  1. 15 x Audiophile-grade Japanese pressing LPs FS Condition, covers, contents etc: 1 All the vinyl is unmarked and lustrous. 2 Mostly these LPs come in sealable / disposable poly sleeves as presented in Japanese used record stores. 3 The covers look great and all minor flaws are identified: these descriptions are precise. 5 All have inserts (lyric sheets etc) as specified. 6 The cat# is included for easy reference to discogs. P&P at cost, starting at £4.50 for an individual LP, 1st class RM. On larger orders I can advise/quote in advance. Local collection or delivery is possible too, I’m in London SW11. Stereo Laboratory Almost unknown in the UK, this label flourished in Japan in the 1970’s issuing ultimate demonstration-grade LPs… Well that’s the translation that I was given from the copious booklet which is all in Japanese of course. My ears confirm that they are pretty awesome! All were manufactured by King Record Co Tokyo. Contact me if you want to try them out.
