IN MAGNIFICENT  ONE PLAY MINT MINUS!!! CONDITION!!!


**STEREO PRESSING***

THE VERY RARE  1ST PRESS ON ELEKTRA

EX + SLEEVE


INCREDIBLY RARE EXPERIMENTAL JAZZ / PSYCH LP


this album was part of a jazz collection that I have recently obtained. I suspect the previous owner had no idea what it was , and just bought it because of the jazz influence. I am convinced it only got the one play before being confined to the collection never to grace a turntable again until now. It is in the most magnificent condition

THE RECORDS

 

THE LABELS

THE TEXTURED ORANGE LABELS ARE IN PRISTINE CONDITION. THE COLOUR FULLY STRETCHES INTO THE UNWORN SPINDLE HOLE. THE BLACK TYPEFACE IS ALSO IN MINT CONDITION, BEING PERFECTLY LEGIBLE. THERE ARE JUST 1-2 MINUSCULE SPIDER LINES BY THE SPINDLE HOLE

THE VINYL

BEAUTIFUL GLEAMING VINYL, THAT LOOKS AS GOOD AS THE DAY IT WAS PRESSED IN 1967. THE SHEEN SHOWS THIS TO BE A VIRTUALLY UNTOUCHED DISC, AND THERE ARE NO MARKS OR HANDLING TO THE SURFACE WHATSOEVER. EVEN HOLDING THIS UP TO INTENSE ILLUMINATION THERE IS JUST NOTHING TO SEE OTHER THAN A FEW  TINY PAPER WISPY HAIRLINES, AND ONT MINUSCLUE DULL SPOT (NON SOUNDING)

PLAYING THE RECORD

I BELIEVE THAT IF YOU ARE GOING TO SPEND YOUR MONEY ON A FANTASTIC COLLECTIBLE VINYL, THAT YOU SHOULD BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR WHAT YOU ARE BUYING. I HAVE THEREFORE INVESTED IN THE SOFTWARE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO DO JUST THAT.

I HAVE RECORDED THE ENTIRE ALBUM FROM START TO FINISH , AS I DO WITH ALL MY LISTINGS,  AS I AM CONVINCED THAT BIDDERS WOULD WELCOME THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE ABLE TO LISTEN TO THE RECORD BEFORE LAYING A BID.

THIS IS A SERVICE I AM PLEASED TO BE ABLE TO OFFER MY CUSTOMERS

THE ALBUM PLAYS FAULTLESSLY. AS SOON AS THE STYLUS HITS THE RUN IN GROOVE, THERE IS TOTAL SILENCE. THE MUSIC STARTS WITH A CRISP CLEAR CLARITY THAT IS SECOND TO NONE.

THERE IS NO DISTORTION TO ANY PART OF THE RECORDING, AND NO BACKGROUND CRACKLE EITHER

NO LOUD CLICKS ANYWHERE AND NO VINYL NOISE EITHER

BARELY A SPLIT SECOND OF BARELY AUDIBLE STATIC ON A COUPLE OF RANDOM OCCASIONS AND I CAN'T EVEN SAY THAT I HEARD ANY DUST POPS WHATSOEVER, JUSTA COUPLE OF TINY STATIC LIKE TICS

AN UNBELIEVABLE COPY

I GRADE THIS AUDIO PERFORMANCE MINT MINUS

PLEASE TAKE A LISTEN FOR YOURSELF AND BE THE JUDGE

 

 

 

THE SLEEVE

 

LAMINATED SINGLE SLEEVE

 

THE FRONT SURFACE IS STILL VERY SHINY AND THE LAMINATE HAS NO PEEL OR FLAKE, JUST ONE TINY SPECK OF LIFT IN THE TOP RIGHT CORNER

THE EDGES DO HAVE SOME LAMINATE PRESSURE LINES AGAINST THEM BUT NONE AT ALL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SLEEVE

THE CORNER TIPS ARE ALSO RUBBED

THE STEREO STICKER IS FIRMLY ADHERED TO THE LEFT TOP CORNER

 

THE TOP AND BOTTOM EDGES ARE A LITTLE ROUGH TO THE FEEL IN PLACES AND THE CORNER TIPS ARE RUBBED

THE SPINE HAS FOUR OF THE PRESSURE LINES ON THE SURFACE AND THE TOP AND BOTTOM TIPS ARE RUBBED, BUT THE TYPEFACE IS ALL PERFECTLY LEGIBLE

THE OPENING EDGE IS  STILL SHARP AND VIRTUALLY AS GOOD AS THE DAY THE SLEEVE WAS PUT TOGETHER

THE REAR SURFACE IS JUST AS CLEAN AND MARK FREE AS THE FRONT.AND LIKE THE FRONT IT HAS SOME SMALL EDGE PRESSURE LINES 

THE ORIGINAL POLY LINED INNER SLEEVE IS ALSO INCLUDED WITH THE SET AND IS IN UNSPLIT WITH TWO CORNER CREAS LINES

I HAVE NO HESITATION IN GRADING THIS  SLEEVE EX

 

 

GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR BID IF YOU CHOSE TO GO FOR IT
