This is an original UK 1969 PRESSING of the highly sort after LP by Nick Drake

called FIVE LEAVES LEFT. It is on the original "BLOCK LOGO" Pink Island record

label. These early pressings are seriously hard to find and so they are highly prized

by serious record collectors. To find one condition like this copy right here is impossibly

rare. These none laminated original gate fold sleeves are very delicate by their nature

and so easily prone to damage. Double click the pictures and to the front you will see slight

ware to the top and bottom of the front sleeve and slight edge wear but the green area is still

verylush and deep solid in colour so it is still very verypresentable. The back of the sleeve

with that SUPERB shot of Drake so casual and cool ashes watchingthe Running man is in

great condition. Its only flaw is there is a price written inthe top left corner but its really faded

so dose`nt spoil the albums appearance. The insideof the sleeve is SUPERB , the black areas

are really dark and not spoiled by light fading. The original inner sleeve is present and in excellent

condition. Double click the pictures and have a look at those superb "block Iogo" pink island heavily

textured record labels, totally superb. The vinyl under a normal light is totally pristine to both sides.

Even under a bright spotlight I can only see 1 hairline about 4mm long on track 3 the rest of side 1 is

faultless. Side 2 I can not fault at all . Both sides of this LP have a lovely deep gloss sheen that

glimmers like mirror when tilted towards the light. This LP is in beautiful condition exceptionally close to

mint as can be. You would be very hard pushed to find a better copy. It plays beautifully. Slight static in

the dead waxbetween the tracks but when the music plays its difficult to fault and the playback is deep

warm and crystalclear on the extra heavy slab of ENGLISH vinyl. BEAUTIFUL. A RARE RARE ENGLISH

ORIGINAL FROM 1969 EXCEPTIONALLY HARD TO LOCATE IN THIS DREAM CONDITION.



A PENNY START AND NO RESERVE !!!!!!
