On offer here is a VERY rare Double LP (especially in this
condition!!!!) by The Beatles called "The Beatles" (more commonly known
as 'The White Album') and is an ORIGINAL UK MONO 1st Pressing on the
1st Press DARK Apple labels!!!! THIS DOUBLE LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND
VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!! THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER
BEATLES LPs OF ALL TIME AND VIRTUALLY NEVER TURNS UP FOR SALE!!!! JUST
TRY AND FIND ANOTHER ONE!!!! IT IS ONE OF THE RAREST LPs ON THE APPLE
LABEL, AND INCREDIBLY HARD TO LOCATE TODAY!!!! IT
IS ALSO NOTING - THAT SOME PEOPLE STILL ODDLY BELIEVE THE EMI TEXT ON
MAKES A DIFFERENCE. THOUGH WHEN MANY LOW NUMBERED EXAMPLES HAVE TURNED
UP WITH 'EMI RECORDING' TEXT (MOST RECENTLY A LOW
NUMBERED '0002902' COPY SOLD WITH THIS TEXT ON EVERY LABEL!), IT IS
CLEAR THAT RECORDS WERE ALLOCATED TO COVERS IN A COMPLETELY RANDOM
FASHION, AND THIS TEXT IS MEANINGLESS!!!! NOT ONLY THAT BUT THIS
INCREDIBLE DOUBLE LP IS 100% COMPLETE WITH ITS ORIGINAL HUGE POSTER,
2-RECORDS, 4 COLOUR 'PRINTS', 2 BLACK APPLE INNERS, AND 'NUMBERED'
(0230676) TOP OPENING GATEFOLD COVER!!!!
BOTH record labels are in SUPERB condition (see pictures) with NO stickers, NO wear, NO writing, and only a few VERY light spindle marks!!!! The vinyl is in GREAT condition overall!!!! Most of these 60s Double LPs had been to a lot of wild parties and are usually found totally worn out, and almost unplayable. This one is NOT and BOTH records have NO nasty 'concentric' marks AT ALL, only a few VERY light hairlines, NO nasty 'tick' marks AT ALL, only 2 or 3 VERY light scufflines, and only a VERY few of the lightest paper scuffs only visible under light!!!! ALL SIDES RETAIN EVERY BIT OF THEIR ORIGINAL 'JUST PRESSED' LOOK AND SHINE LIKE NEW!!!! It is great to find that the playing of the records are as STUNNING as the visual!!!! They play with NO skips, only a few VERY light clicks (though mostly NONE!), NO sticking, NO jumps, barely ANY crackle AT ALL, and only some slight background sound on the run on grooves & gaps - NOT in the music AT ALL!!!! The sound quality is simply SUPERB with NO distortion and NO groovewear either!!!! Its a hard one to grade, as each side is slightly different. 2 sides are AT LEAST Very Good+ if not better, one side is more like Very Good, and one side is more like Good+. But ALL SIDES SHINE LIKE NEW - and this double LP must overall grade Very Good (PROPERLY graded, NOT trashed!) if not better!!!! STILL A VERY DECENT SET OF RECORDS INDEED!!!! 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!!!! BOTH records also come in what looks to be their ORIGINAL Black inner sleeves which are in AWESOME condition (though, although these inners are PERFECT in detail in every way, they look a bit fresh for my liking and could well be re-pro inners)!!!! THE ULTRA RARE 1ST PRESS 'COLOUR' POSTER & 4 'COLOUR PRINTS' ARE ALL IN BRILLIANT CONDITION (apart from a couple of minor repairs to the creases on the poster)!!!! The ORIGINAL 1st Press 'Garrod & Lofthouse' Gatefold TOP Opening FULLY Laminated Flipback 'Numbered' MONO Cover is in BRILLIANT condition!!!! It has NO edge wear, some wear to the centre of the spine, NO spinal wear elsewhere, NO grubbyness, only VERY slight corner wear, NO stickers, only a few VERY light creases (cover is VERY flat looking indeed!), VERY shiny laminate, NO rips, NO tears, barely ANY yellowing AT ALL (virtually NONE!), NO annotations, and NO writing!!!! The TOP opening edges are still VERY nice and straight with barely ANY feathering AT ALL!!!! Even the laminated inside of the cover is in BRILLIANT condition with NO writing, STUNNING flipbacks, STUNNING shiny 'mirror-like' laminate, NO grubbyness, and NO yellowing!!!! The Number '0230676' number on the cover front is PERFECTLY printed (see picture) - and the raised lettering of 'The Beatles' on the cover front is in PERFECT order with NO grubbyness AT ALL!!!! The cover must grade Very Good+ if not better!!!! THIS DOUBLE LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO LOCATE - SO 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!!!!

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!
