rare New Zealand progressive hard rock album by Ticket, hugely and rightly
sought after along with Spacefarm, Taylor, Serenity, Mantis etc – this is the
first, original, Down Under New Zealand pressing in the classic ‘flipback’
laminated sleeve. This is truly one of the hardest rock albums from Australia
or NZ from this period, and in keeping with NZ being just that bit more hidden
at times which allowed for some truly unique music to come from their shores
during this time. This sold in tiny quantities at the time – it is the perfect
mix of being rare in numbers, and rare in quality – a must for progressive rock
fans the world over. It has several bases covered, prog, hard-rock, acid-rock
and psych flourishes at times, if ever a cover was representative of what’s
inside, then the stunning artwork does the trick here – this album is the real
deal, a huge beast! – its progressive in the best sense, taking the best of the
era and pushing it further, this is an important rock document that was meant
to blow your mind….PLUS(!) Ive added Tully’s progressive pastoral masterpiece
Sea of Joy, it sits nicely beside Ticket in terms of genre pushing,
underground, antipodean progressive sounds, different of course, but both have
that unique, isolated sound that came from these records at that time, really
special. PLUS PLUS(!!) I’ve thrown in an incredible, essential, original first
press set from the Festival vaults, near impossible to own all the originals

original NZ first press:
~ EX+ ~ in top shape, front graphics shine, glossy laminate
in tact, tight corners and seams display only the most minimal wear, some very
mild ring wear also evident, a very small stain on front will likely come off
~ VG+ ~ nice gloss
and sheen still evident but has been played, displays hairlines and other fine
scratches, as well as several more notable, but these are all ‘soft’, entirely
superficial and don’t tick or jump at all, there is mild static in the softer
passages but nothing that interferes with the music at all ~ a very rare record
at a good price!
Tully, original first Australian pressing
Cover ~ VG+ ~ embossed sleeve
has mild age wear, mild pressing smudges/press wear, overall very nice
Vinyl ~ VG+ ~ has a nice glossy
sheen overall, but has several ‘soft’ scratches that don’t sound and are
entirely superficial, cosmetic only, from start to finish sound is great and
near faultless, this was my loved copy until a recent upgrade
So You Wanna be a Rock n Roll Star, original first press:
Cover ~ NM ~ like new!!!
Vinyl ~ (x2) ~NM/NM ~ looks unplayed
– stunning condition, won’t find better!!!
hassle free returns and money back, if you are unhappy in any way please email
me, I’m an avid collector I try my best to list accurately, play graded and
graded under strong light, please leave feedback after, cheers!
MINT: The record itself is in brand new condition with
no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. The cover and any extra
items such as the lyric sheet, booklet or poster are in perfect condition.
Records advertised as Sealed or Unplayed should be Mint.
NM: Played a
handful of times, several of the faintest hairlines only, perfect sound, full
gloss and sheen, cover near new in every way.
record shows some signs of having been played, tiniest dusting of superficial
hairlines only, playback near perfect. The cover and packaging might have very
slight wear/most minor cosmetic wear only.
VERY GOOD+: Perfectly acceptable, plays with no skips or jumps, no feelable marks.
Hairlines, and other superficial scratches may be evident on the vinyl but
sound quality and fidelity still excellent, may have the odd pop and crackle
only. Cover will have normal wear, seams and corners in tact, some age
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, some may be feelable but will not sound in repeat-tic manner. Normal wear
and tear on the cover or extra items, without any major defects, is acceptable,
may have minor seam or other tears but still acceptable integrity.
GOOD:The record has been played so much that the sound
quality has noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and feelable
scratches that may tic or jump. The cover and contents suffer from folding,
scuffing of edges, spine splits, discolouration, etc.
FAIR:The record is still just playable but has not been
cared for properly and displays considerable surface noise, jump etc. The cover
and contents will be torn, stained and / or defaced. Collector piece only.
