It's coming, there's no stopping it and no denying it'll use up all that money you have to treat yourself. Now is the time to acquire those hard-to-find collectables before the last day of November when we are officially in the 'season to be jolly'. We have a trio of hand-picked, cream of the collection, grab-them-now-before-it's-too-late gems to tempt you to think of numero uno and forget the giving, let's concetrate on the recieving!
Rare original UK 1963 STEREO vinyl LP on the legendary black & gold Parlophone label. This is the very first pressing with Dick James Music credits for Please Please Me, I Saw Her Standing There, Misery & Do You Want To Know A Secret. Housed in the original Ernest J. Day & Co. laminated flipback picture sleeve with correct far-right aligned Angus McBean photo credit, and complete with original Emitex inner.
Incredibly rare & quite possibly unique 1969 UK plum & red label 9-track stereo LP. The vinyl on this copy remains VG/VG+ at best with several obvious surface marks although it still plays through without fault. That's not, however, why we are here. The inner gatefold of the sleeve is just as you'd expect, with the full colour Zeppelin panorama that you're used to. The outside of the gatefold sleeve is a different story. Unnoticed by quality control, thissleeve managed to pass checking at the time with just the brown print, so NO airmen, NO Atlantic logo, NO 'Led Zeppelin', no nothing. This extraordinary sleeve has managed to survive the years free of writing, apart from the previous owner's initials, or any attempts to draw in the unprinted areas. There is a little light shelfwear, but nothing too extreme, and just a bit of edge scuffing to show for its forty years. An incredible find to have sneaked out & survived as is for this long. A probably unique & amazing completion to any Zeppelin collection.
Rare original 1964 unused UK ticket WITH stub for the Stones' Friday night performance at the Richmond 4th National Jazz Festival on the 7th August, accompanied by an interesting bit of history that is the letter from the original purchaser asking for a refund. This amazing item has stayed like this since it was returned to them over forty years ago and is in pristine condition save for some VERY faint discolouration!
