Seller’s Comments: “Up for bid is possibly one of the rarest records in existence!!!!! The US debut of a little band known as the Rolling Stones!! This is the hyper-rare commercial issue of their first US single; very few are known to exist. This is NOT a promo. This is the real deal! Purple and white labels. VG grade vinyl has some present surface marks, but plays through beautifully. Non-obtrusive light tick on the “Stoned” side on and off until “out of my mind” lyric. Loud mastering on this one! Some writing on “I Wanna Be Your Man” label, visible in pictures. All I can say is BID BID BID on this once in a lifetime opportunity!! Matrix (A): DR-31954  12  Bell Sound sf. Matrix (B): DR-31955  12  Bell Sound sf.”

Seller’s Comments: “This copy is in fantastic condition and is housed in its original company sleeve. Has the all important serrated edge and matrix A2/B1 with 7284 scratched twice on Side 2. Condition of the record is remarkable with side one just having the slightest of very minor paper scuffs from being taken out of inner sleeve. Played once and it sounds fantastic. Everybody knows what this record is and what it is worth so I am starting it with a 99p start price and let’s see where it goes (makes me slightly nervous!) – enjoy the bidding!!
A lot of people have been asking about the history of this record. The record was consigned to Omega Auctions Punk auction in March but failed to meet its reserve so did not sell. It was consigned by somebody that used to work at the pressing plant in Aylesbury during the 70’s. Omega auctions have sold 3 of these in the past 3 years (including another from an ex-employee which sold for £9500) and this will come with a letter of authenticity from them.”
