VELVET UNDERGROUND The Velvet Underground & Nico (Very rare and essential 1967 US West Coast press blue & silver Verve label 11-track stereo LP, housed in the legendary Andy Warhol pasted gatefold sleeve with unpeeled banana sticker & no torsoimage on theback [airbrushed]. The label is a large ‘t’ blue & silver Verve design with the catalogue number and ‘Side ‘A’ & ‘B’ to the lower left [West Coast design] & hand scratched matrices in the run-offs. The iconic sleeve grades ‘VG-‘,there is some edge scuffing, fading to the reverse panel and a small split to the inner gatefold, the banana also shows some wear and has been re-stuck in a couple of sections – that’s the bad news! The sleeve holds together well and, most importantly, still retains its iconic look. The vinyl grades Good. There are multiple hairlines, scuff marks & the odd scratch with some clicks/backround noise in some of the quiter sections, the louder sections [of which there are many – it’s the Velvets!] sound really good. This is obviously a well loved copy of an album that rightfully holds legendary status in rock history. By no means mint, a ‘banana’ Velvet Underground LP is a prize collectable in any condition & should not be missing in any collection. Highly Recommended V6-5008).

PINK FLOYD The Dark Side Of The Moon (Rare 1973 UK 10-track Quadraphonic LP with A2/B1 matrices, fully compatible with conventional stereo systems & complete with two large fold out full colour posters & two stickers, housed in the iconic gatefold picture sleeve with Quad logo bottom right & title sticker affixed to the front of the sleeve and ‘Quadraphonic Sound’ company inner. The sleeve displays shows some light edge scuffing and ringwear, both posters & stickers remain unused and have been stored inside thesleeve from new. The vinyl remains nice & clean & somewhere between Excellent and Near Mint Q4SHVL804).
