century collectables usually concerns itself with selling high quality Beatles
vinyl, however there are exceptions and this ultra rare UK 1st
pressing of the classic Stones album Let it Bleed in mono is one of those exceptions.
This copy was
pressed ahead of the December 5th 1969 release date. This is the Stones
at the height of their musical powers; on release it went straight to number
one, displacing Abbey Road by The Beatles. It would be the last Stones album to
be released in mono.
investment grade copy with MINT vinyl, possibly unplayed or at the very least played
mono had all but been phased out and as such only a small amount of mono copies
were ever pressed. EMI and the Beatles by this time had abandoned mono
altogether. 1st pressing mono copies of this album are therefore extremely
rare but to find one in such beautiful MINT condition is an opportunity not to be
makes this copy so remarkable is not just its condition but the fact that it
carries the very early 1A/1A matrix to both sides, these early
first pressings were pressed in tiny numbers before they were changed to the 2A
matrix and so whilst it would be a difficult task finding a 2A matrix copy in

In truly remarkable condition. The
vinyl is completely unmarked, even under a strong halogen desklight nothing is
revealed. A stunning looking MINT disc which looks as if it left the pressing
plant yesterday. Certainly investment grade condition and ultimate upgrade. The
disc lies 100% flat on the turntable.
A stunning set of factory fresh red Decca
careful playback confirms that the audio is undamged. Tremendous mono audio and
so very different from the stereo version. The record does not skip or jump.
An original 1st issue stickered cover in
immaculate shop fresh condition. A stunning example of a cover which was prone
to damage. The front panel retains its original high gloss sheen and is
completely unworn. The back panel is also in remarkable condition. This cover which
is 46 years old looks like it left the factory yesterday.
A fresh looking poster.
Original and fresh, red uncensored Bach
Choir inner with factory and storage creases.
