On sale here is the following 7 inch single:

FORMAT: 7 Inch 45 rpm ("Demonstration Sample")

LABEL: Deram

ARTIST: Tintern Abbey

YEAR: 1967

TRACKS: Beeside / Vacuum Cleaner (MacTavish)


CATALOGUE NUMBER: DM164 (both sides) / XDR 41691 (a side) / XDR 41692 (b side)

MATRIX STAMP / RUN OUT: XDR 41691 TI-IC (a side) / XDR 41692 TI-IC (b side)

CONDITION OF RECORD (PLAYING SURFACE): Clean and plays without fault. The record has no warps (heat damage) though plays with an incredibly mild 'undulation' (refer to the video referenced below for more information) which has no impact on the sound. The record has some light surface markings, some of which are audible as a mild crackle on the quieter segments, but no jumps. As a very conservative / subjective grade, I would classify the playing surface as 'Very Good' (as defined by the definition below).

RECORD COLLECTOR DEFINITION OF 'VERY GOOD': "The record has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticeable surface marks and the occasional light scratch. Normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items, without any major defects is acceptable..."

CONDITION OF LABELS: Excellent. No writing or sticker marks. Some light 'spindle' markings around the centre hole are evident if angled towards the light. All four pins intact and strong.

CONDITION OF SLEEVE: Original Deram company sleeve. Intact with no tears or writing. Some mild age browning evident and soft creasing / crumpling.

YOU TUBE: You can also view my film of this item on You Tube at the link shown below:


In the comments box on this You Tube film are direct Mediafire hyperlinks which will allow you to download full size jpeg scans and audio of both sides of the record (without any audio correction). Due to copyright restrictions, I cannot upload any audio of the tracks to You Tube.

For ease of reference, I have copied below the same Mediafire links to these same files, though they are not hyperlinked (so you will have to copy and paste them into your browser to access them). If you visit You Tube, the links are fully hyperlinked.



The scans uploaded with this listing are of the actual record for sale itself (including the sleeves). You can also download these images in large size from the following locations:



If you would like to hear a recording of both sides of this single, you can do so by downloading them from the following locations:



I can confirm that these audio files are genuine captures of the exact 45 rpm disc on sale here.

It was played on my Technics SL-DD33 with a brand new stylus and captured using Roxio software. Absolutely no attempt at audio correction has been made (i.e. de-noising / fading out etc). I have also included both the run in and run out 'crackle' (surface noise) so that you can hear it exactly as it would sound on your own audio system, which will help you if choosing to purchase this item.

You can also view a short film showing the record itself in more detail, including the angling of it towards the light (though it is very difficult to see the actual playing surface on the recording) and also showing it in motion on the record deck.

If you would like to download all of the above referenced files in one go, I have placed them all into a 'zip' file, which can be downloaded here:



Some PC's / Anti-Virus software will display "this link is not safe" notices when you visit Mediafire. I can state that I have personally never had any issues with using them to upload / download from. If you would rather not take that chance, please message me and I can maybe forward the files to you via Outlook Drop Box / return of e-mail.
