CONDITION

Disc:

Labels: EXECELLENT +

A superb clean & unblemished pair with no damage or wear to any of the delicate gold print and no spindle trails around either centre hole.

Visual: EXCELLENT

This strong EXCELLENT example has extremely clean playing surfaces which retain all of their deep-gloss rainbow sheen and bear no significant surface marks or wear visible in strong daylight. Closer exmaination directly beneath halogen light reveals a small number of light stylus hairlines and few faint surface marks consistent with the careful play this copy has received, but nothing deep or feelable.

Audio: EXCELLENT +

Unlike so many copies of this pressing, this example has been played with care on good quality equipment and the sound throughout is clean & unworn. All tracks are free from groovewear, crackle, clicks, pops or any other such distractions. In fact, apart from a touch of regular low-level vinyl background between tracks, there is little to fault audibly and so much to enjoy.

Cover: VERY GOOD

A respectable example which retains a clean high-gloss front panel with a few light edge wrinkles but no 'thumbnails' or heavy creasing. There is moderate wear to the corner tips and a hint to the opening edges without any tears or feathering. The rear panel is clean overall with a few small age-related blemishes, but no writing or any other major blemishes. There is a repair to the lower right corner flipback but all are intact and despite some flaking of the laminate along part of the lower seam, there are no seams splits. the spine is fully laminated and clearly worded.

Inner-sleeve: VERY GOOD +

Clean & intact with some light storage wrinkles but no writing or seam splits.
