Item Description

DESCRIPTION: Black Sabbath - Paranoid. Complete, original 1st UK pressing with 1Y1/2Y1 matrix, large swirl label, matt gate fold sleeve with Big Bear credit and Vertigo swirl inner dated 04/70. Packed this weighs over 500gm so overseas postage is for a double. All postage costs include insurance and top quality packaging. LABEL AND CATALOGUE NUMBER: Vertigo 6360 011 YEAR OF RELEASE: 1970 COUNTRY OF RELEASE: UK CONDITION (VINYL/COVER): EX/VG. Vinyl is really clean with a nice dark sheen. Best looking and sounding copy of this I have seen in recent years. Played in its entirety tonight on my budget deck, Sits flat on the turntable. Sounds Excellent and very often better. It really sounds great. "Planet Caravan" plays really cleanly and clearly. "Hand Of Doom" is another song that is usually very hard to get playing cleanly but this again, sounds pretty stunning. It has 6 or 7 very soft ticks only as the music fades and it runs into "Rat Salad".  There is no background sound or crackle, even between the tracks. Cover is in decent shape . It is firm and square and has near heavy edge wear, corner wear and a little more than  light creasing. Clean inside to gate fold. No writing at all. Original swirl inner is in nice shape. Clean and white with no edge splits and only light wear. Poly is still fully attached.  No tears around centre. Immaculately clean Vertigo swirl labels- check out the photos. No writing, rips, stickers or sticker tears. Fantastic sounding and decent looking complete 1st UK pressing. PLEASE CHECK OUT MY OTHER SABBATH/PUNK/METAL/CLASSIC/HARD ROCK LISTINGS IN MY EBAY SHOP. Grading system: I use UK’s “Record Collector” Grading system. I DO PLAY EVERY RECORD I LIST NOW even though its often just quite briefly. Please bear in mind you may get a touch of background sound, even if its just on intros and between the tracks on 30-40 year old vinyl records!! :: MINT: The record itself is in brand new condition with no surface mark or deterioration in the sound quality. The cover and any extra items such as the lyric sheet, booklet or poster are in perfect condition. EXCELLENT: The record shows some signs of having been played, but there is very little lessening in the sound quality. The cover and packaging might have slight wear and/or creasing. VERY GOOD: The record has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticeable surface marks and the occasional light scratch. Normal wear and tear on the cover, or extra items, without any major defects, is acceptable. GOOD: The record has been played so much that the sound has noticably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and mild scratches. The cover and contents suffer from folding,scuffing of edges, spine splits, discoloration etc. I will at times use a + or - to indicate when a record falls between the grades.
