STATUS QUO “Technicolor Dreams” RARE Aussie ASTOR 7”, psych / UK Pye issue was withdrawn

 

The Status Quo – Technicolor Dreams 7” (orig. Australia Astor MONO AP-1574)

Australian Release date: December 1968 (UK Release date: 8 November 1968, withdrawn).  Recording date: September 1968.

 

On offer here is an EXTREMELY RARE original Australian issue of “Technicolor Dreams” 7” single by THE STATUS QUO.  Here’s an opportunity to acquire a copy of this 45 at a fraction of the price of a British original, which was withdrawn immediately after release.  It should be noted that the Aussie issue sold poorly at the time and didn’t even chart, so do not miss the opportunity to acquire one of the RAREST STATUS QUO VINYL ARTEFACTS ever issued worldwide!
