PAWN HEARTS IS THE FOURTH ALBUM BY ENGLISH PROG BAND, VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR AND FEATURES ROBERT FRIPP ON GUITAR IN PARTS. IT WAS RELEASED ON THE UK LABEL, CHARISMA IN 1971. THE BAND WAS FRONT BY PETER HAMILL AND THE ALBUM HAD LIMITED SUCCESS IN THE UK DESPITE MAKING NUMBER 1 IN ITALY.  THERE ARE THREE TRACKS ON THIS VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR ALBUM INCLUDING THE EPIC " A PLAGUE OF LIGHTHOUSE KEEPERS" WHICH TALES UP ALL OF SIDE 2.

BACK IN THE DAY, VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR WERE PART OF THE CHARISMA LABEL THAT INCLUDED GENESIS, LINDISFARNE AND MANY MORE. THEIR ORIGINAL ALBUM RELEASES ON THE CHARISMA LABEL ESPECIALLY ON THE PINK PABEL ARE HARD TO FIND.

THIS COPY OF VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR'S - PAWN HEARTS IS THE ORIGINAL FIRST PRESSING WITH FIRST MATRIX NUMBERS AND THE RARE ONE SIDED LYRIC INNER. WHILST IT DIDN'T SELL WELL UPON RELEASE IT HAS BEEN CALLED A "MISUNDERSTOOD MASTERPIECE" BY THE LAMENTED "Q" MAGAZINE AND WAS A BIG INFLUENCE ON BANDS LIKE MARILLION. FISH IS A BIG FAN. TO ME, THE ALBUM EPITOMISES BRITISH PROG ROCK OF THAT TIME, IT WAS NEW AND EXPERIMENTAL AND STILL HOLDS UOP TO THIS DAY.
