Rarity Scale – Very Rare
One of the very best acts on the legendary Vertigo Swirl album! This is a 1st German Vertigo pressing.
The record of this copy is in EX+ condition. Both sides play lovely without any issues. There is some crackle at the very beginning of both sides (pressing). Also the labels are amazing without spindle traces.
The sleeve is EX-. It has some aging at the edges and corners. The bottom of the sleeve is a tiny bit worn. On front there is a minor sticker damage at the top right. Not to serious if you ask us. The back of the unlaminated gatefold is lovely. There is a bit of ring wear at the bottom. The spine is intact and fully readable. The opening is OK but maybe a tiny bit rough.
The inside of the gatefold is a bit aged at the edges and have some tiny stains. But further the inside is amazing.
This copy comes with it’s correct date coded German inner sleeve. So no Swirl inner sleeve because it’s a German pressing.+ More information

A large selection of rare vinyl records from the golden era.
Cressida is in our opinion one of the best bands on the Vertigo label. The UK prog band started in 1969 and released their outstanding debut album also on Vertigo (VO7). Asylum was their second and final album during the Golden Era. It was released in famous Vertigo 6360 series on number 25 (6360 025).
The music is very progressive with outstanding arranged tracks and great musicianship. The band had their typical own sound with shorter progressive songs. That was unique during the period.
The beautiful artistic cover was done by the master “Marcus Keef” who did a lot of covers for the Vertigo label, but also others like RCA Neon and Fontana.
This album is one of our favourite albums from the Golden Era.
