Jimi Hendrix – Isle of Wight original Japan LP with obi and alternate cover

Jimi Hendrix - Isle of Wight -original Japan LP with unique cover and obi


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

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.  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.

This record is eligible for PayPal Credit financing by PayPal. U.S. customers may choose to pay later at checkout, and may receive up to six months financing with no interest. Click the banner below for more information. (opens in a popup window)
