FREE Fire And Water. Extremely rare 1970 UK 7-track first issue stereo white label vinyl LP test pressing with A1/B1 matrices, contains the original recording prior to them going back to the studio to re-record pieces and overdub new vocals, the A side label has hand annotated artist name & catalogue number, within a plain die-cut sleeve. The vinyl is strictly Fair to Good, with lots of surface marks & scratches. We have professionally cleaned & play tested, and can confirm it still plays on our turntable but the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated. Although this is far from mint, it is still a rare item to find in any condition and offered here at an advantageous price.

When it comes to rare records, we don’t think they come much rarer.

A test pressing for the Mono 14 track self-titled David Bowie vinyl LP, with blue & black ‘Factory Sample’ printed deep groove labels with hand annotated text. Released on 1st June 1967 for Deram Records, the same week as The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Not much to see I know, but boy do we have something rare.

THIN LIZZY Black Rose. Extremely Rare Test Pressing for the classic 1979 UK 9-track LP on Vertigo, one of Lizzy’s greatest & most successful albums, obtained from an ex-industry bod who stored the disc for reference never to see the light again until now. The label is plain white & unannotated one side [the second side has no label] & the run-outs are machine stamped ‘9102032 1//1 E U1/ 9102032 2//1 E U1’ with correct first press etchings reading ‘A la palace/ Un Rendez-Vous’. The vinyl has been professionally cleaned & grades VG+ with a deep sheen both sides & just the odd light hairline visible, which has little effect on play. An incredible find.
