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!!!

It's astonishing to think that this actual LP right here actually existed within his sweet, short, explosive lifetime 50 years ago - we will never see the likes of Hendrix everagain, without a doubt the greatest guitarist of all time!!!
About : Ultra RareOriginal 1967 UK 1st Press!!!

If you like good music, bid now!!!
The LP :
Classic UK Original black Track 1st Press labels!!! Both sides are FANTASTIC with minimal signs of age, NO writing, NO stickers, and NO tears whatsoever!!! Just has a small amount of ultra light spindle marks from careful light use over the years!!! AWESOME for a 50 year old record!!! Both must grade overall at least as Very Good++!!!
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 AWESOME with NO nasty scratches 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 incredibly feint hairlines 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!!! MAGNIFICENT for a record of this age and rarity!!! You'll be amazed by how generally clean and unworn it is!!! 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 playsAMAZINGLYwith fantasticmono blast and clarity!!! It really sounds incredible with NOhisses, hops, distortion, skips OR sticks!!!Onlylike pretty much ALL records has only just a few light ticks here and there on rare occasions, and just the MEREST TOUCH of low levelstatic here and there in the scarcest few and far between places such as onthe run in grooves and between some tracks,but that's trulyabout it!!! The vast, vast, majority of the music is TRULY crystal clear - It really does mostlyplay with aCD-like near black silence, but with that depth, bass, warmth and clarityyou can only get from UKDeccavinyl!!!EVENmostof the quiet sections!!! Absolutely ESSENTIAL!!! ASTONISHING for a record ofthis age and rarity!!! Must grade overall audiably as Excellent!!! (graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not trashed or overgraded AT ALL!!! Customer satisfaction is of100% importance to me)
Original 1967 UK 1st Press frontlaminated patents pending“E.J Day”sleeve complete with original inner!!!IMPOSSIBLE to find this sleeve in anything approaching a good condition - most are spent, torn, worn, and stained due to age and the lifestyles of the buyers of this particular LP!!! This one is NOT, and looks AWESOME, especially considering the nature of these fragile sleeves!!! NO tears, NO bad marks AT ALL, NO seam splits, and still ULTRA strong and solid after all these years!!! Only has a few minor signs of ageing such as a small amount of ultra light creases and a mere hint of a record imprint, a few minor touches of rubbing to the totally unsplit spine and only some VERY minor signs of general light ageing to the unlaminated back such as the slightest general light grazing from storage and a tiny original price written to the top left in pencil (truly minimal - absolutely NO coffee cup stains, writing, grubbiness OR graffiti!!!), 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 tent to bring it down by listing every minor negative I can possibly find, but this remains an AWESOME sleeve, and a TRUE rarity to find one as outstanding as this - most have been virtually destroyed or are just about being held together, but not this one!!! It remains ultra strong, solid, unsplit and unspoilt, and even the spine remains ultra strong, solid, unsplit and partly readable for once!!! Must grade overall at the very least as Very Good++!!! (graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not trashed or overgraded AT ALL!!! Customer satisfaction is of 100% importance to me)
Summary :A FANTASTIC exampleof this IMPOSSIBLY RARE pioneering classic debut UK 1st Press LP!!! Hard to find in ANY condition, but simply IMPOSSIBLY RARE TO FIND ONE AS TRULY AWESOME 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!
