The Who A Quick One/sell Out Superb 1974 Uk Track Double Set, Supreme Sound.:
ONEADAYRECORDS – Simply Delivering Quality Music to the World in Quality, Safe Packing.
Postage: UK £4.75 (£1 per extra record). Europe (including Russia) £12.50 (£2 per extra record). Rest of World (including ALL parts of the USA) £16.50 (£3 per extra record). All boxes signed for in quality, safe packaging – I NEVER use mailing envelopes that offer virtually no protection at all, and records WILL arrive damaged in them at some time as most record buyers will already know. Here, you get what you pay for – SAFE PACKING in BOXES using 7mm DOUBLE-WALL STIFFENERS including full side protection and bubble wrap, the records removed from the covers of course. All this very safe packing means I lose money on every box I post, but safe delivery is, and will always be paramount. You WILL see the difference when my packet arrives. Also, I will pay for insurance on any record that sells for over £100 at NO extra cost – that is UK and abroad. Also I aim to post the very same day after payment is received if possible.
Posting to Russia: Yes, I do post to Russia. But delivery can take up to 4 to 6 weeks from the UK. So please be patient. I will submit a tracking number to the winning buyer, and when the packet arrives there it can be followed online using the Russian post website.
ALSO: I now apply the ‘2-day’ rule for non-payment to keep things moving – cash-flow is important for any small business.
FINALLY: Late payers, non-payers and ‘0’ buyers will now be blocked or cancelled at my discretion. As will any buyer who cancels a offer. I do not like this practice as it is most often used to phish out the price to beat. does not approve and neither do I – so only offer on my items if you want them.

Label Conditions: All four very clean, fresh and attractive with only a tiny few light, fine and faint spindle marks and no wear around the hole area. Both records appear hardly played and offer fantastic clean sound. Another from the one owner collection who usually put his initial ‘P’ on the labels as here. This initial very small, fine and ultra neat. He bought the records, usually stored them in brand new Decca soft-lined inners, and protected the main sleeve in plastic protective covers. Most appear hardly played, then with utmost care.

Brief Info: Put simply, a 1974 double reissue of The Who’s second and third albums with the original mono and stereo mixes. What makes this special is the original artwork is still applied as well as fully laminated outer covers, the inside is matt. Two magnificent Who classics from the era of psychedelia, both discs appear hardly played and sound fantastic. I call that a bargain – the best you ever had?
Cover Grade and Format: EXCELLENT: a gatefold format with laminated outside faces, the inside is matt and smooth. Printed and made in England by E. J. Day Group, includes the soft-lined company inner sleeves.
Lamination – Front & Back: The laminate retains excellent shine and clarity with no lifting and minimal dulling, only gentle rim impression that with two solidly pressed record inside is near impossible to avoid on gatefolds. Most, a couple of fine half moons apart, of any creasing on the edges as fine hairline types. An impressive cover that retains the original artwork, but simply joined together.
Cover Inner Gatefold: Little to fault inside and these graphics were the original cover’s backs.
Top Edges: Both straight and flush with minimal blemishes or wear.
Bottom Edges: These are thicker than the top pair, they are very smooth and have barely any wear.
Right Edge(s), and Type: Clean, mostly sharp with very little wear. Any thickening or burring minimal and light as seen viewed end-on. Records enter on these edges that is guaranteed untrimmed or enhanced.
Spine and Text: Solid, straight with minimal compression and folded square, so the edges meet up very closely together and parallel. All text is nigh-on perfect and unworn under the solid and clear laminate. Any hairlines or scuffs tiny, few and faint.
Corners: Any tip rubs tiny and light, excellent or better shape retained with no knocks.
Cover Summary: A very strong all-round example of this quality and highly attractive 1970’s cover, one that could prove difficult to find much better. This beautiful item should please many collectors.
The Inner Sleeves: NEAR EXCELLENT: simply from natural darkening of the paper, any creasing little and light. Four perfect window circles and the soft-linings that were now used by Phonogram intact and neat.
