Item Description


This wonderful sounding pressing dates from early 1966 on the black & yellow Parlophone label: PMC 1267

Cut by EMI's legendary classical mastering engineer Hazel Yarwood, this is the finest sounding mono pressing of this album.

Both labels carry the 'Sold in UK...' text and have 'The Gramophone Co...' rims.

Matrices: XEX 579-5 & XEX 580-5

Stamper codes: 2/AH & 1/H

Vinyl weight: 160g

Housed in a front laminated, tri-flipback 'Garrod & Lofthouse' printed mono cover.

Complete with its original rice-paper lined 'Use Emitex...' inner-sleeve.




Both are clean & bright with little more than a handful of light spindle trails around each centre hole.

Visual: MINT -

Immaculate deep-gloss playing surfaces which are 'as new' and unmarked in strong daylight, bearing only a few harmless wispy paper hairlines directly beneath halogen light.

Audio: MINT -

This barely played copy sounds fantastic throughout with no trace of any groove/playwear on any tracks. All of the warmth & details shine through on this masterful cutting. There are no clicks, pops or any other such distractions and just a hint of low-level vinyl background between track. You won't be disappointed with this audio here. 


A clean, strong and richly coloured example which retains all of its high-gloss front laminate with a little storage rubbing, but no 'thumbnails' or creasing. There are no heavy bumps to the corners and just a touch of wear to the front opening edge. The rear panel is clean & white without any writing or missing paper. All flipbacks are fully intact, as are both seams and the full worded spine.

Inner-sleeve: EXCELLENT

Clean & crisp with light storage wrinkles only.
