All are clean & unworn bearing only two light spindle trails around each centre hole on disc 1, and none on either of disc 2.

Visual:- Both NEAR MINT

Both discs are in superb condition and have clearly only been out of their inners a couple of times. Each side retains all of its deep-gloss factory shine, free from any groove-whitening or clouding.

All sides are free from any scuffs or scratches showing only some unavoidable, harmless light marks from the unforgiving black inner-sleeves.

Sound Quality: Both NEAR MINT

Both discs have received just a couple of careful plays and my play-check detected no trace of any groove/playwear distortion on any track or in either channel. In fact, apart from some minor low-level vinyl background during some of the quieter passages of disc 1 (present on 99% of all mono copies), there is nothing to fault. Both discs are free from any clicks, pops or any other audible faults or distractions.


A worthy cover for these fine discs which would not require upgrading.

Clean & and white throughout with no areas of discolouration or laminate wear.

Both front and rear panels lie perfectly flat with no 'thumbnail' wrinkles or indentations.

All corners are square and unbumped and all top-opening edges sharp and unworn.

The laminate around the raised wording in fully intact & the unique number is clean & bold.

Both panels inside the gatefold are flawless.

The spine is square, uncrushed and fully laminated, with has just a tiny 1cm split towards the lower end.

Poster & Photos: MINT

Inner-sleeves: NEAR MINT

Both are clean & flat with gentle storage wrinkling on one lower corner.

There is NO damage or wear to any of the central window, upper edges or any splits or stresses to any seam.
