MANDRAKE MEMORIAL – PUZZLE – Promo LP + promo package (Poppy PJ-3400 
/ PYS-40006 US 1970) LP  OFFERS / TRADE
Yes this is it…the real thing. The ultra-rare promo release for Puzzle, 
one of the most ambitious psych albums ever conceived.. Was only sent out 
to a few select radio DJs in the US prior to release. Estimated edition; 
100 copies only (!). Here’s what it is: An oversized box style cover which 
is in Vg condition. Since this is over sized and the outer package I think 
all surviving copies are in VG condition or less.  This unique outer cover 
opens upin the middle. On the flaps are printed a text and photo on the 
mandrake on one side and on the other flap is Eschers text on the trilobite. 
Inside is a promo copy of the album. It has the regular gatefold sleeve, 
but it is embossed with “Not for sale – promotion use only” on the lower 
left corner of the back cover. This sleeve is Ex-. The disc is housed in 
the Poppy stock inner sleeve and the disc is in a nice Ex condition. The 
promotional material inside is a unique 4-page Mandrake Memorial band 
biography, Individual promo photos of all the band members, one promo 
photo with the full band and a picture/letter from the famous Japanese 
musical conductor Seiji Ozawa. All these are in great shape.  Pretty
