MIS-PRESSED ROLLING STONES LP

Post by RollingStone96 » Sun May 04, 2014 5:09 pm

Hi there,

I recently brought a copy of The Rolling Stones 'Now' LP from 1965 with no sleeve. The vinyl itself sounds great and there are very little imperfections. The thing I'm writing about is that the record seems to have the B side pressed on to both A ad B sides.

I was wondering if this means that I've picked up a rarity, or whether it was a common thing that occured?

Any responses would be greatly appreciated, it's a lovely record and I'm intrigued about the mis-pressing,

thanks, Luke.

Hi RS96, what color is the label?

By no sleeve do you mean the inner sleeve or the outer cover?

It has a plain inner sleeve but no outer cover.

This LP in great shape goes for about $20. This type of factory error though common may be more desirable to Stones fans as they are highly collectable. You might get $30 for it. But alas you have no cover. I might pay $1 for since I have to go out and spend $20 to find a nice copy just for the cover. Good luck.

Yeah, that was my worry, not bad for 30 pence at a car boot sale though ;)
