This beautiful UK 1st stereo pressing of their 7th studio album dates from initial October 1969 release

It is on the blue and black Pye Records label: NSPL 18317

Matrices: NSPL 18317A-1 *T & NSPL 18317B-1 *T

Stamper codes: R/1 & M/1

Vinyl weight: 160g

Housed in an outer laminated gatefold cover with stereo catalogue prefix sticker on the rear panel.

Complete with original poly-lined inner-sleeve but lacking Queen Victoria insert.



Labels: MINT -

Just two faint spindle trails on each label.

Vinyl Side 1: EXCELLENT +

Vinyl Side 2: MINT

Appears 'as new' in strong daylight. The  only reason this isn't graded the full 'MINT is the presence of a hairline across the first tracks on side 1.

This produces a light tick in the quieter sections of those tracks but does not spoil them. The rest of the album is truly flawless both visually and audibly.


Without doubt the best example of this extremely fragile cover I have seen. There are no creases, tears or damage to the delicate spine hinge. It's only sign of age is a little laminate lift on the rear panel towards the spine (which they all have). You won't find a better example.

Inner-sleeve: EXCELLENT +

Clean & unblemished with just a couple of gentle storage wrinkles.
