Original UK pressing. Original blue 'Morgan Blue Town' labels, 1st matrixes, flip-back textured sleeve.
Very rare, almost never found in this nearly pristine condition. One of the heaviest heavyweight UK prog rarities out there and a very clean example of the vinyl, plays wonderfully throughout and with no distortion or wear, because there IS no wear. There are tiny pieces of crackle in the intros to both sides but that's in the pressing, not any kind of damage.. After those, there is nothing but beautiful sound, and for once in the crazy world of prog-rock, really exceptionally good music. It's not just desirable for its rarity, the actual material is top notch.
So hard to find, last year it appears only three copies surfaced on eBay worldwide so you get the point, this one is rare. It's been reissued but to quote one of the reviews of that reissue "...such a lovely album ruined by incompetent remastering". So avoid that. Serious collectors will already know that original means best.
The sleeve is the original flip-back variety that was phased out at almost the same time this LP was pressed, made by Garrod & Lofthouse and using unlaminated, thin, textured card so it was very easy to damage... this one is not mint but is otherwise undamaged, no rips, tears or anything missing, just a little fading with age (don't we all!) and a little ring-impression where the LP sits in the sleeve, not ring wear, mind you. A very small amount of handling but otherwise a peachy example.
The inner sleeve is the correct soft-lined original, although we have cleaned and replaced the LP in a new sleeve for its protection.
Don't sleep! Another one like this won't come around any time soon..

Star Ratings:
This is more than just an add-on, it's a method to enforce sellers to trade to eBay standards. Buyers can give sellers marks for 'item as described', 'shipping time', 'shipping cost' and 'communication'.
VERY IMPORTANT Sellers are required to maintain an average of over 4.5 stars for each category. This means that anything less than a 5 star rating actually counts against the seller (though you may not have meant it to). This is not made clear to buyers so that's why we're telling you now.
Shipping cost: Our prices are clearly marked on the table above and you should not have any complaint about that after the sale.
Item As Described: We try our best to make our descriptions accurate but mistakes can happen. We GUARANTEE our items, so if you have any problem we will refund you.
Shipping time: We try to ship on the next available posting day but we are a busy shop and this can't always happen. We will let you know if there is any significant delay. Please take into consideration any public holidays, etc.
Communication: We try to respond immediately but we are a busy shop. The eBay part of our business is conducted OUTSIDE shop hours therefore some communication may be delayed. Please take this into consideration when asking a question or when leaving a rating.
We would consider it rude if you go straight to eBay or Paypal before contacting us. Remember eBay are not selling you this item; WE ARE! Any refunds or claims for damage will have to come from our pockets. If for ANY reason you are unhappy with our service, or if anything goes wrong, please contact us first and we will try to solve the problem together. We're here to help you. We want to keep you happy so please contact us with any questions at any time.
Thanks to all our customers! We love you.
