 Elmer Gantry`s Velvet Opera  "Untitled" Bootleg Lp BBC Radio 1, UK January 27, 1968 bootleg

full album

“This session predates the first album by six months, and finds the band still relying on some excellent cover versions, as well as group originals. The line up was changeable. Colin Forster would be replaced for the second album by Paul Brett. Hudson and Ford spent a little time in the Strawbs before becoming very successful and commercial with their ‘Hudson-Ford’ collaboration.”
Taken from the back cover of a bootleg LP.

Four of the BBC tracks can also be found on two unofficial releases ('Artefacts From The Psychedelic Dungeon’ and 'Hard Up Heroes #2 - When The Beeb Was Cool’), but here is the entire session, complete with a brief interview. Another batch of studio outtakes from around this time can be heard on 'The Electric Lemonade Acid Test’, vols. 3 and 4 on Tenth Planet and both comes highly recommended.
