Just Another Diamond Day
[PHILIPS 6308019, UK]
HOLY GRAIL TIME! Here you have the impossibly rare original UK first press of this legendary and absolutely essential LP from 1970. Lovely looking non-laminated gatefold sleeve. This album is said to have only been sold in about 200-300 copies at the time of release and is nowadays ridiculously difficult to find. This is one of the rarest UK major label LPs of all time. Have a listen to the soundclip below, it features one minute from every track on the album recorded directly from the LP up for grabs without any sound altering.
If you want to hear exactly how the LP plays - from beginning to end - I have uploaded the A and B sides in their entirety (from the needle-drop to the run-out groove). You can hear the a-side HERE and you can hear the b-side HERE. These big files (about 40 MB each) are encoded in highest possible quality (320kbps). What you hear in these soundclips represent exactly what the LP plays like, without any sound alterations. What you hear is what you'll get.
A-side matrix: 6308019 1Y / 2 112
B-side matrix: 6308019 2Y//1 111
Sleeve condition: EX- (shelf wear to the edges/corners and spine, light ringwear on back, tiny "scratch" on the back above the cow left of the "window" - see pictures!)
Vinyl condition: VG+ (has got many light hairline scratches but does NOT have many clicks and overall sounds fine and plays with brilliant clarity, it does however also play with some distortion especially towards the last songs on the b-side, I advise you to listen to the FULL soundclips of the entire LP that can be found above so you know exactly what you're bidding on)
Double-click on the "play" button above to listen to SOUND CLIPS of both sides! If the player above doesn't work, click HERE to listen to the MP3.
