Seller notes: Classic Beatles LP. VG+ condition. MONO Gt Britain Pressing. XEX 481-3N/482-3N matrix marks. Excellent audio.

I am selling some of my personal vinyl collection. Many of these records are UK pressings and were purchased by myself any time from the 1970's onwards. They have been extremely well looked after, most having only been played a handful of times on Linn or Rega turntables with a light stylus tracking force of 1.5 to 1.75 g.

Please read the description below for vinyl condition (as per the Record Collector Grading System), but for most of my records the vinyl can be considered as in near mint or excellent condition, shiny and with no significant marks – basically almost as good as when it came out of the original shop. The covers vary in condition but most are excellent just showing the usual signs of storage. Most have been stored in plastic protective covers.

A word about hairline marks. It is almost impossible to find any non-sealed record without any hairline marks - many had them from new, particularly if sold with cardboard inner sleeves. They are a result of storage and use and have little impact on sound quality. Likewise, very few original vinyl records lie totally flat. As for background noise, all records will have some background noise which varies wildly and often reflects the very variable pressing quality. I have bought new heavy pressing LP's in recent years and many of the original records I am selling not only look better but they sound better! I only draw attention to marks, warping or background noise in my listings if I consider them significant.

All records (unless "mint" to start with) have been cleaned using high quality professional Record Cleaning Machines (either a £3,000 Keith Monks Omni VII RCM or a Moth Pro Mk II RCM) and the best record cleaning solutions such as "Art Du Son". Not only does this wet clean/vacuuming process remove surface marks such as fingerprints, etc, it also significantly reduces background noise and many argue that the lower noise floor results in opening up of the sound and improved fidelity. Following cleaning, records are placed in new inner sleeves and the sleeve is given a new plastic outer protective cover.

Records are then test played on a Rega RP6 turntable through top of the range Graham Slee or NJC phono stages/headphone amplifiers to professional Sennheiser or AKG headphones. This enables me to undertake careful evaluation of the record quality and grade accurately.

This album is The Beatles' superb "A Hard Day's Night" LP on the EMI Parlophone label PMC 1230.

Matrix marks XEX 481-3N/482-3N, Mono GB Pressing.

Vinyl grading is VG+ according to the Record Collector Grading System. It appears moderately played and has light surface marks, but nothing that obviously affects play (no audible scratches). 

Test played superbly with excellent audio and low overall background noise.

The laminated flip back Ernest J Day sleeve is in excellent overall condition as it has been stored in a plastic cover - see large scale photos below. There are a few initials top right rear cover written in biro.

I dispatch worldwide in reinforced heavy duty LP mailers with cardboard reinforcements either side.

I have many other auctions of classic rock albums with more to come so please save me as a favourite seller. Typical postage prices as follows and combined postage with other albums saves money (double album counts as 2 records):

UK: 1 record £3.50, 2 records £4.50, 3 records £6.

EU: 1 record £5.50, 2 records £7, 3 records £8.50.

International: 1 record £8.50, 2 records £10, 3 records £11.50.

Some countries may require International Signed For so please ask.

Please see my feedback, particularly on other records I have sold, and thanks for looking.
