We’ve highlighted three of our latest premium arrivals below, and you can find the rest of our wonderful titles over at eil.com.
SMALL FACES Small Faces (Archive Quality 1966 UK first press 12-track deep groove mono LP on the red ‘unboxed’ Decca logo label, a classic British 60s debut longplayer, including What’Cha Gonna Do About It, Sha La La La Lee & You Need Loving,later re-worked by Led Zeppelin for Whole Lot Of Love, front laminated non-flipback picture sleeve. This is easily the best example we have found in recent years. The laminate is beautifully clean & the back panel is free of writing & heavy discolouring. Edge wear is to a minimum & there is just a little faint ring wear that naturally comes with age, especially for a record of this kind. The heavyweight vinyl has a stunning shine both sides & grades Near Mint along with the labels. On close inspection, the vinyl has perhaps only ever been played maybe twice in its lifetime. Recommended LK4790).
JIMI HENDRIX Band Of Gypsys (Rare 1970 first UK issue 6-track stereo vinyl LP on the black & silver Track label, housed in the withdrawn matt ‘puppet’ sleeve with pinched spine. The earliest copies of Band of Gypsys depicted puppets of Hendrix, Brian Jones, Bob Dylan & English DJ John Peel, found here. Reportedly Peel complained & the cover was withdrawn & replaced with a live photo of Hendrix! See ‘More Info’ for condition details…).
PINK FLOYD Wish You Were Here (Rare 1975 UK first issue 5-track vinyl LP with ‘EMI Records Ltd’ perimeter text on the labels & ‘Waters-Gilmour-Wright’ label credit for Part 5, indicating a first press. Comes complete with the heavy card lyric inner with cropped corners [later issues had rounded corners], glossy postcard with pinked edges & picture sleeve, still in the original opened black shrinkwrap with custom circular sticker attached on the front SHVL814)
