Here for sale the original UKpress of one of the best hard rock/prog albums to ever come out of England!
Absolute masterpiece,1st pressing on MAM-AS 1005 and housed in its iconic half laminated single sleeve.
Rarely turns upfor sale especially in such a nice condition!
Cover is in beautiful shape and the lamination still retains an excellent shine regardless of its age.
Spine is straight and solid with no streaks and rear is much cleaner than usual (unlike most copies which suffer from browning/staining).
The only few small flaws are depicted in the pictures I've taken (please refer to pictures 8-9-10).
Conservatively graded as EXCELLENT
I've carefully inspected therecord under strong direct light and I couldn't see any marks/scratches,just a few of the slightest paper scuffs.
Also,due to the Decca-type poly lined inner sleeve,you can notice a slight wavy pattern when looking at it against the light.
Anyway,I'm sure most people would easily grade this record as EX+ or even M-.
The record plays superb all the way through,no clicks/pops or other annoying noises,only a slight static at the beginning of side 2.
Labels are very clean (therecord has been barely played),just one single spindle mark visible on side 2.
Comes complete with its original poly lined inner sleevein great shape as well.
Both sides visually grade as a strong EXCELLENT
Audio ranges from EXCELLENT+ to NEAR MINT
