1972 UK first press large 'Mad Hatter' Charisma label 6-track LP with A1U/B1U matrices along with 'Porky' & 'Peko' text in the runoff area & 'B&C Records' perimeter text on the label, textured gatefold picture sleeve with B&C marketing address at the bottom on the inside left panel and E.J. Day credit to the bottom right, comes with the original red advertising inner sleeve. The Sleeve is strictly graded EX/EX+, with only minor shelfwear. The vinyl remains a beautiful EX-/EX with just a couple of light surface markswhich do not affect play. A very respectable copy of this 40 year old pressing.
Rare 1971 UK 'swirl' Vertigo label 8-track LP with 1Y1/2Y1 matrices and unusual reversed white on black label. Features the classics Sweet Leaf, Children Of The Grave and Into The Void, and comes housed in the first issue laminated & embossed 'boxed' sleeve, with lyrics on reverse and original 'swirl' inner. We tend to find these covers in less than desirable condition, however this example remains in superb condition and strictly graded EX-/EX, with some minor shelfwear and the usual laminate lift. The inner has only a few signs of age yellowing otherwise superb without any tears. The vinyl remains a beautiful EX-/EX as shows some signs of being played, however there is very little lessening on the sound quality, we did play test the whole album and it does plays a strong EX+. A very respectable copy of this classic 40 year old album, at an advantageous price.
Rare 1970 UK first pressing 8-track LP on the Vertigo large 'swirl' label, housed in a front laminated gatefold sleeve complete with poly-lined swirl inner. The front cover has a tiny small mark in the laminatejust below the Vertigo logo but is otherwise in superb condition with crisp, tight laminate, barely any signs of edge wear & a nice clean, unblemished print inside. The labels are clean with no spindle marks & the vinyl looks barely played with just one or two faint scuffs visible on side A which do not affect play. A wonderful copy!
