On offer here is a VERY rare LP (especially in this condition!!!!)
by The Zombies called "Odessey & Oracle" and is an ORIGINAL 1968 UK 1st Pressing on the 1st Press Orange CBS labels!!!! THIS LP IS
SERIOUSLY RARE AND ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!! THIS IS ONE OF THE
ZOMBIES RAREST LPs EVER - AND VIRTUALLY NEVER TURNS UP FOR SALE!!!!
JUST TRY AND FIND ANOTHER ONE!!!! BACK IN 1968 WHEN THIS LP WAS FIRST
RELEASED - IT ONLY EVER SOLD IN ABSOLUTELY TINY AMOUNTS, AND WAS ALMOST IMMEDIATELY DELETED!!!! AS A
RESULT IT IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND INCREDIBLY HARD TO LOCATE TODAY!!!! BUT WHAT MAKES THIS LP REALLY SPECIAL IS THAT IT IS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE!!!! AND THIS IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ON
THIS LP!!!! THOUGH THIS LP SOLD POORLY, IT WAS AVAILABLE ON THE CBS LABEL UNTIL LATE 1970. THIS IS SHOWN BY MANY CBS COMPILATION LPs OF THE TIME - WHERE IT IS ADVERTISED FOR PURCHASE INSIDE!!!! NOT ONLY THAT - BUT WITH THE HUGE SUCCESS OF 'TIME OF THE SEASON' IN 1969 (OVER ONE YEAR AFTER THIS LP WAS FIRST RELEASED), MOST COPIES WERE PURCHASED IN 1969 AND NOT 1968 - AND ARE CLEARLY LATER PRESSINGS!!!! FIRST EXAMPLE ANY COPIES WITH 'GOLD STEREO' STICKERS DATE FROM 1969 (AND NOT 1968!) AND WERE MADE 1 YEAR AFTER RELEASE!!!! AND ANY COPIES WITH SMOOTH LABELS WERE AGAIN MADE IN LATE 1969/EARLY 1970 - AND NOT 1968!!!! AND THIS IS PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT WITH STEREO PRESSINGS OF THIS LP!!!! BECAUSE WHEN THIS LP WAS FIRST RELEASED IN 1968 - MONOs WERE STILL MASSIVELY OUT SELLING STEREOs. THEREFORE AT LEAST 80% OF 100% GENIUNE 1968 1ST PRESSINGS WERE MADE IN MONO - WITH BARELY ANY IN STEREO AT ALL!!!! WHEREAS IN 1969 WHEN THIS LP WAS RE-PRESSED, STEREOs WERE FAR MORE COMMON!!!! SO IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND A 100% GENIUNE 'EARLIEST' STEREO 1ST PRESSING FROM 1968 (WITH THE 'RED STEREO' PRINT - AND NOT THE LATER GOLD STICKER!) - AS ONLY A FEW HUNDRED COPIES WERE EVER MADE!!!! THIS IS UNDOUBTEDLY THE ALL TIME RAREST & 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE (AND AT LEAST 5 TIMES RARER THAN ANY OTHER VERSION!)!!!!
NOT ONLY THAT, BUT THIS LP IS IN GREAT CONDITION (WITH A BRILLIANT RECORD!)!!!! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT
PICTURES!!!! THIS IS THE ORIGINAL 1968 UK 'EARLIEST' 1ST
PRESSING ON THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST
PRESS 'FULLY TEXTURED' ORANGE CBS LABEL, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS
CBS ADVERTISING INNER SLEEVE, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 'RED STEREO' PRINT ON THE REVERSE OF THE COVER, AND 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 'E.J.DAY' LAMINATED
COVER!!!! THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS - SO DONT MISS OUT ON THIS
AMAZING OPPORTUNITY!!!! This is the ORIGINAL CBS UK 1st Pressing
from 1968 and is in GREAT condition!!!! The record is pressed
on THICK quality vinyl. The Cat. No is SBPG 63280 on the ORIGINAL 1st
Press Orange CBS label (see picture) and is a much MUCH rarer UK Stereo 1st Pressing!!!!
The record labels are in SUPERB condition (see pictures) with NO
writing, NO wear (apart from a TINY touch around the centre holes!), NO tears, NO stickers, and only some spindle marks to either label!!!! The
vinyl is in BRILLIANT condition!!!! Most of these 60s/70s LPs had been to a
of wild parties and are usually found totally worn out, and almost
unplayable. This one is NOT and has NO scratches, NO
hairlines, only 2 or 3 VERY light
scufflines, only 2 or 3 TINY surface marks, and only a VERY few of the lightest paper scuffs only
visible under light!!!! ITS AS SIMPLE AS THAT!!!! 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
with NO skips, barely ANY clicks, NO sticking, NO jumps, barely ANY crackle AT ALL, and only
some EXTREMELY low level background sound on the run on grooves & gaps -
NOT in the music AT ALL!!!!
The sound quality is simply SUPERB with NO distortion and NO groovewear
either!!!! The record must grade Very Good++ if not better!!!! BRILLIANT RECORD!!!!
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 CBS advertising inner sleeve which is in
BRILLIANT condition!!!! The ORIGINAL 1st Press 'E.J.Day' Laminated
is in GREAT condition!!!! It has NO splits, NO edge wear (apart from some almost INVISIBLE 'touching in' traces to the bottom edge!), NO edge splits, NO spine splits, barely ANY spinal wear, NO pinholes, only
slight corner wear (NOT through the colour!), VERY shiny laminate,
NO rips, NO tears, a few creases (though these are main confined to the VERY edges - and the cover is VERY flat
looking!), NO annotations, and NO
writing!!!! The opening edge is beautifully straight with barely ANY
feathering AT ALL!!!! Even the unlaminated cover back is in BRILLIANT condition with NO sticker marks, NO sticker tears, a TINY residue trace on the opening edge (NOT yellowed and VERY small indeed!), NO tape marks, NO grubbyness, NO
yellowing, NO ringwear, barely
ANY rubbing AT ALL (apart from a TINY touch towards the VERY top!), and NO writing!!!! The cover must
grade Very Good (PROPERLY graded, NOT trashed!) if not
better - and is still a very VERY decent cover indeed!!!! THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY
IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS (ESPECIALLY AS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE!) - SO DONT MISS OUT
ON THIS INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY!!!!

Though there are rarely ever any problems with my items (I always try my very best to describe everything exactly!) - PLEASE REMEMBER to contact with me FIRST, if you have any problems at all, before you leave feedback and star ratings, so I get a chance to turn any negative experience into a positive one!

Please do NOT bid if you cannot give me at least 1 chance to sort everything out to your FULL satisfaction in the unlikely event of a problem. Thanks again - Graham @ XXXRecords. 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!
