Welcome to 'Its the vinyl countdown' music auctions. Here you will find some of the most incredible rare records and music memorabilia for your collection. We pride ourselves on auctioning only the highest grade records and items, you will not see anything listed here below EX+ condition, unles the item is extremely rare. You will not see worn covers, warped records or scratched records. We simply do not bother with them.
We list in many cases, 'Archived' & 'mint' condition items, we are able to source from private collections all over the UK. So we hope you can be put at ease that what you are bidding on is of the highest quality.
We play through most of the records, unless the item is clearly mint, or sealed..in which case we don't play them, thus maintaining their 'unplayed' status! Obviously with some of these rare items there will be the odd 'anomoly' along the way , the odd little static pop or lead in 'sizzle' for a split second.. nothing is perfect we find! all systems differ, but we aim to describe these as accurately as possible for you.... PLEASE ENJOY THIS ITEM YOU ARE NOW LOOKING AT..

THE VINYL MINT- 'ARCHIVED' CONDITION
As you can see, this vinyl is the FIRST 1U MATRIX, confirming this is the earliest 1977 pressing. It is in super clean condition barely played!
This is a superb vinyl which has retained its amazing glossy sheen and finish. -There are a few tiny light whisp lines where the LP was slid from the card inner to be placed into a poly liner before storage and a couple of tiny feint hairlines.
A couple of tiny feint spindle skate lines around the centre hole again suggests this LP has maybe had a couple of plays only, superb clean condition!
OVERALL THIS IS SIMPLY A MUST FOR ANY FINAL UPGRADE COLLECTION. YOU WILL NOT SEE BETTER.
THE SLEEVE EX+ stunning
Correct matt finish first issued earliest sleeve by 'E.C.G' with square spine
This is in incredible condition. It is so hard to find a first matt sleeve without that white arcing of ringwear at the top of the sleeve- here we have one!
The edges are all super clean with no real traces of rub, the tips have the tiniest of rub only , all colours and inks remain in outstanding condition- The finish is superb and whereas many copies have powdery wear and scuff, this sleeve remains in absolute top condition
The matt finish has remained super clean - The open edge remains in immaculate sharp condition with noreal hint of handling. Only a couple of tiny light thumb creases on the top and a few spider lins over the edges
The spine is superb sharp and no signs of squash- all titles perfectly readable.
There is some incredibly light and barely worth mentioning, white rub on the back top seam of the sleeve.
WE CLARIFY BY SAYING, THIS SLEEVE IS A BEAUTY, AND THE VINYL IS ALSO AS GOOD AS YOU COULD FIND.
THE INNER SLEEVE MINT-
Thin card inner , with round corners & thumb groove , no wear -one tiny blister on the side edge.
VINYL HOUSED IN POLY LINER FROM NEW.
the bonus 7" single is MINT condition.
