Rolling Stones – Beggars Banquet: Impossibly Rare 1969 Japanese promotional-only 10-track stereo vinyl LP, a major Stones rarity that has only just come to light in recent years. The labels are custom black on white with deep grooves & have a unique reversal of the side one & two tracks [the album beginnings with Street Fighting Man]. What’s more, this is an actual Japanese pressing, NOT a UK manufactured export, which is the version that was first released to the Japanese buying public.
George Harrison – All Those Years Ago: Mega rare 1981 Japanese only Dark Horse label one sided promotional-only 7″ Picture Disc. The playing side features a 3½” diameter picture of George as featured on the single and album artwork, surrounded by yellow and black artist/title text around the outside; the non-playing side shows the full-length George picture taken from the back of the ‘Somewhere In England’ album artwork. Due to being stored for many years inside a clear PVC sleeve, the plying surface has some surface ‘mottling’ effect, caused by a reaction with the sleeve. We have cleaned & play tested and can confirm there is just a little lessening in sound quality but plays through without any problems. A really nice example of this impossible to find pressing
The Who – Who’s Next: Rare 1971 Japanese first issue 9-track vinyl LP, manufactured by Polydor K.K. Japan in December 1971, heavyweight gatefold pasted picture sleeve with both English and Japanese lyrics printed inside. Remarkably, this near perfect original even retains its super-rare obi-strip
