Item Description

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!!!!

BUT WHAT MAKES THIS LP EVEN RARER STILL IS THAT IT IS 100% COMPLETE - WITH ITS ORIGINAL 'COLOUR' POSTER, 'STICKERED' COVER, AND '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 BRILLIANT CONDITION, WITH A VERY NICE UNSPLIT '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 '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 THIS!!!!

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 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 AT THE TIME!!!! BUT IT WAS NEVER AVAILABLE INSIDE RELEASED COPIES OF THIS LP - AND THAT IS THE ABSOLUTE FACT!!!! AND THIS ALSO WHY YOU QUITE OFTEN 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!!!!

THIS LP IS MADE EVER RARER STILL - AS IT IS QUITE LITERALLY THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE, WITH ULTRA RARE 1A/1A MATRIX ENDINGS (SEE PICTURES!) WHICH ONLY LASTED AN ABSOLUTELY TINY AMOUNT OF TIME ONLY - AND WERE IMMEDIATELY CHANGED!!!! THIS LP EVEN HAS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 'UPTON PRINTING GROUP' LAMINATED COVER (MUCH THICKER & BETTER QUALITY THAN LATER COVERS!) - AND 'UPTON' ONLY EVER MADE THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS COVERS ONLY, BEFORE THEY TOO WERE IMMEDIATELY CHANGED!!!! BARELY ANY COPIES EXIST WITH THESE ULTRA RARE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 1A/1A MATRIXES TODAY, AND THEY ARE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!!

NOT ONLY THAT BUT THIS LP IS IN BRILLIANT CONDITION!!!! THE POSTER DOESNT EVEN LOOK TO HAVE EVER LEFT THE COVER, AND THE 'LET IT BLEED' INNER SLEEVE IS COMPLETELY UNSPLIT, AND IN BRILLIANT CONDITION!!!! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURES!!!! THIS IS THE ORIGINAL 1969UKMONO 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING ON THE 'EARLIEST'1ST PRESS UNBOXED RED MONO DECCA LABEL, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 1A/1A MATRIX ENDINGS, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS RED MONO 'LET IT BLEED' INNER SLEEVE, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 'LONDON BACH CHOIR' CREDIT ON THE INNER SLEEVE, ULTRA RARE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 'COLOUR' POSTER, AND 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 'UPTON' LAMINATED 'STICKERED' COVER!!!!THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS - SO DONT MISS OUT ON THIS AMAZING OPPORTUNITY!!!!

The record labels are in SUPERB condition (see pictures) with NO writing, only VERY minor 'texturisation', NO wear, and only a VERY few light spindle marks!!!! IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT THIS RECORD HASNT BEEN PLAYED MUCH AT ALL!!!! The vinyl is in GREAT condition!!!! Most of these 60s 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 nasty concentric marks AT ALL, only 1 TINY surface mark, only 2 or 3 small hairlines, only 3 or 4 VERY light scufflines, and only a VERY few of thelightest paper scuffs only visible under light!!!! THE RECORD STILL RETAINS ITS ORIGINAL 'JUST PRESSED' LOOK AND SHINES LIKE NEW!!!! It is great to find that the record plays as STUNNINGLY as the visual withNO skips, only a few VERY light clicks (though mostly NONE!),NO sticking, NO jumps, barely ANY crackle AT ALL, and only some VERY slight background sound on the run on grooves & gaps - NOT in the music AT ALL!!!! The sound quality is simply SUPERB with NO distortion and NO groovewear either!!!! The record must grade Very Good+ if not better!!!! 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 ULTRA RARE Poster is in SUPERB condition - with NO rips, NO tears,NO wear, NO writing, NO foxing, NO tack marks, and NO pinholes - clearly showing that it has NEVER been mounted on a wall!!!! I have even taken a picture of the poster back - so clearly show it is as SUPERB as the poster front!!!! AN ABSOLUTELY SUPERB POSTER - AND HAS CLEARLY NEVER LEFT THE COVER!!!! The ORIGINAL 'Earliest' 1st Press 'Upton' Laminated 'Stickered' Cover is in BRILLIANT condition!!!! The coverhas NO edge wear, barely ANY spinal wear AT ALL (PERFECT side words!), only VERY slight corner wear, NO rips, NO tears, VERY shinylaminate, only a few VERY light creases (cover is VERYflat looking!), NO annotations, and NO writing!!!! The opening edge is beautifully straight with barely ANY feathering AT ALL!!!!

PLEASE NOTE - Private feedback bidders must consult me first prior to bidding - due to previous problems regarding non-payment, and non-receipt.


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!