Vinyl Condition/Visual Grading: NEAR MINT / EXCELLENT(++): a superb visual pair that are very clean with equally fine shine and solidly pressed. These appear hardly played with any surface traces few, very light and faint as seen critically under bright light – A Quick One is little short of immaculate, the other a mere whisker behind. No penetrating stylus scratches, viewed in average room light, barely anything even registers. Visually a superb records that should please most collectors.
Album Played For Grading: Yes. [I play ALL records I offer before submitting to , also the record is played in its entirety unless clearly stated otherwise. I do NOT play snippets or joining grooves to check for sound quality and quietness – I play from the beginning to end via clinically revealing equipment, all listed further down.]
Sound Quality and Audio Grading: These two early Who classics play up to their high visual gradings with hardly anything to fault. Offering strong, distortion-free sound, all frequencies are sharp and clear – sound quality is very high with a wide dynamic range and very detailed sound. Any surface sounds are minimal indeed and this is an exceptional clean pressing with no tracking issues*. Few available copies will outperform this first issue double repressing I feel sure. Both channels are clean and sharp, I am certain these records have been played very lightly and has been generally well stored and very carefully handled. Nothing of any note spoilt my pleasure when play-grading this wonderful records. They will prove very difficult to find significantly better and can be strongly recommended.
* As played-graded on a high-end Linn LP12 Sondek turntable with Ittok Mk II arm and Ortofon Quintet Black moving coil cartridge tracking at 2.2 grams. Records are a ‘contact’ format, and few will avoid the odd minor sound blemish.
Now one of the most established sellers on and still offering the finest and most accurately described and graded records I can find. I pride myself on offering a variety of genres to keep my site as interesting as possible. I will rarely offer any record that falls below a true Excellent grading, unless its of a certain rarity which will justify offering a lesser grade. I try, to the best of my ability to describe as accurately and as honesty as I can all items I offer for sale with all the relevant information I can think of to help any potential buyer and collector. You may notice I only submit records sparingly on as I Play-Grade every record I offer in their entirety – also on higher-end equipment – not just bits to guess a grade – visuals alone do not always tell a true or full story. I will mention any defects or flaws no matter how small that I notice to be fair as possible to any interested collector – I am very fussy and my buyers have the right to be too. Every record I offer, whether it be a common or rare item deserves the same respect as far as I am concerned and will be treated the same - just because an item is rare does not always mean it’s good. I get just as much pleasure offering a relatively common record in stunning near mint condition as the real rare items. All the pictures I use for your guidance are the item being offered with no digital enhancements. Room light factors can make things vary sometimes, that is hard to control, especially in winter. If any picture I take looks more flattering than the actual item for any reason, I will clearly state the fact in the advert and vice-versa. I hope the item below is to your liking – any questions can be emailed and I will do my very best to answer you. I am enthusiastic, and have a fair degree of knowledge about many genres and I promise quality items. Please assume all records I offer have NO jumps, sticks, warps or writing on covers or labels unless clearly stated to the contrary. Thanks for your interest and Good luck – MIKE.
Equipment Used for Play-Grading: I now play-grade ALL the records I offer (unless clearly stated to the contrary) on the following equipment:
Deck: Linn LP12/Hercules/Cirkus with Ittok Mk II arm and Ortofon Quintet Black moving coil cartridge (tracks at 2.2 grams). Amps: Naim Supernait 2 with Project USB phono stage and Tellerium Black interconnects. Speakers: B&W 805 Nautilus (bi-wired with Tellurium Black terminated cable) with REL subwoofer. All records I offer on are cleaned on a professional VPI-17 vacuum machine before play-grading for the cleanest and best possible sound and will include a brand new lined inner and protective cover too. Pictures taken with a Nikon D5000 SLR Digital Camera.
PACKING - THIS IS WHAT YOU GET.
What You Get: To confirm to the strict rules on shipping, I must now send ALL my packets ‘Signed-For’ with NO exceptions. Both buyers and sellers want their packets to have a safer journey and this is not a bad thing.
