Offered for sale is a sealed stereo copy of the 1967 LP The Hour Glass, featuring Duane and Gregg Allman.
About this copy: This copy of The Hour Glass is an original, still sealed stereo pressing of the 1967 LP on the Liberty Records label. As the record is still sealed, the record is presumably mint and unplayed.
This copy is in exceptionally nice condition, with no cut corner, saw mark, punch hole or any other cutout mark. The wrap is fully intact except for a small (1/2″ or so) piece of the wrap that’s missing from the center of the cover on the front.
A beautiful copy of a record that has become quite hard to find. Pretty good album, too.
Background: The first album by The Hour Glass is a mixed bag; it features the talents of Duane and Gregg Allman as well as three other members who went on to work as session musicians at the famed Muscle Shoals studio in Alabama. That would seem to insure greatness, but while they were all talented musicians, their record label, Liberty Records, didn’t really know what to do with them.
The label rejected all of the group’s self-written material and had them record material from songwriters the label had under contract instead. It’s not a bad album, and is actually a pretty good example of soul-infused, late 1960s pop, but it’s an album that doesn’t sound a whole lot like the Allman Brothers Band.
Here’s a track from the album, “Cast Off All My Fears,” written by Jackson Browne (who wasn’t famous yet, either):
