On offer here is a VERY rare Double LP (especially in this
condition!!!!) by The Jimi Hendrix Experience called "Electric Ladyland"
and is an ORIGINAL 1968 UK 'Earliest' 1st Pressing on the 1st Press
Track labels!!!! THIS DOUBLE LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY
IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!! THIS IS ONE OF JIMI HENDRIX'S RAREST & MOST
SOUGHT AFTER LPs EVER AND VIRTUALLY NEVER TURNS UP FOR SALE!!!! JUST
TRY AND FIND ANOTHER ONE!!!! IT IS ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER LPs ON
THE TRACK LABEL - AND IS INCREDIBLY TOUGH TO LOCATE TODAY!!!! BUT WHAT
MAKES THIS DOUBLE LP REALLY SPECIAL - IS THAT IT IS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST
PRESSING EVER MADE!!!! AND THIS IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ON THIS
DOUBLE LP!!!! THIS IS A 100% GENIUNE 1968 UK 1ST PRESSING - WITH
MASSIVELY THICK VINYL (LATER ONES ARE THINNER), 1ST PRESS 1/1/1/1 MATRIX
ENDINGS (LATER ONES DONT), AND 1ST PRESS 'UPSIDE DOWN' MATRIXES ON THE
RECORD LABELS (LATER ONES DONT HAVE THIS!)!!!! AND INCREDIBLY - THIS
DOUBLE LP HAS THE 'DAY OF RELEASE' DATE CODINGS '108' (OCTOBER 1968) ON THE INNER SLEEVES (SEE PICTURE!) CLEARLY SHOWING THAT THIS DOUBLE LP WAS BOUGHT ON THE VERY 'DAY OF RELEASE' BACK IN 1968!!!!
AND THIS DOUBLE LP IS MADE EVEN RARER STILL - AS IT HAS A TRULY AWESOME SET OF 1ST PRESS DISCS, WHICH LOOK AND PLAY AMAZINGLY (THE BEST I HAVE SEEN FOR MANY YEARS!)!!!!
AND OF COURSE, THERE IS THE ENDLESS DEBATE ABOUT BLUE TEXT AND WHITE TEXT COVERS. UP UNTIL A FEW YEARS AGO, EVERYONE THOUGHT THE 'BLUE TEXT' COVERS WERE THE FIRST COVERS UNTIL SOMEONE IN THE U.S. CAME UP WITH A VERY LOGICAL REASON WHY THEY WERENT. AND IT IS VERY SIMPLE. THE 'BLUE TEXT' COVERS AS EVERYONE NOW KNOWS, WASNT HOW THE COVER WAS INTENDED TO LOOK AT ALL. THEY WERE ORIGINALLY PRINTED IN WHITE TEXT, HOWEVER, DUE TO THE CHANGE OF THE RUNNING ORDER ON THE DISCS - THEY HAD TO BE 'OVERPRINTED' IN BLUE TEXT TO CORRECT THE RUNNING ORDER!!!! THIS IS OFTEN SEEN ON 'BLUE TEXT' COVERS WITH THE ORIGINAL WHITE PRINT TRACKLISTING SHOWING THROUGH UNDERNEATH. HOWEVER WHILST THESE COVERS WERE ALL BEING CORRECTED, CLEARLY THE PRODUCTION LINE DIDNT JUST STOP!!!! SO I AM DEFINITELY OF THE VIEW, THAT WHILST THE 'BLUE TEXT' COVERS WERE BEING RE-FINISHED AND CORRECTED, THE CORRECT 'WHITE PRINT' COVERS WERE BEING PRINTED AT EXACTLY THE SAME TIME!!!! AND CERTAINLY THIS IS VERY MUCH BORNE OUT BY THIS DOUBLE LP. IT WAS CLEARLY BOUGHT THE DAY IT CAME OUT, HAS 1ST PRESS 1/1/1/1 MATRIXES & 1ST PRESS LABELS, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY 1ST PRESS '10/8' (OCTOBER 1968) DATE CODED INNER SLEEVES!!!! SO THIS DOUBLE LP IS ABSOLUTELY UNDOUBTEDLY A 'DAY OF RELEASE' 1ST PRESSING - AND YOU SIMPLY CANNOT GET ANY 'EARLIER' THAN THIS!!!!
NOT ONLY THAT BUT THIS DOUBLE LP IS IN ABSOLUTELY SUPERB CONDITION - AND CLEARLY HASN'T BEEN PLAYED MUCH AT ALL!!!! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURES!!!! THIS IS THE ORIGINAL 1968 UK 1ST PRESSING ON THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS TRACK LABELS, 1ST PRESS 'UPSIDE DOWN' MATRIXES ON THE LABELS, 1ST PRESS 1/1/1/1 MATRIXES, 1ST PRESS '10/8' DATE CODED INNER SLEEVES, AND 1ST PRESS 'E.J.DAY' FULLY LAMINATED 'WHITE TEXT' GATEFOLD COVER!!! THIS DOUBLE LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS - SO DONT MISS OUT ON THIS AMAZING OPPORTUNITY!!!! This is the ORIGINAL Track UK 1st Pressing from 1968 and is in SUPERB condition!!!! The records are pressed on THICK quality vinyl. The Cat. No is 613 008/9 on the ORIGINAL 1st Press 'Matt' Track Labels (see picture) and is a UK Stereo 1st pressing (there were NO Monos)!!!!
