Spirit - Mechanical World

December 27, 2015

Spirit - Mechanical World

This is Spirit's first single, released in 1968 and culled from their debut album. Interestingly, although Spirit were quite a left-field, psychedelic band, they sold well enough to make the top 40 album charts. The first record peaked at #31 but stayed on the charts fo 8 months. It was, on reflection, a document of the time. A soft, stoned, drifty kind of record.

Their second single I Got A Line On You was a big hit, but this one sold the square root of nothing, which makes it all the more remarkable that I picked this promo copy at a car boot sale in a field in Norfolk. I suspect it made its way over here via US service men and women at nearby Lakenheath.

That makes it a super-rare and collectible record.

They were not mere venues for bands to play, they [...]

As you'll know, if you come to DJTees often, I'm a vinyl record collector. I love records to an almost unhealthy degree and it's been this way pretty much since I was given Manfred Mann's 'Doo Wah Diddy' single by my parents in 1966. When I bought my first album - The Best of Status [...]
