many people may already know, I usually end all my
items on Sunday nights (and these will still continue!)!!!! However as I
had quite a few extra items of UTMOST RARITY come in to me this week
(they really are TOP QUALITY, and NOT cheap overstock!) and completely
ran out of time to list them last Sunday - I decided to do a 'one off'
set of listings of Wednesday auctions ending on Wednesday 2nd July!!!! So
PLEASE NOTE that this auction will end late on Wednesday 2nd July (and NOT
Sunday!) - though of course, I will be putting more
auctions on during the week for next Sundays auctions!!!! And please
don’t forget take a look at
my other auctions, as there really is some AMAZING items listed!!!!
Thanks for reading and please take a look at this AMAZING item below:-
offer here is a VERY rare LP (especially in this condition!!!!)
by The Rolling Stones called "Aftermath" and is an
ORIGINAL 1966 UK MONO 1st Pressing on the 1st Press
UNBOXED 'Grooved' Decca label!!!! THIS LP IS
SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!! THIS IS ONE OF
THE ROLLING STONES RAREST LPS EVER - AND VIRTUALLY NEVER TURNS UP FOR
SALE!!!! JUST TRY AND FIND ANOTHER ONE!!!! THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER LPs ON THE DECCA LABEL - AND IS INCREDIBLY TOUGH TO LOCATE TODAY!!!! BUT
WHAT MAKES THIS LP REALLY SPECIAL IS THAT IT IS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST
PRESSING EVER MADE, WITH AN ULTRA RARE 'PURPLE SHADOW' COVER!!!! AND THIS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ON THIS LP!!!!
WHEN THIS LP WAS FIRST RELEASED - THE ORIGINAL DESIGN INCLUDED A
'PURPLE SHADOW' BEHIND THE TITLE 'AFTERMATH' ON THE COVER FRONT (SEE
PICTURES)!!!! HOWEVER, AT THE LAST MINUTE THIS DESIGN WAS DROPPED -
AND THE 'PURPLE SHADOW' ON THE COVER FRONT WAS THEN REMOVED ON ALL
LATER COVERS!!!! BEFORE THIS HAPPENED HOWEVER, AN ABSOLUTELY
TINY FEW LEAKED OUT INTO CIRCULATION - BEFORE IT WAS WITHDRAWN!!!!
AS A RESULT, ONLY AN ABSOLUTELY TINY HANDFUL OF THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST
PRESSINGS ONLY - EVER CAME LIKE THIS (NO MORE THAN A FEW HUNDRED AT THE
VERY MOST!), AND THIS MAKES THIS LP ONE OF THE ALL TIME RAREST ROLLING
STONES EVER MADE!!!! SO THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT AT ALL
- THAT THIS IS THE 'EARLIEST' & RAREST 1ST PRESSING OF THIS
INCREDIBLE LP EVER MADE!!!!
BUT THERE ARE OTHER DETAILS - THAT MAKE THIS LP EVEN RARER STILL, AND QUITE LITERALLY THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE!!!!
AND FOR THOSE WHO DONT KNOW - HERE ARE ALL THE DIFFERENCES BELOW -
WHICH ONLY EXISTED ON THIS 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 'WITHDRAWN' SHADOW COVER
ONLY!!!! HERE ARE THE ALL IMPORTANT DIFFERENCES:-
1) THE TITLE ON THE COVER FRONT HAS A 'PURPLE SHADOW' BEHIND IT (SEE PICTURE) WHICH WAS REMOVED ON ALL LATER PRESSINGS!!!!
2) THE 'LK 4786' CAT NUMBER
ON THE REVERSE IS SET BELOW THE WORD 'MONO' IN THE TOP RIGHT CORNER OF
THE COVER BACK - WHEREAS ON ALL LATER COVERS THE 'LK 4786' TEXT WAS
MOVED TO THE RIGHT!!!!
4) AT THE TOP OF THE COVER BACK ON THIS 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS COVER - THE WORDS 'AFTER-MATH THE ROLLING STONES' ARE MUCH LARGER THAN LATER COVERS!!!!
5) THE BACK COVER PICTURE IS NOTICEABLY SMALLER ON THIS 'SHADOW COVER' AND MADE LARGER ON LATER ISSUES.
