Idders outside the UK: Please note that I send ALL international items tracked and insured , which. THERE ARE 12 PHOTOS IN THIS LISTING. USE THE SCROLL BAR BESIDE THE THUMBNAILS TO SEE THEM ALL. UK STEREO first pressing in a superb numbered top-opening cover, complete with the original 1st press photos and poster.
The four sides all play-grade as either Excellent or very close to it. This has the following 1st press matrix numbers. Side 1: YEX 709 - 1.Side 2: YEX 710 - 1. Side 3: YEX 711 - 1. Side 4: YEX 712 - 1. Vinyl: The vinyl has retained its original sheen with hairlines, sleeve-removal lines and fine surface marks visible. There are relatively few on disc one, but more on disc two. I have played the entire double album and it sounds great with very little to report.
It can be really hard to find an original copy of the White Album that plays well from start to finish (four sides and over 90 minutes of music), but this one is well-above average and it was a real pleasure to listen to. This is a great, playable example which was a pleasure to listen to. Labels: The labels have no writing, stickers, tears etc, just spindle marking. Sleeve: The numbered, top-opening, laminated sleeve is in great condition, with only light signs of age and wear. There is some corner wear, mild discolouration and some laminate flaking to the spine as is fairly typical for these covers, but overall this is a very presentable example.The spine and seams are all UNSPLIT and the spine text is all legible. Inner sleeves, poster and photos: The four photos and poster are the original, genuine 1968 first issues.
The poster has some splits/tears to a couple of the folds (but is fully intact and in one piece) and the photos each have the name of the relevant Beatle written neatly on the rear, but there are no other significant issues. The inner sleeves are genuine White Album inner sleeves i. Not reproductions, but they are not original 1968 issues.
They come from a more-recent release. They have no significant issues.
Detracting features not covered above: None. This is a really nice example with excellent audio.Information about descriptions and gradings. My items are always described accurately and fairly. I always do my best to point out any blemishes which might detract from the item and all photographs are of the actual item you will get. Where gradings are given these are based on. The UK RECORD COLLECTOR GRADING SYSTEM. This grading system differs from some other grading systems, in particular the Goldmine grading system. Visually-graded vinyl vs play-graded vinyl. Many people collect vinyl and never play it, whereas other people collect records because they want to play them.
A visual grading will identify physical flaws (such as scratches) and can help determine whether a record has been cared-for properly, but it will not identify noise or crackle caused by non-visible sources. Most vintage records are likely to have some background noise even if they look perfect. I believe that records are for playing and so I try to play-grade records whenever possible.I always state in the listing if I have played a record prior to listing it. If I have play-graded the record I will usually only give a brief description of how the record looks i.
The grading in the listing will be a play-grading and may be slightly different from the grading that the record would receive from a purely visual inspection. Most vintage records are not 100% perfectly flat and so I will only mention this aspect if it is very significant or has an impact on the way the record sounds. If I haven't play-graded the record, it will be given a visual grading. Mono records and stereo records have different grooves.
A stereo record produces a stereo sound via both lateral and vertical groove modulation whereas a mono record is not intended to produce any sound from vertical modulation. Playing a mono record with a stereo cartridge will create distortion because it is trying to pick-up the vertical (stereo) part of the signal, whereas this is not intended to be heard on a mono record and so is just noise. Using a pre-amp with a mono switch will eliminate the noise caused by vertical modulation leaving just the lateral groove signal which is how the record was intended to be heard. Based on the assumption that most people choosing to listen to a mono record will have the right equipment to listen to it, I play all mono records via a pre-amp with a mono switch.My play-grading is based on how the record sounds when played through a mono switch. If you do not have a mono switch on your amp or pre-amp you will be reproducing the noise from the vertical part of the signal and so the record will not sound as good. This is not any fault of the record, it is inherent to playing any mono record through a system that it was not designed for. I have some very simple terms and conditions. My items are fully guaranteed. If it is not as described. I care about the records I sell and believe that they need to be carefully and securely packaged to ensure that they survive their journey through the post. Vinyl is removed from the sleeve for posting and the contents will be protected with rigid cardboard stiffeners.
Packages are labelled "Do not bend" and securely sealed with "FRAGILE" parcel tape. I support the use of recycled materials and so I may sometimes use recycled packaging.
If you wish your item to be sent in entirely new packaging please let me know before paying for it. My P&P charges are'totally transparent'. Sending items costs more than just the stamps on the package. But I try not to charge more for packing and posting your item than it actually costs me to do so.
To cover some of these expenses. I add a nominal figure to the basic cost charged at the post office athough the actual cost to me is always higher than this. To quote an exact cost for every LP is difficult because of the wide variance in weight e. Abbey Road weighs around 230 grams whereas Led Zeppelin III weighs around 390 grams. But the majority of single LPs, when packed, will weigh around 550 grams and I have based my P&P rates on this.Double LPs will be charged as two LPs, triple LPs will be charged as three LPs. Box sets etc will be charged according to weight. I offer three UK services.
