THIS AMAZING OPPORTUNITY!!!! This is the ORIGINAL Sue UK 1st Pressing
from 1965 and is in BRILLIANT condition!!!! The record is pressed on THICK
quality vinyl. The Cat. No is ILP 927 on the ORIGINAL 1st Press Sue
label (see picture) and is a UK MONO 1st Pressing!!!!
The record labels are in SUPERB condition (see pictures) with NO
wear, NO writing, and barely ANY spindle marks AT ALL!!!! IT IS VERY
CLEAR THAT THIS RECORD HAS BARELY BEEN PLAYED AT ALL!!!! The vinyl is
in BRILLIANT condition (apart from 1 detail - see below)!!!! 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, only 2 or 3 MEGA light hairlines, NO
scufflines, and only a VERY few of the lightest paper scuffs only visible
under light!!!! ITS AS SIMPLE AS THAT!!!! THE RECORD STILL RETAINS
ITS ORIGINAL 'JUST PRESSED' LOOK AND SHINES LIKE NEW!!!! However, although I cannot see any reason for this - the first track on Side 2 does have some surface noise in places (though the rest of the LP has NONE!) and the odd click!!!! It is great to
find that the rest of the record plays as STUNNINGLY as the visual with NO pops, NO
sticking, NO jumps, and barely ANY crackle AT ALL!!!! The sound quality
is simply SUPERB with NO distortion and NO groovewear 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 comes in its ORIGINAL 1st Press inner sleeve
which is in BRILLIANT condition!!!! The ORIGINAL 1st Press Flipback Laminated MONO Cover
is in BRILLIANT condition!!!! It has NO edge wear, NO spinal wear, only
VERY slight corner wear (NOT through the colour!), only a few VERY
light creases (cover is VERY flat looking!), VERY shiny laminate, only some very VERY minor evidence of 'tipping in' to the corners, 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, barely ANY yellowing AT ALL, NO rubbing, and NO writing!!!! The cover
must grade Very Good++ if not better!!!! THIS LP IS
SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS - SO DONT MISS
OUT ON THIS INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY!!!!

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!
