Very rare UK first ES1 STEREO press from 1964 COLUMBIA SAX 2521 "Chopin 24 Preludes" SAMSON FRANCOIS on piano. The cover is excellent to near mint without any issues. The vinyl visually is excellent with only the wispiest of paper removal lines, NO Scratches and a deep as new sheen to the vinyl. I would estimate it has had only a couple of plays during its life. There is just some light crackle to the quieter sections (nothing intrusive) which has probably been there since new, but the audio is otherwise excellent for a 53 year old record with fine depth and richness of sound. Please note, any lines showing on the vinyl in my scans are simply light reflections and not on the record itself. The labels and original inner sleeve are in fine condition. A fine example of a very rare and desirable record which has been well cared for. Reasonable start price and NO RESERVE. The record will be posted recorded delivery in professional heavy duty record mailer for total protection.
