The vinyl has a few superficial surface marks each side but has been fully play tested both sides and sounds excellent but pops and crackles a little bit on side two in the quiet spots here and there.
Looking at the record in normal room lighting, on side one there is a visible surface scratch across the first two and a half tracks, one across track two, and one half way between track two and three and one going across tracks five and six.
On side two, looking at the record in normal room lighting, there is a visible surface scratch across tracks two and three and across three and four. Looking at the record under reflected artificial light there are about four surface hairlines that do not affect play.
The record labels are crisp, clean and bright and in excellent condition.
The album jacket has some wear on the spine, three small areas near the middle, 4 mm, 2mm, 2mm, very slight corner knocks, and a split along back seam, top right by 4 cm. A very light brown stain on front, top, right, 2 cm x 2 cm, barely visible. Some light brown staining on the reverse of jacket, at very top in an area about 2 cm x 4 cm.
The inside of the gatefold jacket has light ring wear on right hand side, and extremely light ring wear, top only of left hand side, barely visible.

This is a Rare, 1973,

Australian First Pressing
