THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!!THISIS EASILY BOB DYLAN'S RAREST & MOST SOUGHT AFTER LP EVERAND VIRTUALLY NEVER TURNS UP FOR SALE!!!! BUT WHAT MAKES THIS LP REALLY SPECIAL IS THAT IT IS 1ST PRESSED IN MEGA RARE STEREO - AND IS THE EARLIEST' UK STEREO 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE!!!!! AND THIS IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ON THIS LP!!!! WHEN THIS LP WAS FIRST RELEASED BACK IN 1963,NEARLY EVERY 1ST PRESSING WAS MADE IN COMMON MONO - WITH VIRTUALLY NONE IN MEGA RARE STEREO AT ALL!!!! AND DEMAND FOR STEREOs WAS SO ABSOLUTELYTINY IN 1963, THAT MOST SHOPS DIDNT EVEN STOCK STEREOs AS STANDARD - AND THEY WERE ONLY AVAILABLE BY 'SPECIAL ORDER' ONLY!!!! AS A RESULT, FINDING AN 'EARLIEST' UK 1ST PRESSING OF THIS LP IN MEGA RARE STEREO IS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE - AS BARELY ANY WERE EVER MADE!!!!

AND IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE ALL THE DETAILS ON THIS LP TO APPRECIATE ITS TRUE RARITY!!!! LATE 1960s STEREOs ARE VERY COMMON INDEED - BUT QUITE LITERALLY ONLY A FEW HUNDRED 'EARLIEST' STEREO UK 19631ST PRESSINGS WERE EVER MADE, MAKING IT ONE OF THE ULTIMATE BOB DYLAN RARITIES!!!! I WILL NOW EXPLAIN IN GREAT DETAIL - WHAT MAKES THIS LP THE 'EARLIEST' UK STEREO 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE:-

FIRSTLY, THIS LP HAS 'FULLY TEXTURED' LABELS (WITH '33' LABEL TEXT!), A TINY CENTRAL RIDGE (LATER ONES DONT!), AND HAS THE 'THICKEST' CBS BLOCK LOGO (LATER ONES FROM ARE THINNER!)!!!! SECONDLY THE MATRIX ENDINGS END IN 1Y/1 AND 2Y/1 - WHICH ARETHE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS STEREO MATRIX ENDINGS EVER MADE, AND CHANGED ON ALL LATER PRESSINGS!!!! THIRDLY THE COVER HAS TWO LARGE 'STEREO' LOGOSPRINTEDIN THE TOPMIDDLE OF THE COVER FRONT (UNDER THE LAMINATE!) AND ALSO IN THE TOP MIDDLEOF THE COVER BACK (LATER ONES DONT!)!!!! FOURTHLY - IN THE TOP RIGHT CORNER OF THE COVER BACK, IT HAS PRINTED 'SBPG 62193' TO THE LEFT OF THE CBS LOGO (LATER ONES HAD IT PRINTED BELOW THE LOGO INSTEAD!)!!!! FIFTHLY, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY (AS THIS ONLY APPLIEDTO 1963 1ST PRESSINGS ONLY!) - THE LABELS HAVE 'FIRST PUBLISHED 1963' ON THEM (REMOVED IN 1964) AND 'POINTED' FLIPBACKS (AGAIN REMOVED IN 1964!)!!!! AND LASTLY AT THE BOTTOM OF THE COVER BACK THERE IS PRINTED 'CBS IS A TRADEMARK OF COLUMBIA BROADCASTING SYSTEM INC' WITH NO MANUFACTURERS CREDIT (LATER ONES HAD THIS ADDED!)!!!! SO THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT AT ALL - THAT THIS IS QUITE LITERALLY THE 'EARLIEST' & RAREST UK STEREO 1ST PRESSING OF THIS INCREDIBLE LP THAT YOU CAN POSSIBLY GET!!!!

The record labels are inSUPERB condition (see pictures) with NO writing, NO stickers, NO tears, and barely ANY spindle marks AT ALL!!!! Please also note that what looks like 'wear' around 1 centre hole is CLEARLY from manufacture (and NOT 'wear' AT ALL!), as the spindle traces are VERY few on both sides - clearly showing that this LP has only been played a VERY few times!!!! IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT THIS RECORD HASNT BEEN PLAYED MUCH AT ALL!!!! The vinyl is in SUPERB condition!!!! Most of these 60s LPs had been to a lot of wild parties and are usually found totally worn out, and almost unplayable.

PLEASE NOTE - Private feedback bidders must consult me first prior to bidding - due to previous problems regarding non-payment, and non-receipt.


MY POSTAGE UNDERCHARGE GUARANTEE TO ALL BUYERS (I always undercharge on postage!):- Due to UK Royal Mail's obscene price increases this year - I have had no choice but to increase postage charges a little. Until this year - I had kept them exactly the same since I joined ebay back in 2002. However this years price increases have been so obscene, that I have had no choice but to increase my postage charges for the first time ever. However PLEASE NOTE - my absolute 100% guarantee to you as a buyer - is that I will ALWAYS undercharge postage on everything I send out. Even after the increases, I am still charging you the buyer LESS than I am being charged myself. On each package I send out - the price is clearly stated on the front of the package (please check it when you recieve it!). I also do NOT charge for packaging costs - ONLY for postal costs! And should you find that I have overcharged you postage in ANY way - I will refund DOUBLE the difference. THAT IS MY 100% POSTAL GUARANTEE FOR EACH AND EVERY BUYER! No buyer EVER deserves to be overcharged on postage - and on my listings, I'll make sure they are ALWAYS undercharged. Any questions - please ask!

PLEASE NOTE - I may be called in for an operation on Monday should the opening arise. If so, there maybe a slight delay of sending of up to a week (but clearly it is likely to be far shorter as recovery times are thankfully quicker in this day and age). Of course, I will still be contactable even in the hospital bed. I will also schedule more auctions in advance anyway, so there will still be something to look at next week!
