A quite tidy copy here of arguably one of the rarest Stones albums world-wide to get hold of …. the South African edition and the 1st ‘mono’ pressing on the red ‘unboxed’ Decca label.

This hardly ever seen and highly sought after LP was issued with a slightly alternate track-listing from UK’s “Rolling Stones No.2” together with a unique and quite fetching picture cover.

Most Stones collectors will agree that this rates right up there as one of the rarest Stones records and near impossible to find in any half-decent shape. Fortunately this one rates better than average and plays through remarkably well.

A comparison of the groups Decca labels shows this South African design to be unique in many ways and an added bonus to the avid collector.


CONDITION : - see 4 photos above
Vinyl : A nice thick piece here at over 160 grams and while it has been enjoyed it certainly hasn’t been overly-played. A number of light marks though it tracks along fine with a great clean sound. I detected minimal background noise with a small number of very faint or light pops that barely rate a mention. Certainly no intrusively loud clicks, no skips and a really pleasing warm sound throughout. I just listened to Side 1 again and gee it is really good, great quality from beginning to end. I then gave it a flip and Side 2 is much the same …. a magic playback from ‘Down the Road Apiece’ through to ‘I Wanna Be Your Man’. It should be noted that there is a small off-colour streak or patch on Side 2 near the end of ‘Down the Road Apiece’ which has no effect on the sound quality that I could determine. How it got there or what it is I have no idea however you can see from the photo above it is not cause for any real concern Overall rating is a strong VG+.
Labels : Clean. No spindle marks.
Sleeve : An excellent example considering these South African covers are flimsily constructed. The front cover here is fully laminated extending to the fold-over rear cover flaps. The front is clean and vibrant and the non-laminated back cover is simply superb … no marks, no writing, no edge-wear and no splits or ring-wear. The spine is intact and I don’t imagine you’ll come across a better sleeve than this for some time, if ever.


POSTAGE COSTS (albums are professionally packed and shipped with an outer protector plastic sleeve) :
To anywhere in Australia is AU$8.00. For 2 or 3 x LP’s the cost is $15.00.
For extra items costs will depend upon weight and destination however I will do my best to keep the combined total at a minimum.

1st class Air-Mail overseas ( I imagine Registered Post will be required for this item which will be few dollars extra and will be advised upon checkout) :

Please note I no longer post to Italy, France, Greece or to the Russian Federation.
