A Manship unplayed copy!

Made 1985 in my home town of Melton Mowbray where Ian Morrison, Rob Philpotts, Chris Vye & Steve Philpotts were considered the totem of East Midlands Heavy Rock. They had already recorded the massively sought after "Forgotten Angel" they pressed 2 years earlier 1000 copies to be sold at their gigs around the East Midlands. In my lifetime I have only ever seen two copies of that NWOBHR grail. Frustratingly hard to find, but I still every time I go into town I live in hope. .

Before you today is their second and last release under the name "Prowler", was a smaller press and sent to Red Rhino Records of York for distribution. Imagine the disappointment when such a great slab of small town Heavy Rock, allegedly sold a mere 33 copies. Prowler later went and changed their band name to Passion in 1988 releasing another strong N.W.O.B.H.R. experience.

"Alcatraz" is a NWOBHR trophy in the finest possible condition, MINT UNPLAYED with "Forghotten Angel" hurtling towards a 4 figure heavy rock collectable, at what price will "Alcatraz" rise to in the future..? Rising in value year on year as copies encountered becomes a rare event indeed.
