A message to all our customers!!!
We want you to be happy with your trading with us, we try our best to make this happen but we are also a busy shop and cannot attend to eBay during the day. If you have ANY problems, please come to talk to us FIRST and allow us time to respond, we are here to help you.

Original UK pressing.
This is the rarest FIRST edition, TURQUOISE lettering in the top left and the 'Atlantic' logo bottom right. ALL subsequent issues have orange lettering and logo.
This is NOT a reissue, it's the genuine 1st pressing with A1/B1 matrixes and the all important 'Superhype' credit on the labels.
Not much more to say about the album itself, this is obviously one of the best and most classic of all classic rock albums but when it came out, the band were just another in a long line of wannabe's, although it's fair to say they had something most other bands lacked! This album hardly registered on first pressing but that soon changed as we all know. Consequently this rare first pressing is now amongst one of the most collectible albums in the world and getting increasingly harder to find. Here's a good example, although it's important to note the condition is not perfect; the vinyl shows its age visibly and has some noise in the grooves (check the provided sound sample). The cover is a better example, although there is also visible handling and some bending to the all-laminate surfaces, the print is all clear and visible.
You'll find better pressings but as a rock legend artifact, this is a very rare find!

Payment is by Paypal only! (eBay users without Paypal cannot bid on our items). However you may also come to the Camden Town shop in person.
Please ALWAYS wait for your invoice, especially if you have won multiple items because we may need to calculate the shipping. If you require insurance, please let us know first.
Payment must be completed within 7 days of end of auction (or items may be re-listed). Please contact us before bidding if you cannot do this.

We do not automatically refund for accidental damage or loss in transit.

Star Ratings:
This is more than just an add-on, it's a method to enforce sellers to trade to eBay standards. Buyers can give sellers marks for 'item as described', 'shipping time', 'shipping cost' and 'communication'.
VERY IMPORTANT Sellers are required to maintain an average of over 4.5 stars for each category. This means that anything less than a 5 star rating actually counts against the seller (though you may not have meant it to). This is not made clear to buyers so that's why we're telling you now.
Shipping cost: Our prices are clearly marked on the table above and you should not have any complaint about that after the sale.
Item As Described: We try our best to make our descriptions accurate but mistakes can happen. We GUARANTEE our items, so if you have any problem we will refund you.
Shipping time: We try to ship on the next available posting day but we are a busy shop and this can't always happen. We will let you know if there is any significant delay. Please take into consideration any public holidays, etc.
Communication: We try to respond immediately but we are a busy shop. The eBay part of our business is conducted OUTSIDE shop hours therefore some communication may be delayed. Please take this into consideration when asking a question or when leaving a rating.
We would consider it rude if you go straight to eBay or Paypal before contacting us. Remember eBay are not selling you this item; WE ARE! Any refunds or claims for damage will have to come from our pockets. If for ANY reason you are unhappy with our service, or if anything goes wrong, please contact us first and we will try to solve the problem together. We're here to help you. We want to keep you happy so please contact us with any questions at any time.
Thanks to all our customers! We love you.
