UP FOR AUCTION HERE IS A TRULY SUPERB EXAMPLE OF THE STONES DEBUT LP. PLAYED NO MORE THAN 2-3 TIMES EVER.
THE LABELS
THE DARKRED AND SILVERUNBOXEDLABELS ARE INMAGNIFICENT CONDITION. NO STAINS OR HANDLING MARKS. THE DEEP RICH COLOUR STRETCHES FULLY INTO THE UNWORN SPINDLE HOLE. THE SILVER TYPEFACE AND LOGOS ARE ALL UNRUBBED AND PERFECTLY LEGIBLE. THERE ARE JUST 3-4 MINUSCULE SPIDER LINES CLOSE TO THE SPINDLE HOLE SHOWING THAT THE VINYL HAS HAD JUST A FEW CAREFUL PLAYS IN THE 54 YEARS IT HAS BEEN IN EXISTENCE
THE VINYL
THIS HEAVYWEIGHT VINYL IS IN SUPERB CONDITION, REALLY GLOSSY AND NOT DULL LIKE MOST WORN OUT COPIES. IN DAY LIGHT THE DISC LOOKS FLAWLESS
EVEN WHEN PLACED UNDER INTENSE ILLUMINATION I DON'T SEE ANY WISPY LINES AT ALL. A PRISTINE DISC IN EVERY WAY
PLAYING THE RECORD
I BELIEVE THAT IF YOU ARE GOING TO SPEND YOUR MONEY ON A FANTASTIC COLLECTIBLE VINYL, THAT YOU SHOULD BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR WHAT YOU ARE BUYING. I HAVE THEREFORE INVESTED IN THE SOFTWARE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO DO JUST THAT.
I HAVE RECORDEDTHE ENTIRE ALBUM FROM START TO FINISH AS I AM DOING WITH ALL MY LISTINGS, AS I AM CONVINCED THAT BIDDERS WILL LOVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE ABLE TO HEAR THE RECORD BEFORE LAYING A BID. THIS IS A SERVICE I AM DELIGHTED TO BE ABLE TO OFFER MY CUSTOMERS
THE RECORD PLAYS AS NEW ALL THE WAY THROUGH BOTH SIDES WITHOUT DISTORTION WHATSOEVER, MEANING THAT THE FEW PLAYS THE LP HAS RECEIVED WAS COMPLETED ON A SYSTEM THAT HAD A CORRECTLY WEIGHTED STYLUS ANDALSO UNWORN .
PLEASE PLAY THE SOUNDBITES AND THEN YOU WILL TRULY APPRECIATE JUST HOW MAGNIFICENT THIS 1964 RECORDING TRULY IS. i have recorded it as it was intended in MONO
FIRSTLY THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO EMBEDDED VINYL NOISE
YOU WILL NOT HEAR ANY CLICKS OR LOUD POPS ANYWHERE THROUGH THE PLAY THROUGH, SHOWING ONCE AGAIN JUST HOW SPECIAL THIS ALBUM IS
YOU WILL HEAR A LITTLE STATIC LIKE BACKGROUND ON OCCASION ONLY IN SOME OF THE LINKING GROOVES
THERE ARE NO MORE THAN ONE TINY STATIC TIC ALSO THROUGH THE ENTIRE PLAYTHROUGH
WITH ALL THINGS CONSIDERED AND TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE STUNNING CONDITION OF THIS ALBUM I AM GOING TO GRADE THIS PLAYTHROUGH AS MINT MINUS
DON'T JUST TAKE MY WORD FOR IT THOUGH, PLAY ALL OF THE SOUNDBITES AND JUDGE IT AGAINST YOUR OWN PERSONAL STANDARDS
THE SLEEVE
RARE FLIPBACK MACNEILL PRESS ISSUE OF THIS SLEEVE. LAMINATED FRONT AND NON LAMINATED REAR
I HAVEOFTEN MENTIONED JUST HOW THIN THESE EARLY STONES ALBUM SLEEVES ARE. WHEN YOU CONSIDER THE QUALITY SLEEVES THAT THE BEATLES ALBUMS CAME IN IT, MAKE YOU WONDER WHY THEY DECIDED TO PUT WHAT WOULD BE VERY POPULAR RECORDS IN SLEEVES THAT COULDN'T HANDLE THE CONSTANT REMOVAL AND INSERTION OF THE VINYL
THE FRONT SURFACE WHICH IS USUALLY FOUND CREASED ALL OVER, ON THIS COPY IS IN TOP CONDITION. THE FRONT SURFACE GLEAMS LIKE A POLISHED MIRROR, THERE ARE SOME LIGHT LAMINATE LINES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE COVER. NO FOLDS OR BENDS, AND EVEN THE SMALL LAMINATE LINES NEAR THE SPINE ARE RESTRICTED TO JUSTFOUR , INCREDIBLY THIS SLEEVE HAS NO LAMINATE LIFT, PEEL OR FLAKE LIKE YOU WILL FIND ON MOST EXAMPLES
ZERO LAMINATE LINES ON THE TOP EDGE, NONE ALONG THE BOTTOM, AND FIVE THUMB LINES NEAR THE OPENING EDGE
THE FOUR CORNERS ARE SHARP AND SQUARE
THE TOP EDGE IS FREE FROM ANY SHELF WEAR WHATSOEVER,WITH THE LAMINATE PERFECT ALL THE WAY FROM CORNER TO CORNER,AND THE BOTTOM EDGE IS IDENTICAL. BOTH HAVE ULTRA SMOOTH SURFACES TO THE TOUCH AND A JUST A PIN PRICK OF RUB TO THE CORNER TIP ENDS
THE SPINE IS ONCE AGAIN FULLY LAMINATED, NO PEEL OR FLAKE, THE TAPERED ENDS ARE PERFECT AND UNRUBBED. THE TYPEFACE IS PRISTINE AND UNBLEMISHED. THE WHITE SURFACE IS STILL PERFECTLY WHITE
THE OPENING EDGE IS RAZOR SHARP WITH A TINY THUMB NAIL NICK ON THE FRONT EDGE IN THE MIDDLE
THE REAR SURFACE HAS PERFECTLY ADHERED FLIPBACKS AND A WHITE SURFACE THAT HAS STOOD THE TEST OF TIME SUPERBLY WITH VIRTUALLY NO AGE RELATED MARKS WHATSOEVER . A TINY SLIVER ON THE OPENING EDGE
THERE IS NO RING WEAR
THE ORIGINAL POLY LINED INNER SLEEVE IS INCLUDED AND IS IN OK CONDITION. NO SEAM SPLITS, ONE TINY HOLE ON THE POLY WINDOW ON THE REA AND A SMALL NICK TO THE FRONT DIE CUT. TWO CORNER CREASES AND SOME AGEING TO THE WHITE
I AM VERY HAPPY TO GRADE THIS SLEEVE NEAR MINT
GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR BID IF YOU CHOSE TO GO FOR IT
