CUSTOMER UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2022
For the past 2 years GG_Supersounds has been listing records that in the main are in Mint or very close to it condition. We continue to track down and list the very best records that we are able to for our ever growing customer base For those that have been with us over that period of time will know that there are two business partners listing on the site. One from Horsham and the other from Bognor Regis From time to time this has been confusing for our customers as there often 2 invoices to pay where purchases are made from different locations by one customer To rectify this we have decided that the Horsham location will continue to list on GG_Supersounds, whilst the Bognor Regis location will now list on GG-Superstuff.
IT WILL STILL BE POSSIBLE TO BUY FROM BOTH LOCATIONS AND HAVE COMBINED SHIPPING, BUT THIS WILL BE RELIANT OF THE TWO OF US MEETING UP, AND WILL THEREFORE USUALLY TAKE MORE TIME, BUT IT IS DO-ABLE
Nothing Else Changes - Still the same superb selection of the best records will be available


For the protection of all concerned we only send signed for and tracked and signed

REGULAR VISITORS TO OUT SITE WILL BE AWARE THAT WE HAVE BEEN LISTING A COLLECTION OF MINT RECORDS, WHICH WE OBTAINED A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO.  THESE ARE ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE OFFEREING  THE SLEEVE IN MOST CASES ARE IN MINT CONDITION AND THE VINYL IN THE SAME INCREDIBLE STATE
IT IS JUST AN IMPOSSIBILTY (OR SO WE THOUGHT) TO FIND RECORDS OF THE CLASSIC ERA IN THIS SORT OF UNPLAYED / ONE PLAY CONDITION, WITH SLEEVES TO MATCH
I AM DELIGHTED TO BE ABLE TO NOW FINALLY LIST SOME OF THESE CLASSIC ALBUMS FROM THE 60'S / 70'S ALONG WITH THE COMPLETE RECORDING OF EACH RECORD, SO THAT WHEN WE SAY MINT, YOU ARE ABLE TO CONFIRM IT BY TAKING A LISTEN
 we will be listing a large number of E.L.O Electric Light Orchestra albums (One Per Day) which are in the same amazing condition as noted above So if you are looking for that Mint copy then this is where you will find it FULLY TEST PLAYED AND RECORDED SO YOU CAN HEAR IT BEFORE BIDDING Powered by eCommercePlayer.com Powered by eCommercePlayer.com Powered by eCommercePlayer.com Powered by eCommercePlayer.com

' ALLEN ' ETCHED INTO DEAD WAX 

The first press of this famous Lp was issued on the jet label, but with United artists Catalogue Numbers and matrix number. Also has the UA catalogue number on the sleeve. Due to a disagreement with Jeff Lynne and United Artists, the album was repressed with only jet labels and catalogue numbers.Therefore a genuine 1st press, must have the UA Information on the labels, Matric numbers and sleeve

THE RECORDS

 

THE LABELS

THE UA / JET LABELS ARE IN SUPERB CONDITION. THE BASE COLOURS ARE RICH AND VIBRANT AND ARE UNBLEMISHED, AND THE TYPEFACE IS ALL UNRUBBED AND PERFECTLY LEGIBLE.

NO SPIDER LINES BY THE SPINDLE HOLE. IN FACT, THERE IS STILL RESIDUAL VINYL INSIDE THE 2ND DISC'S SPINDLE HOLE

THE VINYL

BOTH DISCS ARE THE ORIGINAL HEAVYWEIGHT FIRST PRESS ISSUES. THEY BOTH GLEAM LIKE NEW AND IN DAYLIGHT ARE TOTALLY FLAWLESS, AND EVEN WHEN PLACED UNDER INTENSE ILLUMINATION THERE IS NOTHING TO SEE. A STUNNING PAIR OF RECORDS

PLAYING THE RECORD


THE RECORDS PLAY WITHOUT ANY DISTORTION WHATSOEVER, WHICH OF COURSE THE SHOULDN'T HAVING ONLY HAD ONE PLAY FROM NEW

THERE IS NO BACKGROUND CRACKLE AT ANY POINT AND NO LOUD CLICKS

 I CANNOT SAY THAT I HEARD ANY DUST POPS OR TICS THROUGH THE ENTIRE PLAYTHROUGH 

ABSOLUTELY SILENT LINKING GROOVES THROUGH ALL FOUR SIDES

NO EMBEDDED VINYL NOISE

I AM HAPPY TO MAKE THE OVERALL GRADING MINT

TAKE A VERY GOOD LISTEN AND JUDGE IT FOR YOURSELF

 

 

 

THE SLEEVE

 

NON LAMINATED GARROD AND LOFTHOUSE GATEFOLD IN MAGNIFICENT CONDITION.

THE BEST EXAMPLE IS HAVE EVER HAD THE PLEASURE TO LIST

THE FRONT SURFACE IS FLAT AND VERY CLEAN AND HAS NO HEAVY CREASES.THE FRONT SURFACE USUALLY HAS SMALL LINES CLOSE TO THE SPINE, BUT THIS COPY HAS BEEN PROTECTED INSIDE A STRONG PLASTIC SLEEVE FROM NEW AND HAS NO PRESSURE LINES  WHATSOEVER. NONE EITHER ALONG THE TOP OR BOTTOM EDGES, AND NO THUMB LINES NEAR THE OPENING EDGE.

THERE IS NO RING WEAR, NOR EVEN ANY TRACE OF RECORD SHAPE.

THE FOUR CORNERS ARE SHARP AND SQUARE

THE TOP AND BOTTOM EDGES ARE TOTALLY FREE FROM ANY SHELF WEAR AT ALL, NO LOSS OF COLOUR ANYWHERE AND UNBLEMISHED CORNER TIPS

THE SPINE IS ABSOLUTELY  PERFECT WHICH IS AGAIN UNUSUAL ON THIS SLEEVE WHICH USUALLY SUFFERS FROM RUBBING . TOTALLY FLAT AND FREE FROM SQUASHING. ALL OF THE TYPEFACE IS PRISTINE AND PERFECTLY LEGIBLE, AND THE COLOURS ARE IMMACULATE ALL THE WAY FROM TOP TO BOTTOM

THE REAR SURFACE IS ONCE AGAIN MINT WITH A GLOSSY SHEEN. AGAIN  NO PRESSURE  LINES CLOSE TO THE SPINE, OR ANY OF THE OTHER EDGES.

THIS IS A SUPREME EXAMPLE

BOTH OPENING EDGES ARE RAZOR SHARP 

OPENING THE GATEFOLD REVEALS A PRISTINE INTERIOR, WITH BOTH PANELS BEING PRESERVED IN A MINT CONDITION

THE TWO ORIGINAL ISSUE CARD INNERS WITH THE   'ROUNDED ' CORNERS ARE IN PRISTINE UNSPLIT CONDITION.  NO DAMAGE TO THE LARGE THUMB NOTCHES AT THE TOP OF EACH. ONE OF THEM HAS A SMALL SCUFF ON THE BOTTOM EDGE WITH A PIN HOLE ON THE SEAM. THE OTHER A TINY LIGHT CREASE LINE
