One of his really elusive 45's from the golden year of 1969.

"Pharaoan House Crash" real-deal '69 Reggae the original A-side, suffered when Melodisc distributed FAB records decided to promote "Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da " which missed the mood on the streets completely. Leaving low exoposure for "Pharaoan House Crash" giving birth to a rarity, shimmering with danceability.

This copy is in sensational condition, perhaps even previously unplayed, act accordingly rare 1969 Skinhead Reggae rarely comes to market in close to perfect condition.

The real flipside witnesses Prince Buster and team jamming a cheeky remake of the Lennon & McCartney novelty composition so popular at the time for The Marmalade. The reason why the label owner were under the impression is may trigger sales...but it didn't.

Condition Report

3 prong centre intact, two clean labels, no writing, stains, sticker or tears. Only a very soft, hardly visible residue shadow on the a-side label. (see images) Vinyl is an amazing MINT MINUS! The spindle hole is so tight, suggesting no turntable action at all. Full gloss with hardly a hairline, only minuscule signs of original wavy-top white sleeve storage. An unbeatable copy.
