(Computer World)


MEGARARE and HARD-TO-FIND original EMI Records very first STEREO press released in Chile in 1981 by EMI Records, made and distributed by EMI ODEON CHILENA S.A. (EMI Chile), with traditional brown/red labels with black lettering and red “EMI”, catalog number 5266 (32c 064-064370), with hand etched matrix numbers EMC 3370 A in Side A and EMC 3370 B in Side B. WOW!!! Another TOP RARITY from Chile, a record almost never seen and now by the second time auctioned here in eBay!!!

“COMPUTER WORLD” was originally released in 1981 in English and German-sung versions and the same year it was released here in Chile in the English version and like in so many cases of the period we got an UNIQUE full laminated flipback cover made of 2 single pieces of cardboard, with front cover pasted on the flips of back cover. Front and back cover keep strictly the original artwork and the same yellow tinted back cover of the US Warner Bros. Records Inc., with all text written in English, with the only difference that in back cover is the catalog number and EMI Records logo at top right corner and at the bottom edge is written “Marca Registrada. Fabricado y distribuido por EMI ODEON CHILENA S.A., Santiago -Chile” (“Trademark. Made and distributed by EMI ODEON CHILENA S.A., Santiago - Chile”). In labels the album title is written in Spanish only and tracklist is written in Spanish, translated to English, with full credits for music and lyrics in the same line and additional information “Original Sound Recordings owned by Golden Cloud Ltda.” and immediately below at the bottom it’s an UNIQUE and AMAZING ERROR only seen in this MEGARARE CHILEAN PRESS: the year printed in both labels is 1969!!! So, yes Sirs, here you have the chance to get and own this UNIQUE ISSUE of “Computer World” by Kraftwerk, one of the rarest pressings known around the world, with album and song titles written in Spanish and DATED “1969”!!! WOW!!! And what a great condition!!! A MUST TO HAVE!!!

The cover was already described and it’s in great EX or EX+ condition for both sides, clean and clear, complete, no marks or names written, only very light ring marks, some minimal wear in edges, more evident in corners, some light creases and all seams fully intact. The record is in strong EX or EX+ condition both sides, glossy and clean, with only minimal scuffs and soft hairlines, hard to see at first sight, which don’t affect play at all. Labels are in strong NM- or NM condition, clean and clear both sides, absolutely free of marks of any kind, only with minimal spindle hole wear in Side A. The sound is in absolute NM- or NM condition both sides, loud, clear and clean, no background noise (surface noise is normal in records from Chile), with only very minimal and occasional crackles here and there, barely audible, a bit more evident in the silent parts between songs, which don’t really cause any distraction from the stunning sound this record keeps from the beginning to the end. Overall, sure this record it’s in great condition for any collector who knows this record is a real rarity of Kraftwerk and let me tell you again that cover and record are in amazing condition, with a sound quality which won’t disappoint anyone!!! How many times have you seen this MEGARARE CHILEAN ISSUE auctioned here in eBay? And keep in mind the INCREDIBLE ERROR you can only see in this Chilean press: this record is dated “1969”!!! WOW!!! Another FIND FROM CHILE AGAIN!!! Click on the pictures to enlarge and see the labels and cover in detail. WOW!!!

We don’t use the generic “VG” most of South American sellers use to hide poor quality conditions or “NM” or “Mint” for records which aren’t even clean and sound less than a normal “VG” in professional standards. We use the Record Collector’s Grading System with a little modification: we don’t use MINT grade but for Sealed records and we can use a + or – to show a most professional accurate description.


MINT (M): I only use this grade for Sealed records.

NEAR MINT (NM): The record itself is in like new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality (only some very very very light hairlines caused for the record rubbing the sleeve). The cover and any extra items such as the lyric sheet, booklet or poster are in like perfect condition.

EXCELLENT (EX): The record shows some signs of having been played, but there is very little lessening in sound quality, maybe some surface marks which doesn’t affect play. The cover and packaging might have slight wear and/or creasing.

VERY GOOD (VG): The record has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticeable surface marks and the occasional light scratch. Normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items, without any major defects, is acceptable.

GOOD (G): The record has been played so much that the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and mild scratches. The cover and contents suffer from folding, scuffing of edges, spine splits, discoloration, etc.

FAIR (F): The record is still just playable but has not been cared for properly and displays considerable surface noise; it may even jump.
The cover and contents will be torn, stained and/or defaced.

POOR (P): The record will not play properly due to scratches, bad surface noise, etc. The cover and contents will be badly damaged or partly missing.

BAD (B): The record is unplayable or might even be broken, and is only of use as a collection-filler.
