Pink Floyd See Emily Play UK picture sleeve promo
Over the next few weeks I will be selling some of the best pieces from my collection. I have worked in the record industry since the 1960s, and as a teenage plugger for Decca in the mid-60s I witnessed the birth of many of these 45s, and received the earliest copies of them. Many are promos, and there are demos and acetates aplenty. Bands represented include the Beatles, the Stones, <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Bowie and others, as well as legendary psychedelic one-offs.
Please note that, though I am a first-time seller, I am 100% reliable and refer you to my friend 'volehead' for any reassurance you might require - he has over 580 positive feedback comments and a 100% rating, and is grading and describing my items for me.

See Emily Play / Scarecrow
1967 (16th June given on label)
On offer here is an original copy of one of the world's most sought-after 45s, which was only produced in a very limited edition as a giveaway to DJs.
The sleeve shows minor signs of age in the form of a few unobtrusive pale brown marks, but nothing major such as tears or writing.
The vinyl is marked but not scratched and plays through with minor surface noise but no sticks or jumps.
The labels on both sides are clean and free of writing.
'Whilst working as a promo man at Decca, I frequently found myself at the opposition's HQ -EMI! My pals there would give me their latest efforts and I would do likewise, hence the presence of this in my collection all these years later. My next encounter with the Pink Floyd was during my stint in LA in the mid-70s, when my cricket team played against theirs!'
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A GUARANTEED ORIGINAL AND NOT A COUNTERFEIT.
PAYPAL IS PREFERRED BUT UK CASH AND CHEQUES ARE ALSO WELCOME.
GOOD LUCK - AND REMEMBER: IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS, WE CAN WORK IT OUT... THE BIDDER IS ALWAYS RIGHT!
