Hi, and welcome to psych_out! auctions!!!
I've collected50's, 60's, and early 70's records of almost every genre -Psych, Prog, Psychedelic Funk, Soul,Rhythm 'n' Blues, Pop, Folk, Garage, Acid, Freakbeat, Rock, Jazz e.t.c and everything in between for all my life!!!Obviously, 90% of the LP's I've ever gotten hold of are completelytrashed from the hard living ways and the rock 'n' roll, drug and booze fuelled debauchery of all the wild parties of the times, but the golden 10%? Reluctantly, I've decided tooffer themto all of you serious record collectors out there!!! I'm currently trying to set up a record label so unfortunately personal sacrifices have to be made when it comes to my collection, resulting in GREAT benefits for all you shrewd bidders and serious connosieurs of TRUE solid goldmusic history out there!!!Make no mistake, I'lltry my best to consistently offer some of theVERY BESTrecords available on ebay, many which have taken me YEARS to find!!!
I aim to put a weekly batch up (time permitting) every Wednesday, all timed to end 10 days later on Saturday night. I'll only everofferTHE BEST, MOST AMAZING,MOST IMPORTANT,VERYRAREST UK 1ST PRESSORIGINAL RELEASE RECORDSI've got!!! I won't insult you with later 2ndpressings unless they are of exceptional quality and rarity. I'm sure you love good music as much as me, especially when it's a 1st Press LP,direct from the master tape, as the musicians intended it to be heard (none of this "digitally remastered",weak reissued,remixedrubbish from hired hands with one eye on the mixing desk and the other on the clock! If these sessionmen really knew how genius should sound, surely they would've been geniuses themselves?! There will only ever be one Hendrix, and that's just a tiny example).

Now, I can't stress enough how amazing this Mono mix truly is. Overseen by and mixed withHendrix, you simply haven't heard this LP unless you've heard it like this!!! One Rainy Wish in it's Mono mix is a COMPLETELY different beast to any other you may of heard, and as for Castles Made Of Sand? FORGET any other version!!! It fades in PHENOMENALLY, and the outro has an utterly OUTRAGEOUS shimmer NOT in any other mix out there!!! That's just two examples of this magnificent mix - I truly believe that this album in it's mono form is the closest we can ever get to hearing the sound inside Hendrix's head!!!
Just like any of the Hendrix experiencealbums, this is one of THE BEST LP'sof all time containing some of THE GREATEST music EVER recorded!!! I love this album. It's got a unique sort of taste, feel, and atmosphere. It's certainly the most psychedelic thing The Experience ever did, rightfrom the phenomenal music to the INCREDIBLE cover artwork! This LP is a masterpiece, and absolutely LOADED with classics - you've only got to look at the tracklist! It feels really relaxed and easy going, as if Hendrix was satisfied with proving himself to the world with "Are You Experienced",and felt it was time to do what he really wanted to do. There's not too much out and out blues on here, it's more experimental such as the Jazzy "Up From The Skies",the truly psychedelic "One Rainy Wish",the Dylan-esque classic "Castles Made Of Sand",the hilarious "Wait Until Tomorrow",the delicate "Little Wing" and "Bold As Love",and his trademark freak out track! On Are You Experienced, it was "Third Stone From The Sun". On Electric Ladyland, it was "1983 (A Merman I Shall Turn To Be)". On this, it's the PHENOMENAL "If Six Was Nine"!!!
I can't believe how amazing this LP is, every track is trulyoutstanding. Probably my favourite Hendrix LP (though I couldn't live without any of them). Even Noel Redding's "She's So Fine" is suprisinglyexcellent psych-pop! Iteasily sitsin the top 10 greatest albums of all time, and there it shall remain until the world blows up!!!
Until that moment? Well, we should alllisten to his records and be thankful that Jimi Hendrix was born!!!

