As far as LPs go, you could hardly find one as epochal, or essential as Elvis' 1956 Debut.  From the yell that ushers in 'Heartbreak Hotel' - this is explosive.. 
Kudos to Elvis and his production team in being able to weld the more downhome sound of the Sun material with the impeccably arranged and recorded RCA material, it all flows like a mountain stream.  Genius, and one of the earliest LPs that matters. 

Condition (I Grade NM / EX / VG+ / VG / VG- / G / F)

Sleeve - (CONDITION) Good - Which, incidentally, means not that good at all.  The thin paper sleeve is hanging on the dear life.  Very torn and worn around the sleeve opening.   Seams taped together (probably a long time ago. The spine is broke.  The rear is pretty much all readable.  The front is, at least, virtually complete.   In this condition, you can't use this sleeve to store a record in, anymore without causing further damage.  

Record - (CONDITION) VG minus.  Visually, quite appalling.  Marks and scuffs and small scratches covering the record.  I've rarely seen a record that looked so bad.   The surprising thing though, is that it actually plays a great deal better than you'd expect.  There is background noise, some crackle, there is some distortion, BUT the music sounds surprisingly good, mellow, and listenable.  There's very few serious pops or "clicks" to annoy you, and absolutely no skips and jumps.  The lovely HMV labels are holding up quite well.

Who wants this?  It's way below collector's standard - it's battered and bruised, but this record, and every scratch, note and revolution is music history.  I personally have had a lot of time with the this record and loved it.  I'm very grateful to have come across it and enjoyed it for a while.  The vinyl surface is arguably the worst i've seen, but even with my lightweight setup, i find it a lot more listenable than many other records in visually better condition.  This is a listening copy for somebody who  can appreciate it for what it is, faults and all. 

POSTAGE - £4 2nd Class Recorded UK Postage.  For 1st Class Recorded £5.  Registered on request, at cost.
