THE SCARECROW (Barrett)
The vinyl still has some sheen and plays through with no tics no clicks no skips and no repeats. Occasional background crackle in places. Many of the tracks play as EX+ but overall I would say EX. There are clusters of hairlines and surface scratches. Some more visible than others but nothing feel able throughout. Way ahead of its time and still as fresh today as 50 years ago
So to summarise the vinyl is not mint but considering its age is not bad either. Lots of light scratches but audio is generally strong throughout. Labels have no stickers or writing, some spindle wear to the middles. Inner has no splits but shows some age discolouration. Outer front laminated E.J.Day flip back sleeve has no splits but small crease top right. Fully legible writing on spine. Rear of sleeve is a bit grubby
See below for gradings.
I am happy to answer any questions. Good luck!
