VINYL
A GREAT PLAYBACK OF THE GREATEST (AT LEAST TO THESE EARS) DEBUT LP OF ALL TIME. THERE IS SOME BACKGROUND, BUT YOU MOSTLY ONLY HEAR IT ON SIDE RUN-INS/OUTS AND TRACK BREAKS - BUT PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THERE IS SOME BACKGROUND THERE. TO BE HONEST, ON MY LINN YOU DON'T HEAR MUCH BUT THE MUSIC WHEN THE ACTUAL TRACK'S PLAYING, AND THE CLARITY OF THE AUDIO DURING THE TRACK PLAYBACK IS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. THE BACKGROUND DOESN'T DETRACT FOR ME FROM A GREAT PLAY-THROUGH. AUDIO GRADED AT A NICE AND DYNAMIC VG++. THESE RARE HEAVYWEIGHT VINYL FIRST PRESSINGS ARE FAMOUSLY ROBUST FOR PROVIDING AN EXCELLENT PLAYBACK - PROVED HERE!
VISUALLY, THE RECORD HAS OBVIOUSLY BEEN PLAYED AND HANDLED, AND THERE ARE QUITE A FEW OBVIOUS STORAGE MARKS AND HANDLING HAIRLINES - WOULD GRADE VISUALLY AS A NICE CLEAN VG. CRUCIALLY THOUGH, YOU CAN'T FEEL ANY OF THEM, SO THE BACKGROUND IS GENERAL LOW-LEVEL AS DESCRIBED , WITH NO LOUDER 'TICS' OR 'POPS'.
SO THERE WE GO - A GREAT PLAYING AND GENUINE PIECE OF MUSICAL HISTORY, GETTING MORE SCARCE AS THE YEARS ROLL ON BY...
PLAY GRADED ON A LINN SONDEK LP12 WITH ITTOK LV II ARM AND LINN KLYDE CARTRIDGE. ALL GRADING AS PER RRPG GUIDELINES. PLEASE SEE OUR 'GRADINGS EXPLAINED' SHOP PAGE FOR MORE INFO.

SLEEVE
FRONT LAMINATED EJ DAY SLEEVE A NICE SOLID VG WITH SOME GENERAL STORAGE WEAR. MAIN POINT IS RUBBING TO EDGES AND CORNERS.

CORRECT LARGE MONO, AND ANGUS MCBEAN CREDIT EXTREME BOTTOM RIGHT. NICE ORIGINAL'USE EMITEX'INNER SLEEVE -VG++ WITH NO TEARS OR WRITING.


LABELS

BLACK AND GOLD LABELS NICE CLEAN VG BOTH SIDES, WITH SOME WEAR AROUND THE SPINDLE HOLE. ALL WRITING AND CREDITS CLEAR AND LEGIBLE.
