Rarity Scale – Mega Rare
Here we have a lovely EX/EX copy of the mega underground psych cult “SOUP”. Released in 1970, overlooked by many and almost impossible to find nowadays.
The disc plays fantastic with only some minor crackle here and there. It is not the beste pressing but the music plays further loud and clear. Obviously this record havn’t seen many recordplayers during its long life. The disc shows a few very tiny hairlines, but all of them are inaudible. There is some foxing around the label on both sides but I am sure this is caused during the production of the disc. Overall I grade the disc EX because most of the music plays lovely with only some minor crackle here and there. The disc looks a bit less.
The sleeve is in EX to EX+ condition. It is fully intact and also the paper sheet with the credits and info is lovely. The sleeve still has its shrink around it. Lovely!! The spine, opening, edges and corners are super nice!
This copy comes with the original plain paper 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.
Besides the information on the original leaflet added to the sleeve, there is not much known about Soup.
The Group was a collective of 4 fantastic artists able to make a selection of amazing psychedelic/blues tracks. There are no weak points on this album IMHO!
The group was founded in Appleton, Wisconsin during the late 60’s and released their only album privately in 1970 on the private “ARF ARM ARTISTS” label.
As said the music on the album is Psychedelic Rock with a lot of Blues Rock influences. All very well crafted songs with fantastic guitar work!!
I am not exactly sure how many copies are pressed but I know there are several sleeve variations (probably 2 or 3) around with different printed leaflets and stamped numbers on the brown cardboard sleeve. The copy up here for sale has a 3 stamped and the original leaflet with the band name fat printed.
