ROLLING STONES 1st LP 1964 DECCA MONO '2.52' 1st Press 1A BRILLIANT EXAMPLE
On offer here is one of the RAREST LPs you will EVER see (especially in this condition!!!!) by The Rolling Stones called "The Rolling Stones" and is an ORIGINAL 1964 UK MONO 1st Pressing on the 1st Press UNBOXED 'Grooved' Decca label!!!! THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!! THIS WAS THE ROLLING STONES FIRST & RAREST LP EVER - AND VIRTUALLY NEVER TURNS UP FOR SALE!!!! JUST TRY AND FIND ANOTHER ONE!!!! IN FACT, THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER LPs OF ALL TIME - AND IS INCREDIBLY TOUGH TO LOCATE!!!! BUT WHAT MAKES THIS LP REALLY SPECIAL, IS THAT IT IS ONE OF THE 'EARLIEST' & RAREST 1ST PRESSINGS OF THIS LP EVER MADE - WITH A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT MIX!!!! AND THIS IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ON THIS LP!!!! THIS IS THE AMAZINGLY RARE '2.52' 1ST PRESSING OF THIS LP AND PLAYS THE ULTRA RARE '2.52' WITHDRAWN 'DEMO' VERSION OF 'TELL ME'!!!! THIS '2.52' MIX SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN ON THIS LP AT ALL (AS IT WAS NEVER APPROVED!), AND WAS IMMEDIATELY CHANGED TO THE STANDARD '4.06' PRESSING OF 'TELL ME' WHICH APPEARS ON ALL LATER PRESSINGS!!!! ONLY AN ABSOLUTELY TINY HANDFUL OF THESE LPs EVER LEAKED OUT WITH THE WRONG '2.52' VERSION - AND MAKE THIS, THE RAREST & MOST SOUGHT AFTER ROLLING STONES LP OF ALL TIME!!!! IT IS ALSO VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT ON THIS 1ST PRESSING - THE '2.52' VERSION OF 'TELL ME' IS NOT ONLY SHORTER THAN THE STANDARD LATER '4.06' VERSION - BUT ALSO A TOTALLY DIFFERENT RECORDING!!!! IT SOUNDS TOTALLY DIFFERENT (AND IN MY OPINION FAR BETTER!) AND IS A SUPERB EXAMPLE OF THE ROLLING STONES AT THEIR VERY BEST!!!! AND OF COURSE, YOU DONT NEED TO TAKE MY WORD FOR IT THAT THIS LP DOES INDEED HAVE THE ULTRA RARE '2.52' OF 'TELL ME', BECAUSE IF YOU TAKE A LOOK AT MY VERY CLEAR PICTURES BELOW - YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE A PICTURE OF THE 'XARL 6272-1A' MONO MATRIX NUMBER (ON THE 'TELL ME' SIDE OF THE LP!) INDICATING THE WITHDRAWN '2.52' RECORDING OF 'TELL ME', AND I HAVE ALSO TAKEN A PICTURE OF THE 'GROOVE SPACING' ON THAT SIDE OF THE RECORD - WHICH LOOKS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT TO THE NORMAL VERSION!!!! THE OTHER SIDE IS 2A, BUT THEN, THE OTHER SIDE REALLY DOESNT MATTER AS IT WAS THE SAME WHATEVER NUMBER WAS USED!!!! AND IF YOU LOOK AT THE 'GROOVE SPACING' YOU CAN IMMEDIATELY NOTICE THAT 'BAND 3' (TRACK 3 'TELL ME'!) IN THE GROOVES - IS MUCH MUCH THINNER ON THIS 'WITHDRAWN' VERSION - WHEREAS ON THE NORMAL VERSION IT IS MUCH WIDER!!!! THIS LP IS OF THE UTMOST RARITY - AND ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS, AND I AM VERY CERTAIN INDEED, THAT IT WILL BE A VERY VERY LONG TIME (IF EVER!) BEFORE YOU GET THE CHANCE TO OWN AN ULTRA RARE '2.52' 1ST PRESSING OF THIS INCREDIBLE LP AGAIN!!!!
