OBSCURE RECORDS (FULL SERIES - 10 LP's)
[10 LP]

Obscure Records, 1975 - 1978
10 LP's (full decriptions below)
Not sold separately!

Obscure Records was a U.K. record label which existed from 1975 to 1978. It was created and run by Brian Eno. Ten albums were issued in the series. 
Most have detailed liner notes on their back covers, analyzing the compositions and providing a biography of the composer, in a format typical of classical music albums, and much of the material can be regarded as 20th century classical music. 
The label provided a venue for experimental music.

All albums on the UK Obscure label, except OBS 5 which is the USA Antilles (cutout) version. 
All vinyl is in VG+ - Excellent (NM) condition (as stated below). The collection has been kept with great care - though they are difficult to grade exactly because the vinyl used in those times was not of the best quality.
Covers are VG+ to VG++: they show some slight wear due to their age; backsides show slight discoloration of the original white background
