How could I forget this ? I've played the record. Dead quiet between tracks,no pops,clicks or anything . Perfect 10/10.Even going into and playing Michelle ( God knows,what they were thinking in the sequencing,of tracks ) As everyone knows,the inside tracks are the worst for fidelity. This is one of the few I've heard,where Michelle, actually sounds great . I'll ship record, in poly lined inner sleeve,and put original cover as well as record in poly lined sleeve outside of the cover,when shipping. They're are no seam splits,and I want to keep it that way. Lastly. Grading albums is difficult. What I call VG+ ,someone in the U.K. would call EX, in many ( not all ) cases . VG+ is exactly what it is,in reality. To grade EX would imply, cover and record,have next to no wear, to grade NM would have to be unplayed. This album and cover are very similar overall, to the ones selling for $1200. actually, this record, is possibly better condition . It has marks ( The camera AWAYS lies ,on pictures of vinyl ) ,still this is a nice tecord, as you can tell quite a bit, by looking around spindle hole,and the fact that there is no wear at all on the KT tax code . Please feel free to ask any questions . On Feb-27-17 at 22:29:23 PST, seller added the following information:
Just found something out. This cover with the BLACK " stereo" is really rare. Rarer than the silver.Why you ask. Apparently when they did the first run of the covers,they printed " stereo " in black. Immediately they stopped the printing of the black stereo on front cover,because no one could see it. There are very few with the black stereo covers . Pulled immediately . Hence Garrod and Lofthouse went with the silver, so the word stereo could be seen. Admittedly, I see their point. Very rare cover, as is the silver, but the silver is not as rare as the black. Had I not have showed a close up of Paul, most would have missed it .
