I’M SELLING MY ENTIRE
COLLECTION OF WELL OVER 1000 LPs – I HAVEN’T PLAYED MOST OF THEM FOR MANY YEARS
AND THAT’S A CLEAR INDICATION THAT PRIORITIES HAVE CHANGED ..THERE ARE MANY
COLLECTIBLE GEMS HERE ON MAJOR LABELS (ATLANTIC,BLUE HORIZON,COLUMBIA,DAWN,DECCA,DERAM,VERTIGO,MARMALADE,
ISLAND ETC.) – YOU NAME IT IT’S ALL
HERE….ONCE THEY ARE GONE THEY ARE GONE,THAT’S IT ..99% OF MY COLLECTION IS IN
OUTSTANDING CONDITION,BOUGHT MANY OF THEM NEW OR VERY NEAR NEW, MANY OF THEM ARE
ALSO UNPLAYED NEW – GOOD LUCK TO ALL..
Arcadium: Breathe awhile MIDDLE EARTH MDLS 312 UK
Original first pressing in beautiful
condition...comes from the first and only owner who bought it new, CAREFULLY
played it VERY FEW times and stored it away in a plastic sleeve with the record
outside the sleeve…just to give you an idea about the condition : the inner
sleeve is MINT…COMMONLY ADVERTISED BY SOME SELLERS AS „IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND” (??)
– HERE IT IS…good luck finding one of these with a MINT cover and such a beautifully preserved
fully-laminated cover superb clean
MINT,as NEW condition….backside is as WHITE
as it can be WITHOUT even the SLIGHTEST signs of use at all…opening edges are
PERFECT…nice,clean and sharp,no signs of use at all.... superb clean and near perfect
spine with all the text clearly visible .....no rips,tears,splits or any other
record,visual: superb clean jet-black and
and EX++ with few VERY LIGHT and absolutely
harmless hairlines caused by the inner sleeve ….it still retains it’s
beautiful original sheen and it looks VERY NEAR NEW !!!
record,audio: RECORD PLAYS GREAT ALL THE WAY WITH
CRYSTAL CLEAR AND VIBRANT SOUND WITHOUT ANY SINGS OF GROOVEWEAR,WITH
GREAT DELIVERY AND STEREO IMAGE… NO LOUD POPS/CLICKS AT ALL…please note that as is common with all pressings of this album there is
slight sound deterioration at the beginning of side 1 probably due to the
master plate not being cleaned properly-this also gives rise to an occasional
pop elsewhere. This is a minor pressing fault common to all the few copies in
existence, as far as I know.
Otherwise the sound on this album is
labels: AS CLEAN AS IT COULD BE without ANY
spindle hole marks … MDLS 302 A2 and MDLS 302 B2 matrix numbers,very first
pressing..no tears,stamps or any other damages...
