About the Record

This auction is for a
(I believe) reproduction copy of the George Harrison solo LP 'Somewhere in England'. I believe it's a reproduction as the included disc does not feature labels. However, I can't really find any info regarding how to authenticate these. I am aware that fakes exist of this cover.

This particular copy features the withdrawn, original 'map' cover that lists the original tracks 'Tears of the World', 'Sat Singing', 'Lay His Head' and 'Flying Hour' which were originally vetoed by Warner Bros. for being too downbeat. The original cover of Harrison's face alongside a satellite image of the UK was also rejected. Harrison went back to work on the album, replacing the aforementioned tracks with 'All Those Years Ago' (originally to be a Ringo Starr song, but used by Harrison, with new lyrics, to pay tribute to John Lennon after his death), 'Blood From a Clone', 'Teardrops' and 'That Which I Have Lost'. A new album photo was used of George in the Tate Gallery in London. This new album was approved and released.

Although the back of the album lists the original, rejected songs I cannot guarantee that the disc included plays them since I don't have a record player and the disc has no labels on it. I've included all the information I can regarding the disc though in the way of the matrix numbers that have been hand-etched into the deadwax.

The Cover : EX+
Click on an image to enlarge it.

The cover is holding up really nicely with just a little wear and tears in one or two places. The sleeve is non-laminated and the front has it's original colour with no fading or anything. There's no visible disc impression and only one or two very light little creases. the top seam is holding tight with no wear or splits. The bottom seam has worn in the middle and has split about half an inch with white-wear either side of it. the spine has a little tear in the slick in the middle but hasn't split and the bottom of the spine has been slightly crushed, as can be seen in the photo above. Back cover has just a light hint of disc impression, a bit of wear spotting at the top right and a slightly crushed bottom right corner. Overall, very, very nice sleeve!
Disc (Visually Graded Only!!) : EX+/NM-

The playing surface has a lovely, crisp shine to it and just some very light, faint scuffing in places that can only really be seen under a bright light. Awesome vinyl!!.
