Another from my personal collection. This being released in 1971 over 47 years ago! First UK pressing. This album was originally only ever played perhapesa handful of times and to to record to tape and then stored in a case with the vinyl separated from the sleeve and cover for protection. This is how I have always stored my records.
This is an early 1st UK variation so rare to find this mega earliest variation ‘Machine Stamped ‘ -A#1, -B#2 matrix endings variation There is barely a handfull of visable spider traces around the spindle hole just about seen on side 2. The audio is so rich and vibrant it nearly shook the house down. One of the most vibrant sounding copies that I have ever heard! (Note: Alowances must be made for these early seventies Track Records pressings isolated static type ticks, pops and crackle are common. This is complete with the original Headhunters sleeve which does have wear and tear with age in the form of a staining noted. I would grade the cover at least better than excellent to excellent plus exceptional condition lovely clean 1st UK issue see photos! An Archive copy! Read below for a full description!
Who’s Next is the fifth studio album by English rock band the Who.
It developed from the aborted Lifehouse project, a multi-media rock opera written by the group’s Pete Townshend as a follow-up to the band’s 1969 album Tommy.
On initial inspection this looks awesome, only in strong light or under a lamp could possibly any surface marks be possibly be seen, mainly sleeve removal marks (non audio sounding) The audio is awesome on all frequenies! Cristal clear and vibrant with (no) signs of distiortion or that this has been over played at all. Importantly there are marks that would cause any loud constant clicks or pops and certainly (no) skips or jumps This vinyl has barely ever been played no more than a handful of times ever!
The Audio quality
Point to note! I have played these vinyls prior to listing at very loud volume on a top system! I have owned this album from new and this has only ever been played a handful of times ever!
Please note! This has been stored in a case for most of its storage life and has been laying dormant! From my experiance this would benefit from a constant clean before each play! ,,, Build up of dirt and dust over a period causes static crackle\ticks! onstant cleaning greatly reduces this and greatly improves the audio quality!
