Welcome Back Rare Vinyl Fans & Fiends Alike.
HERE you will often FIND offered BETTER CONDITION RECORDS than many other
(visually graded only) sources offer, WHICH ARE FREQUENTLY TOP COPIES & VIRTUALLY new or LIKE-NEW
and unplayed or played very few times, AND/OR THE BEST COPIES POSSIBLE of many choice records.
Purchased: USED. Original 1970 1st press UK copy with NO EMI of these excellent recordings comprising their considerably rarer 2nd LP which I reckon was 1 of the rarest of all Harvest releases. It also boasts an almost 28 minute long suite on side 1! I auctioned my 2nd copy off on eBay back on June 25, 2012 for $788.00 which you can view all details of via popsike's results. Covers were both about the same but the vinyl on this one is even slightly better! I never planned on offering this copy but I'm making a big push with offering some top rarities to lesson my cc debt! Yet more always uncompromising experimental improvisational recordings by this/these fine folk/jazz/rock zone troopers. Once again this player/these players demonstrate a unique affinity and collective mindset for producing such telepathic improvisation. It doesn't always work well but when it does like here it's absolutely glorious! Worth the price of admission for those who are experimentally inclined and not uptight or inclined to become prejudicially divided (as all of us need to be unified worldwide to stave off the stifling New World Order and their tyrannical diabolical aspirations to enslave us all). Beware and please don't be too square! Cheers for the UK Brexit vote to leave the European Union!!
Cover Condition: Choice EX(-) gate-fold for front & NM inner with minimal wear but VG+ back with some ring-wear evident mainly on top & VG+ spine with some rub-off & chipping especially near top! Very minimal wear on top & moderate on bottom edges.
Inner Sleeve: Original white paper sleeve to which I've added a sheer plastic VIP. Color Xerox's of 2 gig ads I will make copies of for the winner as I did when I sold my 2nd copy back on 6/25/12!
Record Condition: Superb M(-) with scant hairlines or sleeve-wear but a small lacquer stain blemish or scuff near the beginning of side 1 which I'll review to see if it sounds. This is excellent music here featured in an intimate musical setting providing some cosmic sounds that can send one into the stratosphere if they're ready, willing and able! So now it's your move!
Label Condition: Both=M with No spindle marks!
Matrix #'s: SHVL 785 A-1 & B-1. See photos.
PAYMENT is expected within 1 week unless you're confirmed bidding on other items. Combined shipping is available for multiple purchases up to a 2 week duration counting from the day of the first winning bid and/or confirmed purchase (if Buy it Now) made by any buyer. All orders will be shipped within 1 week of payment with records removed from sleeves (unless SS) to prevent any cover seams from splitting.
Please understand that all orders will be expertly boxed with care and shipped promptly, but I cannot and will not be held responsible for anything lost or damaged in transit. Consequently insurance is strongly recommended for all US winners. Payment is Pay Pal only for all foreign buyers and insurance is unavailable as it is too expensive. Once again, I cannot and will not be held responsible for any item(s) lost or damaged in transit due to careless handling by the USPS or foreign postal services. Any/All buyers outside of the U.S. hereby agree to accept full responsibility for any loss or damage to/for any item sent, and furthermore accept that the seller, myself, will not be held liable or responsible for any refund or further recourse for recovery of the lost or damaged item(s). THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING & INTEREST AND GOOD LUCK BIDDING!!
INVOICES: It is not my policy to send out invoices unless or until requested. This is because I don't want to rush people to pay in case they're wanting to potentially win another item or items and take full advantage of my combined shipping offer. I can't predict what else someone might want to bid on and I don't necessarily know from one week to the next what I'm going to list for sale from my collection. However if you don't want to wait then feel free to pay for your item(s) won at any time. All information is in my listings for the proper shipping costs depending upon where you are located. If you're not sure then please e-mail me for confirmation and I will gladly send you an invoice. Please do not abuse my grace period for paying within 2 weeks or just let me know if you're having a problem so we can work it out. I'm friendly and understanding and THANK-YOU FOR BEING CONSIDERATE! However, I reserve the right to either re-list any item or offer it to the runner up bidder if you don't pay for it within the allotted time period and play by the rules. If that happens then I will not allow you to bid in future auctions of mine.
Please Note: I only occasionally offer 45's or EP's so please wait for me to give you a more accurate quote from the P.O. depending upon your location before you pay me.
SHIPPING & HANDLING RATES: Please note that as of today 26th February 2012, I've lowered the price of additional single LPs for media mail for U.S. customers to $1.50 instead of $2.00 for up to 6 albums total, per my attempts to keep it closer to actual costs of mailing. Remember that gate-folds usually weigh more so I've tried to establish a medium based on that.
