THIS LP HAS COME FROM AN INCREDIBLE RECORD COLLECTION, WHERE THE ORIGINAL OWNER HAD PROTECTED THE ALBUMS FOR THE VERY DAY OF PURCHASE BY PLACING THEM INTO PLASTIC OUTER SLEEVES. THEREFORE VIRTUALLY ALL OF THE RECORDS THAT I WILL BE LISTING FROM THIS COLLECTION WILL HAVE MINT, MINT MINUS OR AT THE WORST NEAR MINT SLEEVES!
THE INNER SLEEVES HAVE ALL BEEN KEPT FLAT AND UNWRINKLED AND FURTHER ENHANCE THE COLLECTION.
THE VINYLS ARE ALSO IN THE MOST AMAZING CONDITION POSSIBLE, WITH A FEW HAVING NEVER BEEN PLAYED, AND AGAIN THE GRADING'S VARY BETWEEN MINT AND NEAR MINT...NOTHING LOWER.
THE RECORDS WERE PLACED INTO THOSE RECORD BOXES WITH HANDLES ON THEM, ENSURING THAT THEY HAVE BEEN KEPT AWAY FROM EXTREME HEAT OR SUNLIGHT AND COLD.
FINALLY THERE ARE SOME OF THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER TITLES IN THIS COLLECTION, SO PLEASE CHECK BACK DAILY FOR THE LATEST FROM THIS AMAZING SELECTION OF 197O'S ROCK ALBUMS
THE RECORDS
THE LABELS
THE RED AND PLUM LABELS ARE IN MINT CONDITION. BOTH BASE COLOURS ARE RICH AND VIBRANT, AND THE WHITE BAND IS STILL WHITE AND NOT SOILED AT ALL. THE BLACK TYPEFACE IS UNRUBBED AND PERFECTLY LEGIBLE. FINALLY THERE ARE BETWEEN2-3 TINYSPIDER LINES AROUND THE SPINDLE HOLE SHOWING HOW LITTLE THE VINYL HAS BEEN PLAYED.
THE LABEL HAS ALL OF THE FIRST PRESS INDICATORS. THE CATALOGUE NUMBER ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE LABEL DOESN'T HAVE THE SMALL DASH IN THE MIDDLE LIKE LATER PRESSES, AND IMPORTANTLY THERE PETER GRANT CREDITS ARE THERE WHICH ARE OMITTED FROM ALL OTHER PRESSES
THE VINYL
THE HEAVYWEIGHT VINYL HAS RETAINED ALL OF ITS ORIGINAL SHEEN AND LUSTRE, AND IN DAYLIGHT LOOKSTOTALLY FLAWLESS . EVEN WHEN OFFERED UP TO INTENSE ILLUMINATION, THERE IS NOTHING MORE THAN A FEW WISPY HAIRLINES
A REALLY GLEAMING STUNNING COPY
PLAYING THE RECORD
I BELIEVE THAT IF YOU ARE GOING TO SPEND YOUR MONEY ON A FANTASTIC COLLECTIBLE VINYL, THAT YOU SHOULD BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR WHAT YOU ARE BUYING. I HAVE THEREFORE INVESTED IN THE SOFTWARE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO DO JUST THAT.
I HAVE RECORDED THE ENTIRE ALBUM FROM START TO FINISH AS I DO NOW WITH ALL MY LISTINGS, BECAUSE I AM CONVINCED THAT BIDDERS WOULD LOVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE ABLE TO HEAR THE RECORD BEFORE LAYING A BID. THIS IS A SERVICE I AM DELIGHTED TO BE ABLE TO OFFER MY CUSTOMERS
THIS FIRST PRESS RED AND PLUM ZEP 3 PLAYS SUPERBLY ALL THE WAY THROUGH. AS I HAVE ALREADY SAID IT HAS BARELY BEEN NEAR A TURNTABLE. THERE IS CERTAINLY NO DISTORTION TO THE SOUND WHATSOEVER, MEANING THAT THE LITTLE PLAY IT HAS RECEIVED WAS COMPLETED ON A SYSTEM THAT HAD A CORRECTLY WEIGHTED AND UNWORN STYLUS
THE CLARITY OF THIS STEREO REPRODUCTION IS MAGNIFICENT, AND EVERY NOTE IS HEARD EXACTLY AS IT WAS INTENDED
THERE IS NO BACKGROUND CRACKLE OR LOUD CLICKS THROUGH THE PLAYTHROUGH
THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO BACKGROUND STATIC AT ALL, ONLY A LITTLE EMBEDDED VINYL NOISE WHICH IS ONLY AUDIBLE IN SOME OF THE LINKING GROOVES AND MOST SILENT PASSAGES
I CAN'T EVEN SAY THAT I HEARD ANY DUST POPS THROUGH THE ENTIRE PLAYTHROUGH

A STUNNING FIST PRESS ZEPPELIN THREE AND I AM HAPPY TO GRADE THIS MINT MINUS!!!

