About this copy: This copy of The Parable of Arable Land is a sealed 1967 mono pressing.

As the album is sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.

The wrap is fully intact with no rips, tears or holes.  There are a couple of very tiny corner dents, but otherwise, this is as close to a perfect copy as you’re likely to find.

A beautiful copy of a rare LP that seldom turns up in any condition in mono.

Background: The Parable of Arable Land was the first LP by the Red Krayola and only the second album issued by the collectible International Artists label.

The album, like nearly everything on the label, did not make the U.S. album charts. gave The Parable of Arable Land a 4 star review:

The group’s 1967 debut album, The Parable of Arable Land, actually documents the work of two different groups; the Red Crayola themselves conjure up a sound that’s part psychedelia, part garage punk, and partly some sort of experimental rock that would not truly make itself known until many years down the road, and they generate an impressively freaked-out energy on deliberately primitive numbers like “War Sucks” and “Hurricane Fighter Plane.” Six of the 12 tracks on The Parable of Arable Land are devoted to the Red Crayola; the rest find the three members of the group collaborating with 45 friends, acquaintances, and fellow travelers credited as “the Familiar Ugly.” … While the truly bent Texas psychedelic scene of the 1960s provided a context in which the Red Crayola could thrive, The Parable of Arable Land exists on a plane all its own; if art-damaged noise rock began anywhere, it was on this album.
