EX/EX Joy Division "An Ideal For Living" ORIG UK Enigma Records PSS 139 EP + PS
About This Record. This is an EX/EX copy of Joy Division's “An Ideal for Living” EP. It is an original first pressing Holy Grail UK 45rpm EP released by Enigma Records (featuring Ian Curtis before he died and The New Order arrived). Enigma PSS 139. Includes the original four panel folded (by the Band) 7" PS. GUARANTEED original that I acquired in 1985 from the owner of Metro Music in Maryland. I sacrificed many rare psych LPs for that trade!
Cover: The cover is in EX Condition with light age wear, and very light creasing along the edges as you can see in the photos. This is the original four panel fold out cover. It has been sleeved and properly stored its whole life and is one of the nicest copies out there I should think.
Vinyl: Nice strong EX condition. Looks better, but some original background noise if you listen real close because of the nature of the original pressing.
Labels: NM. Yes, there is a serrated edge around the vinyl which only the very few originals had. The matrix numbers are: (Side A runout): PSS-139-EP-A-1 EG (Side B runout): PSS-139-EP-B-1 EG.
Shipping: All my records come carefully packed after I clean them on my KL Audio Ultrasonic Record Cleaning Machine and place them in a new rice-paper sleeve equivalent so they will be ready for you to play.
