Rarity Scale – Mega Rare
Here we have an original Dutch 1st pressing on the collectable “Negram” label of the third album by “Q65” called Afghanistan.
The disc of this very copy is in nice condition. We grade it EX. It still have its lovely sheen on the vinyl surface but show some lines and marks here and there. We did a playgrade and must say that by far the most of the disc plays flawless NM! Here and there we’ve noticed some background. Most at the very beginning, run-out and between tracks. We must say it is not very serious at all. Overall it’s a lovely disc and plays and looks much better compared to most copies.
The labels are nice and clean with only a few spindle traces at both sides. There is no writing.
The sleeve of this album is in EX- condition! It is fully intact but shows some wear here and there. At the bottom right corner and top left corner there is a minor bumb. The laminate near the spine has lifted a bit which you see very often. Further the front is nice with no major stains, tears and creases. The back of the cover is also clean. The spine is intact but repaired but overall in OK condition. The opening on the inside of the gatefold is lovely!

A large selection of rare vinyl records from the golden era.
Many record collectors of albums from The Golden Era are familair with “Q65”. The legendary Dutch psych/beat band released 4 legendary albums during The Golden Era. “Afghanistan” is the third album by the band from The Hague.
“Q65” was formed in 1965 in The Hague (The Neterherlands). In The Netherlands the group made success early in their career. The band is considered one of the most succesful and influential groups, the beat movement from The Hague brought us. In The Netherlands, the beat movement from The Hague was huge. Q65 managed to create a large group of fans inside the small country.
Also outside The Netherlands the band made some minor success but never as big as in The Netherlands.
The sound of their early albums was beat/R&B. They covered famous tracks from the Rythem and Blues and created own work. Their later albums changed their sound more into a combinaton of blues rock and psychedelic rock which fitted perfectly in the time when these albums were released.
As said, “Afghanistan” is their third abum and was released in 1970 on the highly collectable “Negram” label. This label released tons of Dutch acts during The Golden Era and after. For us lovers of psychedelic and progressive rock, the legendary album “Cosmic Dealer – Crystallization” is probably the most wanted.
