SEE ALL THE SCANS BELOW OF THIS SUPERB AND VERY, VERY RARE 1971 UK NEON RECORD LABEL ALBUM RELEASE FROM, RAW MATERIAL. RAW MATERIAL, TIME IS ORIGINAL AND MEGA RARE 1971 UK RCA/NEON RECORDS VINYL LP, NEON NE 8. RAW MATERIAL is a British band that released two albums in the early 70’s that are now highly collectible. The group consist of your standard prog quartet plus frontman Mike Fletcher on wind instruments. They developed a slightly jazz-tinged progressive rock so typical of that era and their debut album had some great moments (the longer tracks on side1) but was also partially flawed but ends in a bizarre poem recitation to string arrangements. Most prog-heads will prefer the much more even Time Is.. Rare album that appeared on the RCA prog label called Neon records. This album (with the line-up augmented by a second guitarist Harewood) was much more 70’s-sounding and left loads of space for instrument interplay and hold many fine moments that every prog head looking for rare late proto-prog should investigate. This is an original and very rare 1971 UK album release from Raw Material and comes in its original black inner bag and housed in its original Gate-fold Picture Sleeve. Both record labels are in beautiful Near Mint condition, both record labels are undamaged and are almost as new with very minimal sigs of play, all printed text is super clear and unfaded.
