From my own personal collection, up for sale is arguably the greatest album of all time, "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" album by The Beatles. Originally released in 1967, this is the high quality Japanese pressing released on the Apple Records label in 1976 with catalogue number EAS-80558. See below for more information on these pressings. It contains many timeless classics, including 'With a little help from my friends', 'Lucy in the sky with diamonds', 'She's leaving home', 'When I'm sixty-four' and 'A day in the life'.

1). Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

2). With A Little Help From My Friends

3). Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds

4). Getting Better

The outer sleeve is gatefold style with photos and lyrics, and has the Japanese paper 'sash' wrapped around the left hand side. Also included is the 'Sgt. Pepper's Cutouts' insert as well as the fold-out sheet with Japanese lyrics. The disc itself has been stored inside a soft polylined inner sleeve since purchase.


I will dispatch the album in reputable packaging designed to protect the contents from damage. Wherever possible I offer a combined postage discount, so please look at my other items on sale. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

Content: 13 tracks - See above for full listing

Catalogue Number: EAS-80558 (on label & cover)

Label: Apple Records

Release year: 1976



Vinyl: Mint-:  Clean labels, vinyl is clean and glossy. Sound clarity is superb and surface noise level is very low.

Cover and Inserts: Mint-: Tiny bump to one corner of cover, otherwise like new.


Unless otherwise stated, all records I am currently selling are from my own personal collection. They have been looked after over the years, stored vertically and not tightly packed. My albums have only been played on a good quality turntable & cartridge setup (currently Rega Planar 3 & Goldring G1020) which I believe will have helped to minimise play wear to the discs.

Japanese vinyl releases are premium quality pressings, much sought after by audiophiles and collectors alike. Japanese pressings are synonymous with quality - the vinyl shines like no other vinyl - everything about their releases feels special. The sonic quality of Japanese pressings is considered to be among the best in the world and, in addition, they are beautifully presented, their covers usually printed on better quality heavy stock paper and often including a bonus lyric insert with dual language Japanese & English text. Nearly all Japanese LPs were issued with an ‘obi’ - literally translated this means ‘sash’ and is derived from the obi (sash) worn around the traditional kimono dress. This delicate paper strip, usually wrapped around the left side of the album cover, often contains marketing information and album content details, all printed in Japanese kanji and katakana script. Obi designs can be as varied as the LPs they adorn, and some series of obi designs can be as collectable as the artist’s albums they decorate. Obis make a unique, attractive addition to the overall package and are becoming increasingly rare, especially on LPs from the 1960s and 70s. Their delicate and disposable nature meant that very early obis were routinely discarded, so that now they can often be worth several times more than the record they accompany.


Regardless of your musical taste, Japanese records make a stunning addition to any collection. Audibly and visually they present the collector with a feast of delights. Japanese records, complete with inserts and obi, are becoming rarer every day. Whatever the digital age throws at you there is still a valid opinion that says vinyl sounds best; with Japanese records you get top quality pressings, a tactile picture sleeve that looks stunning and you can sing along from the lyric insert. This is the real alternative to a download!"




All albums are graded visually and audibly unless stated. I try to be as accurate as possible here, but if you are not satisfied with your purchase I do offer a full refund so please contact me before leaving feedback in this instance.


Records are graded according to UK Record Collector Magazine:


MINT: The record itself is in brand new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. The cover and any extra items such as the lyric sheet, booklet or poster are in perfect condition. Records advertised as Sealed or Unplayed should be Mint.


EXCELLENT (EX): The record shows some signs of having been played, but there is very little lessening in sound quality. The cover and packaging might have slight wear and/or creasing.


VERY GOOD (VG): The record has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticeable surface marks and the occasional light scratch. Normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items, without any major defects, is acceptable.


GOOD: The record has been played so much that the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and mild scratches. The cover and contents suffer from folding, scuffing of edges, spine splits, discolouration, etc.


FAIR: The record is still just playable but has not been cared for properly and displays considerable surface noise; it may even jump. The cover and contents will be torn, stained and/or defaced. "


Plus (+) or minus (-) afterwards indicates slightly above or below the above grades.
