Let It Bleed -

Rolling Stones


Label: Decca, 

Catalogue No: LK 5025 ( Red Mono ),

Year Of Issue: 1969.

Mega rare 1st pressing on red mono!!!

When these come up for sell the records are normally beat or the sleeve is missing or ripped.

This copy still plays with only minimal background noise and the sleeve and original inner sleeve have no damage!!

Due to the rarity of the album, i feel that it should be given a more complex grading. After listening to the album a few times, there is minimal to slight background noise, with no sign of jumping. I would grade the quieter tracks ( 2 ) as VG ( - ), with slight background noise, most are listenable as VG ( 4 ), with 2 with little or no noise ~ Excellent ( 2 ).

Record is visually graded as 'Very Good'. 

Record overall plays as 'Very Good', no skips or jumps with minimal / slight background noise.

The sleeve is in 'Excellent -' condition, minimal wear with no writing, rips or tears ( please see pictures ).

Vinyl: Very Good,

Sleeve: Excellent -.

A1 Gimmie Shelter

A2 Love In Vain

A3 Country Honk

Records are graded in-line with the 'Rare Record Price Guide'.

MINT: The record itself is in brand new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. The cover and any extra items such as the lyric sheet, booklet or poster are in perfect condition. Records advertised as Sealed or Unplayed should be Mint. 

EXCELLENT: The record shows some signs of having been played, but there is very little lessening in sound quality. The cover and packaging might have slight wear and/or creasing. 

VERY GOOD: The record has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite some surface marks.  Normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items, without any major defects, is acceptable.

GOOD: The record has been played so much that the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and mild scratches. The cover and contents suffer from folding, scuffing of edges, spine splits, discoloration, etc.

FAIR: The record is still just playable but has not been cared for properly and displays considerable surface noise; it may even jump.
The cover and contents will be torn, stained and/or defaced.

POOR: The record will not play properly due to scratches, bad surface noise, etc. The cover and contents will be badly damaged or partly missing.

BAD: The record is unplayable or might even be broken, and is only of use as a collection-filler.

I have been collecting records for 35 years, they are my obsession! I know what it's like to receive an incorrectly graded piece of vinyl, so I will do my best to be honest!

These records are all doubles or surplus to requirements in my ever expanding collection! They are all checked before listing, and also before despatch, just to make sure they are graded correctly!

Any issues with the grading or record, please feel free to contact me in the unlikely event of there being a problem.

Payment via PayPal please within 5 working days of the auction ending, record will be sent within 5 working days of payment being received.
