JUST TRY AND FIND ANOTHER ONE!!!!IT IS ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT LPs ON THE HARVEST LABEL - AND IS INCREDIBLY HARD TO LOCATE TODAY!!!!BUT WHAT MAKES THIS LP REALLY SPECIAL - IS THAT IT IS IN ABSOLUTELY AWESOME CONDITION,STILL HAS ITS ORIGINAL 'BLACK OUTER SEAL', 'PICTURE/CREDITS' SHAPED INNER SLEEVE, 'POSTCARD' & STICKER - AND IS 100% COMPLETE IN EVERY WAY!!!! AND THIS IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ON THIS LP!!!! WHEN THIS LP WAS FIRST RELEASED BACK IN 1975 - ALL 1ST PRESSINGS WERE SEALED IN ABLACK PLASTIC 'FACTORY SEAL' AND HAD A 'WISH YOU WERE HERE' STICKER PLACED ON THE BLACK PLASTIC ON THE COVER FRONT!!!! HOWEVER - BECAUSE THIS LP WAS 'FULLY FACTORY SEALED' - YOU HAD TO BREAK THE SEAL TO PLAY THE LP!!!! NATURALLY - 99.9% OF 1ST PRESSINGS HAD THE BLACK SEAL & STICKER COMPLETELY RIPPED OFF AND THROWN AWAY - AS BUYERS SIMPLY WERE UNCONCERNED WITH KEEPING IT, AND SIMPLY WANTED TO HEAR THE AWESOME MUSIC!!!! HOWEVER, THIS LP WAS LOOKED AFTER AMAZINGLY WELL - WITH THE PLASTIC SEAL LEFT ON THE COVER & BARELY ACCESSED AT ALL!!!! AND MOST IMPORTANTLY OF ALL - THE 'WISH YOU WERE HERE' STICKER IS STILL PROUDLY AND PERFECTLY STUCK ON THE COVER FRONT BLACK PLASTIC -EXACTLY WHERE IT WAS PLACED IN THE FACTORY BACK IN 1975!!!! AND I CANNOT OVER STATE THE HUGE RARITY OF FINDING THIS LP STILL WITH ITS ORIGINAL 'BLACK PLASTIC FACTORY SEAL' & COVER STICKER!!!! JUST HOW MANY EXIST LIKE THIS TODAY IS ANYONES GUESS - BUT I AM VERY CERTAIN THAT IT IS WAY WAY LESS THAN 1%!!!! IN FACT - I WOULD GO AS FAR AS TO SAY THAT FOR EVERY 500 COPIES LISTED ONLINE - ONLY 1 OUT OF THOSE 500 WILL STILL HAVE IT!!!! IT REALLY IS THAT RARE!!!!

ANOTHER IMPORTANT PART OF THE LP - IS THE ULTRA RARE 'POSTCARD'!!!! THIS WAS ANOTHER PART OF THE LP THAT WAS OFTEN DEEMED SURPLUS TO REQUIREMENTS BY OWNERS, AND USUALLY THROWN AWAY ON THE VERY DAY OF PURCHASE!!!! BUT THIS LP STILL HAS IT - AND IT HAS REMAINED IN FANTASTIC CONDITION!!!!

THIS LP IS MADE EVEN RARER STILL, AS IT IS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE - WITH ULTRA RARE 'A-1/B-3' MATRIX ENDINGS - WHICH WERE THE 'EARLIEST POSSIBLE' 1ST PRESS MATRIXES EVER MADE FOR THIS LP!!!! NOT ONLY THAT (AS MENTIONED ABOVE!) THIS LP IS IN ABSOLUTELY AMAZING CONDITION - AND HAS BARELY BEEN PLAYED AT ALL!!!! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURES!!!!

THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS- SO DONT MISS OUT ON THISAMAZING OPPORTUNITY!!!! This is the ORIGINAL Harvest UK 1st Pressing from 1975 and is in AWESOME condition!!!! The record is pressed on THICK quality vinyl!!!! The Cat. No is SHVL 814 on the ORIGINAL 1st Press Harvest label (see picture) and is a UK Stereo 1st Pressing (there were NO Monos!)!!!!

