Fresh Blueberry Pancake "Heavy" Record RARE Only 54 Printed Played Once. Condition is Used. Shipped with USPS Media Mail.
This is one of only 54 albums printed by Fresh Blueberry Pancake from Pittsburgh PA in 1970.
I am the cousin of John Behrens, one of the founding members of the band. I lived with John during the years that the band was active, and had the pleasure of hearing them practice every week where we lived.
...John gave this album to me, and as I did with all new albums I meticulously cleaned it with a Zerostat and Shure cleaning system, and the then recorded it to tape. Then I placed both the album and the cover in protective sleeves and did not play them again. This is one of those albums. So it was only played once and then stored carefully.
Included with the album is one of the business cards that the band used. I have also included some photos that I had in another of the albums that I own. These were promotional photos for the band. The photos are only shown to corroborate the story of my growing up with John. The photos DO NOT go with the album in any way, and are only shown for reference.
From the Discogs site, here is some information about the album and band:
A Power-Trio from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, USA, founded in 1968, by comprising singer/bassist Tony Impavido, guitarist John Behrens (2), and drummer Geoff Rydell. The Band recorded multi-pal demo tapes through the late 60's, and very early 70's, and in 1970, they released their only album, Heavy. Only 54 original copies were ever pressed, and they are considerably rare and hard to find, especially among collectors and fans. The band disbanded in 1972.
This is a rare find album. Please research as needed.
Update To Shipping - International Shipping Added
After numerous offers and inquiries from countries other than the United States, I have added international shipping to this item using eBay's Global Shipping Program. I carefully ship all of my albums using customized mailers, bubble wrap, and cardboard inserts.
Because of the value of this item, it will be shipped in a much larger box that will be heavily padded with multiple layers of protection. I do not want to take any chances on this shipping. The same heavy duty container and padding will also be used for shipping inside of the United States, and I have changed that to FREE Shipping.
Thank you for the inquiries.
