Item Description

My clearout continues!
I'm now clearing our a batch of classic rock and prog LPs that I bought in a collection a few years back, a pretty complete collection but I don't really need to keep all the titles. Watch this space for more titles.......
you're bidding for:
RED DIRT - Red Dirt UK vinyl LP VG/VG+ Fontana STL 5540 1970

cat: STL 5540 matrix: 886 788 1Y // 1 V 420 1 886 788 2Y // 1 420 1

Such an ultra rare LP these days, so few seem to crop up, my copy has a few issues listed below but on the whole is a solid playable copy

Vinyl grades as VG visually with light marks on both sides but nothing really heavy. The first side plays through really nicely with light crackle before the intro and then just a couple of light clicks and pops on a couple of tracks but nothing that overpowers the music, on the whole the play grade on side 1 is far closer to VG+. Side 2 is also VG visually with light marks and hairlines and again the crackle fades out as the music starts. Again there's there's a few pops but for the most part it plays through at VG+ although on the quieter track 2 the pops are a little more noticeable. The only feel-able mark is a small scratch on track 4 which causes clicks for approx 30 secs of the track, it doesn't skip but there are consistent clicks. As a whole i grade the vinyl as VG.
The laminated sleeve is in solid condition, fully intact with a clean spine and only a couple of light corner rubs. There's no seam splits and there's no writing anywhere on the sleeve. There are a few creases visible when held to the light and also light ring wear but nothing major. Both labels are VG+ with moderate spindle wear but again no writing anywhere on either label.

Due the the high value this will be securely packed in bubble warp and cruciform packaging then again in a larger box with more packaging and stiffeners to ensure safe arrival.
Any questions, please ask.Good luck bidding!
