Deadly Rare 1968 Pink Label Stereo Original With The Tough To Find Lyric Insert. Cover Shows Light Ring Wear And Light Seam Wear At The Bottom Left Corner. The Glossy LP Appears Virtually Unplayed. “Duncan Browne's Melancholy First Album, Give Me Take You — Released On Music Impresario Andrew Loog Oldham's Immediate Label In August Of 1968 — Is One Wonderfully Tender Album. Many Who Only Discovered It Well After Its Original Release Compare Its Dulcet Introspective Tone To Nick Drake's Albums. It Does Fall Into A Similar English Folk Vein, Though Browne's Arrangements Are, On The Whole, More Baroque, Giving The Album A Semi-Classical, Regal Feel. Browne Charted His Own Classical Arrangements And Wrote Out Vocal Charts For A Choir, But Turned To His Art School Friend David Bretton For Song Lyrics. It's Bretton's Lovely Pre-Raphaelite-Style Phrases, Used Here In The Guise Of Lyrical Content, That Fans Of This Album Often React Strongly To, One Way Or Another. True, There's A Youthful Innocence And Melancholy That Come Off As Somewhat Naïve-Sounding, Mawkish, And Awkward In Our Modern Age — "Better A Tear Of Truth Than Smiling Lies" Is One Example — But This Is A Minor Quibble. Immediate Issued Only One Single From The Album, "On The Bombsite," But It Failed To Connect With Listeners. At The Time Of Its Release, Oldham's Immediate Records Was Reportedly Falling Apart. He Was In Financial Ruin And Reportedly Cut The Sessions Short To Save Money.” Bryan Thomas & Bruce Eder, AMG.
