ARCADIUM: Breathe A While, UK Middle Earth 1969 1st pressing LP in superb condition. Extremely rare UK underground psych LP. DISC is MINT- visually, super clean and barely played, just a couple of ultra light, barely visible hairlines - very clean looking vinyl! Labels are super clean and indicate just a few plays. MDSL 302-A2, MDSL 302-B3 matrixes.
Audio-Quality: In the long building intro of I'm On My Way you hear the most minimal occasional crackle, just the odd tic here and there, mostly very low key. Just a couple of more pronounced clicks are heard. Rest of the LP plays with superb EX++ to NM sound. The overall audio-quality I rate as EXCELLENT or better, just about as good as it gets for this LP, known for it's not-great pressing quality.
COVER is EXCELLENT, see pics. A few light laminate creases and a tiny tiny nearly invisible rip in back cover, see picture two.
Good Luck bidding!
All LPs are cleaned on the Audio Desk Ultrasonic Vinyl Cleaner for optimal sound-quality.
PAYMENT, SHIPPING & MULTIPLE ITEMS
To get quote for a single item, use shipping calculator. All items or combined totals over 50 GBP will have the additional charge of 8 GBP to cover Tracking. The 8 comes on top of the basic charge.
You will save shipping cost on Multiple items, of course. Wait for invoice and you'll see the combined shipping price. You will NEVER pay more than my actual cost.
Special german-made cruciform-mailers designed for multiple LPs are used, even for single LP packages. The boxes are oversized and thus provide extra corner protection as well as great stiffness to the package. Addtional protection may also be used when found nessesary, such as stiffeners, bubble-wrap, extra corner-protection. I do not charge anything for packing materials.
MINT(-) is as close to new as a used LP or cover can get, unplayed or played 1-2 times at most with no visual sings of use on surfaces.
MINT- is superb, almost like new. No marks, scratches, clicks, noise, or anything else, aside from possibly a barely visible and inaudible hairline or two. All minor blemishes will be mentioned in the individual descriptions.
EX or EXCELLENT is also VERY nice, 2-3 light inaudible marks/hairlines perhaps, no disturbing noise, great sound quality.
