Many thanks to Steve Moore for emailing in with great pics of his rare copy of the “Harvest Sampler Of The Initial Four June Releases” from 1969. This is believed to be a DJ promo only release to help ‘launch’ the newly formed Harvest label. It promotes the first 4 albums on Harvest from Deep Purple, Michael Chapman, Shirley & Dolly Collins and Pete Brown & His Battered Ornaments.
Steve wondered why SHVL753 had been omitted from the sample record and I can advise him that it is my belief that Panama Limited Jug Band’s album was not released until around September/October of 1969 (despite it having the third catalogue number in the sequence between Pete Brown’s SHVL752 and the Collinses’ SHVL754), thereby not being ready in time to be included on the sampler…
It’s a definite rarity, rumoured to be limited to a production run of 100 copies, and thanks once again to Steve for supplying the images and showing an interest in the site! Rest of Harvest section to be updated in next few weeks!
