Item Description

This truly NEAR MINT UK 2nd MONO pressing dates from late-1965 on the black & yellow Parlophone label: PMC 1267

The labels have the 'Sold in UK...' text and a 'KT' purchase tax code on the centre of the side 1.

Matrix numbers: XEX 579-4 & YEX 580-4

Stamper codes: 4/GHG & 4/GOT

Vinyl weight: 163g

Housed in a front laminated, tri-flipback, 'Garrod & Lofthouse' printed mono cover, with original rice-paper lined inner-sleeve.




A perfectly clean set with a single spidery spindle trail around each centre hole.


A quality heavy disc with immaculate factory-fresh deep-gloss playing surfaces which apart from a few faint marks from inner-sleeve storage are flawless.

Sound Quality: NEAR MINT

Played just ONCE by its original owner, everything here sounds superb. Our careful pay-check at volume found no noticeable audible flaws with even the delicate and most easily worn track, 'Michelle', playing perfectly.


An exceptional example of this outstanding cover which has been impeccably stored in a non-smoking environment since purchase.

The font panel is totally unscratched and unworn & retains an immaculate high-gloss laminate with just a single tiny 'thumbnail' wrinkle.

All corners are sharp & square and both opening edges are immaculate.

The exposed rear panel is flawless & 'as new'.

Along the upper flipback, there are three small wrinkles and the impression of a number '27' which is only visible at an angle.

The spine is in perfectly clean & unworn as are both seams.

Inner-sleeve: NEAR MINT
