This is an original UK 1969 PRESSING of the highly sort after LP by Nick Drake called FIVE LEAVES LEFT. It is on the original "BLOCK LOGO" Pink Island record label. These early pressings are seriously hard to find and so they are highly prized by serious record collectors. To find one condition like this copy right here is impossibly rare. These none laminated original gate fold sleeves are very delicate by their nature and so easily prone to damage. Double click the pictures and to the front you will see slight ware to the top and bottom of the front sleeve and slight edge ware but the green area is still very lush and deep solid in colour so it is still very very presentable. The back of the sleeve with that SUPERB shot of Drake so casual and cool as hes watching the Running man is in great condition. Its only flaw is there is a price written in the top left corner but its really faded so dose`nt spoil the albums appearance. The inside of the sleeve is SUPERB , the black areas are really dark and not spoiled by light fading. The original inner sleeve is present and in excellent condition. Double click the pictures and have a look at those superb "block Iogo" pink island heavily textured record labels, totally superb. The vinyl under a normal light is totally pristine to both sides. Even under a bright spotlight I can only see 1 hairline about 4mm long on track 3 the rest of side 1 is faultless. Side 2 I can not fault at all . Both sides of this LP have a lovely deep gloss sheen that glimmers like mirror when tilted towards the light. This LP is in beautiful condition exceptionally close to mint as can be. You would be very hard pushed to find a better copy. It plays beautifully. Slight static in the dead wax between the tracks but when the music plays its difficult to fault and the playback is deep warm and crystal clear on the extra heavy slab of ENGLISH vinyl. BEAUTIFUL. A RARE RARE ENGLISH ORIGINAL FROM 1969 EXCEPTIONALLY HARD TO LOCATE IN THIS DREAM CONDITION.
A PENNY START AND NO RESERVE !!!!!!
