Hello. If you are reading this listing you probably already know this but … this generally considered to be the rarest Rolling Stones LP pressing. Its a London ffrr stereo pressing made in the UK for export … no-one knows for certain its original intended destination … theories include that they were for export to Scandinavia, Hong Kong or even the US. Super rare, very sought after by Stones collectors and only comes up for auction infrequently as a result. I'm selling it because I've just managed to buy a copy in even better condition from a charity shop!!!!! I've been putting off selling this for over a decade because I just love the darn thing but who needs two of them eh?
The vinyl of this copy has clean labels and sits flat on the turntable, there are some light spindle marks though. I would say it grades (RRPG grade) VGminus as there is light crackle and there are a few moderate pops in places. I've played it a few times on 2 turntables and there are definitely no jumps, no deep scratches, no sticking, no warp, no dishing.
The sleeve hasn't had quite such a good life. The best bet is for you to look very very closely at the photographs. The main issue is that it is falling apart … one side is completely split and the other is heading very much in that direction. At some point in its life the sleeve has been taped round the edges. It is very, very warn. It is, however, still just about complete and intact. The only writing on it is very small '13' written just to the left of the London logo on the front sleeve top right hand corner. There are also lots of age spots on it. Check the photos closely, if you need more photos sent to you just let me know.
Catalogue number is PS 402, matrix numbers are ZAL 6483-2L / ZAL 6494-3L. Unfortunately it doesn't have the original inner sleeve.
JUST IN CASE WE FORGET WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT …. THE MUSIC IS AWESOME, the sound on this pressing is good and punchy.
Here’s the general stuff:
Records are graded according to the Rare Record Price Guide / Record Collector magazine guidelines. If you are unsure of these please check them out on the Record Collector web site before bidding - its available on their home page at recordcollectormag.com.
If you win more than one auction please wait for me to send an invoice before paying as I will need to work out the postage, if you pay before me sending an invoice for multiple items then I am afraid I CANNOT REFUND THE COMBINED POSTAGE, I CAN ONLY REDUCE IT BEFORE YOU PAY! In other words, I do multiple item postage discounts. I always obtain proof of posting at the Post Office. Normally I can send 3 or 4 records for the same price as 1.
Generally I dispatch the first working day after payment is received. Occasionally though, due to work commitments, it might be a couple of days.
All records are sent out well packaged, at the very least with stiffeners and with a note such as ‘Fragile contains vinyl records, please do not bend’ or similar written on the outside.
I now only accept payment by Paypal or cash on pick-up, no cheques any more I’m afraid.
All sales outside the UK have shipping via the eBay Global Distribution Centre and it is they that determine the cost, not I (in fact, I have no idea how much each overseas buyer is charged for shipping). Please note that the eBay Global Shipping Programme does not allow combined postage for multiple wins (sorry … its their policy, nothing I can do about that).
Once you’ve received and used the item you’ve won please leave feedback for me and I will, of course, do the same for you. Generally I leave feedback just after I have sent the item out.
In the highly unlikely event of dissatisfaction with the item that has been won please contact me direct in the first instance and I‘m sure we would be able to negotiate something in a co-operative manner. I endeavour to describe accurately and take all precautions with packaging. I believe my feedback record supports the sound service I’ve provided to people who have ‘won’ auctions.
