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!!!
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!!!
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
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!!!

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