They signed to Warner Brothers, recruited vocalist Mo Armstrong, and released the single, "High Again"/"To The Rescue" (WB 8012) and the "Daddy Longlegs" LP (WB 3004). With both Armstrong and Hayton leaving soon after, Carrison and Palomaki recruited vocalist/pianist Pete Arnesen and guitarist/vocalist Gary "Norton" Holderman and became one of the first American acts to sign to Vertigo Records. The 12-track "Oakdown Farm" LP was released in 1971 (6360 038) and has remained a collectors item ever since. This was the act's second album and has elements of country music to basic rock styles and is an authentic taste of that relaxed, open feel which is the essence of American rural culture. The promise of work in films brought the group to Europe in 1969, and although such plans were later aborted, they decided to settle in England. Daddy Longlegs showcased their appealing brand of good-time, country-influenced rock before the line-up was expanded to accommodate vocalist Mo Armstrong. Both he and Hayton then left the group, following which the drummer and bass player were joined by Peter Arneson (piano) and Gary ‘Norton’ Holderman (guitar), the latter of whom had worked with Carrison in Slim’s Blues Band. Oakdown Farm was released on the renowned Vertigo label, but progress was hampered by further changes in personnel. Daddy Longlegs disbanded in 1972, following which Arneson teamed with former members of Gracious and the Greatest Show On Earth in the pop group, Taggett. Their original vinyls are now hugely collectable and have seen their prices soar. A great complete 1st pressing of this iconic and rare album of the 20th century! ALBUM PLAYED FOR GRADING: Yes – brilliant! - TOP AUDIO Oakdown Farm is a complex collection of sings and is also a sensitive piece of vinyl. Worn copies can have a lot of surface sound even on musically complex and busy tracks like ‘Please Believe Me’. It is so hard to find a 1st pressing with great audio performance. I am pleased to say that this ULTRA RARE pressing plays through with great, undisturbed audio. This great record plays up to the high visual grading and beyond. Strong sound free of any loud pops or clicks, the channels are clean and unstressed. It has been hardly played. There is some light occasional static (as found on all vinyls) but it is very light, and the audio is brilliant strong and clear, its is a stunning listen. I will give a detailed account below: This great sounding 1st press starts with very little detectable static in the run ins and intro to 'Rubber Tyre', a mixed track that can be plagued by crackle, hiss and static. There's just one tic in outro. Just great clear sound, the track plays superbly with not a single loud click or pop. The audio is superb. Again the intro to 'Double Decker' also sounds very clear and the whole of the first side really plays with superbly clear perfect audio throughout. Any surface sound is extremely quiet and infrequent. There is just one light click during the guitar solo, some light static but certainly not even a hint of distortion. There is hardly even a noticeable static at all. 'Please Believe' sounds superb, with crystal clear audio, just one small tic in the outro and one in between tracks. 'Lonely Way' comes in again with incredibly clear bright sound, I could detect a small amount of static but with no distortion and a single light pop in the first verse and a light tic at the end. I can confirm this whole album plays without a hint of distortion what so ever, and thats incredibly rare for any original 1st pressing of Oakdown Farm. 'Sweet Louise' and 'Wheeling and Dealing' end side 1. with great clear sound. Some barely audible occasional static, and no loud pops or clicks what so ever. Superb. 'Rusty Door' brings in side 2. with amazing clear audio. 'Gambling Man' also plays superbly, still with no pops or clicks, and absolutely minimal static. I'm very happy to say that the same goes for the intro to 'Clare Bell' There is one small tic during the intro and some very light static. So often heavily distorted and affected by clicks and hiss, it plays through with amazing clarity and superb bright sound. Even the stunning 'Night Shift', such a difficult track to find with clear sound, plays superbly. An amazing audio performance. 'Moog' and 'Boogie' round off the album again with great clear sound. There is one click at the start and amazing clear audio, this really stunning performance. This great 1st press record plays with staggering power, great audio nothing obtrusive to distract from the over all enjoyment of this great record. There is very little surface or static noise between the tracks, even in the long quiet sections it is clean, crisp and rich. The music jumps out, with definition and clarity, particularly on the percussion instruments, and vocals, which come through with tremendous power and clarity. As is the same with the keyboard layering and drums, whilst the guitars come through crisp and clear. On the whole this lp plays with superb, clear bright rich audio. Normal 0 false false false EN-GB JA X-NONE The sound quality is consistent and extremely high on this rare 1st pressing. I would give an overall audio grading at NEAR MINT! THE RECORD – Visual GradingA stunning piece of glossy vinyl, this rare 1st press is really thick and chunky, with amazing deep clear grooves. In daylight it looks unmarked. A couple of faint whispy paper handling marks. A stunning unplayed example! Graded at MINT. VINYL TESTED FOR ANY SIGNS OF WARPING: Yes, NONE visible what so ever when tested be sight and on a moving turntable. THE LABELSThis ultra rare pressing comes with the 1st Vertigo labels, in GREAT Condition, no marks or writing, no discernible spindle wear, and virtually NO discernible spindle traces. Making this a true rarity, especially in this condition. A lovely set of labels. No spindle traces. Absolutely no marks or writing what so ever, and NO brush marks that these labels seem prone to, and no spindle wear. Great all round examples! Graded at NEAR MINT. THE COVER The unlaminated textured covers of OAKDOWN FARM are very prone to wear. These covers usually faired badly, with serious ring wear, scuffs along the edges, serious cracks and creasing and rubbing to the textured surfaces. The spines are nearly always flattened, worn and scuffed. This Ultra Rare 1st ever press cover is in great condition, with minimal scuffing to the corners, and virtually no rubbing along the edges, and that is virtually un heard of. The opening edges are very square and un frayed, again unheard of. All round, this is a really nice example, with some very minor handling wear. Graded at EXCELLENT to EXCELLENT PLUS. THE INNER Original Vertigo inner sleeve in VERY GOOD PLUS to EXCELLENT condition. No tears, stains, just some light creasing and NO seem splits at all!And don't be fooled, these are completely different to all other inner sleeves from the UK pressings. These inners are themselves rare and so hard to find with out heavy wear, graffiti, tears and splitting. RARITY OAKDOWN FARM was produced in a tiny run, and has not been re produced in large quantities. It is now considered a truly iconic album of the 20th century. Finding an original UK early pressing in great condition is unbelievably rare. It is an extremely rare collectable, it is so hard to find an original pressing with even an decent audio performance. There are so many quiet passages, it is undoubtedly one of the hardest pieces of vinyl from the early 1970's to find with great audio. The cover is almost impossible to find without serious wear, even modestly worn examples are scarce and this one is a brilliant example. Finding a great cover like this, with a great piece of vinyl, rare 1st press inner sleeve, fantastic!. A 1st pressing in this type of condition is impossible to find. The vinyl is so often played so much, heavily marked, scratched, with noisy, poor and distorted sound. Any 1st press examples with a record in this type of condition, that plays superbly are incredibly rare. An ORIGINAL UK press, with ORIGINAL press cover and ORIGINAL inner sleeve, all in great condition, makes this very rare indeed! <div style="text-align:center"><a style="text-decoration:none" href=""><img src="" border="0"></a></div> <div style="text-align:center"><a style="text-decoration:none" href=""><img src="" border="0"></a></div> RARE COMPLETE CLASSIC ORIGINAL VINYLS WITH TOP AUDIO AND GREAT CONDITION THROUGHOUT WE SPECIALISE IN RARE COLLECTABLE PRESSINGS - WITH GREAT SOUND UNINTERRUPTED BY INTERFERENCE.
