On offer here is a VERY rare LP (especially in this condition!!!!) by Caravan called "If I Could Do It All Over Again, I'd Do It All Over You" and is an ORIGINAL 1970 UK 1st Pressing on the 1st Press Decca label!!!! THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!! THIS IS ONE OF CARAVANS RAREST LPS EVER AND VIRTUALLY NEVER TURNS UP FOR SALE!!!! JUST TRY AND FIND ANOTHER ONE!!!! IT IS ONE OF THE RAREST LPs ON THE DECCA LABEL - AND IS INCREDIBLY HARD TO LOCATE TODAY!!!! BUT WHAT MAKES THIS LP REALLY SPECIAL - IS THAT IT IS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE, WITH A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT COVER & LABELS!!!! AND THIS IS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ON THIS LP!!!! WHEN THIS LP WAS FIRST RELEASED IN 1970, DECCA GAVE IT A FULL RELEASE - WITH THE CAT NUMBER 'SKL 5052'!!!! HOWEVER, WHEN THIS LP COMPLETELY FAILED TO SELL, DECCA DECIDED TO REDUCE THE PRICE, AND ADDED AN 'R' TO THE CAT NUMBER, CHANGING IT FROM 'SKL 5052' TO 'SKL-R 5052' INSTEAD (THE 'R' OF COURSE STANDING FOR 'REDUCED')!!!! AND IF YOU LOOK ON THE LABELS & COVER FOR THIS LP - YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE IT HAS 'SKL 5052' PRINTED (WITH NO 'R'!) - PROVING BEYOND ALL DOUBT THAT THIS WAS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE!!!!
BUT THERE IS ONE MORE DETAIL - THAT YOU WILL ONLY EVER FIND ON THE 'EARLIEST' FIRST 1000 COPIES ONLY!!!! AND THAT IS THAT THIS LP HAD COMPLETELY THE WRONG TITLE PRINTED ON THE COVER BACK!!!! INCREDIBLY, THE BACK COVER TITLE IS COMPLETELY MISPRINTED 'IF I HAD TO DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN' INSTEAD OF THE CORRECT 'I COULD DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN' (SEE PICTURES). QUITE LITERALLY ONLY A FEW HUNDRED COPIES WERE MADE WITH THIS 'INCORRECT TITLE' ON THE COVER BACK - AND IT WAS CHANGED IMMEDIATELY!!!! SO THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT AT ALL - THAT THIS IS THE 'EARLIEST' & RAREST 1ST PRESSING YOU CAN POSSIBLY GET!!!!

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!
