On offer here is a VERY rare LP (especially in this condition!!!!)
byKaleidoscope called "Faintly Blowing" and is an ORIGINAL 1969 UK 1st
Pressing on the1st Press Fontana label!!!! THISLP IS SERIOUSLY
AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!! THIS IS ONE OF THE ALL TIME RAREST
UK PSYCH LPs EVER MADE - AND VIRTUALLY NEVER TURNS UP FOR SALE!!!!
AND FIND ANOTHER ONE!!!! BACK IN 1969 WHEN THIS LP WAS FIRST
RELEASED- IT ONLY EVER SOLD IN ABSOLUTELY TINY AMOUNTS, AND WAS ALMOST
IMMEDIATELY DELETED!!!! AS A RESULT IT IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND INCREDIBLY
HARD TO LOCATE TODAY!!!! THIS LP IS MADE EVEN RARER STILL - AS IT IS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE, WITH 'FULLY TEXTURED' LABELS (ALL LATER ONES WERE SMOOTH LABELLED INSTEAD!)!!!!
BUT WHAT MAKES THIS LP REALLY SPECIAL IS THAT IT HAS NO 'WATERMARK' AT ALL!!!! AND THIS IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ON THIS LP!!!! WHEN THIS LP WAS MANUFACTURED IN 1969, WATER SOMEHOW GOT INTO THE PRESSING PROCESS - WITH 99% OF COPIES HAVING AN UGLY 'WATERMARK' AT THE VERY EDGE OF ONE SIDE (OR BOTH SIDES) OF THE RECORD!!!! CLEARLY THIS IS VERY UNDESIRABLE - WITH MOST COLLECTORS LOOKING FOR A 1ST PRESSING WITHOUT THIS DAMAGE. BARELY ANY 1ST PRESSINGS ESCAPED THIS 'WATERMARK' - AND IT IS VERY RARE INDEED TO FIND ONE WITHOUT THIS!!!! SO NOT ONLY IS THIS LP THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE - BUT IT IS ALSO THE ALL TIME RAREST 1ST PRESSING, WITH NO WATERMARK ON THE RECORD AT ALL!!!!

to a lot
of wild parties and are usually found totally worn out, and almost
unplayable. This one is NOT and has NO nasty concentric marks AT ALL, NO nasty 'tick' marks, only 3 or 4 light
hairlines, only 3 or 4 VERY light scufflines, and
VERYfew of the lightest paper scuffs only visible under light!!!! THE

jumps, barely ANY
crackle AT ALL, NO distortion, NO groovewear, and only some slight background sound on
the run on grooves & gaps - NOT in the music AT ALL!!!! AND MOST IMPORTANTLY THIS RECORD HAS ABSOLUTELY NO 'WATERMARK' AT ALL!!!! The

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!
