Jimi Hendrix Electric Ladyland - Transitional 1st Pressing - EX UK 2-LP vinyl record set (Double Album)
|Tracklisting / Additional Info:
This is a rare transition pressing in which the original Track vinyl was issued inside a slightly modified picture sleeve variant, used for this and all later releases.
The first issue Track labels have a slightly different 'rough' texture to the paper, but the main difference on the labels is the catalogue numbers. On the left side of the centre hole, the catalogue number is repeated in brackets above the bold silver print in smaller inverted numbers. These end with a capital 'A' or 'B' per side, on both records' labels. This is ONLY found on the first pressing.
The gatefold cover has deep colour tones on the naked ladies with an almost green tinge to the flesh colours, often found on the spine as well. This is the same as the very first sleeve.
Inside the gatefold, the Track logo, tracklisting, copyright information and 'Ernest J Day' address are all in white, as found on the second issue sleeve!
Above the titles are two pictures of Mitch & Noel. In a very first issue cover they are large sized photos, but all later issues have the modified cover with them reduced to a smaller size. The inside of this sleeve, unlike the outside, follows this design pattern. This too was the format for later Polydor label issues.
The black labels are clean with sharp silver print and only faint spindle marks visible in the light.
The vinyl on this copy shows the odd light hairline with minimal impact to playback due to the high grade heavyweight vinyl used in the '60s with deep grooves. Despite being 40 years old it retains its shine.
The matrix numbers are:
Side A - 613008A//1
Side B - 613009A//1
Side C - 613009B//1
Side D - 613008B//1
These are machine stamped in the 'dead wax' areas with hand scratched amendments - there appeared to be slight confusion at the pressing plant as the sides were configured in the American style, i.e. Sides A and D are on the first disc, Sides B and C on the second.
The laminated gatefold picture sleeve shows just a little general shelfwear, with a few light creases in the laminate & edgewear to a minimum, meeting the Excellent grading with ease.
A much sought after edition of this classic album in very respectable condition!
