IMPORTANT !! BUY-IT-NOW ITEMS MUST BE PAID IMMEDIATELY , ELSE THE TRANSACTION WILL BE CANCELED AND THE ITEM RE-LISTED==================================================================================================ARTIST: Otis Waygood TITLE: Ten Light Claps And A ScreamFORMAT: LPLABEL: ParlophoneCATALOG #: PCSJ 12077YEAR: 1971COUNTRY: South AfricaGRADE: VINYL : EX to Near Mint (NM) , some light scuffs and very light hairline scratches, which cannot be heard, only heard is some occasional soft crackling between some of the songs, probably due to the pressing qualityMATRIX # in run-out groove is stamped and is SIDE A= YPEAX 1053;SIDE B=YPEAX 1054COVER: Near Mint (NM), very slight corner ding at top & bottom corners at spine, partial very slight half ring crease on opening side, small vertical creases at top front cover and slight crease at 12 o clock on front (only visible if you tilt the cover under bright lamp)Comments: The cover of course is original, no copy, it is same thin flimsy cardboard material, flip-back cover as all South African LP covers, the artwork is very bright compared to the dark colors on the Shadoks? reissue (we have included a picture of the reissue cover so that you can compare the difference yourself.....the strange thing is that the cover of this original is not laminated like most other South Africa issued LP covers. We dont know why some Otis Waygood covers were printed with laminate & some without...it may be something to do with the brightness of colors in the artwork that they wanted to preserve and show.... maybe they thought laminate would disguise the colors ? it's a good result anyway, because the laminate always peels up and cracks and creases in ugly ways with age, so this LP cover does not show that , thank goodness ! This is an LP by Otis Waygood, from South Africa, 1971. Absolute Holy Grail Heavy Psych Monster LP.....Probably will never be seen again in this such beautiful clean condition !! If you are a serious collector of this style of great music, then you will be very happy that you made this purchase.

About Happy Day Records :))I have recently purchased a rather large record collection of various USA & Import (1950's-1980's) Lp's, 7", 10", cassette & 8-Track tapes, music books & magazines from an older music industry radio person. Myself being a music fan & part-time collector over the years, I appreciate the value of some of these items to music fans & collectors worldwide. Obviously I cannot keep everything and so have recruited the services of an experienced long time record collector/dealer/ex-store-owner to help me with the grading & evaluation of these items for my Ebay store.
I have named this store HAPPY DAY RECORDS for a good reason!!
I know from some of my own purchases in the past, that records are often inaccurately graded or incompletely described regarding other defects and often poorly packaged....I aim to ensure that this NEVER happens to any customer of mine. I also know from my previous purchases, how very happy I was when I received a record that had been carefully packaged, shipped quickly and was in the exact condition described. So it is my absolute sincere aim to provide that same Happy feeling to each & every customer of my store through excellent service.Each item listed will be accurately graded so you'll know exactly what you're getting. Of course I am always looking to improve the quality of service and so would appreciate any suggestions or comments from you, a valued customer.My GuaranteeI guarantee every item to be as listed & described. If an error is made in any way (inaccurate grading or description or delayed shipping or anything else), I will make it right either by fully refunding all costs involved (including your shipping charges), or adjusting the selling price to your satisfaction & agreement.

==================================================================================================================================================================Record GradingUnless shown otherwise, every record is an original issue for the label and catalog number given. Here is a brief explanation of my grading system.I use a modification of the Goldmine Magazine standard grading system. That means that there's a grade between NM and VG+ = EX.
I may also,in some cases, add an extra + or extra - to a grade if I feel it necessary.
EX Has a minor flaw (s) not easily visible
VG+ Has a small visible flaw.
VG Has multiple small flaws.
VG- some serious flaws.
All flaws, such as ringwear, creasing, stickers, tears, handwriting, sticker removal damage, punch holes, saw-cuts etc, will be noted in the description part of the listing.
FACTORY SEALED Brand new, never opened, perfect in every way.
NM (near mint) Opened, may be played or unplayed, no visible flaws.
EX (Excellent) Played, but sparingly, vinyl is still very shiny,may have a few sleeve scuffs.
VG+ (Very Good +) Played, but well taken care of, may have light scuff marks,light hairline scratches. Still shiny.
VG (Very Good) Very played, will have minor scratches which will probably be audible.
VG- (Very Good -) Played a LOT. Will have more than minor scratches, but will play through. Only listed if very rare. (Garage sale record)
G (Good) Will play through but with substantial deterioration of the sound. We won't waste your time by listing any UNLESS, the record is extremely rare.
You, being a collector are surely aware that in some cases, old thick vinyl can appear visually scratched up, but sound a lot better than it looks when played ....I will make a note of this in the description if it occurs.
Labels will not be graded, but defects like handwriting, sticker damage etc will be noted in description. COMMENTSDetails of various special features and/or all defects will be accurately described in the "DESCRIPTION" section for each listing.
Please understand that it is not humanly possible to play-grade hundreds of items at a time. Unless otherwise noted, all records are GRADED VISUALLY, however, if you request it, I will gladly have the record PLAY GRADED.=======================================================================================================Payment:IMPORTANT !!
