Very Rare Actual 1973 Japanese First Pressing Of The Fantastic Fifth LP By King Crimson! Vinyl Still In Really Nice Condition 50 Years Later! Includes Inner Sleeve With Lyrics In English & Insert With Band Photos & Notes In Japanese.
Condition – Vinyl: EXCELLENT! There are some very quiet sections on this album and this is a wonderful pressing. Well looked after since 1973 and still sounds fantastic!
Condition – Cover: VERY GOOD. Small split on bottom edge, foxing and age spots. It is very difficult to keep a white cover white over five decades!
Japanese vinyl pressings are highly sought after by audiophiles and collectors, due to their premium sound quality and beautifully presented packaging. The sonic quality of Japanese records is regarded as the best in the world. No wonder all the original Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab records were pressed in Japan! The covers are printed on better quality heavy stock paper too. Top condition Japanese pressings are becoming scarcer ~ therefore more collectable and valuable every year.
