snw_ecpWhat's on offer?: Almost without the need for introduction, here we have a SIMPLY LEGENDARY NUGGET from the MERSEYBEAT and BRITISH INVASION scenes - particularly as this copy is an ORIGINAL FIRST STEREO UK FACTORY SAMPLE PRESSING in OUTSTANDING condition!!!

 

A SIMPLY ESSENTIAL DISC FOR TRUE MERSEYBEAT and BRITISH INVASION FANS and 60s COLLECTORS IN GENERAL!

 

Artist: GERRY and THE PACEMAKERS

(The Beatles, The Cavern Club)

Title: "How Do You Like It?"

Label: Columbia SCX 3492 (UK Original STEREO FACTORY SAMPLE)
 

Matrices: YAX-1066-1/YAX-1067-1

Stampers: '1' at 9 o'clock, 'G' at 3 o'clock

 

AN ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE GEM - EVERY COLLECTOR'S DREAM!!

 

 

Here we have MERSEYBEAT legends GERRY and THE PACEMAKERS with a totally fantastic MERSEYBEAT R&B disc in the ORIGINAL UK STEREO format and with EARLIEST POSSIBLE STAMPERS!!!  I'm not sure how many copies were pressed outside the standard MONO format, but I have to say it can only have been a very small run!!!  Issued in 1963, this gem of a FACTORY SAMPLE came from the collection of the late LAURIE SELLSTROM, an EMI sales representative based in Scotland.   Gerry and the boys absolutely tear into some classic R&B numbers, with their renditions of CHUCK BERRY's 'Maybellene', PIANO RED's 'Right String But the Wrong Yo-Yo' and CARL PERKINS' 'Slow Down' all of particular magnificence!!!

So, bid now to win this gem or, after the auction has ended, you can sit back in your chair and wonder how you managed to let this MONSTER BEAT BRITISH INVASION RARITY pass you by!!!

 

Use the Auctionplayer to hear for yourself just how amazing the super STEREO sound of this LP truly is!!!

 

As you'll see from the photo, this is unconditionally guaranteed to be the ORIGINAL 1963 UK 1st FACTORY SAMPLE STEREO pressing made with machine-stamped matrices, so you can forget about having to settle for one of those dodgy so-called "limited re-pressings" (many of which are actually bootlegs) that are flooding the market.

A TRULY fantastic and legendary LP, any fan of Gerry and The Pacemakers, the Merseybeat or British Invasion scenes or 60s music in general will simply have to have this item in their collection!!!!

Grade (labels): The classic EARLIEST black labels with blue 'Magic Notes' logo, silver print and 'Sold in the UK.....' text are in AS NEW condition; absolutely NO wear and NO spindle trails.  The item was sourced from the collection of the late-LAURIE SELLSTROM and the 'A'-side bears a FACTORY SAMPLE label!!!

Grade (vinyl): Housed within its original 'Emitex' poly-lined inner bag, this vinyl masterpiece is truly awesome and strictly graded at MINT; I think this had never before been played prior to my selective play test!!!  Sitting perfectly flat on the turntable, the deep-grooved platter has a factory sheen and plays wonderfully loud and clear throughout. Of course, with the hyper-sensitivity of modern styli and amplifiers, any lucky winning bidder would need to accept the likelihood of a 51 year-old hunk of vinyl producing a touch of general noise and static here and there. Good luck in finding another one of these nuggets......... they just do NOT turn up very often in this shape!!!!

Grade (sleeve): The original Garrod and Lofthouse Ltd. sleeve with laminated front, flipbacks and a matt white reverse is in fantastic over all MINT shape; it's hard to imagine it looked any different when it was made 51 years ago!!!  This is the PATENTS PENDING first print of the sleeve and it has nice glossy laminate, white back and a razor-sharp title spine!!!

Why buy?: This is an absolute MONSTER of a MERSEYBEAT BRITISH INVASION gem and always so incredibly sought-after!! Truly a KILLINGLY RARE LP and ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND in TOP condition and in STEREO format, don't miss this incredible example as it might be your only chance to buy an ORIGINAL 1963 UK 1st FACTORY SAMPLE LP STEREO pressing of "How Do You LIke It?" by Gerry and The Pacemakers in magnificent condition!!!

Don't forget: Look to see if I have other rare items on auction at the present time.

 

Check out my feedback and be sure of a great product and service. Happy bidding!!!

BEFORE you bid, please read the following Payment and Shipping terms very carefully and, quite simply, don't make a bid if you're not happy with them:

 

Payment: UK cheques or UK direct bank transfers greatly preferred. Of course, PayPal is accepted but bidders must accept the associated, non-negotiable shipping terms as stated below in "Shipping".

Shipping: Kindly note that the STAMP cost that appears on the label outside of a package absolutely does NOT represent the actual cost of shipping an item!!! For example, each item I sell is carefully packaged inside a PVC sleeve, with factory-cut cardboard stiffeners either side and (to ensure the item arrives in the condition it leaves) shipped individually in a brand new record mailer; unlike some other sellers I do NOT use poor packaging with scrap cardboard - or worse still NO cardboard - inside!

I cannot accept any responsibility for payments/items lost or damaged and not covered by adequate insurance. If you do insist on using PayPal through the eBay checkout, the consequence of PayPal's rigid conditions is that all items must be sent by an adequately insured shipping method with proof of delivery; no exceptions. IMPORTANT: FREE P&P TO UK ADDRESSES (AS REGISTERED WITH PAYPAL) WILL INCLUDE 2ND CLASS RECORDED DELIVERY. THE OFFER RELATES ONLY TO AUCTION ITEMS ENDING AT A VALUE BELOW £51 AND, ABOVE THAT VALUE, THE BUYER WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE EXPENSE OF SPECIAL DELIVERY P&P (cost £10.95). For overseas buyers, on items up to a value of £500, it will mean Royal Mail 'International Signed-For' Airmail at a cost of £16.95 to European Union countries and £19.95 to all other countries. Due to PayPal seller policies and Royal Mail compensation limits, items above a value of £500 will have to be shipped by international courier at a cost to be determined, based upon final value and destination.

 

I do NOT allow personal collection.

Note: I'm just a private individual selling off his private record collection gathered over 30+ years. I am NOT a business!!! I unreservedly retain the right to cancel bids from known defaulters or timewasters. The items I offer for auction are rare and of the highest quality, so please bid with respect!!
