This is from my own collection I am not a dealer, in the next few months I am selling off part of my collection, some rarities and collectable, no filler! Thanks for looking!

Please note that this album is complete and original 1st UK Black Track pressing and is priced for its rarety and attraction to collectors, its condition sets it apart. EX PLUS some tracks play flawless.

this is nearly a 56 year old vinyl 1st pressing!

+ the elusive and hard to find orange insert with full lyrics!

*Double ring in centre labels show true 1st issue labels*

It's a repro faithful to the original.

Jimi Hendrix  second album on Track released in 1967 , recorded April, May 67 in Olympic studios London , this followed "are you experienced" in the same year as Jimi was required to produce 2 albums for Track in that year, Jimi was playing and recording in London almost every day so this was no problem  for the experience. Close on the follow up to the debut AYE.

Soon after the debut...recorded at Olympic Studios in Barnes London and released in London 1967 first on the iconic "UK Black Track label"

The photos of Olympic studios and a Tape machine from the era are not included.

It's reported that in the late 80s Virgins studio Manager Barbara Jeffries ordered that all the master tapes stored at Olympic go in the skip!

The bootleggers must have loved her...

This is a Ex plus vinyl copy   "Made in Great Britain" at 6 oclock on the black Track mono label! as it should be on UK mono press,it's the 1st issue with double ring on labels, these are only on the Track UK 1st issue labels.

There are light surface removal lines only  on both sides, some light surface lines scuffs, some under strong light, this is the original iconic Black UK Track label from 1967 with *double rings* in centre.

only  light surface noise in quiter parts , nothing serious on playback it has no skips or jumps or sticks.there are a few light surface ticks nothing to disrupt enjoyment.

This is not a MINT new or Archieve copy it has been played but a great affordable buy for any collector, this Jimis second track recording from 1967 is we believe harder to find than the first record ... here it is under £650! Ex + the vinyl.

The original UK mono copies from 1967 are now so hard to find in this condition you can see £800+ is not unusual , here for less than £650 is a bargain....

The record  Ex plus  condition 

  *a true ex + copy is Seldom seen under 700 gbp*

This is a mono copy and sounds awesome and easily our favourite over the stereo copies.

A1 B1 matrixes

with inverted triangle) this is a 1st issue labels and A1B1 matrix copy  , see photos

clean *double ring* beautiful labels no writing.

This is in great shape no writing or stickers on labels, has some light surface lines, hairlines a few spindle lines there are some light removal scuffs and hairlines under strong light no skips or jumps on our Rega 3.

In ex condition at 56 with some visible lightb scuffs from sleeve removal and general light scuffs  on both sides, from removal which show but do not disrupt play,there is a slight static at intros, from handling over the years, bear in mind this is a 56 year old vinyl record! it has some hairlines and light scuffs to the vinyl under light , no skips or jumps.

 Nice fat pre oil crisis 60s vinyl wow ! very flat on the table, test played on 2 decks wow great audio.

So thick and fat vinyl..very flat on then table.

See pictures in the listing you can see the light scuffs  and light surface on the record. nothing seroius and it plays through without much disruption no skips or jumps and fully play tested on 2 decks one very light tracking. 

There is some very light static in quieter passages and intros ,

Plays clear with bright crisp sound 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 not many of those!

The Cover is Near Ex, only light wearbon spine see pictures,  lyric insert is Mint  " quality repro wow!

kept in a PVC sleeve for most of its life in great shape from a smoke free home.

Bright vibrant colour no writing stickers or tears, spine is in good order a real keeper see photos in listing.

Having done it's job over 57 years the sleeve has siome wear at corners but no visible ringwear at the rear (see photos) and a liitle fraying in place but overall it holding up well.

No WRITING on sleeve , colours are good and not a lot fading, the thick card holds up well, no writing , names or stickers.  record is always stored separate in recent years.

on the whole a good sleeve and a very very collectable ex plus vinyl. there is some light rounding to corners . spine is in good shape,

a great EJ day (London) sleeve.

The "super rare" orange lyric Insert is present  (see photos) its a quality repro Mint ,

 sleeve is over 56 and is in near ex shape one of the better ones  ..kept in plastic protective file.
