The Doors – Super Deluxe: Rare 1973 Japanese-only 14-track LP on the blue Elektra ‘guitar man’ label, housed in a deluxe & unique gold embossed gatefold picture sleeve with integral picture/ lyric booklet & the original gold ‘star’ obi-strip. The packaging is Excellent with some minor edge wear from storage, remaining very much a fantastic example indeed. The vinyl is Excellent with a deep sheen both sides & merely the odd faint spindle mark on the label to show play. Recommended £195
The Beatles – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band: Rare 1967 UK first pressing 13-track stereo LP on the black & yellow Parlophone label with ‘The Gramophone Co Ltd’ & ‘Sold In The UK’ label credit, complete with the original red & white ‘flame’ inner & intact sheet of cut-outs, fully laminated internal flipback gatefold sleeve. A wonderful EX+ copy £195
Jimi Hendrix – Electric Ladyland: Rare 1971 UK second issue of the classic 1968 16-track double vinyl LP, housed in a fully laminated Ernest J. Day gatefold sleeve with smaller images inside of Mitch & Noel & no additional upside down catalogue numbers on the labels. The sleeve has very little indication of age, with the colours still vibrant & sharp and just a light laminate crease to the reverse. The vinyl shows very little sign of play, with all four labels sharing very scant sign of spindle wear. There is a small scuff on Rainy Day which causes a small passage of crackle with a few clicks and no skips or jumps. Basically a fantastic copy, stymied only by a small section of wear; a very respectable copy of an alltime classic & at the fraction of the cost of a mint one! £195
