Welcome to my auctions....check out the other vinyl listed, more added each week and follow me so you don't miss out.

My dad was a private collector, he collected thousands and thousands of records from 1950's to early 2000's, many are rarities, obscurities and some are unique, I am not a dealer, just selling the collection now he is unable to do so himself.

You can expect great service/fast dispatch/super strong packaging/combined shipping and honest, no nonsense gradings BUT Please read descriptions.

Relisted due to timewaster - Please only bid if you can pay.

Muddy Waters – The Best Of Muddy Waters - 1st UK Red & Yellow Pye International R&B Labels – Mono - Very Rare Press - 1964 - 1st UK Mono Pressing – Flipback Mono Sleeve - Great Condition Vinyl and Really Nice Sleeve

NPL 28040


ILP 12040 A -1M

ILP 12040 B - 1M

Side 1 has only a handful of very faint hairlines, a tiny needle mark, a faint scuff and a few small faint marks, nothing that can be felt, Side 2 has a couple of very faint hairlines, a couple of faint groove marks, Apart from that, on both sides, there are some extremely light sleeve removal marks, Still has a Great Shine and for 50 years old...Great Condition. The Record has been stored for years and will benefit from a proper clean, I will let the new owner do this.

PLAYTESTED fully and it plays all the way through with no sticks, jumps or skips. The Audio Is Strong, Vibrant and Clear with No Lessening In Sound Quality. There is light static and the odd click in the quiet parts, which during the louder tracks is not as noticable. A Really Great Listen.

Labels are clean, No wear or damage, some signs of being played under strong light (spiders legs)...see photos Great Labels

Earliest Laminated Front, Unlaminated Back, flipback Garrod & Lofthouse Patent pending Mono Sleeve has some wear, Front is flat and clean and still glossy. Light rubbing mainly near bottom, there are a couple of tiny creases from top edge and a couple of creases from spine edge, Top left corner has wear, other Corners are pretty crisp with only slight wear. Top edge has no wear except near left corner and Bottom Edge has a handful of tiny spots of wear near middle, Opening edge has only light wear near top, traces of old selotape residue along front opening edge, inside opening and a brown line along back opening edge, Spine is mostly readable with no wear except near top, The back is still pretty white with no rubbing/fading, flipbacks are crisp, top right has creasing to flipbacks....A Nice example of this rare sleeve that is very flimsy. See Photos

White Paper Inner is flat and still pretty clean with no splits or damage just a couple of light creases.

A Very Rare Earliest 1st UK Press Mono LP In Great condition.

I will describe any flaws such as wear to sleeves, scuffs, marks or scratches to vinyl and describe them honestly, if you expect a better condition than I have listed then you need to learn to read. I will grade based on visual inspection under artificial light. PLEASE remember this is Vinyl...even brand new vinyl can have clicks and pops...that's part of its charm...if you want perfect audio without background about CD's or MP3's?


With that said....many rarities will be listed, some fair condition some near mint.

Any questions...please ask.

Premium quality cruciform record mailers will be used with 2 sheets of additional cardboard.

All records are sent Sign For, Tracked and Insured for the purchase price, The postage cost reflects this.

I combine shipping costs after the auction for multiple purchases.

UK - £5.00 2nd Class Sign For

Europe - £13.00 International Tracked and Signed
