This is Deep Purple's "Live In Japan 1972" LP on ultra rare rare rare Japanese RED metal acetate. I am selling both volumes 1 and 2 as a set as I think most serious collectors would prefer that. The acetates have never been played. Jackets have been stored in a poly sleeve since day one. For the ultimate Deep Purple fan and records collector, this is it! You will not find another one like it especially in this condition.
I am not a records dealer/trader. I am a private collector of vinyl and have amassed hundreds of  rare and unique recordings in the last 50 years. Now, I feel it is time to pass them on to the next generation of vinyl enthusiasts. Hopefully, these discs will end up in the hands of collectors who will continue to preserve and treasure them for many more decades to come.
Nearly everything in my collection were purchased new, and have been minimally handled by only me. Many of them have never even been on a turntable. Practically all of them are in MINT condition. You'd be hard pressed to find nicer vinyl than from my private collection. As we collectors all know, when it comes to the value of vinyl records, condition is king.
Let me know if you want to see pics of the vinyl itself. Unless it's colored vinyl, I typically don't take pictures of records because they are like dust magnets when they are out of their sleeves. I am not sure pics are that useful for assessing the condition of the disc anyway.
If you like to add this item to your collection, but don't like the price, make your best fair offer. I have so many of these rare discs that I am motivated to sell. Since I am not a dealer, I don't need a profit built into the price.  I also adjust prices weekly, so make sure you add it to your watch list.
Due to the fragile nature of vinyl, I do not accept returns once the record has been handled or played. As such, even though the condition of the records are pristine, I am selling them AS IS. However, if there is any problem, please contact me before leaving unflattering feedback. I will do my utmost to rectify any concerns you may have.
I insure against damage and loss during shipping.
