Description

Jim Sullivan  - U.F.O. (Monnie `70)
Ultra-rare singer/songwriter private press (this issue on Monnie is thought to be the first) with great paste-on photo cover, in nice shape.
Cover: EX, some sort of filing thingamabob attached to upper spine. I'm afraid I'll rip the cover if I try to get it off, so here it is (see photo.)
Previous owner's name written in smallish lettering at the bottom left of back cover.
Disc: EX

Some astute observations from the Acid Archives website:
"Early singer/songwriter sounds with lots of personality and atmosphere. Setting is light folkrock with excellent vocals that seem almost too good for such an obscure title. This guy has lived, man, and seen a few things in life, which gives the album a certain country music vibe without actually sounding country at all. The presence of Earl Palmer and some pretty advanced studio arrangements suggests that someone poured a sack of coins into this project. "Jerome", "Highway" and "Rosey" are standout tracks to me, but this is a surprisingly good westcoast s/sw LP all through.In an enlightened world Jim Sullivan would be in Bel Air while James Taylor would play $15 tourist traps. The Monnie version is probably the earlier and has a somewhat awkward mix with drums upfront, while the self-titled Century City mix has a soundscape more typical for the genre. [PL]"

Your bid constitutes acceptance of all this boring stuff below, so please read it carefully, thanks:

I accept PAYPAL ONLY. Payment is due within 7 days of winning. That's plenty of time in the age of PayPal, yes?
***FAST PAYMENT = FAST SHIPPING***

POSTAGE RATES: Subject to change, this is a ROUGH, honest estimation of postage charges, charged at cost, **including packing materials** as well as the actual shipping.

DOMESTIC U.S. SHIPPING:
Media Mail: $4.00
Priority Mail (faster): $9.50
$1.00 for each additional LP

CANADA / MEXICO:
$9.50 airmail
$3.00 for each additional LP

EUROPE / ASIA:
$13.50 First Class airmail
$24.00 priority airmail
$3.00 for each additional LP
Express airmail also available but more expensive. Inquire if interested.

Once I have mailed your package, I am not responsible for its safe arrival. That's what insurance is for. The postal service is responsible for insured packages only.

Despite what Ebay's shipping chart says, INSURANCE IS MANDATORY FOR ALL U.S. ORDERS.
REGISTRATION IS MANDATORY FOR ALL INTERNATIONAL ORDERS OVER $100 (and highly recommended for international orders under $100)

DOMESTIC (U.S. ONLY) INSURANCE RATES:
Fee . . . . . . . . . . Insurance Coverage
$1.70 ................ $0.01 to $50
$2.15 ................ $50.01 to $100
$2.60 ................ $100.01 to $200
$4.60 ................ $200.01 to $300
$5.55 ................ $300.01 to $400
$6.50 ................ $400.01 to $500
$7.45 ................ $500.01 to $600
$7.45 plus $0.95 per $100 or fraction thereof over $600 to $5,000.

INTERNATIONAL REGISTRATION RATE: $10.80 (in addition to regular postal charges) PER PACKAGE. Although registration only insures your package for $45, it provides a tracking number, and requires postal employees' signatures at various stops along the way, as well as your signature upon receipt of the package. It is known to be a VERY secure international shipping method and is highly recommended. It is REQUIRED for all packages sent from me that are worth $100 or more.
INSURANCE is NOT available for international First Class shipping, but is available for Priority or Express shipping to most countries. However, those rates are much more expensive than First Class - plus, insuring an international shipment will necessitate the declaration of the FULL value of your package on the customs form. International shipping can be a rather mysterious process at times. If you have any concerns or questions about this, please email me.
THANK YOU!
