in Japan in the late 1960s, and a couple of band members had previously spent some time in the United States, and they were heavily influenced by their time there.

Their debut LP, Golden Cups Album, is a mixture of vocal and instrumental tracks, and a mixture of originals and covers.  Their material ranged from pedestrian to “truly out there,” as their cover of “Hey Joe” will attest.

Tracks are:

  • Jezabel
  • A Whiter Shade of Pale
  • Got My Mojo Working
  • Unchained Melody
  • I’m Your Puppet
  • Hey Joe
  • Love is My Life
  • My Girl
  • I Feel Good (I Got You)
  • Searchin’ For My Love
  • LSD Blues
  • Do You Know I Love You
  • Hiwa-Mata-Noboru