I now offer the fastest possible posting, often the very next day after payment is received or within two to three days maximum (unless on holiday). I only use FIRST-CLASS Mail. The record’s cover will be placed within a BRAND NEW soft protective sleeve and the actual record will be professionally cleaned on my new VPI-17 Pro vacuum system to give ultimate clean grooves and playing surfaces and the best possible looks and ultimate sound quality. You will NOT get tired, dull looking, dust infested records inside worn and foggy covers with tatty inners from this seller and that’s a promise and guarantee. All records are posted in professional boxes (NOT Mailers, these do not offer any real protection). The record(s) are REMOVED from their main cover to avoid edge splits and placed within a brand new polylined inner. The record’s original inner will be included if available. The boxes are then reinforced with at least TWO, ULTRA THICK stiffeners for maximum extra protection – these are FOUR TIMES thicker than commercial stiffeners and are custom-made for oneadayrecords. Really rare and expensive albums will even be Double Boxed if deemed necessary and possible. When larger boxes are used, the thick record and stiffener ‘sandwich’ is then thickly embedded into bubble-wrap to bulk out the record inside the box to centre the item inside to reduce the risk of damage still further. Printed address labels are used for clarity as well as a sender label. Customers requests or special needs for P&P will be respected if at all possible but ‘Signed-For’ posting is NOT an option anymore. I do not profit on posting, better quality packaging costs, I offer probably the best-value and safest shipping possible for ultimate confidence. The boxes and ultra thick double-wall stiffeners make a near impregnable fortress for safe shipping and this is used inland and overseas for ALL my records, not just the rare and expensive. I will invoice any winning buyer as soon as possible after the sale ends. My ‘loss’ or ‘damage rate’ is minuscule in over 17 years of trading and I consider that pretty exceptional. The only damage rate acceptable for this seller is ZERO and I think my packets will offer just that. It would take a vicious postman or postal service to damage these for sure. Oneadayrecords is a MAILER-FREE ZONE. I discount of course for multiple purchases with a maximum of FIVE records per box (one double can sometimes be included subject to total weight). All postage costs are below and at the top of the listing.
NOTE: First Time buyers: Please ask me first.
PLEASE NOTE: I now exercise my right to open a dispute after the rule of TWO days if no payment is received. I will then cancel the dispute to end the offer, again after the mandatory FOUR days and then offer the item to the runner-up or relist. The non-payer will also be blocked from my site as will any suspicious offers or offer withdrawals. Small businesses need prompt payment to trade and these strict rules WILL be applied.

SOME GENERAL GUIDES TO WEAR AND CONDITIONS TO HELP YOU DECIDE
My Use of Description Terminology: Surface Marks = Superficial, usually light marks, hairlines or light scuffs that rarely sound. Scratch = a needle mark that goes below the record’s surface, some will sound, some will not, my play-grade will inform. Original = a record that has been pressed with the first label design which does NOT necessarily mean a very first pressed record. First Pressing = A record that I believe or know to be a genuine very first pressed record. I do not claim to always know for sure, and that’s why I state the stamper and matrix numbers if at all possible, for those who claim to know what they all mean, the information is there for the collector to decide. I prefer to use terms like ‘Early Copy’ rather than ‘First Pressing’ if I am not totally sure. Surface Sound = Mild, light sound, usually light crackle or similar. Distortion = Break up of the actual sound caused by groove wear or damage from a chipped stylus – the most undesirable form of unwanted sound, vintage mono records were the most prone to this happening but not exclusively so. The symptoms of distortion are high frequency clipping, moderate constant crackle or an echo type sound quality. Violin, piano and vocals are most prone to groove-wear distortion. Feathering = Fraying or softening of the entry edge of a cover. Covers with feathered entrance edges are more likely to have had the actual record inserted and removed more than a non-feathered, sharp-edged cover which are always far more attractive. Set Off, actually a printer’s term for dark ink leaving mild residue on pale or white ink when rested upon. e.g. when a gatefold cover has black ink closed against white, this can leave some black residue on the pale area – this is mostly unavoidable or course.
The Argument for Vinyl Original sound and mix (mono mixes are rarely available on CD), high quality sound on clean copies (played on a hi-end dedicated analogue system – breathtaking sound!), beautiful, large format covers, artwork, inserts and even full size posters etc; huge investment potential, and the pleasure of owning ‘the real thing’.
