Side A - Good ( Due to sticker damage on top of label) See pictures
Side B - Excellent +
Only the faintest marks are present - Superb Condition
Visual: Excellent ++ / Near Mint
Superb example of this super rare record. There is no clouding, groove whitening or hazing. There are a couple of light surface marks, but nothing that will interfere with play. Brilliant example. .
Sound Quality: Near Mint
The grooves are clean & totally unworn producing no trace of any groove/playwear distortion - even on the easily worn innermost tracks on each side. There are certainly no clicks pops, jumps, repeats or any other audible distractions. In fact, aside from a touch of low-level vinyl background on the run-ins there is nothing to distract from this heavenly listening experience.
Cover: EXCELLENT MINUS
Slight wear only - See Pictures
The Spine is near perfect as you can see in the pictures.Original Inner-sleeve: Good
Clean with some gentle storage wrinkles but no clouding to the central window or any writing, tears or seams splits.
