Please note that this album is complete and original 1st UK pressing and is priced for its rarity and attraction to collectors 3 sides are" EX " condition the vinyls, side A has a scuff which sound for 6 revolutions 
this has great audio! the stated age related wear

Good copy, no skips or jumps on our Rega 3, would   grade 3 as EX condition, some surface noise on intro 20 seconds of Have you been to Electric Ladyland after all good, here is a real classic (has some hairline scratches and  removal scuffs and lines which don't affect playback too badly) some static in quieter passages which may improve with a professional clean.These are originals from 68 so please appreciate they are used.

Jimi on its launch said " I made this album with Stereo in mind" so listen..

Tracks include , Electric Ladyland, Crosstown Traffic, Gipsy Eyes, Voodoo Chile (extended original version and slight return) Long Hot Summer Night...Rainyday women, Come on...
most;y recorded in Electric Lady studios in Greenwich Village New York in 68 Jimmy was living and playing there every day and the music here is some of his best work ...

as Jimi said at the time "i made this album with "stereo" in mind , "

great colors to describe the sky ...

The double album NORMALLY sells now with "Blue Text" for well over £500+ in Ex condition, this is way better and real keeper, sleeve near ex, vinyls are 3 x ex 1 vgc plus there are some surface lines on the vinyls , audio is very good only. A great buy FOR UNDER 500 GBP.
Very rare these Blue Text copies now

The "Electric Ladyland" Album on original track labels 1st pressings at a great price ... 

this is the original 1968 first press Matrixes on UK Track records.

The "Ladies" cover

Nr excellent
Has the larger sepia photos of Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchel which only the `blue text` copies have.
Only slight laminate creasing or the rear of the sleeve, spine shows wear to top see photo front is very very clean , look at the great laminate condition in photos, no writing, names, stickers or tears, in great shape for  years! kept safe in its pvc sleeve for many years , its not perfect as this has been handled and is almost 53. gatefold pics and inside laminate very very clean. 

The records
Label with  side A AND C on ONE disc NO ERROR!
Label B and C is labeled on same disc.

to explain these were made for old style auto changers so you could play side A then drop side B, then then turn both over drop side C then D etc....(perish the thought!) but yes they did!

NOTE we see many reports of "hey Ive got a rare press A and D..." (this is normal )   
3 sides ex side A VERY GOOD +  A1 B2 and A2 B2 "Hand Etched and corrected" 

This is very early in the run and good audio playback.

`there is no writing on labels` GREAT CONDITION , some spider trails but looking good.

great labels slight spindle marks plays clean, some light lines only with some hairline scratches and small removal scuffs no issues on our Rega 3 or the super fussy light tracking Kenwood deck we use to grade, some pops and clicks in quiter parts but nothing to disrupt pleasure of this great recording (we have not cleaned as this is a personal thing) this is a first press in great order!

no writing stickers or names on labels.

has the original polydor (plastic bags can be dangerous) inners in reasonable shape

Plays fantastic with bright clear sound and amazing bass, may benefit from a professional clean (we don't do this as it's an individual thing) some background static is noticeable in the quieter passages but nothing to disrupt playing no sticks or jumps on our Rega 3.

any questions please ask!
