Classic UK 1st Press Orange RCA Victor labels Both sides are FANTASTIC with minimal signs of age, NO writing, NO stickers, and NO tears whatsoever Just has a small amount of ultra light spindle marks from general careful light use over the years AWESOME for a 51 year old record Both must grade overall at least as Very Good
Record : Visual -
Spectacular Original 1969 UK 1st Press Vinyl Nice bright, clean and shiny as if it was just pressed Fantastic jet black mirror like surfaces, it looks BRILLIANT with NO nasty scratches, groovewear, or nasty deep scuffs whatsoever The only blemishes are just a few totally non-sounding mild cosmetic paper scuffs, a light bag rash effect from storage and a few of the lightest, wispy sleeve traces/cleaning lines only visible in strong angled light and only a few ULTRA light non sounding hairlines mostly from where it has sat or been removed from it s cover over the years Of course, none of these light blemishes interfere with smoothness of play AT ALL GREAT for a record of this age and rarity Must grade overall at least as Good graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not overgraded AT ALL Customer satisfaction is of 100 importance to me
Record : Audio -
Thankfully, it plays AMAZINGLY with fantastic stereo separation and clarity It really sounds incredible with NO hisses, hops, distortion, skips OR sticks Only has a few light ticks here and there on occasions with low level bluesman s fag static crackle surface noise on quieter sections and between tracks e.t.c, but it doesn t overshadow the music at all I d even argue it gives it added soul mostly buried by the music - more prominent at the start and gets quieter as the sides progress A hugely enjoyable listen - The music is TRULY loud and clear with that depth, warmth, and bass you can only get from a UK 1st Press GREAT for a record of this age and rarity Must grade overall audiably as Very Good graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not trashed or overgraded AT ALL Customer satisfaction is of 100 importance to me
Original UK 1969 1st press front laminated sleeve complete with original unsplit inner IMPOSSIBLE to find this sleeve in anything approaching a good condition - most are spent, torn and worn due to age and the lifestyles of the buyers of this particular LP This one is NOT, and looks BRILLIANT, especially considering the nature of these fragile sleeves NO writing, NO graffiti, NO seam splits, NO really bad marks AT ALL, and still ultra strong and solid after all these years This sleeve only has a few signs of usual mild ageing such as a small amount of ultra light creases and a light touch of a record imprint, only some light age toning and minor rubbing to parts of the still bright and clean unlaminated back minimal and nothing drastic whatsoever - NO coffee cup stains, ugly grubbiness, writing, graffiti or anything like that at all , a touch of denting to the four corners which basically ALL vintage LP s have, and POSSIBLY just to be sure one or two other minor signs of age here and there, though nothing that really stands out to note at all And that s truly about it I tend to bring it down by emphasizing the negatives, but this remains a brilliant sleeve the iconic pictures look AWESOME , and a TRUE rarity to find one as awesome as this - most have been virtually destroyed or are just about being held together, but not this one It remains ultra strong, solid, unsplit and unspoilt, and even the spine remains ultra strong, solid, unsplit and 100 readable Must grade overall at least as Very Good graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not trashed or overgraded AT ALL Customer satisfaction is of 100 importance to me
Summary : A BRILLIANT example of this OUTRAGEOUSLY RARE classic original 1969 UK 1st Press LP Hard to find in ANY condition, but SERIOUSLY RARE TO FIND ONE AS TRULY AWESOME AS THIS YOU WILL NEVER GET THE CHANCE AGAIN, so don t miss out on this scarce opportunity to own a true piece of 60 s/70 s music history Bid now

I ve realized that most countries have their own unique grading system. I base mine strictly on the UK RRPG grading system occasionally with a or a - to indicate the higher and lower ends of the grade, though I only use these if i m having real trouble deciding , so please check their chart for further clarity if you are unsure of what my grades mean. As a general rule, a mint record will be 100 perfect, an excellent record will be in fantastic clean condition with the occasional mild mark and minor use from the years, and a very good record will have noticeable, yet light visual markings and obvious signs of age and use, but will still remain clean with relatively light wear and will play fantastically well with plenty of life remaining in it. I very rarely offer records below the very good region unless they are of an EXCEPTIONAL rarity and playing quality...I hope this helps
