Item Description

Welcome to the Parlogram Store, our outlet for quality vintage vinyl & memorabilia Everything we offer is FULLY GUARANTEED, so please buy with confidence


This legendary UK 1st pressing of his 2nd studio album dates from initial April 1957 release on the HMV label: CLP 1105

Matrix numbers: G2-WP-7207-2N & G2-WP-7208-1N
Stamper codes: 1,2/L & 1/GD
Vinyl weight: 153g

The disc is housed in a fully laminated 'WRW' printed flipback cover.

Complete with its original poly-lined inner-sleeve.


This cherished disc has been played many times but on good equipment only - something rare for this album. Both playing surfaces are clean & glossy with a couple of aged fingermarks being the primary sign of its 59 years. The sound quality overall is clean & clear with none of the groovewear or crackle which spoils so many copies of this masterpiece. The disc's only significant faults are: a feelable 3cm scratch on track 1 of side 1 which causes some intermittent clicks on that track, and a single damaged groove at the end of track 1 on side 2 which caused our stylus to repeat that groove. However without these two blemishes it would be visually & audibly a strong 'EXCELLENT'. 

  Cover: VERY GOOD

As with the disc, this is a respectable example of this striking but extremely fragile cover. The front panel retains a vibrant high-gloss laminate bearing just a hint of storagewear rubbing and a few small edge wrinkles. There is a 3cm repaired tear to the front opening edge  but nothing further to fault. The rear panel is clean & unblemished with slight wear to the upper flipover and two further repaired tears to the rear opening edge. Both upper and lower seams are smooth, unstressed & unsplit. The spine has some minor wear but the all-important wording is complete and undamaged.

Inner-sleeve: EXCELLENT
