Disc 1: Side one MINT- Side twoEXCELLENT+
An outstanding and impressive looking
disc which retains its original high gloss factory sheen. Side one is totally
unmarked, even under strong halogen lighting nothing more is revealed other
than near invisible whispy sleeve removal marks. Side two on initial inspection appears in MINT condition, on closer
examination and when rotating and angling the record towards the light, two
superficial marks become visible. Under further examination under
halogen lighting there are some whispy sleeve removal marks.
Disc 2: Side three EXCELLENT+ Side four EXC+ to MINT-
An impressive looking disc with no marks
visible in daylight. Side three under close examination reveals the odd superficial mark and whispy sleeve removal marks. Side four has no real noticeable marks and grades between exc+ and nr MINT.
In summary; an outstanding set of well
cared for discs and difficult to find in this condition. Both discs lie 100%
flat on the turntable.
Labels: EXC+ to MINT-
All four labels are
in superb and fresh condition with only light spindle trails around the centre
hole. There is a KT tax code visible on side 2. There is no writing
or personalization to any label. All labels carry the ‘Sold in UK…’ label text.

disc two, but there is no groovewear or distortion to any of the music signals.The
record does not jump or stick.
An original 1968 1st issue wide
