The ULTRA RARE 'Black & Gold' record labels (see pictures) have NO writing, NO sticker marks, STUNNING clear Gold Print (with absolutely NO fading AT ALL!), NO sticker tears, some VERY minor 'touched in' wear around the centre holes, NO annotations, and only some spindle markings to either label!!!! A VERY NICE SET OF BLACK & GOLD LABELS INDEED - AND SO VERY RARE TO FIND STUNNING CLEAR UNFADED GOLD PRINT FOR ONCE!!!! The vinyl is in GREAT condition - and VERY bright & shiny looking indeed!!!! Most of these 60s LPs had been to a lot of wild parties and are usually found totally worn out, and almost unplayable. This one is NOT and has NO nasty concentric marks AT ALL, only 2 or 3 MEGA light scufflines, NO nasty 'tick' marks AT ALL, only 2 or 3 TINY surface marks, only a few VERY light hairlines, and only a VERY few of the lightest paper scuffs only visible under light!!!! THE RECORD STILL RETAINS ITS ORIGINAL 'JUST PRESSED' LOOK AND RETAINS A SUPERB SHINE!!!! It is great to find that the record plays as STUNNINGLY as the visual with NO skips, only a few VERY light clicks (though mostly NONE!), 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 record must grade Very Good (PROPERLY graded, NOT trashed!) if not better - and is still a very VERY decent record indeed!!!! The record also comes in its ORIGINAL 1st Press 'Patents Applied For' Emitex 'Poly Lined' inner sleeve which is in BRILLIANT condition!!!! The 'E.J.Day' Flipback Laminated MONO Cover is in BRILLIANT condition!!!! It has NO edge wear, NO edge splits, NO spinal wear, NO spine splits, only slight corner wear (with some 'tipping in' to the bottom corners!), NO rips, NO tears, VERY shiny laminate, NO stickers, NO sticker marks, only a few VERY light creases (cover is VERY flat looking indeed!), NO annotations, and NO writing!!!! The opening edge is beautifully straight with barely ANY feathering AT ALL!!!! Even the unlaminated back of the cover is in BRILLIANT condition - with NO grubbyness, NO yellowing, NO flipback loss AT ALL (most do!), NO residue marks, SUPERB flipbacks (apart from some discolouration to the top left flipback edge), NO ringwear, NO rubbing, NO annotations, and NO writing!!!!

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!
