Notes -- Great rare original pressing.
This auction is for the rare original pressing of the 1969 psych lp masterpiece Solid Oak by Top Drawer.
This lp was limited to only 500 copies. The band is from central Ohio. Mansfield / Ashland area. My hometown is Ashland so I've been lucky enough to come across a few of these overmy years of collecting. The vinyl is excellent with only some surface marks from the inner sleeve. No scratches. It plays with great sound, only minor soft crackles during quite passages. The cover is excellent in original shrink. Some minor discoloring on back cover where shrink doesn't cover edge. A truly great rarity that will hopefully go to a great home.Good Luck and happy bidding!
NM or M-
(NEAR MINT or MINT MINUS)
The vinyl is virtually flawless, bright and shiny. A very minor, barely visible scuff or two may be permitted, but no scratches. The disc should play with no audible noise.
E or VG++
(EXCELLENT or VERY GOOD ++)
Vinyl plays near perfectly, but may have minor paper scuffs that do not interfere with the sound quality. There can possibly be a hairline scratch or two but nothing that is obvious or affects play. Vinyl is bright and shiny.
(VERY GOOD PLUS)
Some visible surface wear, very minor scratches and scuffs, but minimal impact on the sound quality. Vinyl will still have good luster. This will satisfy most collectors.
Vinyl will have noticeable scratches or scuffs that cause minor surface noise, but do not overpower the music. There will be no skips. Vinyl may appear dull with some luster.
Well-played, dull, grayish vinyl with deeper scratches and wear causing distracting surface noise. The record will still play through without any skips.
