Item Description

On offer here is a VERY rare Double LP (especially in this condition!!!!) by Bob Dylan called "Blonde On Blonde" and is an ORIGINAL 1966 UK 1st Pressing on the 1st Press 'Textured' CBS labels!!!! THIS DOUBLE LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!! THIS IS ONE OF BOB DYLAN'S RAREST LPs EVER - AND VIRTUALLY NEVER TURNS UP FOR SALE!!!! JUST TRY AND FIND ANOTHER ONE!!!! BACK IN 1966 WHEN THIS DOUBLE LP WAS FIRST RELEASED IN THE UK - IT ONLY EVER SOLD IN ABSOLUTELY TINY AMOUNTS, AND WAS ALMOST IMMEDIATELY DELETED!!!! AS A RESULT IT IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND INCREDIBLY HARD TO LOCATE TODAY!!!! BUT WHAT MAKES THIS DOUBLE LP EVEN RARER STILL, IS THAT IT IS 1ST PRESSED IN MEGA RARE STEREO!!!! AND THIS IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ON THIS LP!!!! WHEN THIS DOUBLE LP WAS FIRST RELEASED BACK IN 1966, NEARLY EVERY 1ST PRESSING WAS MADE IN COMMON MONO - WITH VIRTUALLY NONE IN MEGA RARE STEREO AT ALL!!!! AND DEMAND FOR STEREOs WAS SO TINY BACK IN 1967, THAT MOST SHOPS DIDNT EVEN STOCK STEREOs AS STANDARD - AND THEY WERE ONLY AVAILABLE BY 'SPECIAL ORDER' ONLY!!!! AS A RESULT, FINDING A 1ST PRESSING OF THIS DOUBLE LP IN MEGA RARE STEREO IS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE - AS BARELY ANY WERE EVER MADE!!!!

BUT WHAT MAKES THIS DOUBLE LP REALLY SPECIAL - IS THAT IT IS THE 'EARLIEST' UK STEREO 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE - FROM THE VERY 'DAY OF RELEASE' BACK IN 1966!!!! AND THIS IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ON THIS DOUBLE LP - AND MAKES IT THE ALL TIME UK BOB DYLAN LP EVER MADE!!!! AS MOST BOB DYLAN COLLECTORS WILL ALREADY KNOW, LATER STEREO PRESSINGS OF THIS LP ARE VERY COMMON INDEED (AND WELL WORTH AVOIDING!) - BUT FINDING A 100% GENIUNE UK 'EARLIEST' STEREO 1ST PRESSING IS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE (AS ONLY A TINY HANDFUL WERE EVER MADE!)!!!! AND THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE OF THIS DOUBLE LP - AS THIS 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING HAS A DIFFERENT COVER, DIFFERENT LABELS, WRONG TRACKLISTING, AND A DIFFERENT MIX ON SOME TRACKS!!!! INCREDIBLY THIS LP TRULY IS THE EARLIEST 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE - AS IT HAS 1/1/1/1 STEREO MATRIX ENDINGS (LATER ONES DONT!), 'THICK BLOCK' CBS LOGOS ON THE LABELS (LATER ONES ARE THINNER!), '33' LABEL TEXT (LATER ONES DONT!), A 'PRINTED STEREO' LOGO ON THE FRONT OF THE COVER (LATER ONES DONT!), 'INTERNAL FLIPBACKS' TO THE STEREO COVER (LATER ONES DONT!), AND THE TRACK 'STUCK IN A MOBILE WITH THEE' IS MISCREDITED AS 'MEMPHIS BLUES AGAIN' (LATER COPIES AFTER THE 'DAY OF RELEASE' HAVE THIS CORRECTED - SEE MY CLOSE UP PICTURE OF THE LABEL!)!!!! NOT ONLY THAT - BUT THIS 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS STEREO MIX IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT TO THE MONO MIX AND LATER STEREO COPIES!!!! FOR EXAMPLE 'TEMPORARY LIKE ACHILLES' HAS A MUCH LONGER ENDING ON THIS STEREO VERSION - WHICH THE MONOS SIMPLY NEVER HAD!!!! THERE ARE ALSO MANY OTHER MIX DIFFERENCES ON OTHER TRACKS TOO - WITH THE ONE ABOVE BEING JUST ONE EXAMPLE!!!! SO THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT AT ALL - THAT THIS IS THE 'EARLIEST' & RAREST UK STEREO 1ST PRESSING THAT YOU CAN POSSIBLY GET - AND COMPLETELY DIFFERENT COMPARED TO ALL LATER PRESSINGS!!!!

