Offered for sale is an original Japanese pressing of the Jimi Hendrix live album Isle of Wight, complete with obi and unique cover.

About this copy: The copy offered for sale is an original Japanese pressing, complete with obi and insert.  The cover is VG++, with a bit of wear at the corners.  The record is M-, having only a couple of spindle marks on the label.  The obi is VG+ and the “hojyuhyo”, or reorder tag, is still attached.

Background: For reasons unknown, the original pressings of several Jimi Hendrix albums had covers that were markedly different from their UK and U.S. counterparts.  While Axis: Bold as Love is probably the best known of these, Electric Ladyland, Smash Hits, and Isle of Wight also had covers that were unique to Japan.

In the case of Isle of Wight, it’s also a gatefold cover.
