Cover: Top opening laminated Garrod & Lofthouse gatefold cover embossed with "The Beatles" and No. 0007350 on the front. Excellent condition for its age - now over 52 years old! A couple of small light marks and some wear at the base of the spine only - see photos.
Records: Play tested. Played all the way through with only minimal background. An absolute delight to listen to in mono as the sound seems much more integrated than in stereo. The vinyl retains a nice sheen. While there are a couple of lightish marks, these have little impact on playback. No skips or jumps on my system and only very occasional crackle or clicks. What crackle there is seems to be mainly lmited to the intro and outro to each side and between tracks. These first pressing heavy duty UK vinyl pressings were made to last and this one sounds great. Overall the records looks VG+ and play Excellent. Amazing really for records that are now 52 years old!
Inner Sleeves: Original black inner sleeves in Excellent condition - see photos.
Labels: Excellent. Earliest 1st UK pressing labels with the 'Sold in the UK....' text but without "An EMI Recording" on any of the four labels - see scans
Lyric Poster: Excellent+.
Photos: All 4 photos in Excellent+ condition.
Flyer: This comes with a White Album flyer that was inside when I bought it. I do not know if it is original or a copy but I am including it anyway.
