in SUPERB condition!!!! The record is pressed on THICK quality
vinyl. The Cat. No is LBS 83132 on the ORIGINAL 1st Press Blue Liberty
label (see picture) and is a much MUCH rarer UK Stereo 1st Pressing!!!!
The record labels are in AWESOME condition (see pictures) with NO
wear, NO writing, and only 1 TINY spindle trace!!!! IT IS VERY
CLEAR THAT THIS RECORD HAS ONLY EVER BEEN PLAYED ONCE!!!! The vinyl is
in SUPERB 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 scratches, NO hairlines, NO scufflines, only 2 or 3 absolutely ULTRA light surface traces, and
VERY few of the lightest paper scuffs only visible under light!!!! There are also some faint 'bag sweat' traces on 1 side of the record - which seems to be commonly found on this LP and does not affect play. 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 pops, 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 Excellent(Minus) if not better!!!! SUPERB 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 also comes in its ORIGINAL 1st Press inner
sleeve which is in BRILLIANT condition!!!! The ORIGINAL 1st Press
Gatefold Laminated Cover is in absolutely BRILLIANT condition!!!! It has NO rips,
NO tears, NO spinal wear (side words PERFECT!), NO edge wear (apart from some almost INVISIBLE 'touchng in' traces!), NO splits,
only VERY slight corner
wear (NOT through the colour!), VERY shiny laminate for once, only a VERY few light creases (cover is
VERY flat looking indeed!), NO stickers, a couple of manufacturing smudges (these are UNDER the laminate!), NO annotations, and NO
opening edges are beautifully straight with barely ANY feathering AT
ALL!!!! Even the unlaminated inside of the cover is in SUPERB condition with NO grubbyness, NO yellowing, NO ringwear, barely ANY
rubbing AT ALL, and NO writing!!!! The cover must MEGA STRICTLY grade Very Good++++ if
not better - and is very VERY close to a grade above!!!! THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO
FIND LIKE THIS - SO DONT MISS OUT ON THIS INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY!!!!

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!
