On offer here is a VERY rare LP (especially in this condition!!!!) by The Beatles called "Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band" and is an ORIGINAL 1967 UK MONO 1st Pressing on the 1st Press Yellow & Black Parlophone label!!!! THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!! THIS IS ONE OF THE BEATLES RAREST LPs EVER - AND VIRTUALLY NEVER TURNS UP FOR SALE!!!! JUST TRY AND FIND ANOTHER ONE!!!! IT IS ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER LPs ON THE PARLOPHONE LABEL - AND IS INCREDIBLY HARD TO LOCATE TODAY!!!! THIS LP IS MADE EVEN RARER STILL - AS IT IS 100% COMPLETE WITH ITS ORIGINAL 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 'DARKER GREEN' INSERT (LATER ONES WERE LIGHTER GREEN INSTEAD!), AND 'RED/WHITE' INNER SLEEVE!!!!
THIS LP IS ALSO MADE EVEN RARER STILL - AS IT IS AN ULTRA RARE 'FACTORY SAMPLE' 1ST PRESSING!!!! AND AGAIN, THIS IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ON THIS LP!!!! 'FACTORY SAMPLE' PRESSINGS WERE ONLY EVER PRESSED IN ABSOLUTELY TINY AMOUNTS (NO MORE THAN A HUNDRED COPIES AT THE VERY MOST!), AND WERE ONLY EVER USED FOR 'IN-HOUSE' USE BY EMI / PARLOPHONE THEMSELVES (FOR PROMOTIONAL PURPOSES), OR VERY OCCASSIONALLY ONE WAS GIVEN OUT TO 'IMPORTANT VISITORS' TO THE FACTORY - SUCH AS PROSPECTIVE CLIENTS FOR EXAMPLE!!!! 'FACTORY SAMPLES' WERE NEARLY ALWAYS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSINGS EVER MADE OR WERE DIFFERENT TO OTHER COPIES (AS IN THIS CASE!) - AND ARE TRULY EXCEPTIONALLY HARD TO FIND TODAY!!!! BARELY ANY 'FACTORY SAMPLE' 1ST PRESSINGS OF THIS LP WERE EVER MADE - MAKING THIS LP OF THE UTMOST RARITY!!!!
BUT WHAT MAKES THIS LP ALMOST UNIQUE (BARELY ANY CAN EXIST LIKE THIS TODAY!) - IS THAT IT HAS A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT COVER!!!! NOW FIRSTLY, THIS LP HAS THE ULTRA RARE 'PATENTS PENDING' COVER TEXT (IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER ON THE COVER BACK!), WHICH IS EXTREMELY RARE IN ITS OWN RIGHT - AS BARELY ANY COVERS HAD THIS TEXT (MOST DID NOT!)!!!! HOWEVER, THE ONE THING I HAVE NEVER SEEN ON THIS COVER BEFORE - IS THE WEIRD AND STRANGE COLOURING, MAKING THIS COVER LOOKING 'MISTY' OR 'FOGGY'. NOW - BEFORE I GET ANY EMAILS, THIS IS NOT FADING, NOT A PRINTING ERROR (EVERYTHING IS PERFECTLY SHARP AND NOT BLURRED AT ALL), AND DEFINITELY NOT FROM RUBBED OR WORN LAMINATE (THE LAMINATE IS SHINY!), AND ALSO DEFINITELY NOT FROM 'FAINT' COLOURS - AS THE COLOURS AREN'T FAINT - THEY ARE JUST STRANGE AND COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!!!! AND THIS ISN'T SOME 'MINOR DIFFERENCE', AS YOU CAN SEE FROM MY COMPARISION PICTURES, THIS IS A RADICAL DIFFERENCE - AND IMMEDIATELY NOTICEABLE!!!! IT IS ACTUALLY ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO DESCRIBE THIS COVER - WHAT I SUGGEST IS YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURES (THIS ULTRA RARE 'MISTY' COVER IS ON THE LEFT IN BOTH PICTURES!)!!!! SO WAS THIS A 'TRIAL' COVER???? A DIFFERENT DESIGN???? I HAVEN'T A CLUE. BUT WHAT I CAN SAY - IS THAT THIS IS THE ALL TIME RAREST 1ST PRESS VARIATION I HAVE EVER SEEN ON A 'SGT PEPPER' COVER, AND I HAVE NEVER EVER SEEN ANOTHER ONE!!!!
NOT ONLY THAT BUT THIS LP IS IN BRILLIANT CONDITION!!!! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURES!!!! THIS IS THE ORIGINAL 1967 UK MONO 1ST PRESSING ON THE 1ST PRESS 'YELLOW & BLACK' PARLOPHONE LABEL, ULTRA RARE 1ST PRESS 'FACTORY SAMPLE' STICKER ON THE SIDE 1 LABEL, 1ST PRESS 'GRAMOPHONE COMPANY' LABEL EDGE TEXT, 1ST PRESS 'SOLD IN THE UK' LABEL TEXT, 1ST PRESS 1/1 MONO MATRIX ENDINGS, 1ST PRESS 'RED/WHITE' INNER SLEEVE, 1ST PRESS 'DARKER GREEN' INSERT, AND 1ST PRESS 'GARROD & LOFTHOUSE' FLIPBACK FULLY LAMINATED 'PATENTS PENDING' MONO COVER!!!!

This one is NOT and has NO scratches, only 2 or 3 VERY light hairlines, only 2 or 3 MEGA light scufflines, and only a VERY few of the lightest paper scuffs only visible under light!!!! THE RECORD STILL RETAINS ITS ORIGINAL 'JUST PRESSED' LOOK AND SHINES LIKE NEW!!!! It is also great to find that the record plays as STUNNINGLY as the visual!!!!

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!