TAKE A LISTEN AND YOU BE THE JUDGE THOUGH


THE SLEEVE
THE ICONIC ZEP III SLEEVE INSUPERB ORIGINAL CONDITION, WITH A PROPERLY WORKING 'WHEEL'
BECAUSE THIS HAS STAYED INSIDE A PLASTIC OUTER SLEEVE FROM THE DAY OF PURCHASE IT IS IN THE MOST INCREDIBLE CONDITION IMAGINABLE. JUST LIKE YOU HAVE TIME TRAVELLED AND JUST BOUGHT IT
THISORIGINAL ISSUE E.J.DAY AND COLAMINATED SLEEVE ALWAYS SEEMS TO SUFFER FROM SEVERE YELLOWING TO THE WHITE SURFACE , PARTICULARLY AROUND THE PERIMETER EDGE. HERE HOWEVER WE HAVE AN OUTSTANDING EXAMPLE, THAT IS FREE OF ANY
THE FRONT SURFACE IS BLEMISH FREE!! IT IS TOTALLY FLAT AND THERE ARE NO HEAVY CREASES OR CREASE LINES ANYWHERE. THEREARE ABSOLUTELY ZERO!! LINES NEAR THE SPINE. NONE ALONG THE TOP EDGE, NONE ALONG THE BOTTOM EDGE, AND NO THUMB LINES NEAR THE OPENING EDGE.
THE LAMINATE GLEAMS LIKE A POLISHED MIRROR, AND THERE IS NO LIFT, PEEL OR FLAKE ANYWHERE.
THE WHEEL WORKS TO PERFECTION!!!
THE FOUR CORNERS ARE PERFECTLY SHARP AND SQUARE
THE TOP AND BOTTOM ARE 100% FREE FROM ANY SHELF WEAR WHATSOEVER
THE SPINEIS IN MINT CONDITION AS WELL. FIRSTLY ALL OF THE LAMINATE IS PERFECTLY INTACT, NO PEEL OR FLAKE.IT IS TOTALLY FLAT WITHOUT ANY THUMB TO FINGER SQUASHING AT ANY POINT, AN FINALLY ALL OF THE TYPEFACE IS PERFECTLY LEGIBLE, AND IT'S ALSO WORTH POINTING OUT THAT THERE IS NO WEAR EITHER TO THE TOP OR BOTTOM TIPS OF THIS SUPERB SPINE
THE OPENING EDGE IS STILLRAZOR SHARP,AND LOOKS AS GOOD AS THE DAY IT WAS PUT TOGETHER
THE REAR SURFACE WHILST AGAIN IS UNCREASED, IT IS EVERY BIT AS BRILLIANT AS THE FRONT, AGAIN A DELIGHTFUL WHITE SURFACE WITH JUST THAT LIGHT SHADOW CLOSE TO THE EDGES. IT IS HERE THAT THIS SLEEVE ALSO HAS A HISTORY OF HAVING 'STRETCH LINES' TO THE LAMINATE. THIS ONE HAS ABSOLUTELY NONE
OPENING THE GATEFOLD REVEALS A PRISTINE PAIR OF INNER PANELS. ALL OF THE COLOURS ARE THERE AND THERE ARE NO MARKS OR STAINS ANYWHERE.GLEAMING LAMINATE. THE FACT IS THAT DUE TO THE PLASTIC OUTER SLEEVE THE SLEEVE JUST HASN'T BEEN OPENED
THE ORIGINAL INNER SLEEVE IS INCLUDED, WITH THE FLIPBACKS AND POLY LINED INTERIOR. IT IS THE CORRECT ONE FOR THIS LP AND HAS THE 0970 (SEPT 1970) IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER.
IT IS UNSPLIT AND ONLY HAS A COUPLE OF LIGHT CREASES


THE SLEEVE GRADES MINT !!! WITH EASE
GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR BID IF YOU CHOSE TO GO FOR IT
