The fully laminated Garrod & Lofthouse side opening gatefold sleeve is intact & in EX condition, with some very light laminate & corner wear, with a small scratch on the front cover. The spine is intact and fully readable, but the laminate has lifted in places.
The plain black inners are in VG+ condition, with some creasing, the matt foldout poster is in EX condition & the four pictures and paper spacer are in EX condition.
The records are in visually VG+ condition, sides 1 & 2 have a quite a few faint hairlines & some needle marks and sides 3 & 4 have a few faint sleeve removal hairlines, scuffs & a couple of small needle marks visible under bright light on each side. The labels are in EX condition, clean & bright with evidence of a few spindle markings.
The sound reproduction is still EX, clear & precise throughout with definately no skips, sticks or jumps, but there is some brief background noise during the run in grooves & in a couple of the quieter passages, overall it is a great listen and plays really well!
