I have decided to slowly start parting with my own personal vinyl collection. This has been a difficult decision. I spent many a happy year, hunting, buying, upgrading my collection. I will try and provide as much info as possible, but if you require more photos or any other info don't hesitate to get in touch.

The collection consists of Rock, Prog, Psych, Folk, Beat predoninantly from the 60's and 70's. Plenty of Vertigo, Harvest and Island originals as well as Beatles, Stones, Hendrix, Who etc.

I would consider all items to be at least EX, however please read my descriptions where I will try and point out any flaws.

I will also include multiple photos in my listings, detailing as much as possible.

Bid with confidence - I am a long time collector. I understand collecting and grading. I don't overgrade and will refund you fully on return of the item if not entirely satisfied.

Vinyl will be seperated from the sleeve, placed in a new antistatic inner and card outer for shipping. The original inner will be included if present (check description)

I use cruciform record mailers with stiffeners for safe, secure shipping.

All UK items will be sent by 1st class recorded. I will combine postage where possible, I always undercharge P&P costs - please bear this in mind when leaving feedback/DSRs.

Overseas postage will ONLY be sent by registered/recorded delivery and the full value will be declared to customs so please don't ask me to reduce this.

Thanks for looking.




YEAR - 1966




Matrix Numbers are machine stamped on both sides.

Side One XEX - 605-2 (1NH)

Side Two XEX - 606-2 (1T)


The labels are Parlophone black and yellow labels with bright silver print, consistent with the original pressings. The 'KT' tax code is clearly visible. The 'Sold In The UK' text is present along the top part of the label. The label has 'Dr. Robert' spelling. There are some spindle marks evident but the labels have no discernible flaws and are in EXCELLENT PLUS condition, I use mint only for sealed records.


Visually the vinyl lays flat on the turntable with no warps. It weighs 161g

Visually I would grade this EXCELLENT  It has some light hairlines, not excessive and nothing deep enough to sound, mainly sleeve removal marks from the looks of things. Side one is nice and clean but side two has a couple of visible paper scuffs, but they don't cause any deterioration in sound quality.

I don't claim the record to be unplayed (or 1 play) as some dealers do. I collected these records to play them, however my collection was well looked after and so big that none of my records were played too often as I always had a new batch to play! Also my records have only been played on decent equipment, the stylus changed regularly.

I am very strict with my grading and offer 100% satisfaction or your money back on return of the item.

Record Collector Definition

EXCELLENT The LP or single 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.

So how does it sound?

I cleaned the record using a carbon brush, then wet cleaned it using the Okki Nokki cleaning machine before play testing.

I'm not going to bore you with the ins and outs and history of every track, suffice to say that the record plays through with no major flaws, free from sticks, jumps, clicks etc, there is no constant background noise. When I played the album through the first time I played it through my Bose headphones and heard just a little light crackle in the track breaks, but when playing through the speakers I struggled to hear it, I have no problem giving this an audio grade of EXCELLENT 


To protect the record and the inner and I have stored the record in an antistatic plain white inner. The original 'Emitex' inner is present, though showing signs of age


The Garrod & Lofthouse printed sleeve is front laminated with rear flipbacks. The back of the sleeve has 'Patents Pending' text on the bottom flipback and the sleeve also has the 'Dr. Robert' spelling which matches the label. The laminate is nice and clean with light creasing here and there (see supersize pictures), the sleeve has clear legible spine print, with a little corner wear. Please take a close look at the Supersize pictures to see for yourself how good it is. I would say it easily grades as EXCELLENT.

In summary you are buying a very respectable original mono Beatles album, it's not a final upgrade copy for a Mint collector but a decent all over EXCELLENT copy. It's not cheap, but then quality never is. I will package the vinyl separate from the sleeve with plenty of card in a purpose made cruciform mailer. All items will be sent fully insured and trackable. Overseas buyers must pay for either International Signed For or Airsure, this is expensive but provides peace of mind and protection for both buyers and sellers.

We've all bought vinyl on ebay only to be disappointed with the quality, however I offer a full money back guarantee on my records - I do not offer partial refunds, if you are not happy with your purchase I will gladly refund you in full once the item has been returned.

If you need any specific questions regarding condition of the items, please get in touch. I am a collector myself so I understand the importance of condition

 I am strict on my grading and wouldn’t list anything I wouldn’t be happy to receive. 

Please take time to look at my feedback to see how many good comments I have regarding the condition of my items.

Vinyl will be separated from the sleeve for shipping.

The vinyl will be placed in a new anti-static bag and protective card outer.

Any questions regarding condition, please feel free to ask prior to bidding.


For LPs and singles I use the Rare Record Guide grading system detailed below:

MINT The LP or single is in brand new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. The cover and any extra items are in perfect condition.

EXCELLENT The LP or single 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 LP or single has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticeable surface marks and an occasional light scatch. Normal wear and tear on the cover and contents without any major defects.

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



Delivery Times

 I aim to despatch all items with 36 hours of payment. If you check my feedback you will see numerous comments on the speed of delivery.

I only use 1st Class recorded postage to protect both buyers and sellers. Items over £50 will be insured

Unfortunately once I have posted the item, it is then in the hands of Royal Mail who state that 1st Class should take 2-3 days however the reality is that this isn’t always the case. It is not uncommon  for items to take 5 days to arrive.

We all know how frustrating it is to be waiting for our new purchase only for it to be delayed in the post, but please be reasonable and don’t take your frustrations on the postal system out on me.

If your item hasn’t arrived 7 days after despatch please get in touch. Don’t open a case or leave me negative feedback. I am a reasonable person and like to think that any problem can be resolved with communication.

 I obtain proof of postage on ALL items.


Postage & Packaging Costs

Postage costs have increased dramatically over the last 12 months.  Unlike some I don’t make a profit from postage.  Ebayers who sell know these costs, however some customers are oblivious to the cost of actually getting their item to them.

A single vinyl album packaged properly costs £4.10 just for 1st class recorded delivery, this does not include the price of the antistat bags, card outers, cruciform mailers, labels, ink, card stiffeners, bubblewrap etc.

Please consider these costs when leaving me feedback and DSR’s.

If you have any questions regarding postage and packaging cost please get in touch.

Overseas Postage

Overseas postage has become very expensive. For items over £25 I will only use either International Signed For or Airsure services. 

Also I always declare full value of the items for customs purposes as I need to for the insurance, please don't ask me to lie. Overseas customers are responsible for all import taxes that may be due on expensive items.

Customer Service

This is very important to me. I am not a big corporation selling 1000’s of items a day with no regard to the customers. I appreciate every order and try to make sure every customer is completely satisfied with their order.

If you are unsatisfied in any way, PLEASE get in touch before leaving bad feedback, low DSR’s or opening a case.

I am reasonable and will work with you to resolve any problems amicably, however I cannot resolve problems if I am not made aware of them.



Your feedback is important to me. I work hard to make sure my customers are happy with their items and if for any reason they are not I urge them to get in touch BEFORE leaving feedback.

Also as a business seller it is important that you leave good DSR’s. Like many sellers I feel this system is very unfair as a couple of low ratings can ruin your business and get you banned for Ebay even if you have perfect feedback.

If there is anything I could have done to make your experience better please let me know.
