You're bidding for:

AMBROSE SLADE Beginnings UK Demo Fontana STL 5492 VG psyche 1969 promo

Cat: STL 5492 
matrix: 886 766 1Y//2  2Y//2 

Insanely rare record and whilst I don't like the phrase or use it lightly this has to be the holy grail for Slade fans, hardly any seem to haver ever turned up online, can't be that many in existence.

The vinyl is clean, but has quite a few hairlines, light marks  and scuffs on each side but still retains a nice gloss. Visually grades inbetween VG+ and VG. Play grades as VG due to light crackle at the start or each side and 2 soft pops on side 2. That said it sounds fantastic with great powerful reproduction and a great clarity, really enjoyable listen.

Both textured Fontana white labels are EX+ too with no writing or stickers, red 1 and 2 on each side respectively with the not for sale text above the centre hole. Light spindle wear to the labels and little wear to the spindle hole itself. There is no sleeve with this promo, comes in a plain white inner in a generic card sleeve.

I do always try and price my LPs fairly but really hard to put a price on this, such a rare item, no way I'll ever see another. As ever open to offers but I'm in no rush to sell.

Good luck bidding! Smoke free, pet free house.
