Classic UK Original black Track 1st Press labels!!! Both sides are FANTASTIC with minimal signs of age, NO writing, NO stickers, and NO tears whatsoever!!! Just has a small amount of ultra light spindle marks from general light use over the years!!! AWESOME for a 48 year old record!!! Both must grade overall at least as Very Good+!!!
Record : Visual -
Spectacular Original WITHDRAWN Mail Order only UK 1st Press Vinyl!!! Nice bright, clean and shiny as if it was just pressed!!! Fantastic jet black mirror like surfaces, it looks GREAT for it's age with NO nasty deep scratches whatsoever, and NO deep groove-breaking vicious scuffs whatsoever!!! The only blemishes are just a few light scuff marks, only a few hairline scratches and age marks here and there, a hint of the very slightest tiny edge warp (truly, truly minimal with no effect on playback) and just some of the usual light wispy sleeve traces (only visible in direct angled light) from general use and where it has sat or been removed from it's cover over the years!!! On a modern, thin LP, these marks would possibly be obvious upon play, but because this is such a fantastic ultra thick quality 1st pressing, it plays fine with no trouble AT ALL!!! Used, but definitely AWESOME for a record of this age and rarity!!! Must grade overall at least as 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 mono blast and clarity!!! It really sounds AWESOME with NO hops, distortion, sticks, or skips!!! Only (like pretty much all records) has low level surface noise in places such as on the run in grooves, only a few ultra light ticks here and there on rare occasions, and just a touch of ULTRA mild and light "bluesman's fag" atmospheric static in few and far between places such as on some of the quieter sections, but it doesn't overshadow the music AT ALL!!! I'd even argue it gives it added soul!!! A hugely enjoyable listen - The music is TRULY loud and clear with that bass, depth, warmth and clarity you can only get from UK 1st Press vinyl!!! AWESOME for a record of this age and rarity!!! Must grade overall audiably at least as Very Good+++!!! (graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not trashed or overgraded AT ALL!!! Customer satisfaction is of 100% importance to me)
Original 1970 1st Press WITHDRAWN unlaminated “Polydor Records" sleeve complete with TRUE original “0270” unsplit inner!!! IMPOSSIBLE to find this sleeve in anything approaching a good condition - most are spent, torn and worn due to age and the lifestyles of the buyers of this particular LP!!! This one is NOT, and looks BRILLIANT, especially considering the nature of these fragile sleeves!!! NO tears, NO writing OR graffiti, NO seam splits, and still ULTRA strong and solid after all these years!!! Only has a few mild signs of ageing such as a small amount of light creases and a hint of a record imprint, some minor whitening to parts the seams from where it has sat on the shelf over the years (minimal with absolutely NO splits whatsoever), a few mild signs of other general light ageing such as a touch of ink rubbing in few and far between places (barely any compared to most - absolutely nothing drastic whatsoever), a touch of denting to the four corners which basically ALL vintage LP's 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!!! I tend to bring it down by listing the most minor negatives I can possibly find, but this remains a BRILLIANT sleeve, and a TRUE rarity to find one as fantastic as this - most have been virtually destroyed or are just about being held together, but not this one!!! It remains ultra strong, solid, unsplit and unspoilt, and AMAZINGLY even the spine remains ultra strong, solid, unsplit and totally readable!!! Must grade overall at the least as Very Good!!! (graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not trashed or overgraded AT ALL!!! Customer satisfaction is of 100% importance to me)
Summary : A FANTASTIC sounding example of this iconic INCREDIBLY RARE Mail Order only classic WITHDRAWN UK 1st Press LP!!! Hard to find in ANY condition, but SERIOUSLY RARE TO FIND ONE AS SONICALLY AWESOME 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!
