IMPOSSIBLY RARE 1967 CONCEPT PSYCH CLASSIC COMPLETE WITH ORIGINAL UK 1ST PRESS “FREE PSYCHEDELIC POSTER” STICKER STILL ATTACHED TO SLEEVE AND EXTRA POSTER!!! AWESOME AUDIO!!!
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 if that wasn’t enough, this also includes the BRILLIANT quality poster from the official 2015 re-issue, pressed directly from the original artwork!!! You may wonder why it's included? Well, this is a fantastic chance to own this ULTRA RARE 1st Press Mono classic (the cover, inner, record AND mega rare sticker are all 100% original from 1967) with the INCREDIBLE extra poster at a much cheaper price than if the poster was a 1967 1st Press original!!! The quality of the poster is AWESOME - an untrained eye could not tell the difference, and this one is totally MINT unused!!! It really does complete this outstanding LP in every way!!! The poster included here is genuine & official, and this really is an incredibly rare chance to own a FANTASTIC mono 1st Press of this classic with this INCREDIBLE poster at a cheaper price than the huge fortune required to own an Osiris 1967 original!!!
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 mono!!! 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 writing, NO stickers, and NO tears whatsoever!!! Just has a small amount of ultra light spindle marks which suggests that this hasn't had too much play over the years at all!!! AWESOME for a 51 year old record!!! Both must grade overall at least as Very Good++!!!
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 GREAT for it's age with NO nasty deep scratches whatsoever, and NO deep groove-breaking vicious scuffs whatsoever!!! The only blemishes are just a few light scuff marks, a few light hairlines and age marks here and there, and just some of the usual light wispy sleeve traces (only visible in direct angled light) from general use and where it has sat or been removed from it's cover over the years!!! On a modern, thin LP, these marks would possibly hinder play, but because this is such an ultra thick quality 1st pressing, it plays fine with no trouble AT ALL!!! BRILLIANT for a record of this age and rarity!!! Must grade overall as Very Good minus!!! (graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not overgraded AT ALL!!! Customer satisfaction is of 100% importance to me!!!)
Record : Audio -
Thankfully, it plays BRILLIANTLY with fantastic mono blast and clarity!!! It really sounds awesome with NO hisses, hops, skips OR sticks!!! Only like pretty much ALL records has just a mere touch of the lightest crackle here and there, only a few light ticks here and there on rare occasions, and a hint of low level ultra light "bluesman's fag" atmospheric static in few and far between places such as on some of the quieter sections like the run in grooves and between some tracks e.t.c, but it TRULY doesn't overshadow the music AT ALL!!! I'd even argue it gives it added soul!!! And that's truly about it!!! The vast, vast majority of the music is ultra clear and sounds ABSOLUTELY AWESOME with that bass, depth, warmth and clarity you can only get from 1st Press UK vinyl!!! An outstanding listen! Absolutely ESSENTIAL!! BRILLIANT for a record of this age and rarity!!! Must grade overall audibly as Very Good++!!! (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 sleeve complete with original inner, original sticker still attached, and the poster is totally as new and has clearly never been used with zero signs of handling - NO pin holes, tack marks, creasing, stains, dulling, writing OR graffiti in sight!!! 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 GREAT, especially considering the nature of these fragile sleeves!!! NO really bad marks AT ALL, NO seam splits, and still ULTRA strong and solid after all these years!!! Only has a few mild signs of usual ageing such as some creasing and a touch of a record imprint, a little laminate lifting along part of the front spine (nothing drastic) and just a little ruffling to the very bottom left of the sticker, 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 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!!! 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 : An AWESOME sounding example of this ULTRA RARE classic true 1st Press LP complete with poster and original sticker!!! Hard to find in ANY condition, but simply IMPOSSIBLY RARE TO FIND ONE AS BRILLIANT 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!
