THE SMITHS

THIS CHARMING MAN

ONE SIDED TEST PRESSING 7"

WHITE LABEL

THIS IS A ONE OF ONE PRESSING

FIRSTLY I WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE GIVEN ME THE ADVISE I NEEDED TO EXPLAIN WHAT THIS VINYL IS... IM NOT GOING TO NAME THEM ALL, THATS POINTLESS, THEY KNOW WHO THEY ARE...GRAZIE BUT ESPECIALLY TO THE TWO R'S.

THIS IS THE FIRST EVER PRESSING OF THIS CHARMING MAN

IT WAS PRESSED ON MONDAY 26TH SEPTEMBER 1983, WHICH IS CLEARLY STAMPED ON THE LABEL, IT SOUNDS DIFFERENT,OF THIS I HAVE NO DOUBT BUT I HAVE BEEN INFORMED ITS POSSIBLY THE LONDON VERSION OF TCM. ALL ONE-SIDED TCM HAVE A GREEN LABEL, THIS I HAVE BEEN INFORMED IS THE ONLY WHITE LABEL AND WAS THE FIRST PRESSING. the first recording of TCM was on 14th September 1983 on the Peel Session, by which Travis immediately told the band to book themselves into the Studio to record it as the next single.

WHEN I SAY ONE SIDED, THE B-SIDE DOES HAVE WHAT APPEARS GROOVES LIKE A RECORD BUT ARE WIDER APART, THIS IS WHATS CALLED A TONE TESTING.  

WRITTEN ON LABEL  RT 136A - 29  - STAMPER 26 SEP 1983 - ON RUN OUT TO B SIDE FB 7 X 1 AND THEN UNDER IT WITH A LINE THROUGH IT LPFB RUN OUT GROOVE A SIDE RT 136 A-2U-1-1-1   I WILL END THIS AUCTION IF I FEEL YOUR NOT READY FOR SUCH AN ITEM THIS IS THE RAREST SMITHS ITEM EVER TO APPEAR ON EBAY OR IN FACT ANYWHERE. I WILL HAVE NO SLEEPLESS NIGHTS IN DOING THIS, AS MANY OF YOU HAVE DEALT WITH ME IN THE PAST YOU KNOW THE ITEM IS GENUINE AND YOU WILL RECIEVE THE ITEM..   HAND IN GLOVE WHITE LABEL ONE SIDED TEST PRESSING HAD FIVE PRESSED, ONE EACH FOR THE BAND MEMBERS AND ONE FOR JOE MOSS AND HAVE BEEN TOLD ONE EXCHANGED HANDS RECENTLY £2500...THIS IS THE ONLY COPY OF THIS.   THE ONE SIDED GREEN COPY OF TCM COMMANDS ALOT OF RESPECT AND IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND, YET AGAIN ANOTHER ITEM RC MISS TO INCLUDE IN THERE SO CALLED TOP 100, WHICH I BELIVE AS DO MANY OF THE SERIOUS COLLECTORS WHO HAVE CONTACTED ME THIS WEEK, IS AS VALUABLE AS RARE AS ANYTHING ON THAT LIST, BUT THIS IS ON ANOTHER LEVEL IF AT  ALLTHAT WAS POSSIBLE.   THIS VINYL IS IN VERY GOOD+ CONDITION, IT HAS OF COURSE BEEN PLAYED AND THERE ARE SOME SURFACE MARKINGS WHICH OF COURSE DO NOT EFFECT PLAY, I HAVE TESTED THIS AND IT SOUNDS GREAT.      I SHIP WORLD WIDE   SORRY BUT POSTAGE IS ON COST.. I WILL NOT SEND THIS VINYL WITHOUT THE CORRECT INSURANCE TAKEN OUT AT THE BUYERS EXPENSE, THIS WILL OF COURSE BE KNOWN AT THE END OF THE AUCTION... SO IF YOU WISH TO BUY A RECORD OF THIS VALUE AND EXPECT CHEAP FIRST CLASS STANDARD...BUY IT ELSEWHERE?????? REST ASSURED THE COST OF POSTAGE IS NOT A ISSUE, YOU WILL GET THE ITEM FOR WHAT IT COSTS ME TO SEND PLUS MY PACKING FEES I DO NOT OVER CHARGE ON POSTAGE.  WORLDWIDE BIDDERS OF COURSE THE SAME APPLIES, IF I HAVE TO SEND BY SPECIAL COURIER TO COVER INSURANCE THIS IS WHAT WILL BE DONE, OF COURSE AS YET UNTIL THE END OF THE AUCTION I DO NOT KNOW HOW MUCH INSURANCE COVER IS NEEDED. I GUARANTEE THE ITEM WILL BE SENT VERY SECURE, I KNOW ITS UNREPLACEABLE   GOODNIGHT AND THANK YOU

PAYPAL ONLY FOR INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

 

 

THANK YOU FOR LOOKING AND IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE E-MAIL ME, I ALWAYS LEAVE FEEDBACK AFTER I HAVE RECEIVED AS THIS INDICATES YOU ARE HAPPY WITH YOUR GOODS, I ALWAYS RECTIFY ANY PROBLEM IF THE PROBLEM IS BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION BEFORE FEEDBACK IS LEFT.

 

DUE THE UPRISING OF NON PAYING BIDDERS, FIRSTLY SHAME ON YOU AND SECONDLY I WILL REPORT YOU TO E-BAY AND HAVE A NON PAYING BID ALERT TO YOUR ACCOUNT AND GET A REFUND FROM E-BAY WHICH IS SOMETHING THEY HATE DOING AND THEY LOOK UPON THE NON PAYING BIDDERS AS GRIMLY AS SELLERS, AND I WILL ALWAYS LEAVE A NEGATIVE FEEDBACK FOR THAT BUYER SO TO INFORM OTHERS. SO THE RULE IS SIMPLE IF YOU DON’T INTEND ON PAYING PLEASE DON’T BID AS I WOULD RATHER SELL THE ITEM FOR A POUND THAN A FIVER I DON’T GET.
