HUGE AUCTION LISTINGS ENDING WEDNESDAY NIGHT (31st July) / EARLY
THURSDAY MORNING (1st August) THIS WEEK ONLY!!!! Currently I have HUGE
overstock of some INCREDIBLE items of the HIGHEST rarity - hence the
NOTE - this week my auction listings, will look slightly different!
This is because I have absolutely LOADS of items to list, and this is
the quickest way to list them - whilst still retaining ALL the very
important detail on condition, rarity etc (see all details below!).
Any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch via ebay messages, and
GOOD LUCK if you decide to bid! Please read on about this AMAZING item
RARITY:- Here we have one of the RAREST Rolling Stones records in the world! Yes it is a VERY tall statement, but one that is VERY well known amongst Rolling Stones collectors! This is (apart from promos etc) the RAREST Stock issue of ANY Rolling Stones record EVER MADE! I happen to know FOR A FACT that only 1 batch and 1 batch ONLY was ever made in Jamaica, which is hardly surprising, as The Rolling Stones werent popular there. All Jamaican 1st Pressings came with a Gatefold Laminated Imported 'Garrod & Lofthouse' UK Export Cover, and a Jamaican 1st Press record & inner sleeve made at 'Federal Records' in Jamaica. Which shows how little were ever made - as it was clearly cheaper to import the TINY amount of covers needed, rather than design and make them in Jamaica! Incidentally, usually 1 'batch' was either 300 copies, or 500 copies. So definitely less than 500 copies ever made like this, and almost certainly less than 300 copies ever made as a Jamaican 1st Pressing from 1968! This is UNDOUBTEDLY one of the very VERY rarest Rolling Stones releases anywhere in the world today, and almost IMPOSSIBLE to locate!
NB:- It is also worth noting, that Decca / London must have insisted on VERY high standards even in Jamaica - as this record looks and plays SUPERBLY! It is also worth noting that this LP is truly 100% COMPLETE as it has its ORIGINAL Jamaican 'Federal Records' inner sleeve - which clearly 'borrowed' its design from the Decca UK inner sleeves of the time!
PRESSING:- 1ST PRESSING (300 COPIES ONLY) + 'FEDERAL' INNER SLEEVE & UK 'GARROD & LOFTHOUSE' EXPORT COVER!
ARTIST:- THE ROLLING STONES
TITLE:- BEGGARS BANQUET
CAT NUMBER:- PS 539
SIGNS OF PLAY:- BARELY ANY!
RECORD GRADING:- The
record is in BRILLIANT condition and is VERY bright &
looking indeed! It has NO scratches, only 2 or 3 MEGA light hairlines, only 2 or 3 ULTRA light scufflines, and only a VERY few of
the lightest paper scuffs only
visible under light! ITS AS SIMPLE AS THAT! THE RECORD STILL RETAINS ITS ORIGINAL 'JUST
PRESSED' LOOK AND SHINES LIKE NEW! The record plays with
NO pops, NO jumps, NO sticks, NO distortion, and barely ANY crackle AT ALL! The record must grade Very Good++ if not better - and plays SUPERBLY! BRILLIANT RECORD!
INNER SLEEVE:- Original 'Federal' Jamaican inner sleeve in BRILLIANT condition!
SLEEVE:- The ORIGINAL 'Garrod & Lofthouse' Gatefold Laminated Export Cover is in BRILLIANT condition! The cover has NO edge wear, NO spinal wear, NO splits, only VERY slight corner wear (NOT through the colour!), VERY shiny laminate, only a few VERY light creases (cover is VERY flat looking!), NO rips, NO tears, only some very VERY minor evidence of 'tipping in' to the corners, NO annotations, and NO writing! The opening edges are beautifully straight with barely ANY feathering AT ALL! Even the inside of the cover is in SUPERB condition with NO grubbyness, barely ANY rubbing AT ALL, NO yellowing, and NO writing! The cover must grade Very Good++ if not better! BRILLIANT COVER!

Though there are rarely ever any problems with my items (I always try my very best to describe everything exactly!) - PLEASE REMEMBER to contact with me FIRST, if you have any problems at all, before you leave feedback and star ratings, so I get a chance to turn any negative experience into a positive one!

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!
