Visual: EXC+ to MINT-
A fabulous looking and well cared for disc which is
completely unmarked when viewed in strong daylight. Under a strong halogen desk light there is some
superficial whispy sleeve removal surface marks. The vinyl grades on or around
Labels: EXC+ to MINT-
There are a number of light spindle trails to each
label but no wear around the spindle hole. All silver text is completely unworn.
Side one has the early and rare ZKT tax code, clearly indicating the record was
bought on or around the original release date in March 1963. There is no
writing or personalisation to either label.
Stunning audio throughout. The transition
from the Black Gold label to the newly designed Yellow & black label did
not necessarily mean there was a drop in audio quality and this copy bears this
out, as it has all the power and dynamism of a Black Gold copy. There is no
groove wear or distortion to any of the music signals. All gaps are silent with
only the sound of natural vinyl. A superb example and rare to find an audio in
this state of preservation on an original 1963 pressing.
An immaculate UK 1963 E J Day cover. One of the finest
examples I have come across. It still retains its original shop freshness. The
front panel is fresh and the laminate is totally unworn. There are two faint
thumbnails and a slight stain to the extreme top left corner but other than this
it is difficult to fault. The back panel is also clean and fresh with no
writing. All flipbacks are intact and the spine is in perfect condition. In my opinion
well in excess of an excellent+ grade hence near MINT. The cover is a true
rarity, E J day covers in this spectacular condition rarely turn up for
