Item Description

This EXPORT edition of their 2nd Capitol LP was pressed in the UK in late-1965 on the yellow & black Parlophone label: CPCS 103

Both labels have 'Gramophone Co..' rims and there is an 'MT' purchase tax code on the side 2 label.

Matrix numbers: YEEX 110-A9 & YEEX 111-A9

Earliest possible stamper codes: 1/G & 1/G

Vinyl weight: 166g

Housed in a front laminated, tri-flipback 'Garrod & Lofthouse' printed cover, with original rice-paper lined inner-sleeve.




Both are bright & clean with some light, well-aimed spindle trails around each unworn centre hole.


Clean, deep-gloss playing surfaces which bear no significant surface marks in strong daylight. Closer examination beneath my unforgiving halogen desk lamp reveals some harmless wispy paper hairlines consistent with inner-sleeve contact/removal, but nothing I would call a scratch.

Sound Quality: EXCELLENT

This little played copy sound clean and unworn throughout with nothing more than a touch of low-level vinyl background between tracks.


A clean & fully intact example displaying light handling and storagewear but no major faults.

The front panel retains an unworn high-gloss laminated bearing only a single tiny' thumbnail' wrinkle towards its opening edge.

There is some wear to the upper corners but nothing of any significance to either opening edge.

The rear panel is clean & white and free from any writing or missing paper.

Both seams are smooth & unstressed and the spine is unworn and fully worded.

Inner-sleeve: EXCELLENT
