* Front laminated flipback sleeve printed by Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd.


* In original poly-lined EMI company sleeve


In beautiful condition (disc: EX+ / cover: EX)


Disc is in SUPERB condition, likely only played a handful of times, retains full shine, near mint - virtually no marks, scratches, blemishes or scuffs. I had the disc professionally cleaned on a KEITH MONKS record cleaning machine (in Glasgow's amazing LOUD & CLEAR audiophile hi-fi shop) and disc is supplied in a Nagaoka anti-static inner. There is some cleaning residue on the run-out grooves of side two (this will come off with a cloth and in no way affects play). Playback is STUNNING - crisp, sharp and clear - and on my equipment virtually NO background noise. A real beauty - mint minus or EX+.


Cover is in superb condition - NO writing, rips or tears. Only very light wear as you might expect from a very well stored 50 year old album - a couple of tiny lamination creases on the front, some very minor yellowing on the un-laminated reverse and tiny fold on top right flipback corner (as shown in photograph, although this can be glued down to be barely noticeable).


You will most likely never see another copy in such good condition again... Last copy sold on ebay for £4300 in lesser condition.


RECORD WILL BE SENT FULLY INSURED - I will cover postage costs, please do no ask me to send this un-insured. Disc will be sent with disc separated from outer sleeve to avoid any cover damage. Disc will be well packed in card, then bubble-wrapped. And then double boxed.


KEYWORDS: Decca SXL His Masters Voice ASD Columbia SAX Johanna Martzy Gioconda de Vito
