    What does this generally go for?

    That would seem a reasonable price (unless you're Matt and find it for 50p at a booter in Southampton) although I'm sure you could get lucky for less if you bided a little time. As I understand, all those tracks, and some better ones, are on 'Music For A Young Generation' (Lee?).
    You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

      Good price for that condition. Used to be quite expensive (£80 ish) a few years back. Its not a stone cold classic lp. Some nice tracks.

          Yes - pretty much - although you don&#39;t get the covers, some of which I really like especially &quot;My Babe&quot; and it also doesn&#39;t have the funky sitar track. the KPM is basically the basis of both the Ugly Custard and the Hungry Wolf lps (which share a couple of tracks anyway - if you see what I mean). The KPM can be had for around £40 to £50. I think I paid £30 for my Ugly Custard but I did pick up one for the the Viscount which was around £20 about a year ago.

          I&#39;d like the Blue Phantom lp on Kaliedoscope meself......

            I got mine for 50p in Save The Children in Nottingham. I reckon it&#39;s a damn fine LP - especially the sitar type stuff.

            Not a classic agreed, but well worth having. Books at £50 I believe and as the orange fella would say &quot;I think that&#39;s about its money&quot;.

            Not all the tracks are on Music For A Young Generation, some are and even then, they&#39;re &#39;versions&#39; rather than the identical recordings (unless I&#39;m playing them at the wrong speed&#33.

              I think there is a reissue of this floating around, don&#39;t think its legit though. does the Blue Phantom lp go for the same money? never seen one of those.

                The few copies I&#39;ve seen have been at around the £100 mark but Serm&#39;s will know for sure - I think he&#39;s got the library that that one came from too - Sermad?

                  There is. It&#39;s been reissued on mainland Europe somewhere. If you Google about you can find copies no problem.

                    yeah. the original Blue Phantom came from an album called &#39;distortions pop&#39; on Sonimage. Now im sure I traded off my og Blue Phantom and get the library one. Shame as I think the Blue Phantom cover is genius. Bout fifty squid if you ask me (probably less on the bay).

                    Really strange label kaleidoscope. Only two releases and both library-esque. Very odd&#33;

                      Are there any details of the Kaleidoscope label on the sleeve, like an address or anything? I&#39;ve heard they were connected with Turnover and possibly Polymax, who were based in Edgeware Road in Middlesex, I&#39;d like to know if that&#39;s true.

                        the back of the Blue Phantom lp has the Turnover address - 107 High Road, Edgeware, Middlesex. The music &#39;could well be described as an audio experience&#39;

                            He plays on the track &#39;Custard&#39;s Last Stand&#39; (and maybe a few others uncredited). I think he also gets a writing credit too.

                            Roger Coulam is the man credited with playing keyboards on other tracks.

                            Re: Blue Phantom, I&#39;m pretty sure that Spin City in Sheffield still has a copy in at £50. Every time I&#39;ve been in there for the last year or so, it&#39;s been on the wall (and Andy still hasn&#39;t seen the light and dropped the price&#33.

                            I&#39;m sure the seven hills connection could confirm whether it&#39;s still there or not.

                              If you have both the &#39;Ugly Custard&#39; and &#39;Hungry Wolf&#39; lps then I suggest you check the credits for the tracks. Can&#39;t quite remember the details but certainly Hawkshaw and Coulam are credited as keyboards on the same track on different lps.
