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.
Cover: NEAR MINT
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.

Both panels inside the gatefold are flawless.
