Item Description

Welcome to my auctions....The time has come to sell my huge record collection over the next weeks/months...so check out my other vinyl listed, more added each week.
I am a private collector, selling my collection, I am not a dealer. Due to poor hearing, The record is sold as visually inspected so please base your bidding solely on this not what it might sound/play like. Even the most visually stunning record can have background noise, if you want perfect audio then please find another copy with audio gradings.

Both sides have NO Deep marks and NO Deep Scratches, Nothing feelable,
Side 1 has a handful of very light hairline/scratches and sleeve removal marks/scuffs under strong light
Side 2 has a few more light hairlines/scratches and 2 slightly more noticable scratches but non are feelable and both are quite small. There are again sleeve removal marks/scuffs under strong artificial light. The vinyl shines really nicely, a nice example of this super rare LP, it's not perfect but not battered. It is sold as visually described and bidding should be based soley on this not on how it might play.
Labels have no wear or damage with spiders legs in strong light...see photos
1st Press Gatefold Sleeve is On the whole in Nice condition, The front and back and inside are still clear. There is Some wear to corners and edges. The Spine has some wear and only partly readable, There is a mark on the front about 1cm square where old tape was removed and a very tiny white patch top right. Slight ringwear/rubbing to front and back, The back is still vibrant and clean but there are 4 very small areas where the picture has rubbed and is now white, the great thing is it is not really noticable due to the pictures on the back. Inside is flat and clean, minor rubbing to top and bottom. Small word writen on the left but only visable when held in strong light and not very big. Light wear to opening edge. small creases around edges mainly near spine edge. Nice example but with above mentioned wear mostly from storage and due to age of this Unlaminate sleeve. See Photos...
A Rare and Very hard to find LP.
I will describe any flaws such as wear to sleeves, scuffs, marks or scratches to vinyl and describe them honestly, if you expect a better condition than I have listed then you need to learn to read. I will grade based on visual inspection under artificial light. PLEASE remember this is Vinyl...even brand new vinyl can have clicks and pops...that's part of its charm...if you want perfect audio without background noise...how about CD's or MP3's? Due to my poor hearing, The record is sold as visually inspected so please base your bidding solely on this, in the event that a record may not play well or have background noise no refund will be given because I have no way of verifying and as such, if you place a bid you are acknowledging this
