    Yeah Im buying a original copy (but who can be completely certain with this album). It has no garrod and loft house credit on the inner sleeve, has the porky prime cute engravings on the record and is mint. Beside a tear on the cover. The guy wants 50pounds (60 usd). Is this a good price or should I look for another?

    Only if buying an original UK 1st pressing is important to you...the asking price seems fair.

    There is a thread that I started a few years back with lotsa info regarding how to identify a UK 1st pressing of UP.

    Jacket is not the greatest condition...maybe you should put in an offer and make sure that it's in fact a genuine 1st pressing.

    Good luck!

    Cover is trashed in my opinion. I would pay $30 max for it if the record is NM indeed.

    Yeah, the cover is VG-. It's not a rare album/pressing. $30 max sounds about right.
