THE RARITY OF EPs:- EPs were popular in the UK from the early 1950s through the late 1960s. However, they had a few flaws, which makes them especially rare in top condition!!!! Firstly although they had 'LP type' covers - they were much thinner than LP covers, and as a result they creased and tore easily. And secondly EPs were generally treated as '45s' and left lying about, stored with other 45s, or played endlessly in autochangers! SO IT ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND THIS EP IN TOP CONDITION LIKE THIS ONE IS! AND EVEN THOUGH THIS EP IS NOW 57 YEARS OLD - INCREDIBLY THE RECORD IN THIS EP HAS BARELY BEEN PLAYED AT ALL (AND IS IN AWESOME CONDITION!) - AND COUPLED WITH ITS ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT CONDITIONED COVER, MAKES THIS EP VERY VERY RARE INDEED (AND ALMOST NEVER SEEN LIKE THIS NOW!)!

Though there are rarely ever any problems with my items (I always try my very best to describe everything exactly!) - PLEASE REMEMBER to contact with me FIRST, if you have any problems at all, before you leave feedback and star ratings, so I get a chance to turn any negative experience into a positive one! I can always happily sort anything out for you, if you let me know you have a problem! This way no one has to leave Negative/Neutral feedback - and we both walk away happy! Please do NOT bid if you cannot give me at least 1 chance to sort everything out to your FULL satisfaction in the unlikely event of a problem. Thanks again - Graham @ XXXRecords.PLEASE NOTE - Private feedback bidders must consult me first prior to bidding - due to previous problems regarding non-payment, and non-receipt. MY POSTAGE UNDERCHARGE GUARANTEE TO ALL BUYERS (I always undercharge on postage!):- Due to UK Royal Mail's obscene price increases this year - I have had no choice but to increase postage charges a little. Until this year - I had kept them exactly the same since I joined ebay back in 2002. However this years price increases have been so obscene, that I have had no choice but to increase my postage charges for the first time ever. However PLEASE NOTE - my absolute 100% guarantee to you as a buyer - is that I will ALWAYS undercharge postage on everything I send out. Even after the increases, I am still charging you the buyer LESS than I am being charged myself. On each package I send out - the price is clearly stated on the front of the package (please check it when you recieve it!). I also do NOT charge for packaging costs - ONLY for postal costs! And should you find that I have overcharged you postage in ANY way - I will refund DOUBLE the difference. THAT IS MY 100% POSTAL GUARANTEE FOR EACH AND EVERY BUYER! No buyer EVER deserves to be overcharged on postage - and on my listings, I'll make sure they are ALWAYS undercharged. Any questions - please ask!
