Sound Quality

Excellent+ / Near Mint

Fantastic example of The Beatles debut album. Such a pleasure to listen to. The audio is outstanding with its only defect being some faint background noise in some of the quieter sections. The sound itself is rich, clear and precise. Truly an exceptional copy of this rarely seen variation; it's ridiculously hard to find a copy of this variation in this condition.

Aesthetic Condition

We have provided multiple high resolution images which capture every aspect of the sleeve, liner and labels. This allows you, the bidder, to make your own judgement regarding the aesthetic condition of each component because grading it  is such a highly subjective matter. 

When coupled with the zoom feature, our high quality pictures display fine details of the item itself. This allows one to see precisely what is being auctioned.

Please check our recent feedback to see how satisfied our customers were with their purchases.

Cleaning Process

Vpi 2 photo df32e9b0-b9ea-41fc-be95-ceb8e21a1ac2_zpsee91e0b7.png

The vinyl itself has been cleaned using a four step process, including an active enzyme solution, ultra pure water and two high resolution rinses, which optimizes the audio quality. The cleaning process is done on a 'VPI 16.5' record cleaning machine. After the cleaning process the improvement with regards to the audio quality is astonishing.

The record is then put into an anti-static rice paper inner liner to ensure that no dust or dirt can reach the vinyl (the original liner is kept and sent within the packaging). The cover, original liner and the record itself are all packaged within a clear plastic outer casing.

Packaging & Postage

The item is posted in a record mailer and is packaged with stiffeners either side to eliminate the chance of damage. 

We aim to send the item within two working days. 

International shipping is welcomed.

For UK buyers we send via Royal Mail 1st class signed for with insurance at £4.10 for albums under £100. For albums in excess of £100, we send via 1st class next day delivery before 1pm with full insurance at £6.10. If you purchase more than one album from us, we can combine shipping costs.

Rest of world we send via international signed for fully insured. The cost of this is more variable than for UK buyers, this is due to airmail shipping costs being directly proportional to weight. However, it comes between £9 to £14.95 in most cases. In this case, given the price of the item, the postage fee may well exceed £14.95. I will get a quote before invoicing. If you purchase more than one album from us, we can combine shipping costs.
