THERE IS SOME LIGHTWEAR AND SOME SMALL WRINKLES IN THE LAMINATE. THE LAMINATE IS BEGINNING TO LIFT AND BUBBLE ALONG MUCH OF THE SPINE. THERE IS SOME LIGHT TANNING TO THE FRONT. THE BACK OF THE SLEEVE LOOKS TO BEINGOOD+CONDITION. IT LOOKS AS THOUGH THE TOP EDGE WAS TAPED AT SOME TIME AND REMOVAL OF THIS TAPE HAS DAMAGED THE TOP 1.5cm - SEE PHOTO. THERE ARE SOME WRINKLES AND A COUPLE OF SMALL STAINS ON THE BACK. THERE ARE NO SPLITS. THE TEXT ON THE SPINE IS STILL LEGIBLE DESPITE THE SPINE BEING SOMEWHAT FLATTENED AND HAVING A FEW LAMINATE 'CRACKS'.
THE VINYL
VISUALLY THE HEAVY, GLOSSY BLACK VINYL APPEARS TO BE INGOOD+CONDITION. THERE IS A MINOR WARP WHICH DOES NOT PREVENT OR AFFECT PLAY. THERE ARE PLENTY OF MARKS, SCUFFS AND SCRATCHES. I HAVE PLAYED BOTH SIDES IN FULL AND AFTER LISTENING CAREFULLY I CAN CONFIRM THAT THE SOUND QUALITY HAS DETERIORATED A BIT. THERE IS SOME BACKGROUND NOISE WHICH IS MAINLY AUDIBLE DURING QUIETER PASSAGES. THERE ARE SOME TICKS AND CLICKS. OTHERWISE THERE IS NOTHING NASTY AND I REALLY ENJOYED THE LISTEN - AT A LOUD VOLUME!!SOME TRACKS PLAYED FINE.
THE LABELS
THERED & PLUM ATLANTIC LABELS ARE BOTH INEXCELLENTCONDITION, WITH SOME SPINDLE MARKS AND ONE OR TWO MINOR STAINS.
