NICK DRAKE 'FIVE LEAVES LEFT' ORIG ISLAND PINK BLOCK 1ST PRESS M- /vertigo swirl
Nick Drake ''Five Leaves Left''
Attention: I ship from Italy,I just put it up for sale on ebay uk to get more visibility!Also,as I have only a few feeds,and I understand you may have doubts about me and my gradings,I'll ship the item and you'll pay only when you receive it (this only applies to users with at least 50 positive feedbacks).
Monster rare original Island pink block label in outstanding condition!!!This is one of the rarest releases on the label and it rarely turns up for sale especially in such a nice nick!When released in 1969 it sold very poorly (no more than 2000 copies probably) and it is nowadays highly sought after by collectors;this is the original record with correct matrices A2/B2 and the fragile ''E.J. Day & Co.'' matt fold out cover.
Cover looks really nice,surely better than most of the copies you usually see for sale on eBay;take a look at recent auctions and you'll see I'm not exaggerating;colors are vivid and green...is still green!Just light wear on edges and corners and a light biro writing on rear(which can be deleted by rubbing it with patience);no discoloration,splits,tears,ring...etc;inside is perfect,spine is nice too and perfectly readable;really difficult to find better (unless you want to spend a fortune!)I would grade the cover as EXCELLENT
( Image showing the lowest part of rear cover confirming it's an original copy)
Vinyl is in stunning condition and retains the typical ''mirror effect'';under very strong light you can see a few light paper scuffs caused by contact with the inner,but that's barely worth mentioning;textured labels are clean and don't show spindle marks;plays superb!I would grade the vinyl as NEAR MINT
Definitely keeper copy!!!
For further pictures (please request them so you can get an idea of the general condition of the cover), informations,details and questions don't hesitate to ask,I'll try to answer as soon as possible.Please do not consider ebay shipping rates:contact me and I'll give all the informations you need;
Shipping will be registered/insured (I usually ship on saturday).
Bid with confidence,I've been collecting for years and I know what it means to receive a record completely different from the description given.
THANKS FOR LOOKING!!!
