On offer here is a VERY rare LP (especially in this condition!!!!) by
The Rolling Stones called "Let It Bleed" and is an ORIGINAL1969 UK
MONO 1st Pressing on the 1st Press UNBOXED Red MONO Decca label!!!!
THISLP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!! JUST TRY
AND FIND ANOTHER ONE!!!! THIS IS ONE OF THE RAREST & MOST SOUGHT
AFTER ROLLING STONES LPS EVER MADE - AND VIRTUALLY NEVER TURNS UP FOR
SALE!!!! BUT WHAT MAKES THIS LP REALLY SPECIAL IS THAT IT IS 1ST
PRESSED IN MEGA RARE MONO!!!! AND THIS IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ON
THIS LP!!!! BACK IN VERY LATE 1969 WHEN THIS LP WAS FIRST RELEASED,
VIRTUALLY EVERY 1ST PRESSING OF THIS LP WAS MADE IN COMMON STEREO - WITH
VIRTUALLY NONE IN MEGA RARE MONO AT ALL!!!! IN FACT, THIS WASONE OF
THE LASTLPs EVER TO BE MADE AVAILABLE IN MONO ON THE DECCA LABEL -
BEFORE DECCA ENDED ALL MONO PRODUCTION IMMEDIATELY AFTERWARDS!!!! AS A
RESULT, FINDING A1ST PRESSING OF THIS INCREDIBLE LP IN MEGA RARE MONO
IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE - AS BARELY ANY WERE EVER MADE!!!!
BUT WHAT MAKES THIS LP EVEN RARER STILL IS THAT IT IS 100% COMPLETE -
WITH ITS ORIGINAL 1ST PRESS 'COLOUR' POSTER, 1ST PRESS 'STICKERED' COVER, AND 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS UNCENSORED 'LET IT
BLEED' INNER SLEEVE!!!! AND FINDING THIS LP 100% COMPLETE IS VERY VERY
HARD INDEED - AS NEARLY ALWAYS THERE IS EITHER 1 (OR MORE!) PART OF THIS
LP MISSING!!!! BUT NOT THIS ONE!!!! ALL OF THIS LPs 'EXTRAS' ARE IN
ABSOLUTELY SUPERB CONDITION, WITH A STUNNING UNSPLIT UNCENSORED 'LET IT BLEED'
INNER SLEEVE (WITH NO REPAIRS!), AND EVEN THE ULTRA RARE & VERY
FRAGILE POSTER IS ABSOLUTELY SUPERB!!!! THIS LPs INNER SLEEVEEVEN HAS
THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS UNCENSORED 'LONDON BACH CHOIR' CREDIT ON THE INNER SLEEVE
(ON LATER COPIES - THIS WAS 'BLACKED OUT' WITH A BLACK BOX!)!!!! THIS
LP IS EXTREMELY RARE INDEED, TO FIND ABSOLUTELY 100% COMPLETE WITH ITS
ORIGINAL 'STICKERED' COVER, 'LET IT BLEED' MONO INNER SLEEVE & ULTRA
RARE 'COLOUR' POSTER - AND IS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE
THERE IS ALSO A HUGE MYTH WITH THIS LP - THAT IT ALSO CAME WITH A 'BOOKLET'!!!! WELL YOU CAN SPEND AN EXTRA £400+ ON ONE WITH THE BOOKLET, BUT THE TRUTH IS (AND THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE FACT!) - IT NEVER DID!!!! DECCA KNEW THIS LP WAS GOING TO BE THE VERY LAST 'STUDIO' ROLLING STONES LP THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO RELEASE - AND THEY DID INDEED PRODUCE A 'CATALOGUE' BOOKLET WITH A SIMILAR DESIGN ON THE FRONT. NOW OF COURSE - JUST LIKE OTHER 'PRESS RELEASE' COPIES OF THE TIME (WHICH ALSO HAD 'EXTRAS' THROWN IN - WHICH RELEASED COPIES NEVER HAD!) A TINY HANDFUL OF 'PRE-RELEASE' OR 'PRESS RELEASE' COPIES MADE PRIOR TO THE RELEASE DATE (FOR RADIO STATIONS, AND PROMOTERS) DID HAVE THE BOOKLET INSIDE - AS THIS WOULD OBVIOUSLY BENEFIT DECCA. BUT ALL THESE COPIES WOULD HAVE 1A/1A MATRIXES OR INDEED BE 'FACTORY TEST PRESSINGS'. THE TRUTH ABOUT THESE 'BOOKLETS' WAS SIMPLY THAT THEY WERE MADE FOR RECORD SHOPS - AND THEY WERE ACTUALLY FREE TO TAKE FROM RECORD