NOT ONLY THAT BUT THIS DOUBLE LP IS IN ABSOLUTELY SUPERB CONDITION (WITH AN AMAZING SET OF RECORDS!) - AND HAS BARELY BEEN PLAYED AT ALL!!!! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURES!!!! THIS IS THE ORIGINAL 1966 UK STEREO 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING ON THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 'FULLY TEXTURED' CBS LABELS, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 'MATCHING' CBS ADVERTISING INNER SLEEVES, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS CBS 'THICK BLOCK' LOGO ON THE LABELS, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS '33' LABEL TEXT, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS DIFFERENT MIX, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS MISCREDITED LABELS, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 1/1/1/1 STEREO MATRIX ENDINGS, AND 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS GATEFOLD LAMINATED FLIPBACK 'STEREO' COVER!!!! THIS DOUBLE LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS - SO DONT MISS OUT ON THIS AMAZING OPPORTUNITY!!!! This is the ORIGINAL CBS UK 1st Pressing from 1966 and is in SUPERB condition!!!! The records are pressed on THICK quality vinyl. The Cat. No is SDDP 66012 on the ORIGINAL 'Textured' Orange CBS label (see picture) and is a much MUCH rarer UK STEREO 1st Pressing!!!!

BOTH record labels are in SUPERB condition (see pictures) with NO wear, NO writing, and barely ANY spindle marks AT ALL!!!! IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT THESE RECORDS HAVE BARELY BEEN PLAYED AT ALL!!!! The vinyl on BOTH records is in absolutely AWESOME condition!!!! Most of these 60s Double LPs had been to a lot of wild parties and are usually found totally worn out, and almost unplayable. This one is NOT and BOTH records have NO scratches, NO hairlines, only 1 ULTRA light scuffline trace (only visible under the VERY brightest of lights!), only 2 or 3 ULTRA light TINY surface traces, and only a VERY few of the lightest paper scuffs only visible under light!!!! ITS AS SIMPLE AS THAT!!!! BOTH RECORDS STILL RETAIN THEIR ORIGINAL 'JUST PRESSED' LOOK AND LOOK AMAZING!!!! It is also great to find that BOTH records play as STUNNINGLY as the visual with NO pops, NO sticking, NO jumps, barely ANY crackle AT ALL, and only some VERY slight background sound on the run on grooves (though this drops away WELL before the music begins!)!!!! The sound quality is simply SUPERB with NO distortion and NO groovewear either!!!! BOTH records must grade Excellent++++ if not MINT(Minus)!!!! WHAT AN AWESOME SET OF RECORDS!!!! Believe me these records are NOT overgraded in ANY way!!!! I use STRICT RC grading standards - it is not in my interest not to!!!! Brillant!!!! The records also come in their ORIGINAL 1st Press 'matching' CBS Advertising inner sleeves which is in SUPERB condition and completely UNSPLIT!!!! The ORIGINAL 1st Press Gatefold Laminated Flipback STEREO Cover is in absolutely BRILLIANT condition!!!! It has NO edge wear, NO spinal wear (still FULLY Laminated!), only VERY slight corner wear (NOT through the colour!), barely ANY creases AT ALL (cover is VERY flat looking indeed!), only some very VERY minor evidence of 'tipping in' to the EXTREME corner tips, NO rips, NO tears, only 2 or 3 TINY indentations, NO splits, shiny laminate, NO annotations, and NO writing!!!! The opening edges are beautifully straight with barely ANY feathering AT ALL!!!! Even the unlaminated inside of the cover is in SUPERB condition with NO grubbyness, NO rubbing, NO yellowing, SUPERB flipbacks, and NO writing!!!! The cover must grade Very Good++++ if not better!!!! BRILLIANT COVER!!!! THIS DOUBLE LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS (ESPECIALLY AS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE - IN MEGA RARE STEREO!) - SO DONT MISS OUT ON THIS INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY!!!!

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!
