THE LABELS
THE RED AND PLUM LABELS ARE IN SUPERB CONDITION. NO STAINS OR HANDLING MARKS. THE WHITE BAND IN THE MIDDLE IS STILL PURE WHITE ALL THE WAY ACROSS.
THE COLOUR STRETCHES FULLY INTO THE UNWORN SPINDLE HOLE. THE BLACK TYPEFACE AND LOGOS ARE ALL UN-RUBBED AND PERFECTLY LEGIBLE. THERE ARE SOME SMALL SPIDER LINES AROUND THE SPINDLE HOLE INDICATING LIMITED PLAY
THE VINYL
THIS VINYL GLEAMS LIKE NEW, AND HAS LOST NONE OF ITS ORIGINAL LUSTRE. THERE ARE NO VISIBLE HANDLING MARKS OR LINES, AND IN DAYLIGHT THIS HEAVYWEIGHT DISC LOOKS FLAWLESS AND EVEN WHEN OFFERED UP TO INTENSE ILLUMINATION ALL THAT IS VISIBLE ARE A FEW EXTREMELY WISPY SLEEVE WITHDRAWAL HAIRLINES, A COUPLE OF ULTRA FINE SURFACE HANDLING LINES. AND ON SIDE TWO A TINY LITTLE SCUFF MARK (SEE PIC)
PLAYING THE RECORD
I BELIEVE THAT IF YOU ARE GOING TO SPEND YOUR MONEY ON A FANTASTIC COLLECTIBLE VINYL, THAT YOU SHOULD BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR WHAT YOU ARE BUYING. I HAVE THEREFORE INVESTED IN THE SOFTWARE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO DO JUST THAT.
I HAVE RECORDEDTHE ENTIRE ALBUM FROM START TO FINISH AS I NOW DO WITH ALLMY LISTINGS, AND I AM CONVINCED THAT BIDDERS WOULD LOVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE ABLE TO HEAR THE RECORD BEFORE LAYING ANY BID. THIS IS A SERVICE I AM DELIGHTED TO BE ABLE TO OFFER MY CUSTOMERS
PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO LISTEN TO THIS SUPERB RECORDING BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR BID, AS I WANT YOU TO BE HAPPY TO PLACE THIS IN YOUR COLLECTION.
THIS VINYL PLAYS EVERY BIT AS SUPERBLY AS IT LOOKS. FROM THE SECOND THE STYLUS IS LOWERED ONTO THE RUN IN GROOVE THE CLARITY OF REPRODUCTION COMES THROUGH CRISPLY AND CLEARLY. THIS IS A FIRST PRESS STEREO SOUND IN EVERY WAY.
THE VINYL PLAYS WITHOUT ANY BACKGROUND CRACKLE, OR LOUD CLICKS OR POPS
CERTAINLY NO EMBEDDED VINYL NOISE AND EVERY NOTE IS HEARD AS WAS INTENDED
THE LINKING GROOVE ARE EXTREMELY SILENT ADDING TO THE QUALITY OF THE REPRODUCTION
THERE ARE A FEW TINY LITTLE TICS JUST AS SIDE ONE TRACK TWO IS ENDING, AND TWO MORE AS TRACK THREE STARTS, AND OTHER THAN THAT PERHAPS 2-3 MORE OVER THE ENTIRE PLAYTHROUGH
I AM MORE THAN HAPPY TO GRADE THIS AUDIO PERFORMANCE NEARMINT
DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT THOUGH, HAVE A GOOD LISTEN AND JUDGE IT AGAINST YOUR PERSONAL STANDARDS
THE SLEEVE
MACNEILL LAMINATED SINGLE SLEEVE WITH THE TURQUOISE LETTERING AND GREY STRIP
THIS SUPERB SLEEVE HAS A GLEAMING MIRROR FINISH TO THE LAMINATE, AND ONLY HAS ONE AREA WHERE THERE IS A MINOR IMPERFECTION. THE BOTTOM LEFT CORNER HAS A LAMINATE CREASE LINE RUNNING ACROSS IT, AND THERE IS ALSO A SMALL PATCH OF BROWNING UNDER THE LAMINATE IN THE SAME CORNER
OTHER THAN THIS THERE ARE NO HEAVY CREASES OR BENDS,JUST A SLIVER OF LAMINATE LIFT DOWN THE LENGTH OF THE SPINE WHERE THERE ARE ALSO SIX LAMINATE PRESSURE LINES. JUST THREE TINY ONES ON THE TOP EDGE, AND TWO ON THE BOTTOM EDGE, PLUS ONE THUMB LINE TOWARDS THE OPENING EDGE
THE FOUR CORNERS ARE STILL VERY SQUARE WITH A TINY SPECK OF RUB TO THE VERY TIPS
THE TOP EDGE HAS ALL OF THE LAMINATE RUNNING SMOOTHLY FROM CORNER TO CORNER, AND ONLY A PIN PRICK OF RUB TO THE RIGHT TIP END. THE BOTTOM EDGE IS SIMILAR WITH A SPECK OF WHITE VISIBLE IN THE LEFT CORNER AND A PIN PRICK TO THE RIGHT TIP END
THE SPINE HAS SOME LIGHT FINGER TO THUMB IMPRESSIONS, SMOOTH LAMINATE WITH JUST TWO LINES RUNNING ACROSS AT THE BOTTOM. PERFECTLY LEGIBLE TYPEFACE
THE OPENING EDGE IS STILL RAZOR SHARP