NOT ONLY THAT, BUT THIS LP HAS THE ALL TIME RAREST 1ST PRESS COVER EVER MADE FOR THIS LP!!!! INCREDIBLY, SOMETIME IN 1964 THE TEXT 'MONO' AND 'LK 4605' WAS COMPLETELY MISSED OFF THE COVER (IN THE TOP RIGHT CORNER) BACK AT THE FACTORY!!!! CLEARLY THIS IS A HUGE ERROR AND WOULD HAVE BEEN NOTICED VERY QUICKLY INDEED!!!! AND, AS A RESULT, BARELY ANY OF THESE CAN EXIST TODAY!!!! AND CERTAINLY IN THE LAST 10 YEARS - THIS IS ONLY THE THIRD ONE I HAVE EVER FOUND!!!! SO THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT AT ALL - THAT WITH THIS AMAZING 'MISSING TEXT' COVER ERROR, AND 2.52 'WITHDRAWN MIX', IT IS UNDOUBTEDLY THE RAREST & MOST SOUGHT AFTER VERSION OF THIS LP EVER MADE!!!!
NOT ONLY THAT BUT THIS LP IS IN ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT CONDITION FOR ONCE!!!! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURES!!!! THIS IS THE ORIGINAL 1964 UK MONO '2.52' 1ST PRESSING ON THE 1ST PRESS UNBOXED 'GROOVED' DECCA LABEL, 1ST PRESS 'XARL 6272-1A' SIDE 2 MATRIX ENDING (INDICATING THE WRONG '2.52' VERSION OF 'TELL ME'!), 1ST PRESS 'HANDLING/PLAYING' INNER SLEEVE, AND 1ST PRESS 'MacNEILL' FLIPBACK LAMINATED COVER (WITH MISSING TEXT!)!!!!

The sound quality is simply SUPERB with NO distortion and NO groovewear either!!!! The record must MEGA STRICTLY grade Very Good++++ if not better - and is very VERY close to a grade above!!!!!

Though there are rarely ever any problems with my items (I always try my very best to describe everything exactly!) - PLEASE REMEMBER to contact with me FIRST, if you have any problems at all, before you leave feedback and star ratings, so I get a chance to turn any negative experience into a positive one! I can always happily sort anything out for you, if you let me know you have a problem! This way no one has to leave Negative/Neutral feedback - and we both walk away happy! Please do NOT bid if you cannot give me at least 1 chance to sort everything out to your FULL satisfaction in the unlikely event of a problem. Thanks again - Graham @ XXXRecords. PLEASE NOTE - Private feedback bidders must consult me first prior to bidding - due to previous problems regarding non-payment, and non-receipt. MY POSTAGE UNDERCHARGE GUARANTEE TO ALL BUYERS (I always undercharge on postage!):- Due to UK Royal Mail's obscene price increases this year - I have had no choice but to increase postage charges a little. Until this year - I had kept them exactly the same since I joined ebay back in 2002. However this years price increases have been so obscene, that I have had no choice but to increase my postage charges for the first time ever. However PLEASE NOTE - my absolute 100% guarantee to you as a buyer - is that I will ALWAYS undercharge postage on everything I send out. Even after the increases, I am still charging you the buyer LESS than I am being charged myself. On each package I send out - the price is clearly stated on the front of the package (please check it when you recieve it!). I also do NOT charge for packaging costs - ONLY for postal costs! And should you find that I have overcharged you postage in ANY way - I will refund DOUBLE the difference. THAT IS MY 100% POSTAL GUARANTEE FOR EACH AND EVERY BUYER! No buyer EVER deserves to be overcharged on postage - and on my listings, I'll make sure they are ALWAYS undercharged. Any questions - please ask!
After questions - please note that the 'Tell Me' side does have the ALL IMPORTANT '1A' matrix indicating the WITHDRAWN 'Demo' 2.52 mix of 'Tell Me'!!!! The other side (which is completely unimportant as the mix was never changed on that side!) is 2a. Of course, as I just mentioned, that side isnt important at all - as the mix was only ever changed on the 'Tell Me' side ONLY - which has the EARLIEST & RAREST 1st Press 1a matrix!!!! Which is why the official and definitive UK RECORD COLLECTOR 'Rare Record Price Guide 2016' states:- "64 Decca LK 4605 ROLLING STONES (1st Pressing. plays 2.52 version of "Tell Me"; Side 2 matrix XARL 6272-1A)" Which is EXACTLY what this has! It has the 1ST PRESS ONLY 'XARL 6272-1A' Side 2 matrix (the 'Tell Me' side!) - clearly showing that this LP plays the ULTRA RARE and WITHDRAWN 2.52 'Demo' mix of 'Tell Me'. WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT MAKES THIS LP SO VERY RARE AND SOUGHT AFTER!!!!
