Five Leaves Left - 1st

NICK DRAKE Five Leaves Left (Rare 1969 UK first press 10-track stereo vinyl LP on the pink 'block' label. This label design was short lived, with only two albums had their debut release on this label, while five other earlier Island releases were repressed using this design, making these albums highly desirable and very rare. Housed in the original matt gatefold picture sleeve with the lyrics for Three Hours [here titled 'Sundown'], Saturday Sun and River Man printed inside ILPS9105)

Tracklisting & More Information

More Information
The sleeve with this example is printed with the Island logo and Basing Street address along the bottom edge on the rear. This was only present on the first issue sleeves. The second issue had a slightly different shade of green on the front, manufactured from a thicker card and the back just has a small 'i' logo where the address is printed on the first issue.

Though the sleeve lets this copy down slightly as it displays some wear with a light crease to the top right corner and some edge scuffing/spine rubbing evident, on the plus side it is free of any rips or splits which is still pretty remarkable 50 years on!

The labels as previously stated are the black block 'i' logo design, and they remain very clean with no paper loss or writing. There are only a few very faint spindle marks around the centre hole, proving it has only been played a handful of times.

The matrix numbers are machine stamped into the 'dead wax' areas:

ILPS 9105 A-2
ILPS 9105 B-2

Despite being 50 years old, the vinyl remains in a stunning condition, with just the odd very faint mark, nothing really to mention, it really is a nice clean example.

We have professionally cleaned and play tested and can confirm that apart from the odd pop or click, there is very little lessening in sound quality, and sounds absolutely stunning.

A simply superb copy of this extremely hard to find first issue.
