Housed in a front laminated, tri-flipback 'Garrod & Lofthouse' printed mono cover, complete with original rice-paper lined inner-sleeve.

Visual: NEAR MINT
Both playing surfaces shine 'as new' and are free from any scuffs, marks or scratches in strong daylight. Close examination beneath my unforgiving halogen desk lamp reveals only some harmless wispy paper hairlines consistent with the few times this discs has been removed from its inner-sleeve. You will be lucky to find a cleaner copy.
Sound Quality: MINT
Played just once or twice at most, everything on this amazing copy sounds as good as the day it way bought. All tracks play cleanly and clearly and are free from any trace of groove/playwear - even the easily worn 'Michelle'. There are of course no clicks, pops or tick to spoil the pleasure of this wondrous copy which will not require upgrading.
Cover: EXCELLENT +
An exquisite example which belies its 50 years.
The richly coloured front panel retains a superb high-gloss laminate bearing only very light touches of storage and a small bend towards the lower right corner.
There is a hint of wear to the tips of the right corners but no bumps or bruising to any, neither to either opening edge.
The rear panel is brilliant white and totally free from any age-discolouration or any writing or missing paper.
Both seams are smooth & unstressed and the spine is fully laminated & worded.
