    We were at last night's wonderful gig...got home to re-live some Roy recording moments. BUT...we have decided to offer to the highest bidder our genuine proper colour printed sleeve (never glued) white label pressing of COMMERCIAL BREAKS. MINT CONDITION I had a work colleague whose brother worked at Harvest and he got this for us, genuinely believing it was about to be released ...4077 and all that...This was signed by ROY, at Newcastle University Theatre many years ago...he nearly snapped it in half, but then he wrote 'Not Good Enough' across the white label, plus his autograph. Nick was there and said he had heard of this LP but never seen a copy!! Darren Crisp offered us £200 at the time, we can't remember when but Roy had a Citroen CX Safari as his transport and Bose PA...maybe 20 years ago or more?? Before we put this on Ebay we wanted the Stormers to have a chance to acquire this absolute rarest piece ever of Harperalia...email us stuartlangford@hotmail.com Apologies is this post breaks forum rules, we weren't sure if selling an item was allowed!

    Proper colour sleeve, eh? That is massively rare. How much are you looking for, out of interest?

    Hi there...we know it's rare and we are looking for substantial offers over £300, perhaps £400+ We hope for more!!

    The album is perfect, autographed, the real Garrod and Lofthouse printed card sleeve, LP has matrix number 2U-A and 2U-B stamped on the vinyl...it was about to be released then got pulled literally that week we believe. The sleeve has no tabs and folds, so may be a pre-production run proof, like a test pressing/white label. But it is the full colour one, never seen in captivity before...the legendary missing copy?

    Best wishes
    Stuart

    I'll take a photo, to the best quality I can manage, and happily email it to anyone that wants it. Wasn't there a CD release with the 'original' artwork? I can't quite remember!
