Item Description

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).

I try tobe one of the best sellers on ebay and would like to thank all of you potential bidders for your support and taste in music!!! I strictly grade all LP's I list, visually and sonicallyusing the UK RRPG standardsas customer satisfaction is highly important to me, and I'll always do my very best not to let you down. Be sure to add me to your favourite sellers list and check my auctions frequently as i'll be listing some gems that you just WON'T want to miss out on!!!

I think that's everything, so let the auction commence!!!

The LP :

Labels :
Classic UK orange CBS rough textured “33” 1st Press labels!!! Allsides 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 51 year old record!!! Both must grade overall at least as Excellent+!!!
Record:Visual -
Spectacular Original 1966 UK 1st Press Vinysl!!! Nice bright, clean and shiny as if they were just pressed!!!Fantastic jet black mirror like surfaces, they look BRILLIANT with NO nasty scratches, groovewear, or nasty deep scuffs whatsoever!!! The only blemishes are just a few totally non-sounding mild cosmetic paper scuffs, a few of the lightest, wispy sleeve traces/cleaning lines (only visible in strong angled light) and only a few ULTRA light non sounding hairlines mostly from where it has sat or been removed from it's cover over the years!!! Of course, none of these ULTRA light blemishes interfere with play AT ALL!!! AWESOME for a record of this age and rarity!!! You'll be amazed by how generally clean and unworn they are!!! Both 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 AMAZINGLY with fantastic mono blast and clarity!!!It really sounds incredible with NO hops, skips OR sticks!!! Only like pretty much ALL records has only a small amount of ultra light ticks on very rare occasions, and only the MEREST TOUCH of low level static crackle in the rarest few and far between places such as on the run in grooves and between some tracks, but that's truly about it!!! The vast, vast, majority of the music is TRULY crystal clear - It really does mostly play with a CD-like near black silence, but with that depth, bass, warmth and clarity you can only get from UK 1st Press vinyl!!! EVEN most of the quiet sections!!! Absolutely ESSENTIAL!!! ASTONISHING for a record of this age and rarity!!! Must grade overall audibly as Excellent+!!! (graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not trashed or overgraded AT ALL!!! Customer satisfaction is of 100% importance to me)
OriginalUK 1966 1st Press laminated flipback gatefoldsleeve complete with original mega rare advertisement inners (PHENOMENAL unsplit condition for once)!!! IMPOSSIBLEto findthis sleeve in anything approaching a good condition -most arespent, torn and worndue to age andthe lifestyles of the buyers of this particular LP!!!This one is NOT, and looks FANTASTIC, especiallyconsidering the nature of these fragile sleeves!!!NO tears, NO writing OR graffiti, NO bad marks AT ALL, and stillULTRA strong andsolid after all these years!!! Only has a few minor signs of ageing suchas just a small amount of ultra light creases and a hint of a record imprint, some minor touches of general rubbing here and there from where it has sat between sleeves over the years (truly minimal) and a little dusting to the flipback tips with a small amount of ultra light general storage age spots near the inside spine (absolutely nothing drastic whatsoever),a 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 OUTSTANDING sleeve, and aTRUE rarity to find one as incredible as this- most havebeen virtually destroyed or are just about being held together,but not this one!!! The colours are as vibrant as the day it was pressed and the artwork looks AWESOME!!!It remains ultra strong, solid, unsplit and unspoilt, andeven the spine remains ultra strong, solid,unsplit and 100% readable!!! Must grade overallat least asVery Good+++!!!(graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not trashed or overgraded AT ALL!!! Customer satisfaction is of100% importance to me)

Summary : A truly FANTASTIC barely played exampleof this INCREDIBLY RARE classic original 1966 Mono masterpiece “33”UK 1st Press LP!!!

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!
