IMPOSSIBLY RARE 1967 CONCEPT PSYCH CLASSIC COMPLETE WITH ORIGINAL STICKERED SLEEVE AND OUTRAGEOUSLY RARE 1/500 DAY OF RELEASE EX+ ORIGINAL OSIRIS POSTER!!! BARELY ANY SURVIVE, EVEN LESS LIKE THIS!!!
A true, true classic album, and one of, if not THE first sort of "concept" albums to have ever been written with most tracks linked with cool parody 60's radio adverts!!! To find a UK Mono 1st Press on it's own is INCREDIBLY difficult in itself (and the mono is definitely THE mix to have), but one with the IMPOSSIBLY RARE poster? PHENOMENALLY DIFFICULT!!!
Only 500 of these posters were ever made, and I'd be MASSIVELY surprised if any more than a small fraction have survived, especially in such OUTSTANDING shape!!! (AND the poster is a 100% genuine 1967 rough back/smooth front original, NOT one of these cheap reissue knock-offs often doing the rounds!!! BEWARE of counterfeits - it's like buying a fake £10 note!!!) The vinyl is also in BRILLIANT condition and sounds utterly AWESOME!!!
One of the VERY RAREST 60's collectors items of all time!!! A classic album from one of the best bands to ever walk the earth!!! A truly FANTASTIC and historic Mod LP that's just so hard to find as a true day of release example complete with the original Osiris poster!!! Do not miss out on this opportunity to own a true one-off piece of rock history, bid now!!!
About : Ultra Rare Original 1967 UK 1st Press!!! This MASSIVELY RARE LP initially sold barely anything (LP's were also really expensive to most people back then!!!) and therefore had a very small run, and is INCREDIBLY HARD TO FIND, especially in this condition!!! AN absolute classic LP from this incredible band!!! An astonishing album that really DESERVES to be in EVERY serious 60's / 70's record collection!!! Don't miss out on this MEGA RARE LP!!! If you like good music, bid now!!!
Classic UK 1st Press black Track labels!!! Both sides are FANTASTIC with NO real signs of age, NO stickers, and NO tears whatsoever!!! Just has a very small amount of ultra light spindle marks which suggests that this hasn't had much play over the years at all!!! AWESOME for a 50 year old record!!! Both must grade overall at least as Very Good++++!!!
Record : Visual -
Spectacular Original 1967 UK 1st Press Vinyl!!! Nice bright, clean and shiny as if it was just pressed!!! Fantastic jet black mirror like surfaces, it looks AWESOME with NO really nasty scratches, groovewear, or nasty deep scuffs whatsoever!!! The only blemishes are just some light wispy sleeve traces, a few mild hairlines and age marks, and just a small amount of cosmetic non-sounding scuffs (only visible in direct angled light) mostly caused from where it has sat or been removed from it's cover over the years!!! Of course, none of these ULTRA light blemishes interfere with play AT ALL thanks to the deeply pressed quality!!! FANTASTIC for a record of this age and rarity!!! Must grade overall at least as Very 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 mono blast and clarity!!! It really sounds incredible with NO hisses, hops, distortion, skips OR sticks!!! Only like pretty much ALL records has just a small amount of ultra light ticks here and there on rare occasions, and just the MEREST TOUCH of low level static in the rarest few and far between places such as on the run in grooves and between some tracks, but that's truly about it!!! The vast, vast, majority of the music is TRULY crystal clear - It really does mostly play with a CD-like near black silence, but with that depth, bass, warmth and clarity you can only get from UK 1st Press vinyl!!! EVEN most of the quiet sections!!! Absolutely ESSENTIAL!!! FANTASTIC for a record of this age and rarity!!! Must grade overall audibly at the least as Excellent minus!!! (graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not trashed or overgraded AT ALL!!! Customer satisfaction is of 100% importance to me)
Original UK 1st Press laminated E.J Day "patents pending" sleeve complete with original sticker perfectly attached, original unsplit inner and IMPOSSIBLY RARE ORIGINAL OSIRIS POSTER!!! (only 500 were EVER made, and this one is FANTASTIC!!! NO pin holes, tack marks, stains, dulling, writing, OR graffiti in sight!!! It’s never ever been hung up and only has some general incredibly light vague handling creasing to show of it’s 50 years - UNBELIEVABLE for a poster of this age and rarity!!! EX+)!!! 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 AWESOME, especially considering the nature of these fragile sleeves!!! NO tears, NO bad marks AT ALL, NO seam splits, and still ULTRA strong and solid after all these years!!! Only has a few ULTRA mild signs of ageing such as a small amount of ultra light creases and a hint of a record imprint, a little laminate lifting along the front spine and only the very lightest general laminate glazing from general storage (truly minimal - absolutely nothing drastic), a touch of denting to the four corners which basically EVERY vintage sleeve has, and POSSIBLY (to be safe!!!) 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 listing every single negative I can possibly find, but this remains a BRILLIANT sleeve, and it's 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!!! The colours remain vibrant, and it remains ultra strong, solid, unsplit and unspoilt, and even the spine remains ultra strong, solid, unsplit and 100% readable!!! Must grade overall 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 FANTASTIC 100% complete example of this ULTRA RARE classic true 1st Press LP complete with the PHENOMENALLY RARE original psychedelic poster!!! Hard to find in ANY condition, but simply IMPOSSIBLY RARE TO FIND ONE AS OUTSTANDING AS THIS!!! YOU MAY 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!
