Offered for sale is an original Japanese red vinyl pressing of Under the Jasmin Tree by the Modern Jazz Quartet, including the original obi.

About this record:  This copy of Under the Jasmin Tree is an original 1968 Japanese pressing on the Apple label.  This disc was pressed on “Everclean” red vinyl.

The cover is M-, with trace amounts of foxing.  The obi is M-.  The “hojyuhyo,” or reorder tag, is still attached.

This LP was issued without an insert.

The record is M- with a tiny inaudible mark in the run-in groove at the beginning of side one.   There are no spindle marks on the label; this record may be unplayed.

The original black paper inner sleeve is included and is VG++ with a few wrinkles but no splits.

An incredible copy of a nice Jazz LP and Beatles-related item and likely your final upgrade.

Background: The Modern Jazz Quartet seemed like an odd fit for the Beatles’ Apple Records, but in the late 1960s, the group released two albums for the label – Under the Jasmin Tree, and Space.  Both are rather hard to find, as neither album sold well in any country.

While most of the non-Beatles Apple LPs were issued in Japan, most are quite rare, and not all of them were issued on colored vinyl.

Under the Jasmin Tree was released in Japan in 1968, and as far as we know it was only available one time for a short print run.  Copies were pressed on both the regular black as well as the red “Everclean” vinyl, which was formulated to minimize static electricity.
