Item Description

An incredibly rare UK mono VERY FIRST ISSUE of this iconic LP (Columbia SX 6157), with the 'grey' rear cover and the blue 'note' emblem on the label, and without the "file under' info on the top right of the flipback! Truly a holy grail for Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett fans!
The flipback sleeve has minor corner / edge wear and creasing, and there's minor discolouration and a couple of small stains on the reverse – it's actually really nice, grading a VERY conservative VG+ (anyone else's VG++!). The heavyweight album has very feint marks from being pulled in and out of the original, unlined inner sleeve (which has been retained and will be supplied with the album, although the vinyl is housed in a nice, properly-lined modern inner bag!), so it grades visually a conservative VG+ to VG++. However, performing an A-B test with another UK first press mono copy that's only VG to VG+ reveals that this copy is a much, much finer listening experience, making it a solid VG++ to EX, with negligable background noise and a full-spectrum sound that's INCREDIBLE! No bull, this is a lovely copy of an amazing album! Priced accordingly...
Please note: All 45s will be shipped in original company sleeves, where available, or a brand new white paper sleeve. The 'price stickers' seen in any photos will be professionally removed before shipping. Likewise, all records will be cleaned using a professional machine prior to dispatch. We ship in proper 7" mailers and 12" 'cruciform' boxes, both with stiffeners, which provide excellent protection.
Visit our record shop "Resolution Records" in central Bath (Somerset, UK) BA1 1JB. Some AMAZING stuff on offer with many different genres available. 5000+ records. Expert staff, competitive prices. Bath's one and only 'real' record shop.
