This is the
ORIGINAL Track UK 'Earliest' 1st Pressing from 1968 and is in GREAT condition!!!! The records are pressed on THICK quality vinyl. The Cat.
No is 613 008/9 on the ORIGINAL 1st Press 'Matt' Track Labels (see
picture) and is a Stereo 1st pressing (there were NO Monos)!!!!
The record labels to BOTH records are in SUPERB condition (see
pictures) with NO writing, NO wear, and only a VERY few light spindle
marks!!!! IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT THESE RECORDS HAVENT BEEN PLAYED MUCH AT ALL!!!! The vinyl is in GREAT condition - and still VERY bright & shiny looking indeed!!!! Most of these 60s
Double LPs had been to a lot of wild parties and are usually found
totally worn out, and almost unplayable. These records
are NOT and BOTH records have NO nasty concentric marks AT ALL, only 2 or 3 TINY surface marks, only 3 or 4 hairlines,
only 2 or 3 MEGA light scufflines, and only a VERY few of the lightest paper scuffs only visible under light!!!! There is also a small pressing type mark on 1 record - though this only causes a few VERY low level dull surface sounds, and doesnt last long AT ALL!!!! BOTH RECORDS
STILL RETAIN THEIR ORIGINAL 'JUST PRESSED' LOOK AND SHINE LIKE NEW!!!!
It is great to find that BOTH records play as STUNNINGLY as the
visual with NO skips, only a VERY few VERY light clicks (though mostly NONE!), NO sticking, NO jumps, barely ANY crackle AT ALL, and only some slight background sound on the run on grooves & gaps - NOT in the music AT ALL!!!! The sound
quality is simply SUPERB with NO groovewear, and NO distortion
either!!!! BOTH records must grade Very Good (PROPERLY graded, NOT trashed!) if not better - and are still a very VERY decent set of records indeed!!!! Believe me these records are NOT
overgraded in ANY way!!!! I use STRICT RC grading standards - it is not
in my interest not to!!!! Brillant!!!! The records also come in their
ORIGINAL 1st Press 'Square' Poly-lined 'Die-cut' inner sleeves which are both in BRILLIANT condition!!!!
The ULTRA RARE 'Earliest' 1st Press 'E.J.Day' FULLY Laminated 'Blue
Text' Gatefold Cover is in GREAT condition - and is still a very VERY decent cover indeed, with NO major defects AT ALL!!!! It has NO
annotations, only some VERY minor 'touching in' traces to the edges, VERY nice main faces (still with VERY shiny laminate and only a few creases!), NO stickers, some clear evidence of 'touching up' to the spine, NO sticker tears, slight corner wear (NOT through the colour!), NO rips, NO tears, only a
few VERY light creases (cover is VERY flat looking!), VERY shiny laminate, and NO writing!!!! The opening edges are beautifully
straight with barely ANY feathering AT ALL!!!! Even
the laminated inside of the cover is in GREAT condition with NO
grubbyness, a couple of 'indentations' in 2 corners, NO yellowing, shiny
laminate, a few creases, and NO writing!!!! The cover is definitely still a very VERY decent cover indeed - with the clear evidence of 'touching in' to the outside spine (as mentioned above) being the main detail to note. However, this is only on 1 edge (who looks at the spine anyway?) - and this cover has NO major structural defects, and is in very VERY decent order indeed!!!! The cover must MEGA STRICTLY grade Very Good(Minus) (PROPERLY graded, NOT trashed!) if not Very Good!!!! THIS DOUBLE LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY
IMPOSSIBLE TO LOCATE (ESPECIALLY AS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING EVER
MADE!) - SO DONT MISS OUT ON THIS INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY!!!!

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!
