They went on to record their second studio album, Death May Be Your Santa Claus, at Chalk Farm Studio in 1970. Vic Keary, who became the band's close friend, formed his own label called Mushroom and invited Second Hand to release their album there. The album was released in April 1971 with a supporting single called "Funeral", featuring "Hangin' On An Eyelid" (track 2 from the LP) as the B-side

Druggy Eerie Theatrical Complex Passionate Fiery Freewheeling Paranoid Trippy. Imagination Late Night. Death May Be Your Santa Claus. Among the many obscure British prog rock albums of the early '70s, Second Hand's Death May Be Your Santa Claus has to be one of the strangest, though not necessarily one of the best. While it's the kind of record likely to fire up genre enthusiasts, it's equally likely to inspire scorn from more general rock listeners unlikely to take a shine to its over the top frivolous absurdity.

This version is the repress from 1972 & contains The Funeral Single as the first track. I bought this version in early 1973. So This is clearly from 1972.

Helo
It is fake info. The 1972 version is also contained as original! A different version! From that exist a millenioum repress conterfereit bootleg version. Would be nice if discogs people would separate this chaos.

MrCat
larrydart. Are you sure the 1972 edition is a repress? Or this version is A REPRESS, from around 1995???
