Thursday’s Top Three including Jimi Hendrix, Cream & Metallica

407966JIMI HENDRIX Smash Hits Rare original 1969 Japanese  Nippon Grammophon pressed 12-track stereo vinyl  compilation LP, housed in a unique pasted picture sleeve in  the classic Experience 'fish eye lens' style by Karl Ferris with  the lyrics to seven songs on the reverse, COMPLETE  with English lyric insert with the remaining lyrics & the  impossibly rare original obi-strip! SMP-1413

606560CREAM Disraeli Gears Late 60s Rhodesian 11-track mono  vinyl LP, pressed by Mackays using UK Reaction 593003 plates  on to heavyweight vinyl, front laminated pinched spine  picture sleeve. The sleeve clearly has the 'MACKAYS' stamp in  pink on the back, but otherwise is a clone of the second issue  Reaction sleeve from the UK, even to the extent of still having  'Reaction' in the bottom right corner. Another anomaly with  this edition is that the labels are clearly marked 'Stereo',  eventhough the album is actually the mono version. The  sleeve shows little in the way of shelfwear with just some  light creasing to the laminate in places. The vinyl shows just a  couple of light surface scuffs which have no effect on play. In  fact, upon playtesting, this album displays all the beefy  goodness of an original Reaction press, with background noise  at a minimum. An amazing copy of this hard to find issue in  beautiful mono LPHM84710

540768METALLICA Flaming Skull Hockey Shirt Rare original vintage 1997  US extra large sized black, grey and white polyester hockey shirt in  the LA Kings Raiders colours, featuring a superb full colour  embroidered flaming skull image across the front by Pushead along  with a ninja star embroidered on the right shoulder, the back has  Metallica and 97 text. This was sold at shows throughout the US during  tour to support the 'Load/ReLoad' albums, additionally it was available  for a short time through their fan club. This has been worn but shows  little signs of wear or age and has no snags, tears or holes and is still  in a fantastic condition. This is only the second example of this now  rare and very sought after jersey we have ever had the pleasure to  offer, must have for any fan
