Faust - "Faust IV" (Virgin Records, 1973)

One of my favorite records of all time. I love this mythical psychedelic Virgin Records label design - they don't make 'em like this anymore.
From Wikipedia: "The original Virgin logo (known to fans as the "Gemini" or "Twins" logo) was designed by English artist and illustrator Roger Dean: a young naked woman in mirror image with a large long-tailed serpent and the word "Virgin" in Dean's familiar script. A variation on the logo was used for the spin-off Caroline Records label."
Actually, I don't remember where I picked up this one. But this reissue was "researched, spearheaded, and co-ordinated" in 2009 by Tom Recchion (of the Los Angeles Free Music Society/Poo-Bah Records)...


  1. Wow, I've never seen the black-n-white version of this. Very cool. I put up a Tangerine Dream album with the color version of this label a while back.
