ONLY AN ABSOLUTELY TINY AMOUNT OF THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSINGS ONLY - WERE EVER PRESSED LIKE THIS (BEFORE THE 'PHILIPS' CREDIT WAS IMMEDIATELY REMOVED!) AND THIS LP WAS THE LAST VERTIGO LP EVER TO BE MADE WITH THE 'EXTRA PHILIPS LABEL CREDIT' (HENCE IT LASTED THE SHORTEST AMOUNT OF TIME BEFORE REMOVAL!)!!!! IF YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THE LABEL - YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LABEL (SEE PICTURES) IT HAS PRINTED 'A PHILIPS RECORD PRODUCT'!!!! THIS TEXT ONLY EVER APPEARED ON THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSINGS EVER MADEAND WAS REMOVED IMMEDIATELY AFTER RELEASE!!!!SO THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT AT ALL - THAT THIS IS THE 'EARLIEST' & RAREST 1ST PRESSING OF THIS LP YOU CAN POSSIBLY GET!!!!

AND EVEN THE COVER IS IN ABSOLUTELY SUPERB CONDITION - WITH NO RINGWEAR, AND BARELY ANY RUBBING AT ALL (VIRTUALLY ZERO!)!!!! I HAVE EVEN MANAGED TO TAKE SOME VERY CLOSE UP PICTURES OF THE COVER - SHOWING EXACTLY JUST HOW UNRUBBED THIS COVER REALLY IS!!!! AND THAT IS SOMETHING THAT IS ALMOST NEVER SEEN ON THIS LP!!!! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURES - THIS IS AN ABSOLUTELY STUNNING EXAMPLE!!!!

THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS - SO DONT MISS OUT ON THIS INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY!!!! This is the ORIGINAL Vertigo UK 1st Pressing from 1970and is in absolutely STUNNING condition!!!! The record is pressed on THICK quality vinyl. The Cat. No isVO 7 onthe ORIGINAL 1st Press Vertigo label (see picture) and is a UK Stereo 1st Pressing (there were NO Monos!).

The record labels are in SUPERB condition (see pictures) with NO wear, NO writing, and only 1 MEGA faint spindle trace to 1 label ONLY!!!! IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT THIS RECORD HAS ONLY EVER BEEN PLAYED ONCE!!!! The vinyl is in absolutely AWESOME condition!!!! Most of these 60s/70s LPs had been to a lot of wild parties and are usually found totally worn out, and almost unplayable. This one is NOT and has NO scratches, NO hairlines, NO scufflines, only 2 or 3 absolutely ULTRA light TINY surface traces,andonly a VERY few of the lightest paper scuffs only visible underlight!!!! ITS AS SIMPLE AS THAT!!!! THE RECORD STILL RETAINS ITS ORIGINAL JUST PRESSED LOOK AND LOOKS AMAZING!!!! It is also GREAT to find that the record plays as STUNNINGLYasthe visual!!!! Therecord plays with NO pops, NO sticking, NO jumps, barely ANY crackle AT ALL, and only some EXTREMELY low level background sound on the run on grooves & gaps - NOT in the music AT ALL!!!! The sound quality is simply SUPERB with NO groovewear and NO distortioneither!!!! The record must grade MINT(Minus)!!!! AWESOME RECORD!!!! Believe me this record is NOT overgraded in ANY way!!!! I use STRICT RC grading standards - it is not in my interest not to!!!! Brillant!!!! The record comes in its ORIGINAL 1st Press Vertigo 'Spiral'inner sleeve which is in absolutely SUPERB condition - with NO splits, PERFECTLY white looking, VERY flat looking indeed, and still FULLY 'poly-lined'!!!! The ORIGINAL 1st Press Gatefold Cover is in absolutely BRILLIANT condition - and easily the VERY best I have EVER seen!!!! The cover has NO edge wear, NO edge splits, NO spinal wear (apart from some almost INVISIBLE 'touching in' traces - with PERFECT side words!), NO spine splits, NO ringwear AT ALL, only VERY slight corner wear(NOT through the colour!), NO sticker marks, barely ANY creases AT ALL (apart from 2 or 3 'touched in' creases on the spinal edge, barely ANY creases AT ALL elsewhere, and cover is PERFECTLY flat looking!), NO sticker tears, barely ANY rubbing AT ALL (virtually ZERO - and SUPERB bright colours!), NO annotations, and NO writing!!!! There are are 2 stickers in the top right corner on the cover front which look 100% correct for the age of the LP - and they are 100% flat and look completely UNTOUCHED. However, as I have no history with this LP - I obviously cannot guarantee what (if anything) is underneath them. And trying to remove them on a cover of this type wpuld be utter folly anyway. Either way this cover is so absolutely STUNNING in all other respects, and so very VERY rare to find as UNRUBBED as this one is - that this is a very VERY minor detail indeed!!!! And I for one, would definitely prefer this absolutely STUNNING looking cover (with virtually ZERO rubbing, and NO ringwear AT ALL!) with a couple of stickers in 1 corner (which are probably original anyway!), than the usual terribly rubbed examples you often see without any!!!! The opening edges are beautifully straight, with barely ANY feathering AT ALL!!!! Even the inside of the coveris in SUPERB condition with NO yellowing, NO grubbyness,NO ringwear, NO rubbing (apart from the usual touch towards the very top!),andNO writing!!!! The cover must MEGA STRICTLY grade Very Good++++ if not better - and is very VERY close to a grade above!!!! BRILLIANT COVER!!!! THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS (ESPECIALLY AS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE!) - SO DONT 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!!!! It really is a GREAT looking LP and it is truly rare to find any copies of this MEGA RARE LP!!!!

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!

After a few questions regards the stickers on the cover front. I have NO history with this LP and do not know what, if anything is underneath them. Personally I would bid as though there is something underneath them - then you cannot be disappointed! But in truth - this cover looks absolutely BRILLIANT! So why not just leave them alone? That is certainly what I would definitely recommend.
