Hi, and welcome to psych_out! I've collected 50's, 60's, and early 70's records of almost every genre - Psych, Prog, Psychedelic Funk, Soul, Rhythm'n' Blues, Pop, Folk, Garage, Acid, Freakbeat, Rock, Jazz e. C and everything in between for all my life!!! Obviously, 90% of the LP's I've ever gotten hold of are completely trashed from the hard living ways and the rock'n' roll, drug and booze fuelled debauchery of all the wild parties of the times, but the golden 10%?Reluctantly, I've decided to offer them to all of you serious record collectors out there!!! Make no mistake, I'll try my best to consistently offer some of the. I aim to put a weekly batch up (time permitting) every Wednesday, all timed to end 10 days later on Saturday night. I'll only ever offer. VERY RAREST UK 1ST PRESS. I won't insult you with later 2nd pressings unless they are of exceptional quality and rarity. I'm sure you love good music as much as me, especially when it's a 1st Press LP, direct from the master tape, as the musicians intended it to be heard none of this "digitally remastered", weak reissued, remixed rubbish from hired hands with one eye on the mixing desk and the other on the clock! If these session men really knew how genius should sound, surely they would've been geniuses themselves? There will only ever be one Hendrix, and that's just a tiny example. Be sure to add me to your favourite sellers list and check my auctions frequently as i'll be listing some gems that you just. Want to miss out on!!

About : Ultra Rare Original 1956 UK 1st Press!!! And therefore had a very small run, and is INCREDIBLY HARD TO FIND, especially in this condition!!! AN absolute classic LP from this incredible legend!!! An astonishing album that really DESERVES to be in EVERY serious 60's / 70's record collection!!! Don't miss out on this MEGA RARE LP!!!
Classic UK 1st Press ridged HMV labels!!! Both sides are FANTASTIC with minimal signs of age, NO writing, NO stickers, and NO tears whatsoever!!! Just has a small amount of ultra light spindle marks from careful light use over the years!!! AWESOME for a 60 year old record!!!Both must grade overall at least as Very Good++!! Spectacular Original 1956 UK 1st Press Vinyl!!! Nice bright, clean and shiny as if it was just pressed!!! Fantastic jet black mirror like surfaces, it looks GREAT for it's age with NO nasty deep scratches whatsoever, and NO deep groove-breaking vicious scuffs whatsoever!!! The only blemishes are just a few light scuff marks, a few hairlines and age marks here and there, and just some of the usual light wispy sleeve traces (only visible in direct angled light) from general use and where it has sat or been removed from it's cover over the years!!!
On a modern, thin LP, these marks would possibly hinder play, but because this is such an ultra thick quality 1st pressing, it plays fine with no trouble AT ALL!!! Used, but definitely AWESOME for a record of this age and rarity!!!Must grade overall at least as Very Good minus!!! Graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not overgraded AT ALL!!! Thankfully, it plays BRILLIANTLY with fantastic mono blast and clarity!!! It really sounds AWESOME with NO hops, hisses, sticks, or skips!!!
Only (like pretty much all records) has low level static in places such as on the run in grooves, just a few ticks here and there and only a hint of ULTRA mild and light "bluesman's fag" static in few and far between places such as on some of the quieter sections, but it truly doesn't overshadow the music AT ALL!!! I'd even argue it gives it added soul!!! An outstanding listen - The music is TRULY loud and clear with that bass, depth, warmth and clarity you can only get from UK 1st Press vinyl!!! FANTASTIC for a record of this age and rarity!!! Must grade overall audiably at the least as Very Good++!!!
Graded STRICTLY to the UK RRPG standards, not trashed or overgraded AT ALL!!! Original UK 1956 HMV fully laminated flipback sleeve complete with original inner!!! IMPOSSIBLE to find this sleeve in anything approaching a good condition - most are spent, torn and worn due to age and the lifestyles of the buyers of this particular LP!!! This one is NOT, and looks AWESOME, especially considering the nature of these fragile sleeves!!! NO really bad marks AT ALL, NO seam splits, and still ultra strong and solid after all these years!!!This sleeve only has a few signs of ageing such as some light creasing and a hint of a record imprint, a little curling and some small tears along the opening edge edges from storage it. S the only thing which stops me grading this higher - nothing major and.
NO pieces missing whatsoever, just a little mild seam rubbing here and there and only. Some minor dulling to unlaminated back minimal and nothing drastic - NO stains, writing, graffiti, OR ugly grubbiness whatsoever!!!, a touch of denting to the four corners which basically ALL vintage LP's have, and POSSIBLY just to be sure!!! One or two other minor signs of age here and there, though nothing that really stands out to note at all!!! And that's truly about it!!!
I tend to bring it down by listing the most minor negatives I can possibly find, but this remains a truly AWESOME sleeve, and a SERIOUS rarity to find one as fantastic as this - most have been virtually destroyed or are just about being held together, but not this one!!! It remains ultra strong, solid, unsplit and unspoilt, and even the spine remains ultra strong, solid, unsplit and readable!!!
Must grade overall as Very Good minus!!! A FANTASTIC example of this INCREDIBLY RARE classic original 1956 HMV debut Mono UK 1st Press LP!!! Hard to find in ANY condition, but SERIOUSLY RARE TO FIND ONE AS SONICALLY AWESOME AS THIS!!! YOU MAY NEVER GET THE CHANCE AGAIN, so don't miss out on this scarce opportunity to own a true piece of 60's/70's music history!!! Please take a look at all my other auctions for many other ultra rare classic LPs, and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.Thanks again for looking, it's truly appreciated!! I've realized that most countries have their own unique grading system. I base mine strictly on the UK RRPG grading system occasionally with a + or a - to indicate the higher and lower ends of the grade, though I only use these if i'm having real trouble deciding! , so please check their chart for further clarity if you are unsure of what my grades mean. As a general rule, a mint record will be 100% perfect, an excellent record will be in fantastic clean condition with the occasional mild mark and minor use from the years, and a very good record will have noticeable, yet light visual markings and obvious signs of age and use, but will still remain clean with relatively light wear and will play fantastically well with plenty of life remaining in it. I very rarely offer records below the very good region unless they are of an EXCEPTIONAL rarity and playing quality...
