PINK FLOYD - Atom Heart Mother

Original UK 1st Press Quad LP

Harvest (Q4SHVL 781)

 Rare original uk first press Quad album that is still in its original shrinkwrap. It has the Quad logo on the front of the sleeve denoting a first pressing and comes complete with the Quad inner sleeve. The record is in outstanding collectable condition, looks to be very close to unplayed.



The sleeve is in excellent condition and still in its original shrinkwrap which has preserved most of the sleeve perfectly. There is some shrink missing at the top right of the front sleeve. There is some wear along the sleeve opening keeping the sleeve from near mint. Almost impossible to find in the shrinkwrap.


QHVL 781 A-2 (1 A)

QHVL 781 B-3 (1 M)

Comes with the correct EMI Quad poly lined inner sleeve in excellent condition. Just some discolouration from the original glue used.

Both labels are in near mint condition. There is no spindle wear and i can't see any spider marks. There is no writing.

The record is in outstanding near mint condition with its full original gloss. It really is very close to unplayed. It has been cleaned on a professional cleaning machine and the condition checked several times and there really is practically nothing to see. The record has obviously very rarely been on a turntable.

Please note that we grade all records the same whether they are 40 years old or 1 year old.

Our grading is strict so as not to disappoint, we have been selling on ebay since 1998 & know how important this is. Grading of records is done with the record angled under two 50 Watt halogen bulbs. Pictures are of actual item up for auction.

All records are packed securely & most importantly packed outside of the picture sleeve (in a plain inner sleeve) so as to avoid seam splits during shipping.

Near Mint
Almost mint. Very minor paper scuffs and very little else can appear on the vinyl. This will most likely have occurred during packaging, or removing the record from the inner sleeve but obviously it had been handled with extreme care. Any flaw should be very hard to see. The cover should look as close to perfect with only minor signs of wear and/or age. Minor impressions to the cover (due to the outer edge of the vinyl resting inside) may be acceptable, however the artwork should be as close to perfect as can be.

An excellent condition for vinyl will allow minor scuffs (Scuffs lay on top of the grooves) which are visible but only slightly.The wear should be minimal.The play should be close to perfect as well. Some impression to the cover (minor outer ring wear) but no ink wear. Some slight creases to the corners, but not wrinkled and obtrusive to the eye. The corners can show a little white, meaning slight wear. No seam splits or writing on the cover or taped repairs.

As Excellent but with a larger number of scuffs, maybe a couple of hairlines (very light scratch that can't be felt) or a couple of marks on both sides. Sound quality should still be very close to that of an Excellent record with only minor crackle in quiet segments only, NO scratches that can be felt. Cover as Excellent but there may be a small seam split on the cover, or a very minimal amount of writing like a name written in small writing or a number. A VG++ record should be an acceptable record to live with if you aren't looking to pay the price of a Near Mint copy.
