Motorhead - Debut LP on Vinyl with original limited edition Silver Print Cover -.
This it ! The ultimate Motorhead collectors' item.First issue of first album, one of a very limited run with silver print cover. My thanks to the originator for the following information;
This the original 1977 Silver print sleeve Motorhead debut album. Chiswick records - WIK 2.
Matrix codes (etched): WIK-2 A-1 / WIK-2 B-1It is often claimed that only 600 copies of the "silver" were printed; this is not true. 1000 were made, but the manufacturing process was only partially successful because of problems with the glue not adhering to the foiling - so over 400 were destroyed. It was estimated (I think by Chiswick Record's Ted Carroll) that there are only around 500 still in existence.
Oddly the original "silver" cover has less misprints on the back than the later "white" version. (ie, no "Lensy" or "Keepers" misprints but still has "Kilminster" and "Viborator" misprints).
Another silver print copy of this album sold on Discogs (09 March 2020) for over £1800.00.The last couple on ebay last year have both gone for over £ 1,000 each (Look it up !!)
Condition:Cover: VG (has some ring wear and very light creasing. Spine has small amount of tearing. The silvering is as you would expect after 43 years. See pics for a better idea of condition.)Vinyl: EX (looks great - microfiber surface scratches only visible in bright sunlight. Small amount of occasional static can be heard but this can probably be removed with a clean).Inner sleeve: EX+ (looks new)
I have owned this since newCondition is "Used". Dispatched with Royal Mail 1st Class.
