The surface marks, but
does not affect play !!!!

does not affect play !!!!
Both sides of this superb copy lay 100% flat on the turntable when playing, with no traces of dishing or warping.
Play: VG+ or better !!!!!
It plays withsome crackle between the tracks in quite areas , but still sounds great, so still a nice playing copy.
The record lays flat on the turntable and plays well without the needle sticking or jumping.
Please Note: A clean on a Proper Cleaning machine, would help a Great Deal to IMPROVE ON SOUND QUALITY, SO THIS RECORD CAN ONLY GET BETTER!!!!
The front laminated glossy front/matte white, by "Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd. " photo cover, is intact.
Both sides retain fresh, shiny and clear withsome AGE WEAR and very small writing on the rear top-left !!!!
The "EMITEX" Inner has some unavoidable light storage wrinkles.
All LPs are graded visually and conservatively under many bright lights. Questionable marks are play graded.
Factory Sealed/ Brand New: Never opened with original shrink wrap on it!!!
Mint: New condition...Look like new, no flaws whatsoever. Cover will look like it has just has been removed from shrink wrap.
Near Mint: Played One or Two times, no flaws, but a remote ever-so-slight amount of that shiny luster may be gone. Jacket will be virtually flawless, slightest signs of wear, maybe one bumped corner, or a hint of edge wear.
This Item may have some marks like -light scratch or light sleeve scuffing, that may sound briefly in a quieter passage. The jacket may have the very lightest signs of ring wear ,
some light corner or edge wear.
VG+: Very Good Plus. This record will have some light marks(light scratches and light sleeve scuffs), and it might make an occasional pop or crackle in parts, but will not even come close to overwhelming the listening experience. Still a very desirable grade... As for the jacket, it will start to show more signs of wear than a VG++ jacket, the ring wear may be slightly more evident, the edge wear or corner wear may be more defined as well.
VG: Very Good. The record may have several scratches and scuffs, though aside from some popping and crackling, will still be an enjoyable listen. No skips here. The jacket will have far more wear than the previous grades, such as: edge wear to the point of some minor seam splitting (the kind that can be repaired with tape or other means), ring wear (not terrible, but still distracting from the image), edge and corner wear, minor writing or a few stickers, or other similar defects.
VG- : Not terrible, usually represents 1 or 2 "ugly" marks or scratches, might be a little sketchy in a few spots, other than that would fair as a VG record. The jacket will show wear - ring wear, seam splits (still should be able to be taped up for repair), some writing and/or stickers, edge and corner wear, or other similar defects.
