The 'music' itself was the result of an all-night session of musical experimentation in Lennon's home studio at Kenwood with Yoko Ono and features 'avant-garde' pieces featuring tape loops from John's Mellotron, piano, organ, drums played by John together with sound effects and ad-lib comments and noises with Yoko.
This NEAR MINT stereo pressing is on the dark green Apple label with the Track logo & catalogue number: 613012
Machine stamped matrices: SAPCOR 2 A-1 & SAPCOR 2 B-1
Vinyl weight: 147g
Housed in its infamous nude cover printed by 'Technink Limited' & complete with matt-black inner-sleeve.
N.B. UK pressings were not routinely sold in brown paper bags as in the U.S.
Labels: NEAR MINT
A pristine pair bearing just two faint spindle trails around each unworn centre hole.
Visual: NEAR MINT
Immaculate 'factory-fresh' deep-gloss playing surfaces which are unmarked in strong daylight with just a few harmless wispy marks from the inner and a sparkling rainbow shine beneath halogen light. No need to upgrade this disc.
Sound Quality: NEAR MINT
According to its original owner, this LP was played just once and my single play-check confirms the sound quality to be flawless throughout.
Cover: EXCELLENT +
This remarkably well-preserved example is clean & fully intact and must be one of the best of its kind surviving.
The fron panel retains an unscratched laminate with just an unavoidable light disc impression, but no 'thumbnails' or any other creasing.
As is common for these covers, there is a little laminate lift towards the spine, but it is not cracked or has any missing pieces.
All corners are sharp & square and both opening edges are unworn.
Both seams and the unworded spine are all smooth, unstressed & unsplit.
Inner sleeve: EXCELLENT +
Clean & unworn with just a few gentle storage bends, but no tears or seam splits.
