A WORD ON AUSTRALIAN ROLLING STONES 1ST PRESSINGS
Australian Rolling Stones LPs are far FAR rarer than their UK counterparts, and are very sought after indeed - due to different cover designs, different tracklistings, and even some LPs that were never used in the UK. However, what makes them truly rare is finding them in TOP CONDITION. They were made from thin covers, and only had a plastic inner to protect the records. Not only that, but sales were very VERY low indeed compared to UK pressings, so there are far FAR less to find. And this means that the chances of finding one in TOP CONDITION is significantly harder!!!! AND THIS LP IS INCREDIBLY IN AMAZING CONDITION - AND IS EASILY THE BEST CONDITIONED AUSTRALIAN 1ST PRESSING OF THIS LP THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN!!!! This is just one LP from a small Rolling Stones Australian collection I found, which are all truly in AWESOME condition!!!! They were ALWAYS kept in a plastic sleeves since the day they were bought, and were barely played AT ALL!!!! SO MADE NO MISTAKE - FINDING AN AUSTRALIAN 1ST PRESSING OF THIS LP IN THIS AMAZING CONDITION, IS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE - AND IS AT LEAST 50 TIMES RARER THAN ANY UK 1ST PRESSING!!!! So please read on about this AMAZING LP below:-

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!