The record labels are in SUPERB condition (see pictures) withNO wear, NO writing,and barely ANY spindle marks AT ALL!!!! IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT THIS RECORD HAS BARELY BEEN PLAYEDAT ALL!!!! The vinyl is in absolutely AWESOME condition!!!! Most of these 60s/70s LPs had been to a lot of wild parties and are usually found totally worn out, and almost unplayable. This one is NOT and has NO scratches, NO hairlines, NO scufflines, and only a VERY few of the lightestpaper scuffs only visible under light!!!!ITS AS SIMPLE AS THAT!!!! THE RECORD STILL RETAINS ITS ORIGINAL 'JUST PRESSED' LOOK AND LOOKS AMAZING!!!! It is alsogreat to find that the record plays as STUNNINGLYas the visual with NO pops,NO sticking, NO jumps, barely ANY crackle AT ALL, and only some EXTREMELY low level background sound in places (though mostly NONE!)!!!! The record is also fractionally uneven (barely any!) - though any system in the would will effortlessly play it (and most people wouldnt even mention it!)!!!! The sound quality is simply SUPERB with NO distortion and NO groovewear either!!!! The record must grade MINT(Minus)!!!! AWESOME RECORD!!!! Believe me this record is NOT overgraded in ANY way!!!! I use STRICT RC grading standards - it is not in my interest not to!!!! Brillant!!!! The record comes in its ORIGINAL 1st Press Shaped 'Picture' inner sleeve which is in absolutely AWESOME condition (see close up pictures!) - with NO splits, and NO repairs either!!!! THE ULTRA RARE SERRATED EDGED 'POSTCARD' IS IN ABSOLUTELY AWESOME CONDITION (SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES!) - AND CLEARLY HASNT EVER LEFT THE COVER!!!! The ORIGINAL1st Press'Factory Sealed' Cover (+Sticker!)isin absolutely AWESOME condition!!!! Of course - most of the cover is still 'Factory Sealed' (and will be MINT!) - but the remaining part of the coverhasNO edge wear, NO spinal wear, barely ANY corner wear AT ALL, barely ANY creases AT ALL(cover isVERY flat looking indeed!), NO ringwear, NO rubbing,and NO writing!!!! The Black Plastic seal is in SUPERB condition (exactly as pictured!) - and even better still, over the years (no doubt from careful storage & suction and natural shrinkage) it has become almost immoveable on the cover where the seal ends - which means it is NOT flapping about and prone to further damage as so many are!!!! The opening edge is beautifully straight with barely ANY feathering AT ALL!!!! Even the back of the coveris in AWESOME condition withNO grubbyness, NO yellowing,NO rubbing, NO ringwear, and NO writing!!!! And the 'Wish You Were Here' Sticker on the outside of the Black Seal is in absolutely AWESOME condition too!!!! The cover must gradeExcellent++++ if not better!!!! AWESOME COVER!!!!

MY POSTAGE UNDERCHARGE GUARANTEE TO ALL BUYERS (I always undercharge on postage!):- Due to UK Royal Mail's obscene price increases this year - I have had no choice but to increase postage charges a little. Until this year - I had kept them exactly the same since I joined ebay back in 2002. However this years price increases have been so obscene, that I have had no choice but to increase my postage charges for the first time ever. However PLEASE NOTE - my absolute 100% guarantee to you as a buyer - is that I will ALWAYS undercharge postage on everything I send out. Even after the increases, I am still charging you the buyer LESS than I am being charged myself. On each package I send out - the price is clearly stated on the front of the package (please check it when you recieve it!). I also do NOT charge for packaging costs - ONLY for postal costs! And should you find that I have overcharged you postage in ANY way - I will refund DOUBLE the difference. THAT IS MY 100% POSTAL GUARANTEE FOR EACH AND EVERY BUYER! No buyer EVER deserves to be overcharged on postage - and on my listings, I'll make sure they are ALWAYS undercharged. Any questions - please ask!
