Nick Drake

Five Leaves Left

Island Records : ILPS 9105
UK - 1969

Sleeve Condition: VG+ / Media Condition: Near Mint

This is an original 1969 copy of this album is stunning condition having been well looked after by a single owner since new!  The very first pressing of this album has an error on the A side label and the sleeve regarding track order of tracks A4 and A5. After the very first run the error was corrected on the label but not the sleeve - this copy has the corrected label.  Vinyl has A//2 B//2 matrix numbers. Sleeve has some very light wear and a small sticker mark to top right corner (See photos) but free from any serious faults such as tears, writing or seam splits. Lovely early example of this sought after album.

We will aim to respond to your query within 24 hours, so please be patient and trust that we understand the importance of good customer service.

GRADING: All of our records are graded using the standard UK Record Collector Grading system as follows:

  • MINT: 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: 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: 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: 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.
  • FAIR: The record is still just playable but has not been cared for properly and displays considerable surface noise; it may even jump. The cover and contents will be torn, stained and / or defaced.
  • POOR: The record will not play properly due to scratches, bad surface noise, etc. The cover and contents will be badly damaged or partly missing.
  • BAD: The record is unplayable or might even be broken, and is only of use as a collection filler.

POSTAGE AND PACKING: Items will be sent in strong protective packing, using purpose designed mailers where possible. We take care to make sure that the vinyl and inner bag are always removed from the outer sleeve to prevent seam splits, and the vinyl itself will be placed in a soft plastic cover to protect it during transit. Postage discounts are available for multiple items, so please wait to be invoiced if you are making multiple purchases.
