Hi, I started collecting vinyl Lp's and 45's in 1971, I have 20,000 + which I have moved now 4 times, and about to move again next year. So it's time to let at least half go. Most are in at least Excellent condition. I can't listen to them all, so most will only have visual grading, any with a high start price, I will listen too, and play grade.

THE BEATLES :- RUBBER SOUL... RARE 1965 UK "MONO" 1st PRESS.
"ALL TIME CLASSIC BEATLES ALBUM".
1965 UK EMI PARLOPHONE Matrix XEX 579-4, XEX 580-4.
COVER:- NEAR MINT, VINYL:- NEAR MINT, INNER SLEEVE :- ORIGINAL EMI EMITEX.
Legendary sixth BEATLES studio album. this album was released in the UK On the 3rd December 1965, This is a very rare Beatles album and one of the rarest presses on solid vinyl and nigh on impossible in this condition. In UK 1965 people didn't have good Stereo equipment so most stereo records were ruined by being played on dancette type of gramophone. With heavy playing arms that often damaged the vinyl. A true BEATLES Classic! You would be hard pushed to see a better vinyl record, looks hardly played. I don't need to tell you how many Lp's got scratched and ruined by heavy weighted arms and metal needles. This is the SUPERIOR UK EARLY PRESS version... So hard to find in any playable condition, as they have been squirrelled away in collections or worse thrown away, Nearly all copies that turn up have terribly worn Covers, mostly with the owners name written on them. I believe that there are very few better Condition Beatles albums, you would be hard pushed to find better.
The sleeve is laminated front, not the back, without any Major creasing. An opportunity to own a Mega Rare true BEATLES classic.
YEAR OF ORIGINAL RELEASE/ COUNTRY OF MANUFACTURE:
STEREO - 33RPM
Side 1. XEX 579-4
Side 2. XEX 580-4
EXCELLENT :- Play amazingly well, no pops, no distortion, no jumps, no clicks, very few plays
NEAR MINT : - . The vinyl is bright and has a shine No damage or audible scratches, light marks.
NEAR MINT :-The cover is the Garrod & Lofthouse.. Look at the photo's.....wonderfully laminated front cover, the condition remarkable consider it's age, has no splits or tears, please look at the photos the cover is prone to wear due to the lack of lamination (Back) No writing or damage,rare in this condition. In 1965 they were not cheap at the time at 21/6.+ the average wage being £25 at the time. Most copies were played to death. This Sleeve is in amazing condition.
EXCELLENT. Original Emitext type, ... being the very fragile inner sleeve is a great indicator of the amount of usage the album has had. I would say the inner is the best you could find! and considering how fragile these are.....they are nearly 50 years old, quite unbelievable intact condition.
Clean, no damage or writing.
GRADING SYSTEM: In order to assist everyone who buys and sells rare discs, Record Collector magazine has originated a set of standards for the condition of second-hand records, I have added a (+) or (-) to my gradings where applicable.
MINT: The record itself is in brand new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. The cover and any extra items such as the lyric sheet, booklet or poster are in perfect condition. Records advertised as Sealed or Unplayed should be Mint.
EXCELLENT: The record shows some signs of having been played, but there is very little lessening in sound quality. The cover and packaging might have slight wear and/or creasing.
VERY GOOD: 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: 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: 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: The record will not play properly due to scratches, bad surface noise, etc. The cover and contents will be badly damaged or partly missing.

I use preformed and standard mailers with stiffeners. I always take the vinyl out in its inner sleeve and place on top of the cover. This is then placed into a soft protective sleeve and packaged with stiffeners for full protection.
