Background on this item -
This is the earliest version of this vintage UK EMI LP (UK made, in Great Britain). This title features the esteemed conductor, Georges Pretre with the Orchestre du Theatre National de L'Opera, playing highlights from Massenet's - Herodiade....in STEREO!!

This record was pressed during the golden age of stereo (early 1960's). Wonderful performance of this work - one of the most sought after by both music lovers and audiophiles alike. You would be hard pressed to find a better UK made pressing as this record is very clean and in amazing condition given it's age.

1. Highlights from Herodiade

The JACKET is in NEAR Mint Minus condition. The jacket is completely intact, with no seam splits. The jacket does show just some very mild shelf wear - primarily the corners and seams. See picture with this listing for more detail.

The LP (vinyl) itself:
The LP is in Near Mint Minus condition! The vinyl has no serious marks of any kind, only some very light superficial spider marks - these are caused by sliding the LP in and out of the inner sleeve. The record retains much of it's original glossy sheen. It is a lovely slab of super rare vinyl - in remarkable condition given the age of the record. When play graded on our audio system, the record performed very well, with only some light noise sporadically that did not detract from the performance in any way.

Please understand that this is a vintage LP record - as such, one cannot expect the vinyl to sound like a brand new, audiophile pressing! Some noise is inevitable - for best results, always properly clean your LPs before playing them.

The LP is an audiophile quality pressing (any collector of fine MFSL, half speeds, direct to discs, Japanese/UK pressings etc., can attest to the difference a quality pressing can make to an audio system).

A Short Note About LP GRADING -
Mint {M} = Only used for sealed items.
Near Mint {NM} = Virtually flawless in every way.
Near Mint Minus {NM-} = Item has some minor imperfections, some audible.
Excellent {EXC} = Item obviously played and enjoyed with some noise.
Very Good Plus {VG+} = Many more imperfections which are noticeable and obtrusive.

Don't let this rarity slip by!!!
