I am amazed at the dizzy heights the bidding has reached. Please do not think you are bidding for an absolutely perfect mint recording. In view of my comments about the scratches I thought I should dare to play the record - there is a just audible click per revolution on the first track of side 2 which persists for about 2/3 of the track.The very minor scratches do not appear to have any effect but I must say I do not have a very upmarket and sensitive record player.The actual 'music' to my ears is a dreadful cacophony but in fact plays well and the stylus does not jump out of the groove like it might on a really bad scratch. The booklet insert is not present which I have noted in response to another query. If you have bid on the assumption that all is perfect then I will understand if you want to withdraw your bid.