RATES UPDATE-as of June 2013: Since the January 27th U.S. postal rates increases some foreign buyers have automatically been sending me $24.15 in checkout (despite my posted $19.00 rate) which I thank you all for as that's frequently been my exact cost to ship one LP double boxed. However when I've used 2 boxes recently (a regular size/weight box I use for all domestic shipping packed like it's ready to ship by itself inserted with bubble wrap taped surrounding it within a larger much heavier cardboard outer box) it's actually been costing me $26.00 more often than $24.15(regardless of gate-fold or not), thus my additions to the rates. Please remember again that I'm paying for all of my packing materials which are factored in accordingly as already noted below. It's your call!
1.Continental U.S.A.-1 LP is $4.00 for Media mail + additional single LPs are $1.50 each up to 6 total. More than 6 may require an adjustment.
2.Alaska, Hawaii & Canada are $13.00 for 1st LP Airmail and $5.00 for each additional single album up to 5 total.
3.Mexico & South America are $15.00 for 1st LP Airmail and $4.00 for each additional up to 5 total.
4.Europe is $19.00 OR $27.00 (IF record sells for $100.00-150.00 or more AND BUYER OPTS FOR DOUBLE BOX PACKING including outer heavy cardboard over-sized box) for 1st LP Airmail and $5.00 for each additional up to 5 total.
5.Japan, Asia, Australia & New Zealand, Korea, Russia and United Kingdom are $19.00 OR $27.00 (see above) for 1st LP Airmail and $5.00 for each additional up to 5 total.
6.Africa and Middle East are $20.00 OR 28.00 (see above) for 1st LP Airmail and $5.00 for each additional up to 5 total.
ATTENTION FOR ALL FOREIGN BUYERS: For a few international buyers lately who have purchased 6 or more LPs for combined shipping the above rates I list have been inadequate to cover my shipping costs because more than 4 additional LPs can push the weight to over 4 pounds into a higher shipping cost category. So for now please ask for a shipping quote if you're buying more than 4-5 LPs. Rest assured that as always I will strive to offer all customers the best rates possible to save them money and be as close to the actual shipping costs for their item(s) as possible within reason. Please understand that LPS, their covers (gate-fold or non-gate-fold), boxes and packing materials utilized can vary somewhat in their respective weights so with all of my posted rates I try and set averages that are appropriate to generally cover my costs and be close to yours also. Thanks once again for your understanding in my efforts to serve you all to the best of my ability.
PLEASE NOTE: Rest assured that I only charge to basically cover my costs and all of my shipping supplies and handling time to pack are factored in & included already with no additional charges added on to pad the actual sales prices. I strive to satisfy and attain your 100% satisfaction as well as retain my 100% feedback rating!

MY PRESERVATION POLICY on many records that I revered was simple and I share it with you now so that you understand why you take virtually no risk buying from me providing the album was bought new and not used originally. When I'd buy a "new" album and it was something I liked a lot and still available (most of my new albums were purchased in the early-mid 1970's!) I'd initially play it between 15-25 times to become familiar with it and then sell it to a friend as a still EX+ well preserved nice copy. (Adding outer & inner plastic sleeves was standard procedure additionally limiting cover wear and/or hairline paper sleeve marks.) Then I'd buy another new copy and in some cases if a particular favorite then yet another, meaning that I only played the 2nd copy (now my 1st) 5-10 times and the 3rd (now my 2nd if I kept 2) once or twice, always initially taping or now in more recent years currently burning to disc 1 copy within the first couple of plays thus significantly limiting play to this day on most of my lps. I did/do this with many single copy rarities as well so most play was/is on tapes or cd-rs. I bought a lot of CDs of favorite things also which further helped preserve my vinyl and limit play of much of it. Sometimes I also acquired rare British and European vinyl which I never saw imported in stores and sold new in the United States or Canada from contacts I established through mail correspondence during the 1970's. I developed contacts in England, France, Germany, Holland & Norway. Be aware that the MAJORITY of albums or occasionally 45's that I list ARE FREQUENTLY my ONLY COPIES so bid accordingly as you'll not likely see most of them listed by me again.
SO, MOST OF MY ALBUMS ORIGINALLY BOUGHT NEW, STILL ACCURATELY APPEAR VIRTUALLY NEW AND UNPLAYED, AND MOST WERE HONESTLY PLAYED NO MORE THAN 5-10 TIMES AND OFTEN ONLY TWICE OR THRICE AND ARE STILL NEAR MINT!! WHY TAKE THE RISK & HASSLE WITH RETURNS EVEN IF THEY"RE ACCEPTED. SHOP HERE AND REMOVE ALL DOUBT AND DISAPPOINTMENT FROM YOUR FUTURE E-BAY VINYL TRANSACTIONS NOW!