SHOP COUNTERS, AND WERE NEVER PUT INSIDE THE LP ITSELF!!!! IT IS A BIT LIKE THE INFAMOUS 'APPLE POSTERS' - WHICH HAVE LONG BEEN PUT WITH 'LET IT BE' BOX SETS, BUT IN TRUTH - THEY WERE FOUND IN ANY BEATLES LP IN LATE 1969/EARLY 1970. AND OF COURSE, THE PROOF OF THIS, IS ACTUALLY ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE COVER!!!! WHAT RECORD COMPANY IN HISTORY WOULD MISS A CHANCE TO PRINT 'FREE BOOKLET' ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE COVER???? BUT IT DOESNT SAY THAT AT ALL - IT IS SAYS 'FREE COLOUR ROLLING STONES POSTER INCLUDED' ON THE STICKER ON THE COVER FRONT!!!! OVER THE YEARS - I HAVE FOUND AT LEAST 10 BOOKLETS. AND AT LEAST 6 OWNERS REMEMBERED PICKING THEM UP OFF THE SHOP COUNTER AT THE TIME. I HAVE EVEN FOUND 2 INSIDE 'GET YER YA YAS OUT' ASWELL - WHEN THOSE OWNERS DIDNT EVEN HAVE A 'LET IT BLEED' LP!!!! SO YES THE BOOKLET IS VERY RARE INDEED, AND YES IT IS DESIRABLE ADDITION TO ANYONE'S COLLECTION, AND YES INDEED (AS YOU WOULD EXPECT!) IT HAS A LET IT BLEED DESIGN ON THE COVER FRONT - AS THAT WAS THE LATEST LP OUT FROM THE ROLLING STONES!!!! BUT IT WAS NEVER AVAILABLE INSIDE RELEASED COPIES OF THIS LP - AND THAT IS THE ABSOLUTE FACT!!!! AND THIS ALSO WHY YOU QUITE SEE THESE 'BOOKLETS' BEING SOLD BY THEMSELVES FAIRLY REGULARLY - AS THE OWNERS PICKED UP THE FREE BOOKLET - BUT NEVER HAD THE LP IT WAS 'SUPPOSED' TO HAVE COME WITH!!!! OF COURSE, THIS SOUNDS LIKE A BIT OF RANT - BUT IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THIS FACT (AS THE PROOF HAS ALWAYS BEEN THERE ON THE COVER FRONT!), AND WILL ALSO STOP ANY 'DOES THIS LP HAS A BOOKLET' EMAILS!!!! BECAUSE APART FROM ANY 'PRE-RELEASE' PROMOTIONAL COPIES SENT OUT TO RADIO STATIONS PRIOR TO THE RELEASE DATE - THIS LP NEVER CAME WITH ANY BOOKLET AT ALL!!!!
IT IS ALSO WORTH NOTING THAT THIS LP COMES WITH THE EXTREMELY RARE 1ST PRESS 'MATT' POSTER!!!! THERE WERE A FEW 1ST PRESS VARIATIONS ON THE POSTER - SOME BEING 'MATT' AND SOME BEING 'SHINY' OR 'GLOSSY' IN APPEARANCE (ON EITHER THE FRONT ONLY - OR FRONT & BACK)!!!! I HAVE PREVIOUSLY FOUND BOTH TYPES IN 1ST PRESSINGS - SO IT SEEMS LIKELY BOTH WERE MADE AT THE SAME TIME. HOWEVER - WHILST THE 'SHINY' OR 'GLOSSY' POSTERS WERE MADE THROUGHOUT THE 1ST PRESSING RUN - AND INDEED RIGHT THROUGH UNTIL THE EARLY 1970s, THE ULTRA RARE 'MATT' 1ST PRESS POSTERS ONLY EVER APPEARED IN THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSINGS ONLY, AND WERE CLEARLY DROPPED ALMOST IMMEDIATELY!!!! THEREFORE THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT AT ALL - THAT THE ULTRA RARE 'MATT' 1ST PRESS POSTERS ARE AT LEAST 10 TIMES RARER THAN THE 'SHINY' OR 'GLOSSY' VERSIONS, AND ONLY EVER APPEARED IN THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSINGS ONLY!!!!
NOT ONLY THAT BUT THIS LP IS IN BRILLIANT CONDITION - AND HAS BARELY BEEN PLAYED AT ALL!!!! AND THE POSTER IS ALSO IN BRILLIANT CONDITION (AND HAS CLEARLY NEVER BEEN HUNG ON A WALL!), AND THE UNCENSORED 'LET IT BLEED' INNER SLEEVE IS COMPLETELY UNSPLIT, WITH NO REPAIRS EITHER!!!! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURES!!!!

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!
