About : Ultra Rare Original 1969 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 blue "Unboxed" Decca labels!!! Both sides are OUTSTANDING with NO real signs of age, NO graffiti, and NO writing OR tears whatsoever!!! Just has an absolutely TINY amount of ultra light spindle marks which suggests that this has barely been played at all!!! IMPOSSIBLE for a 48 year old record!!! Both must grade overall at least as Excellent++!!!
Record : Visual -
Spectacular Original UK 1st Press Vinyl!!! Nice bright, clean and shiny as if it was just pressed!!! Fantastic jet black mirror like surfaces, it looks ASTONISHING with NO nasty marks, NO scuffs, NO scratches, NO fingerprints, and NO groovewear whatsoever!!! The only blemishes off TRUE perfection are only a TINY amount of ULTRA light, wispy sleeve traces (only visible in mega strong angled light) 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!!! Most probably wouldn't/couldn't even mention them!!! UNBELIEVABLE for a record of this age and rarity!!! You'll be amazed by how clean and unworn it is!!! Must grade overall visually at least as Excellent++!!! (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 like pretty much ALL records has the very RAREST quiet isolated tick here and there, and possibly 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 play with a CD-like near 100% black silence, but with that bass, depth, clarity and warmth you can only get from original UK vinyl!!! EVEN the quiet sections!!! Absolutely ESSENTIAL!!! ASTONISHING for a record of this age and rarity!!! Must grade overall audibly at least as Excellent+++!!! (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 front laminated “printed in England” sleeve complete with MEGA RARE perfect sticker and original unsplit ultra clean custom blue uncensored inner (FANTASTIC condition with only a little light storage creasing - NO discolouration OR seam splits whatsoever), IMPOSSIBLY RARE poster (MAGNIFICENT with only the slightest vitually invisible hints of handling to show of it's five decades of existence - clearly NEVER been used with absolutely NO pin holes, discolouration OR stains whatsoever!!!), and OUTRAGEOUSLY RARE Promo book (BRILLIANT condition - 100% intact with all pages perfectly intact and very strongly attached with literally just one or two minor age spots and some ultra minor storage signs and ultra mild handling creases to show of it’s near 50 years!!! NO writing, graffiti, or staple tearing at all!!! OUTSTANDING)!!! 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 INCREDIBLE, especially considering the nature of these fragile sleeves!!! NO tears, NO graffiti, NO seam splits OR edge rubbing, NO bad marks AT ALL, and still ULTRA strong and solid after all these years!!! Only has a miniscule amount of impossibly light signs of ageing such as literally one or two ultra light absolutely tiny edge creases (NO half moons whatsoever) and possibly the merest ghost of a record imprint, possibly one or two of the SLIGHTEST storage scuffs on few and far between places (being very picky here - absolutely NO stains, grubbiness, writing OR graffiti whatsoever - even the back looks as new as well!!! PHENOMENAL), a slight touch of denting to one or two of 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!!! A simply AMAZING sleeve, and a TRUE impossibility to find one as unaged as this - most have been virtually destroyed or are just about being held together, but not this one!!! EASILY one of, if not THE greatest example I have ever seen!!! You simply won't believe that this is 48 years old!!! It remains ultra strong, solid, undulled, unsplit and unspoilt, and even the spine remains ultra strong, solid, totally unsplit, and 100% readable!!! Must grade overall at the least as Excellent+++!!! (graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not trashed or overgraded AT ALL!!! Customer satisfaction is of 100% importance to me)
Summary : An absolutely ASTONISHING 100% complete example of this PHENOMENALLY RARE classic Stereo 1st Press LP complete with IMPOSSIBLE promo book!!! Hard to find in ANY condition, but SERIOUSLY RARE TO FIND ONE AS TRULY UNBEATABLE AS THIS!!!

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!
