Elvis Presley Rock 'n' Roll - EX UK vinyl LP album (LP record)
|Tracklisting / Additional Info:
The cover is one of the most iconic designs to ever grace a record sleeve. To find it clean & intact & not far off its original state really does make our day. The silk laminate has peeling around the back opening edge, a natural occurence after sixty years, & this example really has been well looked after. A surviving copy of Elvis' debut album? Yes please, we'll buy one of those any day of the week! But we rarely ever see one... There are no actual seam splits or writing with this example, making for quite a find. There is some age yellowing around the edges noticeable on the back, but nothing that upsets the print, & only a little corner scuffing. The front image is truly majestic, with minimal ring wear & nothing that stands in the way of its appearance. The laminate is tight & clean on the front & the image is unfaded, the colours still strikingly vivid. The black print along the spine is still clear & would stand out on any shelf. As good as it gets in this day & age & worth preserving for eternity!
The matrices in the dead wax are machine stamped:
Side One: 2XAV255-1N
Side Two: 2XAV256-1N
The heavyweight vinyl is nothing short of the highest quality pressing as you'd expect from His Master's Voice, made of real stuff before the oil crisis compromised the quality of vinyl in later years. Coupled with the fact this is one of the most played records of its day, to find a serviceable example of this, Elvis' colossal debut, is a very rare occurence.
We have professionally cleaned the vinyl with a high end Matrix machine & we can confirm playback is exceptional. Any surface noise is barely detectable on a mono setting.There are some spindle marks by the centre hole to indicate play [who didn't play their Elvis record?!] but nothing excessive & there are no blemishes to the label print.
On close inspection, we can see some mild axial signs of play & the odd faint hairline, barely detectable. We would grade this beautiful vinyl example a healthy VG+/EX-.
Outstanding & so difficult to better, Rock N Roll is here to stay!!
