JOY DIVISION

"LICHT UND BLINDHEIT"

(1979 SORDIDE SENTIMENTAL - MEGA RARE LTD ED NUMBERED 7" EP!)

THIS IS ONE OF THE RAREST PUNK SINGLES OF ALL.

ONLY 1,578 COPIES OF THIS SINGLE WERE EVER PRODUCED. THIS IS A SUPERB, ORIGINAL 100% GENUINE EXAMPLE OF THE RELEASE "LICHT UND BLINDHEIT" BY JOY DIVISION. THIS IS A TWO TRACK FRENCH RELEASE THAT CONTAINS "ATMOSPHERE" & "DEAD SOULS".

THIS PARTICULAR EXAMPLE HAS A NICE LOW NUMBER - 108

I HAVE COLLECTED PUNK AND INDIE ALL MY LIFE AND IT IS NOW TIME TO, SOMEWHAT RELUCTANTLY START SELLING OFF MY COLLECTION AND LET SOMEONE ELSE ENJOY THEM. I THOUGHT I WOULD START OFF WITH THIS AND ANOTHER RARITY FROM JOY DIVISION, ALONG WITH THE FIRST TWO RELEASES BY THE SISTERS OF MERCY - SEE MY OTHER LISTINGS!!

WHAT A RARE RECORD THIS IS!!

THIS IS 100% GENUINE AND THIS IS CLEARLY PROVED BY THE FOLLOWING:

THE TEXTURED ILLUSTRATED FOLD-OUT COVER THE INSERTS AND THE GLUE HOLDING THE POCKET HAS YELLOWED IN THE DEAD WAX ON SIDE 1 - SS33002 A MPO IN THE DEAD WAX ON SIDE 2 - SS33002 B MPO

THE CATALOGUE NUMBER IS 1979 SORDIDE SENTIMENTAL SS 33002

THE SLEEVE

THE ORIGINAL TRIPLE FOLD-OUT CARD SLEEVE IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THERE IS SOME CREASING, SOME LIGHT RUBBING TO THE EDGES AND SOME MINOR SIGNS OF WEAR. INSIDE THE GLUE HOLDING THE POCKET FOR THE RECORD AND INSERTS HAS STARTED TO YELLOW BUT AS MENTIONED ABOVE THIS MERELY REINFORCES THE FACT THAT THIS IS 100% GENUINE. INSIDE THE FOLD-OUT SLEEVE THERE IS A SUPERB EARLY PHOTOGRAPH OF JOY DIVISION WHICH WAS TAKEN BY ANTON CORBIJN

THE INSERTS

THERE ARE TWO INSERTS. ONE IS A SMALL BLUE RECTANGULAR PIECE OF PAPER WITH THE " AVERTISSEMENT" MESSAGE. THIS INSERT IS IN EXCELLENT+ CONDITION. THE OTHER INSERT IS THE FOLD-OUT LEAFLET WITH THE ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF "LICHT UND BLINDHEIT". THIS INSERT IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH JUST A FEW MINOR STAINS FROM THE GLUE IN THE POCKET OF THE OUTER SLEEVE. THE ORIGINAL FLIMSY POLYTHENE SLEEVE FOR THE VINYL IS STILL PRESENT.

THE VINYL

THE VINYL IS IN NEAR MINT CONDITION. I CANNOT SEE ANY MARKS AT ALL. THE SOUND QUALITY IS SUPERB ON BOTH SIDES. 

THE LABELS

THE BLACK & SILVER SORDIDE SENTIMENTAL LABELS ARE BOTH IN NEAR MINT- CONDITION. THERE ARE JUST A FEW TINY SPINDLE MARKS.

RECORD COLLECTOR GRADING SYSTEM

MINT (M) THE RECORD ITSELF IS IN BRAND NEW CONDITION WITH NO SURFACE MARKS OR DETERIORATION IN SOUND QUALITY. THE COVER AND ANY EXTRA ITEMS SUCH AS THE LYRIC SHEET, BOOKLET OR POSTER ARE IN PERFECT CONDITION. RECORDS ADVERTISED AS SEALED OR UNPLAYED SHOULD BE MINT.

EXCELLENT (EX) THE RECORD SHOWS SOME SIGNS OF HAVING BEEN PLAYED, BUT THERE IS VERY LITTLE LESSENING IN SOUND QUALITY. THE COVER AND PACKAGING MIGHT HAVE SLIGHT WEAR AND/OR CREASING.

VERY GOOD (VG) THE RECORD HAS OBVIOUSLY BEEN PLAYED MANY TIMES, BUT DISPLAYS NO MAJOR DETERIORATION IN SOUND QUALITY, DESPITE NOTICEABLE SURFACE MARKS AND THE OCCASIONAL LIGHT SCRATCH. NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR ON THE COVER OR EXTRA ITEMS, WITHOUT ANY MAJOR DEFECTS, IS ACCEPTABLE.

GOOD (G) THE RECORD HAS BEEN PLAYED SO MUCH THAT THE SOUND QUALITY HAS NOTICEABLY DETERIORATED, PERHAPS WITH SOME DISTORTION AND MILD SCRATCHES. THE COVER AND CONTENTS SUFFER FROM FOLDING, SCUFFING OF EDGES, SPINE SPLITS, DISCOLOURATION, ETC. THE USE OF PLUS (+) OR MINUS (-) ALLOWS FOR ITEMS THAT FALL BETWEEN THE ABOVE GRADES.
