This is an original UNITED KINGDOM first pressing of THE OPEN MIND by THE OPEN MIND. Released way back in 1969 on the PHILIPS record label.This is another incredibly rare pressing of a very highly sought after collectorsrecord. The fully laminated none gate fold sleeve is in lovely condition.There is light laminate lift near the front of sleeve spine on the left hand side.A few very light laminate creases to the front very slight edge ware and slight damage to the front corner bottom right. The back of this magnificent sleeve has a couple of creases top right corner and very slight edge ware.The spine is in EXCELLENT condition and all spinal writings can be read clearly.So the sleeve grades as a conservative VERY GOOD ++ to Ex minus.The original inner sleeve is here and in EXCELLENT order.
Double click the pictures and look at the record label of side one . Only a handfulof ever so lite spindle trails on close inspection. The vinyl has a beautiful shine in normal house light and under the bright spotlight you have to search hard to seethe lightest of hairlines but they are only cosmetic and have no baring on the play backof this great LP.
The vinyl of side two also has a great sheeny shimmer that you find only on new records or old ones that have been very well cared for. Only a handful of very litespindle trails.There are some light hairlines to this side also but they have no affect on the way this gem plays.There is one slightly deeper mark on side about 4 mm long but you can not feel it at all . And the LP plays all the way with no skips jumps or sticking and no background noise to spoil things. The record grades as EXCELLENT MINUS.
To my knowledge less than a thousand of these were originally pressed so this hereis a very seldom seen collectors item that would enhance even the most seriousof record collections. This is a rare opportunity to grab a TRUE GEM !!!!
A PENNY START AND NO RESERVE !!!!!!
