NOT ONLY THAT BUT THIS DOUBLE LP IS IN BRILLIANT CONDITION!!!! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURES!!!! THIS IS THE ORIGINAL 1968 UK 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING ON THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS TRACK LABELS, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 'UPSIDE DOWN' MATRIXES ON THE LABELS, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 1/1/1/1 MATRIXES, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 'DATE CODED' INNER SLEEVES, AND ULTRA RARE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 'E.J.DAY' FULLY LAMINATED 'BLUE TEXT' GATEFOLD COVER (WITH 'LARGER PICTURES' & 'BLUE TEXT' ON THE INSIDE OF THE COVER!)!!!! THIS DOUBLE LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS - SO DONT MISS OUT ON THIS AMAZING OPPORTUNITY!!!! This is the ORIGINAL Track UK 'Earliest' 1st Pressing from 1968 and is in BRILLIANT condition!!!! The records are pressed on THICK quality vinyl. The Cat. No is 613 008/9 on the ORIGINAL 1st Press 'Matt' Track Labels (see picture) and is a Stereo 1st pressing (there were NO Monos)!!!!
The record labels to BOTH records are in SUPERB condition (see pictures) with NO writing, NO wear, and only a few VERY light spindle marks!!!! The vinyl is in BRILLIANT condition!!!! Most of these 60s Double LPs had been to a lot of wild parties and are usually found totally worn out, and almost unplayable. These records are NOT and BOTH records have NO scratches, only 2 or 3 light hairlines, only 2 or 3 VERY light scufflines, and only a VERY few of the lightest paper scuffs only visible under light!!!! ITS AS SIMPLE AS THAT!!!! BOTH RECORDS STILL RETAIN THEIR ORIGINAL 'JUST PRESSED' LOOK AND SHINE LIKE NEW!!!! It is great to find that BOTH records play as STUNNINGLY as the visual with NO skips, barely ANY clicks AT ALL, NO sticking, NO jumps, barely ANY crackle AT ALL, and only some slight background sound on the run on grooves & gaps - NOT in the music AT ALL!!!! The sound quality itself is simply SUPERB with NO groovewear, and NO distortion either!!!! BOTH records must grade Very Good++ if not better!!!! A VERY VERY NICE SET OF RECORDS INDEED!!!! Believe me these records are NOT overgraded in ANY way!!!! I use STRICT RC grading standards - it is not in my interest not to!!!! Brillant!!!! The records also come in their ORIGINAL 1st Press 'Date Coded' inner sleeves which are both in BRILLIANT condition!!!! The ULTRA RARE 'Earliest' 1st Press 'E.J.Day' FULLY Laminated 'Blue Text' Gatefold Cover is in GREAT condition - and is a very VERY decent cover indeed, with absolutely NO major defects AT ALL!!!! It has NO edge wear, NO edge splits, NO spinal wear (apart from 2 or 3 almost INVISIBLE 'touched in' traces!), NO spine splits, only slight corner wear (NOT through the colour!), NO rips, NO tears, only a few VERY light creases (cover is VERY flat looking!), slight laminate dulling (with the expected light record impressions), only some very VERY minor evidence of 'tipping in' to the corners, NO annotations, and NO writing!!!! For some reason one opening edge has a slight overlap - and the other opening edge does not!!!! My first thought was that someone might have trimmed one opening edge, but on closer examination - BOTH opening edges meet up together PERFECTLY, and there is laminate shrinkage to ALL opening edges!!!! So clearly it must be a VERY minor manufacturing detail - which most people would never notice anyway!!!! The opening edges are beautifully straight with barely ANY feathering AT ALL!!!! Even the laminated inside of the cover is in BRILLIANT condition with NO grubbyness, NO yellowing, VERY shiny laminate, and NO writing!!!! The cover must grade Very Good+ if not better!!!! THIS DOUBLE LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS (ESPECIALLY AS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE!) - SO DONT MISS OUT ON THIS INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY!!!!HAVE A LOOK AT MY PICTURES - I DO MY BEST TO SHOW THE RECORD FROM ALL ANGLES AND MAKE THE PICTURES AS CLEAR AS POSSIBLE - THERE IS NOTHING TO HIDE!!!!

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!
