THIS DOUBLE LP ALSO HAS THE INFAMOUS 'NUDE' COVER FRONT PICTURE, WHICH WAS BANNED IN MANY UK RECORD SHOPS AT THE TIME (AND ALSO BANNED IN MANY OTHER COUNTRIES ASWELL!)!!!! AND NOW TAKING PICTURES OF THE FRONT PICTURE HAS ALSO BEEN BANNED BY EBAY - WHICH IS WHY I CANNOT SHOW A FULL PICTURE OF THE COVER FRONT!!!! SO IF YOU ARE WONDERING WHY THERE IS NO FULL FRONT COVER PICTURE - THATS THE REASON!!!!
AND THIS AMAZING DOUBLE LP TRULY IS A 100% GENIUNE 'DAY OF RELEASE' 1ST PRESSING!!!! THIS DOUBLE LP WAS RELEASED ON OCTOBER 16 1968 - AND AS YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE ON MY PICTURES - THE INNER SLEEVES BOTH HAVE MATCHING '108' (OCTOBER 1968!) DATE CODINGS!!!! AND THIS CLEARLY SHOWS THAT THIS AMAZING DOUBLE LP WAS BOUGHT ON THE VERY 'DAY OF RELEASE' BACK IN 1968, AND IS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE!!!!
NOT ONLY THAT BUT THIS DOUBLE LP IS IN ABSOLUTELY SUPERB CONDITION - AND HAS BARELY BEEN PLAYED AT ALL!!!! EVEN THE COVER LOOKS BEAUTIFULY FLAT (WITH NONE OF THOSE NASTY CREASES ACROSS IT WHICH MOST COPIES HAVE!), AND EVEN THE SPINE IS STILL VERTICAL AND UNCRUSHED!!!! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURES!!!! THIS IS THE ORIGINAL 1968 UK 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING ON THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS TRACK LABELS, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 'UPSIDE DOWN' MATRIXES ON THE LABELS, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 1/1/1/1 MATRIXES, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 'DATE CODED' INNER SLEEVES, AND ULTRA RARE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 'E.J.DAY' FULLY LAMINATED 'BLUE TEXT' GATEFOLD COVER (WITH 'LARGER PICTURES' & 'BLUE TEXT' ON THE INSIDE OF THE COVER!)!!!! THIS DOUBLE LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS - SO DONT MISS OUT ON THIS AMAZING OPPORTUNITY!!!! This is the ORIGINAL Track UK 'Earliest' 1st Pressing from 1968 and is in SUPERB condition!!!! The records are pressed on THICK quality vinyl. The Cat. No is 613 008/9 on the ORIGINAL 1st Press 'Matt' Track Labels (see picture) and is a Stereo 1st pressing (there were NO Monos)!!!!
The record labels to BOTH records are in SUPERB condition (see pictures) with NO writing, NO wear, and barely ANY spindle marks AT ALL!!!! IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT THESE RECORDS HAVE BARELY BEEN PLAYED AT ALL!!!! The vinyl is in absolutely AWESOME condition!!!! Most of these 60s Double LPs had been to a lot of wild parties and are usually found totally worn out, and almost unplayable. These records are NOT and BOTH records have NO scratches, NO hairlines, NO scufflines, and only a VERY few of the lightest paper scuffs only visible under light!!!! ITS AS SIMPLE AS THAT!!!! BOTH RECORDS STILL RETAIN THEIR ORIGINAL 'JUST PRESSED' LOOK AND LOOK AMAZING!!!! It is great to find that BOTH records play as STUNNINGLY as the visual (apart from 1 TINY detail!) with NO pops, NO sticking, NO jumps, and barely ANY crackle AT ALL!!!! The only detail I did notice (though I cannot see any reason for it!) is 4 or 5 revolutions of surface noise (and 3 or 4 almost inaudible clicks!) at the VERY beginning of 'Little Miss Strange' - though this is an INCREDIBLY minor detail, and the rest of the double LP plays SUPERBLY - with AWESOME sound quality, and NO distortion AT ALL!!!! This really is an INCREDIBLY minor detail on an absolutely AWESOME set of records that have clearly barely EVER been near a turntable since they were bought back in 1968!!!! BOTH records must grade Excellent++++ if not MINT(Minus)!!!! WHAT AN AMAZING SET OF RECORDS!!!! Believe me these records are NOT overgraded in ANY way!!!! I use STRICT RC grading standards - it is not in my interest not to!!!! Brillant!!!! The records also come in their ORIGINAL 1st Press 'Date Coded' inner sleeves which are both in BRILLIANT condition - with NO repairs, NO splits, and PERFECT 'poly-lining'!!!! The ULTRA RARE 'Earliest' 1st Press 'E.J.Day' FULLY Laminated 'Blue Text' Gatefold Cover is in absolutely BRILLIANT condition - and one of the VERY best I have EVER seen!!!! It has NO edge wear, NO spinal wear (still vertical and UNCRUSHED!), only VERY slight corner wear (NOT through the colour!), NO rips, NO tears, only some very VERY minor evidence of 'tipping in' to the corner tips, NO splits, only a VERY few light creases (cover is VERY flat looking indeed!), VERY shiny laminate, NO annotations, and NO writing!!!! The opening edges are beautifully straight with barely ANY feathering AT ALL!!!! Even the laminated inside of the cover is in SUPERB condition with NO grubbyness, NO yellowing, STUNNING shiny laminate, and NO writing!!!! The cover must MEGA STRICTLY grade Very Good++++ if not better - and is very VERY close to a grade above!!!! BRILLIANT COVER!!!! THIS DOUBLE LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS (ESPECIALLY AS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE - IN SUPERB CONDITION!) - SO DONT MISS OUT ON THIS INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY!!!!HAVE A LOOK AT MY PICTURES - I DO MY BEST TO SHOW THE RECORD FROM ALL ANGLES AND MAKE THE PICTURES AS CLEAR AS POSSIBLE - THERE IS NOTHING TO HIDE!!!!

Please do NOT bid if you cannot give me at least 1 chance to sort everything out to your FULL satisfaction in the unlikely event of a problem. Thanks again - Graham @ XXXRecords. 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!