The record labels to BOTH records are in SUPERB condition (see pictures) with NO writing, NO wear, and only a VERY few light spindle marks!!!! IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT THESE RECORDS HAVEN'T BEEN PLAYED MUCH AT ALL!!!! The vinyl is in absolutely AWESOME condition!!!! Most of these 60s Double LPs had been to a lot of wild parties and are usually found totally worn out, and almost unplayable. These records are NOT and BOTH records have NO scratches, NO hairlines, NO scufflines, only 2 or 3 absolutely ULTRA light TINY surface traces, and only a VERY few of the lightest paper scuffs only visible under light!!!! ITS AS SIMPLE AS THAT!!!! BOTH RECORDS STILL RETAIN THEIR ORIGINAL 'JUST PRESSED' LOOK AND LOOK AMAZING!!!! It is great to find that BOTH records play as STUNNINGLY as the visual with NO pops, NO sticking, NO jumps, NO hiss, and barely ANY crackle AT ALL!!!! The sound quality is simply SUPERB with NO groovewear and NO distortion either!!!! BOTH records must grade MINT(Minus)!!!! WHAT AN ABSOLUTELY AWESOME SET OF RECORDS!!!! Believe me these records are NOT overgraded in ANY way!!!! I use STRICT RC grading standards - it is not in my interest not to!!!! Brillant!!!! The records also come in their ORIGINAL 1st Press 10/8 'Date Coded' inner sleeves which are both in BRILLIANT condition (with NO splits, FULLY 'poly-lined', NO writing, and some creasing!)!!!! The ORIGINAL 1st Press 'E.J.Day' FULLY Laminated 'White Text' Gatefold Cover is in BRILLIANT condition for once!!!! It has NO edge wear, NO spinal wear, only VERY slight corner wear (NOT through the colour!), NO rips, NO tears, only some very VERY minor evidence of 'tipping in' to the corners, NO splits, only a few VERY light creases (cover is VERY flat looking!), shiny laminate, only 1 VERY minor indentation line on the VERY bottom right edge (almost IMPOSSIBLE to notice!), NO annotations, and NO writing!!!! The opening edges are beautifully straight with barely ANY feathering AT ALL!!!! Even the laminated inside of the cover is in SUPERB condition with NO grubbyness, NO yellowing, VERY shiny laminate, and NO writing!!!! The cover must grade Very Good++++ if not better!!!! BRILLIANT COVER!!!! THIS DOUBLE LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS (ESPECIALLY AS A 'DAY OF RELEASE' 1ST PRESSING!) - SO DONT MISS OUT ON THIS INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY!!!!HAVE A LOOK AT MY PICTURES - I DO MY BEST TO SHOW THE RECORD FROM ALL ANGLES AND MAKE THE PICTURES AS CLEAR AS POSSIBLE - THERE IS NOTHING TO HIDE!!!!

Though there are rarely ever any problems with my items (I always try my very best to describe everything exactly!) - PLEASE REMEMBER to contact with me FIRST, if you have any problems at all, before you leave feedback and star ratings, so I get a chance to turn any negative experience into a positive one!

Please do NOT bid if you cannot give me at least 1 chance to sort everything out to your FULL satisfaction in the unlikely event of a problem. Thanks again - Graham @ XXXRecords. PLEASE NOTE - Private feedback bidders must consult me first prior to bidding - due to previous problems regarding non-payment, and non-receipt. MY POSTAGE UNDERCHARGE GUARANTEE TO ALL BUYERS (I always undercharge on postage!):- Due to UK Royal Mail's obscene price increases this year - I have had no choice but to increase postage charges a little. Until this year - I had kept them exactly the same since I joined ebay back in 2002. However this years price increases have been so obscene, that I have had no choice but to increase my postage charges for the first time ever. However PLEASE NOTE - my absolute 100% guarantee to you as a buyer - is that I will ALWAYS undercharge postage on everything I send out. Even after the increases, I am still charging you the buyer LESS than I am being charged myself. On each package I send out - the price is clearly stated on the front of the package (please check it when you recieve it!). I also do NOT charge for packaging costs - ONLY for postal costs! And should you find that I have overcharged you postage in ANY way - I will refund DOUBLE the difference. THAT IS MY 100% POSTAL GUARANTEE FOR EACH AND EVERY BUYER! No buyer EVER deserves to be overcharged on postage - and on my listings, I'll make sure they are ALWAYS undercharged. Any questions - please ask!
