Vinyl Condition:A very, very strong VG+! Plays beautifully!
Cover Condition:VG/VG+, this is the glued, pocketed sleeve - not the foldover that was used later on. There is some light ringwear and some light discoloring at the top and on the back in a couple of spots. Previous price sticker on the front. No splits. The insert is intact and in phenominal condition!
Comments:Original1st press with the pocketed sleeve and insert whichDOES NOT have the t-shirt offer x-ed out! This would have made this one of the earliest copies as the t-shirt offer was obscured after the band quickly ran out of shirts. These rarely come doen the pike so don't miss you're opportunity to own this legendary7"!
A NOTE ABOUT SHIPPING... please read...
Ebay has recently enacted new terms which are designed to encourage sellers to offer free domestic shipping on their listings. I'm sure they have their reasons for doing this.Since nothing is truly "free", especially the cost of shipping, ebay is recommending it's sellers roll the shipping cost intothe price of the product. I've never been a huge fan of this tactic so I won't be doing it. I also have a solid amount of overseas customers who would not be receiving this "free" shipping and therefor would be getting the short end of it if I raised my prices to compensate for the possibility that a domestic clientmight buythe item.Why do I mention this? As more sellers conform to ebay's urgings those of us that do not will start to look like we are overcharging for shipping. Even a modest shipping charge, when compared to "free",will seem exorbitant. This will likely start to affect our Detailed Seller Ratings forshipping and handling charges. Low DSR scores can have a serious impact on sellers. Ebay offers discounts for the best DSR ratings and a few low scores can litterally cost a considerable sum of money in discounts lost. So if you are buying from me please consider, I do not make money on my shipping costs, there is no handling fee. I try and keep the shipping fees as close to the cost of actual postage plus the cost of packing materials - LP mailers cost nearly $1 apiece - and often end up losing a few cents in the transaction. My reputation, feedbacks and DSR scores are very important to me and my business.
Thank you, I appreciate your time.

In The Moment Records
WHY BUY FROM IN THE MOMENT RECORDS?
In The Moment Records is a veteranrecord seller. All LP's are strictly graded using an intense halogen floodlight. All LP's are gently hand cleaned prior to grading and cleaned using a Nitty Gritty cleaning machine prior to shipping. LP's are shipped outside of their jackets to avoid seam splits during transit. LP's are carefully packed using additional cardboard for added stiffness and then shipped inbrand new LP mailers. As an avid collector myself I know the disappointment of receiving poorly graded or packed LP's. It is my utmost priority to insure you are happy with your purchase and to encourage repeat business.
Due to a number of items being lost in the mail I will now be using delivery confirmation ondomestic shipments. The price of this will be included in the handling cost (which also includes the cost of the mailer). The increase in cost to you should be small and I do apologize for the inconvenience.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING RATES FOR 1 LP:
USPS 1st Class Internationalrates will beincluded oneach listingand both USPS Global Priority and 1st Class International rates will be posted on your invoice.
How we visually grade our records:
Mint (M): Album is still sealed in original shrinkwrap and has never been opened.
Near Mint (NM): Album has been opened and most likely played but is blemish free and as close to new as possible.
Excellent Plus (EX+) Album is very close to NM but may show more signs that it has been played. A very minor, unfeelable mark or two that has no affect on play may be noticed.
Excellent (EX): Album does show the most minor signs of usage, nothing that would effect sound quality.
Very Good Plus (VG+): Album will show some signs of wear and may have some minor scratches or scuffs. These albums we will usually play to gauge the sound quality. If there are any issues we will post them.
Very Good (VG): Album has obvious signs of usage. There are most likely blemishes that will affect sound quality.
How we grade our covers :
Mint (M):Cover is perfect in every way - likely still sealed or in the shrink.
Near Mint (NM): Cover is infantastic condition and may still be in it’s shrinkwrap. Very, very minor signs of wear may be apparent.
Excellent (EX): Cover is in great shape but will show the most minor signs of usage. Small amounts of wear on the corners or seams are possible, but no writing or other blemishes.
Very Good Plus (VG+): Cover will shows signs that it was used. No seam splits or heavy wear, but corners and seams will show wear. There may be the possibility of a previous owners name written on the cover, stickers or bent corners, etc. Cover graphics may have flecking or show a ring from the record.
Very Good (VG): Cover will show wear on seams and corners. Seam splits are possible. Cover graphics will be worn. Covers with heavy writing on them will earn this ranking.
Good (G): Cover is innot in greatshape but will still be functional. Generally we will not list albums with covers in this shape unless the album itself is in excellent shape and the cover is the only concern or if the album is extremely rare or valuable and there may still be interest in spite of condition.
Album and cover grading is not an exact science and is subject to the opinion of the grader. We strive to be as precise as possible. If you have any questions about our grading system or a particular item please don't hesitate to contact us.
