Hello! Please note, that this auction will end on late Tuesday January 9th UK time. Of course, I usually end my auctions on Sundays. However, as I still haven't caught up from the New Year period this is impossible. So don't forget to check back before Tuesday January 9th UK time - to see some incredible items! Please read on about this AMAZING item below, and GOOD LUCK if you decide to bid:-
On offer here is a VERY rare LP (especially in this condition!!!!) by The Beatles called "Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band" and is an ORIGINAL 1967 UK MONO 1st Pressing on the 1st Press Yellow & Black Parlophone label!!!! THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!! THIS IS ONE OF THE BEATLES RAREST LPs EVER - AND VIRTUALLY NEVER TURNS UP FOR SALE!!!! JUST TRY AND FIND ANOTHER ONE!!!! IT IS ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER LPs ON THE PARLOPHONE LABEL - AND IS INCREDIBLY HARD TO LOCATE TODAY!!!! THIS LP IS MADE EVEN RARER STILL - AS IT IS 100% COMPLETE WITH ITS ORIGINAL 1ST PRESS INSERT AND 'RED/WHITE' INNER SLEEVE!!!!
AND FOR ONCE WE CAN TELL EXACTLY WHEN THIS LP WAS MADE. NOW AS ANY ONE KNOWS THE 'SGT PEPPER' LP REMAINED IN THE CHARTS FOR WELL OVER A YEAR IN 1967, AND REMAINED COMPLETELY UNCHANGED FROM THE 'DAY OF RELEASE' ON THE 26th MAY 1967 THROUGH TO MID 1968 - WHEN THE INNER SLEEVE WAS DROPPED, AND THE 'KT' TAX CODING WAS REMOVED FROM THE LABELS. SO IT IS NEAR IMPOSSIBLE TO KNOW WHAT DATE A SGT PEPPER LP WAS REALLY MADE. YOU COULD QUITE EASILY BUY A NM COPY SOLD AS A 1ST PRESSING, BUT ACTUALLY IT COULD JUST AS EASILY HAVE BEEN MADE IN MAY 1968 - RATHER THAN MAY 1967!!!! LUCKILY IN THIS CASE, THERE IS HELP FROM THE 1 PREVIOUS OWNER. OF COURSE 'WRITING' IS CONSIDERED AS A BAD THING ON ANY RECORD. BUT IF YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE WRITING - THEN A 'DATE' OR A 'PRICE' IS MOST ACCEPTABLE. SO IN THIS LPs CASE THERE IS THE DATE OF PURCHASE '28/06/1967' NEATLY WRITTEN ON THE INNER SLEEVE (WITH NO WRITING ANYWHERE ELSE!). AND IN THIS LPs CASE - I THINK THIS IS MOST DEFINITELY AN 'ADDED BONUS' - RATHER THAN A DETRACTION!!!! BECAUSE IT TELLS YOU THAT THIS LP IS A 100% GENIUNE UK 1ST PRESSING - WAS WAS BOUGHT IN THE VERY FIRST MONTH OF RELEASE!!!! AND WITH NO OTHER WAY OF KNOWING - YOU CAN IN THIS LPs CASE BE 100% CONFIDENT THAT YOU ARE GETTING A 100% GENIUNE UK 1ST PRESSING, BOUGHT IN THE VERY FIRST MONTH OF RELEASE - WHEN THIS LP WAS AT NUMBER 1 IN THE UK RECORD CHARTS FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME!!!!
NOT ONLY THAT BUT THIS LP IS IN BRILLIANT CONDITION!!!! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURES!!!! THIS IS THE ORIGINAL 1967 UK MONO 1ST PRESSING ON THE 1ST PRESS 'YELLOW & BLACK' PARLOPHONE LABEL, 1ST PRESS 'GRAMOPHONE COMPANY' LABEL EDGE TEXT, 1ST PRESS 'SOLD IN THE UK' LABEL TEXT, 1ST PRESS 'KT' LABEL TAX CODE, 1ST PRESS 1/1 MONO MATRIX ENDINGS, 1ST PRESS 'RED/WHITE' INNER SLEEVE, 1ST PRESS 'CUT-OUT' INSERT, AND 1ST PRESS 'GARROD & LOFTHOUSE' FLIPBACK FULLY LAMINATED MONO COVER!!!!

THE RECORD STILL RETAINS ITS ORIGINAL 'JUST PRESSED' LOOK AND SHINES LIKE NEW!!!! It is also great to find that the record plays as STUNNINGLY as the visual!!!!

The sound quality is simply SUPERB with NO groovewear and NO distortion either!!!! The record must grade Very Good++ if not better!!!! Believe me this record is NOT overgraded in ANY way!!!! I use STRICT RC grading standards - it is not in my interest not to!!!! Brillant!!!! The record also comes in its ORIGINAL 1st Press 'Red/White' inner sleeve which is in BRILLIANT condition!!!!

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!
