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....

THE VINYL MINT- INCREDIBLE CONDITION
As you can see, this vinyl is the EARLIEST 1977 1st UK pressing -Stored from new this LP has seen a couple of plays only, and remains in pristine condition everywhere. The vinyl is quite incredible.
This first pressing is a superb vinyl which has retained its amazing glossy sheen and finish. There is no dulling anywhere and overall it is in incredible condition for an LP of this age. The edges are silky smooth, typical of these vintage pressings. We are seing fewer and fewer copies of this LP, so rarely do we see a copy at all, let alone like this.
No spider lines around the centre hole, and no wear to the spindle hole whatsoever. SURPLUS WAX AROUND THE CENTRE HOLE
There is barely a hint of any whisp lines and thats it- nothing else! There are some light dust flecs confirming the LP has been stored in its sleeve for decades..its really quite amazing.
Clearly this LP has been archived for many many years..IT REMAINS IN ASTONISHING CONDITION.
OVERALL THIS IS SIMPLY A MUST FOR ANY COLLECTION. YOU WILL NOT SEE BETTER.
THE LABELS MINT FLAT MATT LABELS
THE SLEEVE MINT- SUPERB COPY NO WEAR.
Correct UK LOW GLOSS FINISH SLEEVE first issued earliest sleeve with SQUARE SPINE
This is straight out the box from 1977 - incredible condition , we do not auction any sleeves that we deem to have 'wear' so rest assured you are looking at a sleeve of stunning condition..
FINDING A COPY OF THIS SLEEVE THIS GOOD IS PRETTY MUCH IMPOSSIBLE AS IT WAS A TERROR FOR EASY DAMAGE AND RING WEAR, SCUFF ETC..
BUT..NOT THIS ONE!!!!
The edges are all super clean with no traces of rub, at all , and all colours and inks remain in outstanding condition. This sleeve which is so hard to preserve without wear has clearly been stored away for decades!
No powdery white ringwear or even ring press of any note, and all edges are super crisp.
NO edge rub of any note - amazing!!
The open edge remains in immaculate sharp condition with no real signs of handling
The spine edge is totally unmarked -no dinks or wear at all.
There are a few little spider lines over the edges and a couple of fine hairline creases - on bottom of front right and top left of the sleeve, and one litle price sticker 'dull spot' on the cover..but seriously! these are such small things compared to 99.9% of Bad Reputation sleeves which are always worn and suffer bad ring press etc..this sleeve shines like new and has clearly been stored away for decades..

Original thick paper 'photo' inner..immaculate no wear or damage a real beauty
