Dan Lacksman's 1973 self-titled release

Featuring him playing guitar and vocals as well as synths

Features an early version of "Skylab"

Neon green pressing limited to 900 copies

Dan Lacksman already had an album (Flamenco Moog) and a minor European hit ("Coconut") under his belt when he recorded 1973's Dan Lacksman, which is a true outlier in his catalog in that it features him on guitar (!) and voice (!!) along with his usual keyboard wizardry. As such, it's probably his most accessible record for those approaching his music from a strictly rock background. An early version of "Skylab" hints at the grand version to come on Tchip Tchip; some of the album sounds like a Belgian version of Steely Dan, and at times you might even hear a little early Eno/Robert Wyatt/Kevin Ayers prog punctuated by a couple of drinking songs. Overall, it's a progressive pop singer-songwriter album and a bit of a trailblazer at that...which explains why original copies go for a mint. Out on a neon green vinyl pressing limited to 900 copies!
