About : Ultra Rare Original 1970 UK 1st Press!!!

If you like good music, bid now!!!
Classic UK 1st Press orange CBS labels!!! Both sides are FANTASTIC with NO real signs of age, NO writing, NO stickers, and NO tears whatsoever!!! Just has a small amount of ultra light spindle marks which suggests that this hasn't had much play over the years at all!!! AWESOME for a 44 year old record!!! Both must grade overall at least as Very Good+++!!!
Record : Visual -
Spectacular Original 1970 UK 1st Press Vinyl!!! Nice bright, clean and shiny as if it was just pressed!!! Fantastic jet black mirror like surfaces, it looks INCREDIBLE with NO nasty scratches OR nasty deep scuffs whatsoever!!! The only blemishes off perfection are just one or two BARELY VISIBLE totally non-sounding cosmetic scuffs, a few of the lightest, wispy sleeve traces/cleaning lines (only visible in strong angled light) and only one or two ULTRA light hairlines from where it has sat or been removed from it's cover over the years!!! Of course, none of these ULTRA light blemishes affect play much AT ALL!!! PHENOMENAL for a record of this age and rarity!!! You'll be amazed by how generally clean and unworn it is!!! Must grade overall at least as Very Good+++!!! (graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not overgraded AT ALL!!! Customer satisfaction is of 100% importance to me)
Record : Audio -
Thankfully, it plays BRILLIANTLY with fantastic stereo separation and clarity!!! It really sounds incredible with NO hisses, hops, skips, OR sticks!!! Only like pretty much ALL records has only the very slightest crackle on the scarcest of occasions and possibly just the very RAREST quiet tick here and there, and possibly just the MEREST TOUCH of low level static in the rarest few and far between places such as on the run in grooves and between some tracks, but that's truly about it!!! The vast, vast, majority of the music is TRULY crystal clear - It really does mostly play with a CD-like near black silence, but with that depth, bass, warmth and clarity you can only get from UK 1st Press vinyl!!! EVEN most of the quiet sections!!! Absolutely ESSENTIAL!!! ASTONISHING for a record of this age and rarity!!! Must grade overall audibly at the very least as Excellent!!! (graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not trashed or overgraded AT ALL!!! Customer satisfaction is of 100% importance to me)
Original 1970 UK 1st Press front laminated Shorewood "patents pending" sleeve complete with original unsplit CBS advertisement inner!!! IMPOSSIBLE to find this sleeve in anything approaching a good condition - most are spent, torn, worn, and stained due to age and the lifestyles of the buyers of this particular LP!!! This one is NOT, and looks INCREDIBLE, especially considering the nature of these fragile sleeves!!! NO tears, NO writing OR graffiti, NO stains, NO seam wear, NO ringwear, NO splits, NO bad marks AT ALL, and still ULTRA strong and solid after all these years!!! Only has some truly minimal signs of ageing such as just one or two ultra light edge creases (NO half moons), possibly some TRULY minimal signs of ageing on the unlaminated back such as only the very slightest ink rubbing in few and far between places under the closest scrutiny (truly next to zero - unbelievable virtually new condition), possibly the slightest touch of denting to one or two of the four corners which virtually ALL vintage sleeves have, and POSSIBLY (just to be sure!!!) one or two other minor signs of age here and there, though nothing that really stands out to note at all!!! And that's truly about it!!! An utterly MAGNIFICENT sleeve, and a TRUE impossibility to find one as incredible as this - most have been virtually destroyed or are just about being held together, but not this one!!! This is EASILY the best i've EVER seen and will surely ever see!!! AS NEW condition!!! You simply won't believe that this is nearly five whole decades old!!! It remains ultra strong, solid, unsplit and unspoilt, and even the fragile spine remains ultra strong, solid, unworn, unsplit, and 100% readable!!! Must grade overall at least as Excellent++++!!! (graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not trashed or overgraded AT ALL!!! Customer satisfaction is of 100% importance to me)
Summary : An absolutely OUTSTANDING example of this INCREDIBLY RARE original 1970 CBS FOLK CLASSIC Stereo UK 1st Press LP!!! Hard to find in ANY condition, but SERIOUSLY RARE TO FIND ONE AS PHENOMENAL AS THIS!!! YOU MAY NEVER GET THE CHANCE AGAIN, so don't miss out on this scarce opportunity to own a true piece of 60's/70's music history!!! Bid now!!!

I've realized that most countries have their own unique grading system. I base mine strictly on the UK RRPG grading system (occasionally with a + or a - to indicate the higher and lower ends of the grade, though I only use these if i'm having real trouble deciding!), so please check their chart for further clarity if you are unsure of what my grades mean. As a general rule, a mint record will be 100% perfect, an excellent record will be in fantastic clean condition with the occasional mild mark and minor use from the years, and a very good record will have noticeable, yet light visual markings and obvious signs of age and use, but will still remain clean with relatively light wear and will play fantastically well with plenty of life remaining in it. I very rarely offer records below the very good region unless they are of an EXCEPTIONAL rarity and playing quality...I hope this helps!
