The Beat of the Earth – 1st Pressing “Artistic Statement” Acid Psych LP in Mint Condition

A beautiful Mint (with full shrink wrap)/ NM to EX+ first pressing of The Beat of The Earth’s This Record Is An Artistic Statement album, a 1967 private press rarity of 500 copies on the Radish label. This Record Is An Artistic Statement is the first private press psychedelic album masterminded by Phil Pearlman, aka Phil Gadahn, the man also responsible for The Electronic Hole and Relatively Clean Rivers. A Pokara listed rarity, this is extremely rare and highly sought after.

The sleeve is in the original shrink wrap and grades absolutely Mint. The disc plays perfectly but like most copies has some minor imperfections–here, on Side 1 some pressing bubbles, and on Side 2 a silent scuff. We’re grading it NM/EX+, but it plays perfectly and without issue.

This is the only copy we’ve ever had of this ultra rarity. See our other listings for a similarly beautiful copy of the related The Electronic Hole album.
