WAS ALMOST IMMEDIATELY DELETED!!!! AS A RESULT IT IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND

VERY HIGH UP IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS BACK IN THE LATE 1960s & EARLY
1970s!!!! ALL OF HIS RECORDS WERE RECIEVED DIRECT FROM THE FACTORY AND
STORED OUT OF THE LIGHT (VERTICALLY IN CLOSED BOXES!) AND REMAINED IN
PLASTIC SLEEVES SINCE NEW!!!! ALL WERE COMPLETELY UNPLAYED, OR HAD ONLY HAD ONE OR TWO PLAYS ONLY!!!! AS A RESULT THIS RECORD HAS REMAINED IN
AMAZING CONDITION - AS IT HASNT SEEN THE LIGHT OF DAY SINCE THE YEAR IT
WAS MADE!!!! AND IN THIS LPs CASE - INCREDIBLY, THE RECORD HAS ONLY EVER BEEN PLAYED JUST ONCE (AND IS IN AMAZING CONDITION!), THE INNER SLEEVE IS SIMPLY STUNNING, AND
THE FLIPBACK COVER IS ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!!! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE
PICTURES - THIS IS SURELY ONE OF THE BEST (IF NOT THE BEST!) EXAMPLES LEFT IN EXISTENCE!!!!
THIS IS THE ORIGINAL 1969 UK 1ST PRESSING ON THE 1ST PRESS STAX LABEL, 1ST PRESS 1G/1G MATRIX ENDINGS, 1ST PRESS INNER SLEEVE, AND 1ST PRESS 'GARROD & LOFTHOUSE' FLIPBACK LAMINATED COVER!!!! THIS LP IS

1st Press Stax label (see picture) and is a Stereo 1st Pressing (there were NO Monos!)!!!!
The record labels are in AWESOME condition (see pictures) with NO
writing, and only 1 TINY spindle trace!!!! IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT THIS RECORD HAS ONLY EVER BEEN PLAYED ONCE!!!! The vinyl is
in AWESOME condition!!!! 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 scratches,
NO hairlines, NO scufflines, only 1 absolutely ULTRA light TINY surface trace, and only a VERY few of the VERY lightest paper
scuffs only visible under
light!!!! ITS AS SIMPLE AS THAT!!!! THE RECORD STILL RETAINS ITS
ORIGINAL 'JUST PRESSED' LOOK AND LOOKS AMAZING!!!! It is great to
find that the record
plays as STUNNINGLY as the visual with NO pops, NO sticking, NO jumps, barely ANY crackle AT ALL, and only some EXTREMELY low level background sound on the run on grooves & gaps - NOT in the music AT ALL!!!! The sound quality is simply SUPERB with NO
groovewear and NO distortion either!!!! The record must grade Excellent++++ if not MINT(Minus)!!!! AWESOME RECORD!!!! 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 inner sleeve which is in SUPERB condition!!!! The ORIGINAL
1st Press 'Garrod & Lofthouse' Flipback Laminated Cover is in
absolutely STUNNING condition!!!! It has NO edge wear, NO spinal wear (SUPERB vertical Spine - with PERFECT side words!), barely ANY corner wear AT ALL (NOT through the colour!), NO splits, barely ANY
creases AT ALL (cover is VERY flat looking indeed), NO rips, NO tears, STUNNING shiny laminate, only some very VERY minor evidence of 'tipping in' to the corner tips, NO annotations, and NO
writing!!!! The opening edge is beautifully straight with barely ANY
feathering AT ALL (virtually ZERO!)!!!! Even the back of the cover is in SUPERB condition with
NO grubbyness, NO
yellowing, NO ringwear, NO rubbing, VERY nice flipbacks, and NO writing!!!! The cover must grade Excellent+ if not better!!!! SUPERB COVER!!!! THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS (ESPECIALLY IN THIS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING CONDITION!) - SO DONT MISS OUT ON THIS INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY!!!!

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!
