Welcome to my auctions....check out the other vinyl listed, more added each week and follow me so you don't miss out.
My dad was a private collector, he collected thousands and thousands of records from 1950's to early 2000's, many are rarities, obscurities and some are unique, I am not a dealer, just selling the collection now he is unable to do so himself.
ALL RECORDS ARE VISUALLY DESCRIBED AND GRADED unless it says otherwise. IF YOU DECIDE TO BID YOU ARE BIDDING ON THE VISUAL DESCRIPTION NOT ON HOW IT MAY PLAY, Even the most visually stunning record can have background noise, if you want perfect audio then please find another copy with audio gradings.
You can expect great service/fast dispatch/super strong packaging/combined shipping and honest, no nonsense gradings BUT Please read descriptions.
Cressida - Asylum - Large Vertigo Swirl Labels - Stereo - Earliest 1st UK Pressing - 1Y//1 2Y//1 Earliest Matrixes - One of the rarest Vertigo LPs + Swirl Inner
6360025 1 Y // 1 v 420 1 1 1
6360025 2 Y // 1 v 420 1 1 1
Both sides have lots of light whispy marks/hairline scratches. There are also some scuffs and scratches/needle marks. It is sold as a used record and would be a perfect collection filler although I have played it all the way through and there are no skips, jumps or sticks and because of the deep grooves the audio is still strong (with obvious background crackle/noise) Sold as described, No returns. A Very Rare Record.
Labels both have light signs of play (spiders legs) under strong light, Both labels are clean, bright and free from the usual writing etc Stunning...see photos
Original Earliest Possible Unlaminated Gatefold Sleeve Has some light wear. Some corner wear (mainly bottom corners). Light handling wear to opening edge. Some rubbing to bottom edges and top edges, Spine has some patches of wear but is still just readable. Front and Back are flat and clean with no real rubbing, still pretty clean too, a few tiny creases from edges, back has a tiny price written top right and a bit of staining along spine edge. Inside is crisp, clean with only slight handling wear...see photos...It's a Nice Example of this Rarest Earliest Issue Sleeve which is very flimsy and unlaminated.
The original Swirl Poly Lined Inner is discoloured with splits to left and right edges, a 2 inch split from top of opening edge and poly lining is loose, no other damage or writing.
One of the rarest and hardest to find Vertigo 1st UK Press LP In Used Condition. Sold as described, No returns
I will describe any flaws such as wear to sleeves, scuffs, marks or scratches to vinyl and describe them honestly, if you expect a better condition than I have listed then you need to learn to read. I will grade based on visual inspection under artificial light. PLEASE remember this is Vinyl...even brand new vinyl can have clicks and pops...that's part of its charm...if you want perfect audio without background noise...how about CD's or MP3's? THE RECORD IS VISUALLY DESCRIBED/GRADED, IF YOU BID YOU CONFIRM THAT YOU ARE PURCHASING THE RECORD BASED SOLELY ON THIS NOT HOW IT MAY PLAY.
NO RETURNS WILL BE ACCEPTED BASED ON HOW THE RECORD PLAYS UNLESS THERE IS AN AUDIO GRADING IN THE LISTING. I AM NOT A DEALER OR A SHOP, I'M JUST SELLING MY DADS LIFETIME COLLECTION.
