PHILIPS LABEL, 1ST PRESS 1Y//2 & 2Y//2 MATRIX ENDINGS, 1ST PRESS INNER SLEEVE,AND 1STPRESS GATEFOLD COVER!!!!
THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO LOCATE - SO DONT
MISS THIS INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY!!!! This isthe ORIGINAL Philips UK
1st Pressing from 1969 and is SERIOUSLY rare in EVERY respect!!!! The
record is pressed on THICK quality vinyl. The Cat. No isSBL 7912 on the
ORIGINAL 1st Press Philips label (see picture) and is a UK Stereo 1st
Pressing (there were NO Monos)!!!!
The record labels are in GREAT condition (see pictures) with NO
wear, NO writing and some spindle marks to either side!!!! The vinyl is still VERY bright and shiny looking indeed!!!! And under normal room conditions - 90% of the record has a
SUPERB glossy shine, with only a very VERY few VERYlight linesbarely
visible!!!! It also plays VERY well indeed generally (I just played it end to end
just now!)!!!! However it is only when you study this record under
VERY bright light - that you can see a few VERY light hairlines,
and 2 or 3 small surface marks (NON sounding!)!!!! Though generally 90% of this record still looks VERY nice indeed!!!! However, the main detail to note on this record - is that there is a small mark at the VERY beginning of Side 1, and a visible scuffline here also. Though thankfully the scuffline is almost ALL completely superficial and doesnt sound AT ALL!!!! The mark however does - and I will detail that below. And as always, I will be MEGA STRICT
with my grading!!!! THE RECORD STILL RETAINS ITS ORIGINAL 'JUST
PRESSED' LOOK - AND IS VERY BRIGHT & SHINY LOOKING INDEED!!!! Apart from the mark mentioned above (which I will detail below), the record plays with NO skips, only a
few VERY light clicks (though mostly NONE!), NO jumps, NO
sticks,barely ANY crackle AT ALL, and only some slight background
sound on the run on grooves & gaps - NOT in the music AT ALL!!!!
The exception to this is the small visible mark mentioned above - which does cause some clear pops at the beginning of the first track on Side 1 and lasts gradually fading for 1 third of the track. Now on my system THERE ARE NO JUMPS, NO STICKS AND NO SKIPS AT ALL. And that is geniunely the case. However, systems are different and there is no possible way for me to guarantee this on any other system - so bear this in mind. But on my system it plays through fine, with NO jumps AT ALL. And the rest of the LP (from about 1 third of the first track in) plays BRILLIANTLY - with barely ANY clicks AT ALL!!!! And the sound quality is simply SUPERB with NO groovewear and NO distortion
either!!!! And even though most of the record looks FAR better than this, I will only MEGA STRICTLY visually grade Fair (PROPERLY
graded, NOT trashed!)if not better, to avoid any disappointment, or any complications. I been very VERY clear on this record. 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 record also comes in its
ORIGINAL 1st Pressinner sleeve which is in BRILLIANT condition!!!! The
ORIGINAL 1st Press Gatefold Cover is in GREAT condition overall - and
still VERY solid and presentable!!!! It has NO annotations, some clear evidence of 'touching in' the edges & spine (especially the top edge), NO stickers, only 1 TINY 'touched in' wear mark (this is VERY small indeed!), some corner wear, only a VERY few light creases(cover is VERY flat looking indeed!),
only some very VERY slight rubbing (MILES better than most!), NO
ringwear, and NO
writing!!!! The opening edges are beautifully straight with barely ANY feathering AT ALL!!!! Even theinside of the cover is in GREAT condition with
NO yellowing, NO grubbyness, only VERY slight rubbing,and NO
writing!!!! The cover must grade Good+ (PROPERLY graded, NOT
trashed!)if not better - and is still a VERY solid and VERY
presentable example indeed!!!! THIS LP MAY NOT BE 100% PERFECT (THOUGH
IT IS STILL VERY PRESENTABLE AND GENERALLLY PLAYS VERY WELL INDEED!) - BUT IT IS OF THE
UTMOST RARITY AND ALMOST NEVER SEEN!!!! SO THIS IS CERTAINLY AN
AMAZINGLY RARE CHANCE FOR SOMEONE TO OWN THIS INCREDIBLE LP AT A CHEAPER
PRICE THAN THE HUGE FORTUNE REQUIRED TO OWN A MINT COPY!!!! THIS LP IS
SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO LOCATE - SO DONT MISS OUT ON
THIS INCREDIBLE OPPRTUNITY!!!!

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!
