Rarity Scale – Mega Rare
For many record collectors, this is one of the most wanted UK progressive rock albums. It is not impossible to find but in a lovely condition as this copy can take you a very long time.
We can be short about the disc. It is near perfect. RCA pressings are true quality pressings and sounds very clean (when it is preserved well in the years). This copy was preserved very well and has been in a collection of a serious collector for many years. The vinyl looks looks very shiny and the playback is lovely. No major defects. Only the very slightest of crackle at the very beginning and run-out. All the music plays like it was bought yesterday! Just lovely!
The sleeve is in EX+ condition. On the front there is a small defect, probably caused by a sticker. There is no tear but a bit of discoloration. The ringwear on the back of this cover is much less compared to most copies. Almost none, which is really rare because the sleeve is always the problem with this album when it comes to condition.
The front of the sleeve is lovely. Same story goes for the spine. It is completely intact and fully readable. The opening is also really nice!
This album comes with the correct black inner sleeve.
Please take a very good look at the photos to get a good impression!

A large selection of rare vinyl records from the golden era.
All serious record collectors with a focus on the UK progressive rock albums from The Golden Era knows this fantastic album! The music on this album is much more progressive compared to their legendary debut on “Evolution Records”.
All the songs are really good. The vocals are awesome and the musicianship is great. It has almost all the ingredients to make it essential. We can’t understand why this album was completely missed by the public. Only a handfull of copies sold back in 1971.
“Time is” is the second and final album released by “Raw Material”. The album was released in 1971 on the legendary “RCA Neon” label which was the answer from RCA on the “Vertigo” label which was launched by Philips almost two years earlier. “RCA Neon” wasn’t given a long life. The label started and folded in the same year. Only 11 releases came out on RCA Neon.
