The Rolling Stones
Their Satanic Majesties Request
RARER TRUE 1st PRESS MONO
1P/P1 end matricies & 3 bells.
(FRAME THIS BABY)
Released back in 1967, this album was re-pressed many times in different formats for both the record and the cover....NOW here is an all singing, all dancing original 1967 press.
Issued on the 8th of December...HAPPY CHRISTMAS, with Satanic Majesties!
Catalogue number: TXL 103
Side 1: ARL-6126-1P
Side 2: ARL-6127-P1
(These end matricies initially went un-noticed at the very first pressing of this album and were then quickly changed when spotted...Giving the much more common 'T2' (standing for Take 2) prefix of the second pressing inbetween the catalogue number and the end matrix number.
SO THESE PRESSINGS ARE THE TRUE FIRST AND NOT MANY OF THEM COME UP FOR SALE.
Side 1: 2B/U
Side 2: 1/I
LOVEY AND EARLY
After giving her a clean with my vacuum record cleaner, I popped her on my deck and played her all the way through. Unfortunately she played with quite a bit of background noise as well as skips and sticks throughout both sides. There are sections where she plays very well-more so on side 2, but then a little skip or stick will occur-which is why I have given her a P+ grading.
So the best thing for this album would be as either a good filler or one to be popped into a frame and displayed proudly on your wall as it is the increasingly rare very 1st pressing of this iconic album.
Glorious sheen and weight to the vinyl.
3 bell tolls at the start of track 2, side 2...Showing this to be the very 1st mix.
The label does look rather nice :) There is some central hole wear-as can be seen in the detailed images provided. But NO WRITING. So this baby would frame very well indeed.
It is the VERY 1st label design too...Indicated by the following:
No Copyright box.
Publisher credit to the left.
"Sing This All Together (See What Happens), track 5 title is all on one line.
NO tax code.
Glorious BLUE MONO.
Rare in itself!
Original "Version 1" 1967 sleeve, with the "MONO TXL 103" printed to the bottom right on the back of the gatefold and without a hole to indicate Mono or Stereo copies to the back top right.
DEEP BLUE AND NOT THE LATER TURQUOISE.
She is a bit tatty, but would display very well indeed.
The 3D image to the front has Jagger's hat going to his left-the correct way and not the later repro's.
Vibrant colours remain.
Good strong thick card.
The spine has been worn through and the corners have rubbing and knocking...Again, please see the detailed images for yourselves.
The inside is as bright as the day she was born.
It is a period, white die-cut inner with two windows, in great shape.
It also carries the rarer "PATENT APPLIED FOR" text to one side, as well as "Made In England."
ALL IN ALL SHE IS A TRUE 1st PRESSING COLLECTORS PIECE IN WORN CONDITION BUT WOULD STILL SIT PROUD IN ANYONES COLLECTION-OR ON SOMEONES WALL-WHEN CORRECTLY FRAMED YOU'D STILL BE ABLE TO GET THE MOST OUT OF THE 3D COVER BY MOVING YOUR HEAD TO MAKE JAGGERS HAT MOVE....;)
