ROLLING STONES Wild Horses (1971 original Japanese ‘RSR’ yellow label 7″ single made by Warner Bros-Pioneer Corporation, b/w Sway. This example has the withdrawn ‘Gimme Shelter’ live-on-stage picture sleeve, generally regarded to be therarest of all the Japanese picture inserts. In addition this copy comes complete with its regular ‘two horses’ picture sleeve, a correct Atlantic Records die-cut company inner, and a simply MINT condition record. Unrepeatable!).
DEEP PURPLE & THE ROYAL PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA Concerto For Group And Orchestra (Extremely rare 1970 original Japanese blue label promo sample black vinyl LP pressed by Warner-Pioneer, heavyweight gatefold picture sleeve complete with insert & the unbelievably rare ‘Rock Age’ shaped obi-strip. The sleeve shows only light wear for being over forty five years old, the insert shows little signs of age. The labels have just a couple of light spindle marks whilst the vinyl show verylittle evidence of play. The all important obi remains in a fantastic condition and intact with very little wear or signs of age, one of the best we have seen.
