Offered for sale is a rare red vinyl white label promo copy of the Japan-only 2 LP compilation All About the 5th Dimension by the 5th Dimension, complete with original obi and poster.
About this copy: This copy of All About the 5th Dimension is an original Japanese white label promotional copy, pressed on red “Everclean” vinyl. We’re not sure, but it’s possible that red vinyl pressings of this LP may have been only used on promotional copies. All of the stock copies we’ve seen of this album were on black vinyl.
The cover is VG+, with a bit of wear at the edges and corners. The original obi is included, and is VG, with a couple of small tears. The “hojyuhyo”, or reorder tag, is still attached to the obi. This set includes a gatefold cover with a lyric booklet with lyrics in English and Japanese, so it did not include a separate lyric insert.
The two red vinyl white label promo records are both M-. Aside from a single spindle mark on each label, the records look unplayed, with no marks on the vinyl whatsoever. They’re gorgeous.
The original color poster is included.
A beautiful copy of a terrific album that includes most of the group’s hits.