About : Ultra RareOriginal 1967 UK 1st Press!!! ThisMASSIVELY RARELPinitially sold barely anything (LP's were also really expensive to most people back then!!!) and thereforehad a verysmall run, and isINCREDIBLY HARD TO FIND, especially in this condition!!! AN absoluteclassic LP from this incredible band!!!Anastonishing album that really DESERVES to be in EVERY serious60's / 70's record collection!!! Don't miss out on thisMEGA RARE LP!!! If you like good music, bid now!!!
The LP :
Classic UK TEXTURED black Track 1st Press labels!!!Both sides are OUTSTANDING with NO real signs of age, NO graffiti, and NO writing OR tears whatsoever!!! Just has a small amount of ultra light spindle marks which suggests that this has barely had much play at all!!! FANTASTIC for a 49 year old record!!! Both must grade overall at least as Excellent+!!!
Spectacular Original 1967 UK 1st Press Vinyl!!! Nice bright, clean and shiny as if it was just pressed!!! Fantastic jet black mirror like surfaces, it looks GREAT with NO really nasty scratches, groovewear, or nasty deep scuffs whatsoever!!! The only blemishes are just some light wispy sleeve traces, a few mild hairlines and age marks, and just a small amount of cosmetic non-sounding and unfeelable scuffs (only visible in direct angled light) mostly caused from where it has sat or been removed from it's cover over the years!!! Of course, none of these ULTRA light blemishes really interfere with play AT ALL thanks to the deeply pressed quality!!! BRILLIANT for a record of this age and rarity!!! Must grade overall at least as Very Good++!!! (graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not overgraded AT ALL!!! Customer satisfaction is of 100% importance to me)
Record : Audio-
Thankfully, it plays BRILLIANTLY with fantastic mono blast and clarity!!! It really sounds incredible with NO hisses, hops, distortion, sticks OR skips!!! Only like pretty much ALL records has just a mere touch of the lightest crackle here and there, only a few of the lightest ticks here and there on rare occasions, and a hint of low level ultra light "bluesman's fag" atmospheric static in few and far between places such as on some of the quieter sections like the run in grooves and between some tracks e.t.c, but it TRULY doesn't overshadow the music AT ALL!!! I'd even argue it gives it added soul!!! And that's truly about it!!! The vast, vast majority of the music is ultra clear and sounds ABSOLUTELY AWESOME with that bass, depth, warmth and clarity you can only get from 1st Press UK vinyl!!! An outstanding listen! Absolutely ESSENTIAL!! ASTONISHING for a record of this age and rarity!!! Must grade overall audibly at the very least as Exceelent minus!!! (graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not trashed or overgraded AT ALL!!! Customer satisfaction is of 100% importance to me)
OriginalUK 1967 1st Press laminated flipback gatefoldE.J Day sleeve complete with original inner and PHENOMENALLY RARE ORIGINAL LYRIC INSERT POSTER (FANTASTIC, ultra clean and as vibrant aseverwith NO pin holes, NO tears, and NO writing OR graffiti whatsoever -just has an incredibly mild ultra light fold crease at the top of the centre and only some ultra minor general light handling signs to show of it's near five decades!!! INCREDIBLE)!!!IMPOSSIBLE to find this sleeve in anything approaching a good condition - most are spent, torn and worn due to age and the lifestyles of the buyers of this particular LP!!! This one is NOT, and looks FANTASTIC, especially considering the nature of these fragile sleeves!!! NO tears, NO writing OR graffiti, NO dulling, NO bad marks AT ALL, NO seam splits, and still ULTRA strong and solid after all these years!!! Only has a small amount of ultra mild signs of ageing such as a small amount of ultra light edge creases and the merest ghost of a record imprint, some minor touches of the slightest general ultra light surface glazing here and there from where it has sat between sleeves over the years (barely anything at all) and only some minor remains of a sticker to the bottom right corner of the otherwise unbelievably unaged unlaminated inside (the only thing which stops me grading this even higher - absolutely NO coffee cup stains, grubbiness, ink rubbing, writing OR graffiti whatsoever!!!), a slight touch of denting to the four corners which basically ALL vintage LP's have, and POSSIBLY (just to be sure!!!) one or two other minor signs of age here and there, though nothing that really stands out to note at all!!! And that's truly about it!!! I tend to bring it down by listing the most minor negatives I can possibly find, but this remains an AWESOME sleeve, and a TRUE rarity to find one as incredible as this - most have been virtually destroyed or are just about being held together, but not this one!!! The iconic psychedelic artwork is as vibrant as the day it was pressed and looks simply AMAZING!!! It remains ultra strong, solid, unsplit and unspoilt, and even the spine remains ultra strong, solid, 100% unworn and unsplit!!! Must grade overall at the very least as Excellent minus!!! (graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not trashed or overgraded AT ALL!!! Customer satisfaction is of 100% importance to me)
Summary :An OUTSTANDING100% complete earliest ever TEXTURED exampleof this IMPOSSIBLY RARE pioneering psych classic UK 1st Press LP!!! Hard to find in ANY condition, but simply IMPOSSIBLY RARE TO FIND ONE 100% COMPLETE AND AS TRULY MAGNIFICENT AS THIS!!! YOU MAYNEVERGET THE CHANCE AGAIN, so don't miss out on this scarce opportunity to own a true piece of 60's/70's music history!!! Bid now!!!

I've realized that most countries have their own unique grading system. I base mine strictly on the UK RRPG grading system (occasionally with a + or a - to indicate the higher and lower ends of the grade, though I only use these if i'm having real trouble deciding!), so please check their chart for further clarity if you are unsure of what my grades mean. As a general rule, a mint record will be 100% perfect, an excellent record will be in fantastic clean condition with the occasional mild mark and minor use fromthe years, and a very good record will have noticeable, yet light visual markings and obvious signs of age and use, but will still remain clean with relatively light wearand willplay fantastically wellwith plenty of life remaining in it. I very rarely offer records below the very good region unless they are of an EXCEPTIONAL rarity and playing quality...I hope this helps!
