Offered for sale is an original Japanese white label promotional copy of Watt by Ten Years After, featuring a black and white cover that was used only for promotional copies.
Note: Copies sold in stores had color gatefold covers. Promotional copies had black and white non-gatefold covers, as the final cover art was likely not yet available.
About this copy: This copy of Watt is a 1970 Japanese pressing on the Deram label.
The promo-only black and white cover is VG+ with slight foxing on the back.
This version of the album was issued without an obi or a lyric insert.
The white label promo disc is M- with a couple of spindle marks on the labels, but no marks on the vinyl. Clean disc!
A nice copy of a rare (and pretty good) Ten Years After LP.
Background: Released in 1970, Watt was the fifth album by Ten Years After, and their last album for Deram Records.
The album reached #5 on the UK album chart and #21 on the U.S. chart.
Watt had many of the same ingredients as its predecessor, Cricklewood Green, but wasn’t nearly as well thought out. The band had obviously spent much time on the road, leaving little time for developing new material. … Nonetheless, (Alvin Lee’s) guitar work is fast and clean (though the licks are beginning to sound repetitive from album to album), and the band continues to cook in the manner exemplified best on Cricklewood Green.
