Item Description

Hi, and welcome to psych_out! auctions!!!

I've collected50's, 60's, and early 70's records of almost every genre -Psych, Prog, Psychedelic Funk, Soul,Rhythm 'n' Blues, Pop, Folk, Garage, Acid, Freakbeat, Rock, Jazz e.t.c and everything in between for all my life!!!Obviously, 90% of the LP's I've ever gotten hold of are completelytrashed from the hard living ways and the rock 'n' roll, drug and booze fuelled debauchery of all the wild parties of the times, but the golden 10%? Reluctantly, I've decided tooffer themto all of you serious record collectors out there!!! I'm currently trying to set up a record label so unfortunately personal sacrifices have to be made when it comes to my collection, resulting in GREAT benefits for all you shrewd bidders and serious connosieurs of TRUE solid goldmusic history out there!!!Make no mistake, I'lltry my best to consistently offer some of theVERY BESTrecords available on ebay, many which have taken me YEARS to find!!!

I aim to put a weekly batch up (time permitting) every Wednesday, all timed to end 10 days later on Saturday night. I'll only everofferTHE BEST,MOSTAMAZING,MOSTIMPORTANT,VERYRAREST UK 1ST PRESSORIGINAL RELEASE RECORDSI've got!!! I won't insult you with later 2ndpressings unless they are of exceptional quality and rarity. I'm sure you love good music as much as me, especially when it's a 1st Press LP,direct from the master tape, as the musicians intended it to be heard (none of this "digitally remastered",weak reissued,remixedrubbish from hired hands with one eye on the mixing desk and the other on the clock! If these sessionmen really knew how genius should sound, surely they would've been geniuses themselves?! There will only ever be one Hendrix, and that's just a tiny example).

I try tobe one of the best sellers on ebay and would like to thank all of you potential bidders for your support and taste in music!!! I strictly grade all LP's I list, visually and sonicallyusing the UK RRPG standardsas customer satisfaction is highly important to me, and I'll always do my very best not to let you down. Be sure to add me to your favourite sellers list and check my auctions frequently as i'll be listing some gems that you justWON'Twant to miss out on!!!

I think that's everything, so let the auction commence!!!

The LP :

Labels :
ClassicUK 1st Press swirly Vertigo labels!!!Both sides are OUTSTANDING with NO real signs of age, NO graffiti, and NO writing OR tears whatsoever!!! Just has literally just two or three ultra light spindle marks which suggests that you can EASILY count the number of plays this has EVER had on just the one hand!!! IMPOSSIBLE for a 47 year old record!!! Both must grade overall at least as Excellent++!!!
Record:Visual -
Spectacular Original UK 1st Press Vinyl!!! Nice bright, clean and shiny as if it was just pressed!!! Fantastic jet black mirror like surfaces, it looks ASTONISHING with NO nasty marks, NO scuffs, NO scratches, NO fingerprints, and NO groovewear whatsoever!!! The only blemishes off TRUE perfection are only a TINY amount of ULTRA light, wispy sleeve traces (only visible inmegastrong angled light) from where it has sat or been removed from it's cover over the years!!! Of course, none of these ULTRA light blemishes interfere with play AT ALL!!! Most probably wouldn't/couldn't even mention them!!! UNBELIEVABLE for a record of this age and rarity!!! You'll beamazedby how clean and unworn it is!!! Must grade overall visually at least as Excellent++!!! (graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not overgraded AT ALL!!! Customer satisfaction is of 100% importance to me)

Record : Audio-
Thankfully, it plays AMAZINGLY with fantasticstereo separationand clarity!!! It really sounds incredible with NO hisses, hops, distortion, sticks OR skips!!! Only like nearly ALL records has a small amount of ultra light ticks on very rare occasions, and just the MEREST TOUCH of low level static in the rarest few and far between places such as on the run in grooves and between some tracks, but that's about it!!! The vast, vast, majority of the music is TRULY crystal clear - It really does mostly play with a CD-like near black silence, but with that depth, bass, warmth and clarity you can only get from UK 1st Press vinyl!!! EVEN most of the quiet sections!!! Absolutely ESSENTIAL!!! ASTONISHING for a record of this age and rarity!!! Must grade overall audibly as Excellent!!! (graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not trashed or overgraded AT ALL!!! Customer satisfaction is of 100% importance to me)
OriginalUK 1st Press"Howards" fully laminated box style sleeve complete with original swirly inner (just a small patch of water staining to one corner tip,no seam spits writing or graffiti whatsoever) and PHENOMENALLY rare poster((in MAGNIFICENT unaged and unused condition!!! AnASTONISHING most likely unbeatableexample - barely even left the sleeve, if ever)!!!IMPOSSIBLEto findthis sleeve in anything approaching a good condition -most arespent, torn and worndue to age andthe lifestyles of the buyers of this particular LP!!!This one is NOT, and looks BRILLIANT, especiallyconsidering the nature of these fragile sleeves!!!NO tears, NO writing, NO graffiti, NO bad marks AT ALL, and stillULTRA strong andsolid after all these years!!! Only has a small amount of ultra light signs of general mild ageing suchas just a tiny amount of mild edge creases and the merest ghost of a record imprint, a little laminate lifting along rare parts of the spine as is almost always the case with this cover (minimal and nothing drastic), a touch of denting to the four corners which basically ALL vintage sleeves have, and POSSIBLY (just to be sure!!!) one or two other minor signs of age here and there,though nothing that really stands out to note at all!!! And that's truly about it!!!I tend to bring it down by listing the most minor negatives I can possibly find, but this remains a MAGNIFICENT sleeve and aTRUE rarity to find one as fantastic and beautifully presentable as this- most havebeen virtually destroyed or are just about being held together,but not this one!!! It remains ultra strong, solid, unsplit and unspoilt, and even the spine remains ultra strong, solid, unsplit and 100% readable!!! Must grade overallat the least asVery Good++++!!! (graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not trashed or overgraded AT ALL!!! Customer satisfaction is of100% importance to me)
Summary:An INCREDIBLE exampleof this INCREDIBLY RARE Rock classic original 1971 Vertigo UK 1st Press LP complete with IMPOSSIBLE UNUSED POSTER!!! Hard to find in ANY condition, but SERIOUSLY RARE TO FIND ONE AS UTTERLY PHENOMENAL AS THIS!!! YOU MAY NEVER GET THE CHANCE AGAIN, so don't miss out on this scarce opportunity to own a true piece of 60's/70's music history!!! Bid now!!!

I've realized that most countries have their own unique grading system. I base mine strictly on the UK RRPG grading system (occasionally with a + or a - to indicate the higher and lower ends of the grade, though I only use these if i'm having real trouble deciding!), so please check their chart for further clarity if you are unsure of what my grades mean. As a general rule, a mint record will be 100% perfect, an excellent record will be in fantastic clean condition with the occasional mild mark and minor use fromthe years, and a very good record will have noticeable, yet light visual markings and obvious signs of age and use, but will still remain clean with relatively light wearand willplay fantastically wellwith plenty of life remaining in it. I very rarely offer records below the very good region unless they are of an EXCEPTIONAL rarity and playing quality...I hope this helps!
