THE RECORDS

 

THE LABELS

THE BLACK AND SILVER TEXTURED TRACK LABELS ARE IN SUPERB CONDITION. . THE BLACK RUNS FULLY INTO THE UNWORN SPINDLE HOLE , WHILST THE SILVER TYPEFACE IS ALL UNRUBBED AND PERFECTLY LEGIBLE. THERE IS A SPECK OF RUB TO THE TRACK LOGO BUT THIS IS VERY MINOR.

THERE ARE 6-7 SMALL SPIDER LINES AROUND THE SPINDLE HOLE

 

THE VINYL

THE VINYL HAS RETAINED IT'S ORIGINAL SHEEN AND LUSTRE AND IN DAYLIGHT LOOKS SUPERB. ONLY WHEN PLACED UNDER INTENSE ILLUMINATION ARE THERE SOME WISPY HAIRLINES TO BE SEEN, ALONG WITH SOME ANGEL HAIRLINE SUPERFICIAL HANDLING LINES

PLAYING THE RECORD

I BELIEVE THAT IF YOU ARE GOING TO SPEND YOUR MONEY ON A FANTASTIC COLLECTIBLE VINYL, THAT YOU SHOULD BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR WHAT YOU ARE BUYING. I HAVE THEREFORE INVESTED IN THE SOFTWARE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO DO JUST THAT.

I HAVE RECORDED THE ENTIRE ALBUM FROM START TO FINISH AS I DO WITH ALL MY LISTINGS, AS I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT BIDDERS WOULD LOVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE ABLE TO HEAR THE LP BEFORE LAYING A BID

THIS RARE MONO RECORDING PLAYS SUPERBLY ALL THE WAY THROUGH BOTH SIDES.

THE FIRST THING TO MENTION IS THE TOTAL LACK OF DISTORTION. THERE IS NO GROOVE WEAR MEANING THAT WHAT PLAY THE RECORD HAS RECEIVED WAS COMPLETED ON A SYSTEM THAT HAD A CORRECTLY WEIGHTED AND UNWORN STYLUS

THERE IS NO HEAVY BACKGROUND CRACKLING NOR ARE THERE ANY LOUD CLICKS AT ANY POINT

NO EMBEDDED VINYL NOISE WHATSOEVER, AND ONLY THE VERY ODD LITTLE SPECK OF STATIC LIKE BACKGROUND, CERTAINLY NOTHING THAT DETRACT FROM THE CRYSTAL CLEAR AND CLEAN MONAURAL SOUND OF THIS VINYL

THERE ARE NO DUST POPS JUST A COUPLE OF TINY STATIC LIKE TICS

FOR ME THIS REPRODUCTION IS NEAR MINT!!

 

BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE MY WORD FOR IT, TAKE A LISTEN AND JUDGE IT AGAINST YOUR OWN STANDARDS

 


 

 

 

THE SLEEVE

 

FANTASTIC SLEEVE WITH A MAGNIFICENT SPINE WHICH IS ALMOST UNHEARD OF. THE SLEEVE IS A LAMINATED GATEFOLD FROM THE E.J.DAY CO.

THE FRONT SURFACE IS MAGNIFICENT AND GLEAMS LIKE NEW. THE MAIN BODY OF THE FRONT IS TOTALLY FREE FROM ANY CREASES OR CREASE LINES.  THERE ARE JUST SIX MINUSCULE LAMINATE LINES AND FIVE ON THE TOP AND BOTTOM EDGES. NO THUMB LINES NEAR THE SPINE EITHER. THE CORNER TIPS HAVE VERY VERY LIGHT RUB TO THE TIP ENDS, AND THERE IS A MICROSCOPIC NICK TO THE LAMINATE AT THE TOP OF THE LETTER 'D' OF HENDRIX

THE MAIN BODY OF THE FRONT SURFACE IS ABSOLUTELY MINT!!!

THERE IS NO RING WEAR OR RECORD SHAPE EITHER. THIS IS A FABULOUS EXAMPLE OF THIS FRAGILE SLEEVE. THE TOP AND BOTTOM EDGES ARE  UNWORN, WITH ALL OF THE LAMINATE IN PERFECT CONDITION.ONLY THE VERY TIP ENDS OF THE CORNERS HAVE A SMALL SPECK OF RUB

THE SPINE IS ONE OF THE BEST EXAMPLES OF THIS I HAVE EVER SEEN. IT IS PERFECTLY FLAT, AND TOTALLY UNSQUASHED. ALL OF THE LAMINATE IS INTACT, NO PEEL OR FLAKE, AND ONLY THE TOP AND BOTTOM TIP ENDS SHOW A LITTLE SHELF WEAR

THE OPENING EDGES ARE STILL SUPERBLY SHARP WITH JUST A COUPLE OF TINY  THUMB NAIL NICKS ON THE REAR EDGE.

THE REAR SURFACE IS IN THE SAME SUPERB CONDITION AS THE FRONT, AGAIN NO HEAVY CREASES AND JUST A FEW LAMINATE LINES AROUND THE PERIMETER EDGES

OPENING THE GATEFOLD REVEALS TWO ABSOLUTELY PRISTINE INNER PANELS. NO RUBBING OR LOSS OF THE BLACK COLOURS WHATSOEVER, AND ALL OF THE FLIPBACKS ARE PERFECTLY ADHERED WITH JUST A FEW LAMINATE LINES

THE ORANGE 2 PAGE LYRIC INSERT IS IN MAGNIFICENT CONDITION. USUALLY FOUND RIPPED AND BADLY CREASED, THIS COPY IS TOTALLY INTACT AND FREE FROM ANY HEAVY CREASES, JUST A COUPLE OF LIGHT WRINKLES TO THE PAPER, ONE OF THE BEST YOU WILL FIND

THE ORIGINAL POLY LINED INNER SLEEVE IS IN EXCELLENT PLUS CONDITION. TOTALLY FLAT WITH ONE LIGHT CORNER CREASE LINE, AND SOME LIGHT AGEING TO THE PERIMETER EDGES. UNSPLIT AT THE SEAMS A SUPERB ORIGINAL EXAMPLE WITH THE DATE 117 (NOV 67_ IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER PRINTED NEXT TO 'MADE IN ENGLAND'

THIS SLEEVE EASILY GRADES EXCELLENT PLUS!!!!

 

 

GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR BID IF YOU CHOSE TO GO FOR IT

GARRY
