2 LP Orange and Black ‘Fire’ Vinyl
Exclusive RSD Black Friday 2021 Limited edition
But it took 35 years before this material saw the light of day with the release
of The Prophet: The Unreleased First Polydor Album on CD. Augmenting the
11-track running order that would have made up that disc, the single-CD package
contained 30-plus minutes of previously unreleased outtakes, including
tunes documented at an aborted March of 1971 session.
This stuff is every bit as good as the official Polydor releases; the medley of “After
Hours”/”The Messiah Will Come Again,” for instance, might even be better
than the respective later versions of those songs that showed up on Roy’s albums.
Never before on vinyl, the Prophet comes in a 2-LP set pressed in orange
and black “fire” vinyl (because you won’t often encounter more fiery guitar
work than what’s here), housed in a gatefold jacket and limited to 2500 copies
