Collector’s Item Rare Early Pressing Vinyl LP, Tubular Bells by Mike O - $275 (Calgary)

123

condition: good
media type: vinyl

Completely authentic collector’s item. This is a very rare early pressing of Tubular Bells the first album released by Virgin Records and widely accredited with launching the Virgin business empire. Subsequent pressings have a coloured centre disc. The initial pressings just have black and white centre disc artwork. I purchased the LP in 1973 or 1974 when I lived in England. Of course it was played regularly but as soon as it became available on CD the vinyl album was retired. The album cover and sleeve are also original. Side 1 of the album is in excellent condition. Side 2 has a small nick in it. The LP carries the date 1973 and version V2001. This version number is confirmed etched into the vinyl, side 1: V-2001-A-2U (very faint on closeup photo) and V-2001-B-3U on side 2.
