Original 1972 copy of the one-off LP by the Bristol-based Folkal Point band, on Midas Records (MIDAS003). Stereo. Sleeve and record are both in Very Good condition. Detailed descriptions - pessimistic rather than optimistic, I hope - follow but prospective bidders are invited to contact me through eBay with their email address so that I can send MP3 files of each side of the album. That way it can be heard before purchase. Please note, no other correspondence will be entered into - ie no under the counter offers!
DISC: Some surface marks to vinyl, labels show minimal wear. Sound is generally very bright but expect light surface noise throughout. SIDE 1: Minor tick after 1 minute into track 1 for a few seconds. Few crackles at the end of this track, going into track 2. Occasional light ticks and crackles on remaining tracks, a bit more noticeable between tracks 3 and 4 and between 4 and 5. SIDE 2: Light crackles into first 20 seconds of track 1. These are caused by the pressing fault noted by at least one other past seller of a copy of this album (see Discogs). More light crackles into first 10 seconds or so of track 2 and elsewhere in track. Slight distortion, with crackles, for a second or two of side 4 as Cherie Musialak's sublime voice reaches a high note. Crackles return towards the end of this track. Other tracks have light surface noise. Please do ask to hear the MP3 files to judge for yourself.
SLEEVE: Shows general handling wear, creasing round edges, bumping to corners, aperture wear and minor ring wear. There are crinkles to the laminate on the front and the white edges have discoloured with age. remains of sticker glue to top right corner. The rear of the flip-back sleeve is also discoloured with age and has a few grubby marks. The spine is a little off-centre. No previous owners' names or inscriptions. Plain white inner bag is also discoloured. The record has now been placed in a new, poly-lined bag, but the original is included.
The album will be well-packaged and sent by a secure, signed for method. Bidders from outside the UK are welcome. Cost of postage/insurances etc will be met by me.
