This week’s choice from our resident vinyl guru ‘Mr A’ is this rather wonderful autographed Cliff Richard & The Shadows Vinyl LP
Normally at this point I would be trying to explain exactly what scars of war this LP has collected over the last forty five years or so, but in this case, I won’t.
You know that lovely sheen that laminated sleeves have when they are fresh from the shops ? This has it.
Shelfwear is practically non-existent. The outside remains white and more importantly so does the inner gatefold.
The inner gatefold has all the signatures nicely laid out, either on or close to their respective portraits. The signatures are large & bold and obviously written in an unhurried manner. Cliff has even added the message ‘Good To Be With You’ by his signature.
It is clear that the sleeve has been well looked after in a smoke free environment and is pristine.
The vinyl too is astonishing with almost no signe of play at all, no spindlemarks and no scuffs or hairlines.
I do not recall ever seeing a copy of this album in better condition and this copy is a Sample & fully autographed to boot !
