Rare 1957 HMV "Elvis Presley No 2" LP for sale. The LP was released in the UK in April 1957 & entered the UK charts on 4th May 1957, peaking at number 3. It is a very, very early UK pressing. The matrix numbers are G2 - WP7207-2N (SIDE 1) and G2 - WP7208 - 1N (SIDE 2). Vinyl: Plays through on both sides with one very small skip on track 2 side 2.
There are visible amounts of scuffs and scratches which do lead to crackling especially noticeable in quieter parts of the LP. The labels are very clear to read. Someone has written initials (NB) but this only slightly detracts. I would therefore grade the vinyl as good only.
Sleeve: As the photographs demonstrate the sleeve does have some obvious wear. The spine is just legible but intact. There is a tear at the bottom of the front of the sleeve and creases on both sides. The laminated rear of the sleeve is in very good condition. There is no writing on either side.Overall i have photographed the vinyl and sleeve to give a accurate reflection of the condition of this LP. Having played it through it is still a very enjoyable demonstration of the early Elvis' raw talent showing his ability to cover rock, gospel and country music. I have therefore priced this LP reasonably. An LP which is 63 years old and that is neither mint nor poor.
