in this condition!!!!) by The Rolling Stones called "The Rolling Stones"
and is an ORIGINAL1964 UKMONO 1st Pressing on the 1st PressUNBOXED
'Grooved' Decca label!!!!THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND ALMOST
IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!! THIS WAS THE ROLLING STONES FIRST &
RARESTLP EVER - AND VIRTUALLY NEVER TURNS UP FOR SALE!!!! JUST TRY AND
FIND ANOTHER ONE!!!! IN FACT, THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER LPs
OF ALL TIME - AND IS INCREDIBLY TOUGH TO LOCATE!!!! BUT WHAT MAKES
THIS LP REALLY SPECIAL, IS THAT IT IS ONE OF THE 'EARLIEST' & RAREST
1ST PRESSINGS OF THIS LP EVER MADE - WITH A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT
MIX!!!! AND THIS IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ON THIS LP!!!! THIS
IS THE AMAZINGLY RARE '2.52' 1ST PRESSING OF THIS LP AND PLAYS THE ULTRA
RARE '2.52' WITHDRAWN 'DEMO' VERSION OF 'TELL ME'!!!!THIS '2.52' MIX
SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN ON THIS LP AT ALL (AS IT WAS NEVER APPROVED!),
ANDWAS IMMEDIATELY CHANGED TO THE STANDARD '4.06' PRESSING OF 'TELL ME'
WHICH APPEARS ON ALLLATER PRESSINGS!!!!ONLY AN ABSOLUTELY TINY HANDFUL OF THESE
LPs EVER LEAKED OUT WITH THE WRONG '2.52' VERSION - AND MAKE THIS, THE RAREST &
MOST SOUGHT AFTER ROLLING STONES LP OF ALL TIME!!!! IT IS ALSO VERY
IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT ON THIS 1ST PRESSING - THE '2.52' VERSION OF
'TELL ME' IS NOT ONLY SHORTER THAN THE STANDARD LATER '4.06' VERSION -
BUT ALSO ATOTALLY DIFFERENT RECORDING!!!! IT SOUNDS TOTALLY DIFFERENT
(AND IN MY OPINION FARBETTER!) AND IS A SUPERB EXAMPLE OF THE ROLLING
STONES AT THEIR VERY BEST!!!! AND OF COURSE, YOU DONT NEED TO TAKE MY
WORD FORIT THAT THIS LP DOES INDEED HAVE THE ULTRA RARE '2.52' OF 'TELL
ME', BECAUSE IF YOU TAKE A LOOK ATMY VERY CLEAR PICTURES BELOW - YOU
CAN CLEARLY SEE A PICTURE OF THE 'XARL 6272-1A' MONO MATRIX NUMBER (ON THE 'TELL ME' SIDE OF THE LP!)
INDICATING THE WITHDRAWN '2.52' RECORDING OF 'TELL ME', AND I HAVE ALSO
TAKEN A PICTURE OF THE 'GROOVE SPACING' ON THAT SIDE OF THE RECORD -
WHICH LOOKS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT TO THE NORMAL VERSION!!!! YOU CAN IMMEDIATELY NOTICE THAT 'BAND 3' (TRACK 3 'TELL ME'!) IN THE GROOVES - IS MUCH MUCH THINNER ON THIS 'WITHDRAWN' VERSION - WHEREAS ON THE NORMAL VERSION IT IS MUCH WIDER!!!! THISLP IS
OF THE UTMOST RARITY - ANDALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS, AND I AM
VERY CERTAIN INDEED, THAT IT WILL BE A VERY VERY LONG TIME (IF EVER!)

The record labels are in SUPERB condition (see pictures) with
NO wear, NO writing, and only some spindle
markings to either label!!!! The vinyl is
in GREAT condition!!!! Most of
these 60s 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, only a few
VERY light hairlines, only 2 or 3 MEGA light scufflines, and only a VERYfew
of the lightestpaper scuffs only visible under light!!!! There is also
a very VERY faint 'shine' to the record (only when angled under VERY bright light
ONLY!) which leads me to suspect that this record may have been cleaned
in some way by a previous owner. THE RECORD IS STILL VERY BRIGHT &
SHINY LOOKING INDEED!!!! It is alsogreat to find that the record plays as
STUNNINGLYas the visual with NO skips, only a few VERY light clicks
(though mostly NONE!), NO sticking,
only some VERY minor distortion in places, NO jumps, and barely
ANY crackle AT ALL!!!! The record must grade Very
Good (PROPERLY graded, NOT trashed!) if notbetter - and is still a very VERY decent record indeed!!!! 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 alsocomes in its ORIGINAL 1st
Press'Handling/Playing' inner sleeve which is in BRILLIANT
condition!!!!The ORIGINAL 1st Press 'MacNeill' Flipback
LaminatedCover is in GREAT condition!!!! The cover has NO edge
wear, NO spinal wear, only VERY slight corner wear (NOT through the
colour!), NO rips, NO tears, only a few VERYlight creases(cover is VERY flat looking!),
VERY shiny laminate (apart from the usual VERY minor record impression!), NO splits, NO annotations, and NO writing!!!! The opening edge
isbeautifully straight with barely ANY feathering AT ALL!!!! Even the unlaminated
back of the coveris in BRILLIANT condition with NO yellowing, NO
grubbyness,NO ringwear, barely ANY rubbing AT ALL, andNO writing!!!!
Thecover must gradeVery Good+ if not better!!!! THERE IS ABSOLUTELY

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!
PLEASE NOTE - I may be called in for an operation on Monday should the opening arise. If so, there maybe a slight delay of sending of up to a week (but clearly it is likely to be far shorter as recovery times are thankfully quicker in this day and age). Of course, I will still be contactable even in the hospital bed. I will also schedule more auctions in advance anyway, so there will still be something to look at next week!

After questions - please note that the 'Tell Me' side does have the ALL IMPORTANT '1A' matrix indicating the WITHDRAWN 'Demo' 2.52 mix of 'Tell Me'!!!! The other side (which is completely unimportant as the mix was never changed on that side!) is 2a. Of course, as I just mentioned, that side isnt important at all - as the mix was only ever changed on the 'Tell Me' side ONLY - which has the EARLIEST & RAREST 1st Press 1a matrix!!!! Which is why the official and definitive UK RECORD COLLECTOR 'Rare Record Price Guide 2016' states:- "64 Decca LK 4605 ROLLING STONES (1st Pressing. plays 2.52 version of "Tell Me"; Side 2 matrix XARL 6272-1A)" Which is EXACTLY what this has! It has the 1ST PRESS ONLY 'XARL 6272-1A' Side 2 matrix (the 'Tell Me' side!) - clearly showing that this LP plays the ULTRA RARE and WITHDRAWN 2.52 'Demo' mix of 'Tell Me'. WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT MAKES THIS LP SO VERY RARE AND SOUGHT AFTER!!!!