6) THE WORDS 'AFTERMATH' AND
'THE ROLLING STONES' ARE SET MUCH HIGHER UP ON THE SPINE ON THIS 'SHADOW
COVER' - WHEREAS ALL LATER ONES HAD THEM SET LOWER. STRANGELY THE
BOTTOM SPINE TEXT 'DECCA MONO LK 4786' ALWAYS REMAINED IN THE SAME
7) ON THIS 'SHADOW COVER' THE
WHOLE COVER IS 'UNDERSIZED' (SLIGHTLY SMALLER THAN ALL LATER COVERS!)
RESULTING IN THE RIGHT HAND 'BOX' ON THE COVER BACK (CONTAINING ALL THE
CREDITS & TRACK LISTINGS!) BEING TOO LARGE AND GOING OFF THE EDGE OF
THE TOP & BOTTOM OF THE COVER. ON ALL LATER COPIES THIS WAS
CORRECTED WITH A 'WHITE BORDER' AROUND THE TOP & BOTTOM OF THE BOX
ON THE COVER BACK.
8) THE PICTURE ON THE COVER
BACK IS NOTICEABLY 'CLEARER' ON THIS 'SHADOW COVER' - WHEREAS ON ALL
LATER COVERS IT IS SLIGHTLY BLURRED.
THESE ARE ALL THE AMAZING DIFFERENCES THAT
THIS 'EARLIEST EVER' COVER CAME WITH - BEFORE IT WAS WITHDRAWN AND
COMPLETELY REDESIGNED!!!! SO THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO
DOUBT AT ALL - THAT THIS IS THE 'EARLIEST', RAREST & MOST SOUGHT 1ST
PRESSING OF THIS LP EVER MADE!!!!
NOT ONLY THAT BUT THIS LP IS IN BRILLIANT CONDITION - AND
HAS BARELY BEEN PLAYED AT ALL!!!! AND THIS REALLY IS INCREDIBLY
RARE ON THIS LP!!!! USUALLY EITHER THE 'SHADOW' COVER OR THE RECORD
INSIDE IT IS DAMAGED OR WORN - AS THIS LP WAS BOUGHT BY THE MOST
FANATICAL ROLLING STONES FANS WHO PLAYED IT TO DEATH!!!! BUT THIS
ULTRA RARE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING HAS REMAINED IN BRILLIANT CONDITION
(BOTH COVER & RECORD!) AND IS ALMOST NEVER SEEN LIKE THIS
NOW!!!! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURES!!!!
THIS IS THE ORIGINAL 1966 UK 'EARLIEST' MONO 1ST

ORIGINAL 1st Press UNBOXED 'Grooved' Decca label (see picture) and is a

IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT THIS RECORD HAS BARELY BEEN PLAYED AT
ALL!!!! The vinyl is in BRILLIANT 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
scufflines, only 2 or 3 MEGA light hairlines, only 2 absolutely
TINY surface marks, and only a VERY few of the lightest paper
scuffs only visible under light!!!! THE RECORD STILL RETAINS
ITS ORIGINAL JUST PRESSED LOOK AND SHINES LIKE NEW!!!! It is also
GREAT to find that the record plays as STUNNINGLY as the
visual!!!! The record plays with NO skips, barely ANY clicks
AT ALL, NO sticking, NO jumps, and barely ANY crackle AT ALL!!!!
The sound quality is simply SUPERB with NO distortion and NO groovewear
either!!!! The record must grade Very Good+++ if not
better!!!! 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 comes in its ORIGINAL 1st Press
inner sleeve which is in SUPERB condition!!!! The ULTRA RARE
'Earliest' 1st Press 'Robert Stace' Laminated 'Purple Shadow' Cover is
in BRILLIANT condition!!!! It has NO edge wear, NO spinal wear,
only VERY slight corner wear (NOT through the colour!), NO rips, NO
tears, only a few VERY light creases (cover is VERY flat
looking!), only the usual line of laminate lifting along the spinal
edge, NO splits, shiny laminate, NO annotations, NO yellowing, and NO
writing!!!! The opening edge is beautifully straight with barely
ANY feathering AT ALL!!!! Even the unlaminated back of the
cover is in BRILLIANT condition with NO ringwear, only 1 TINY
grubby mark to the EXTREME right, barely ANY rubbing AT ALL, NO
grubbyness, NO yellowing, and NO writing!!!! The cover must
grade grade Very Good+++ if not better!!!! THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS - SO DONT MISS OUT ON THIS INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY!!!!
I supported with the description of a guy i bought this rare lp from couple of years ago. Everything was checked by me and only I can do is to confirm above information saying that gradig of the vinyl is really very conservative.
Thanks for looking! Cheers!!!!!
