Description:

This is the original mono issue of 'Wonderwall Music', released on 1 November 1968. The songs are all instrumental pieces, except for occasional non-English vocals, and mostly comprise short musical vignettes. Following his Indian-styled compositions for the Beatles since 1966, he used the film score project to further promote Indian classical music by introducing rock audiences to instruments that were relatively little-known in the West – including shehnai, sarod, tar shehnai and santoor. The Indian pieces are contrasted by Western musical selections, in the psychedelic rock, experimental, country and ragtime styles. While viewed as a curiosity by some rock music critics, 'Wonderwall Music' is recognised for its inventiveness in fusing Western and Eastern sounds, and as being a precursor to the 1980s world music trend.

The vinyl is shiny, having hardly been played by the looks of it, although there are some light scratches to both sides.  Grades excellent.
