Item Description

ONE of the first 1001-50,000 pressed worldwide (the first 1000 had a plain pink rear sleeve).  Preserved in new condition, still sealed in original hand applied shrink wrap!   You you may never see another one again...


Media Condition: Mint (M)  
Sleeve Condition: Mint (M)



-  Rare US Import of 1st UK pressing (12" with 11 track sleeve + 7" "Submission" one-sided single)



-  Only a handful of the 11 track LP + 7" one-sided single 1st pressing were exported from the UK for international sale.  This is the only SEALED, MINT 1st press on the market.




-  The bumpy textured appearance of the shrink wrap is authentic to

original hand applied shrink wrapping process of the early 1977 1st pressing of Never Mind the Bollocks.


-  Original GREEN "SPOTS001 sticker":



UK PRESSING

includes
one-sided single

The SPOTS001 (1st pressing ONLY) sticker is applied to the outside of the still sealed shrink wrap.  The UK PRESSING sticker is truncated, and does not show the bottom half due to some exports lacked the bonus poster insert.   Since the US imports did not include a poster, the bottom half of the sticker is cut off and, thus, does not show the SPOTS001 footnote.


-   Shrink wrap also has "imported by Music+" sticker, and "Music Plus $5.99" price tag.
