Housed in its original front laminated, tri-flipback flipback 'Eskimo' cover.
N.B. This is a 100% original 1965 pressing and NOT a recent reproduction.
Labels: EXCELLENT +
Both are clean & undamaged showing only a small collection of well-aimed spindle trails around the side 2 centre hole.
Visual/Audio: VERY GOOD +
A respectable example of this rare disc which has received a moderate amount of careful play on good equipment only. Both playing surfaces are clean & glossy with nothing more than a couple of light surface marks/hairlines in strong daylight, but nothing we would call a scratch. Close inspection beneath halogen light reveals little more than some additional harmless wispy hairlines and a sparkling rainbow shine.
Sound quality: EXCELLENT +
All tracks sound fresh and clean with no trace of any groove/playwear distortion. There are no clicks, pops, jumps or any other audible distractions. Aside from the usual light vinyl background between tracks, there is little to fault overall.
Due to the thinness of card used, this cover is extremely difficult to find in anything approaching this condition. However, this example is an exception and retains a sparkling, unscratched front panel laminate free from any 'thumbnails' creases. A couple of tiny edge wrinkles and a faint disc impression from storage are the only significant signs of wear. The delicate opening edge is without any tears or feathering. The unlaminated rear panel is extremely clean with the only blemish being a small area of missing paper just above the word 'THE' in the upper right corner. Both seams and the unworded spine are fully smooth and fully intact.
