This is a really good solid, quality example of The Beatles debut album on the famously sought after GOLD label.
This is actually the rarer of the two pressings that were pressed on the old style 'gold' Parlophone label with far fewer being pressed on the Northern Songs label as it was a short run press before it was changed to the yellow and black Parlophone label.
The quality of the labels is superb, as you can see from the pictures. The gold lettering is fantastic and there is only very minimal signs of previous use.
The vinyl surfaces again are of a really good standard, they have a deep gloss with true clean surfaces. When held flat in normal light it is great only when tilted in outdoor sunlight do the light surface marks reveal themselves of which there are quite a few, however I must stress that these are light marks but there are a number on each side so please be aware.
In conclusion of the vinyl, I would say judging by the labels and surfaces that this has been played a decent number of times BUT has been played properly and with care.
The original EMITEX inner is still present and in great condition.
The outer original 'gold' sleeve is not great but has done its job over the years in preserving the record. The front is decent but there is deterioration to the rear flip backs. Please look and the pictures and be aware of this as I am not hiding anything.
Quick note to bidders
I welcome all bidders and I am open and transparent about my records, if you have any queries or questions please ask, I will give you an honest answer. All I ask is for you to read the description and make note of my grading, VG+ means VG+ and not anything else, the last thing I want is someone bidding thinking the record is something that it isn't this only leads to needless wasted time sending back and too in the post which I don't like doing with these collectors items. It is best to get everything sorted before bidding. I am sure that all serious bidders and collectors agree with me.
Good luck everyone.
