The Vinyl:
The vinyl lays perfectly flat on the turntable and is free of any warping. In strong light there are surface marks/scuffs/scratches but nothing too deep that cause any skips or jumps.

The Audio Quality:
This plays clean clear and vibrant through out no distortion any static/ticks heard is isolated only in quiet places in the form of isolated background ticks only . I would grade this audio at better than excellent to excellent plus  for the most part. Please allow for isolated ticks here and there, this may be reduced with a clean before each play because this album has been stored for over 35 years or more. (It was noted that I could see debrit on the playing surface after play indicating that this will need cleaning well.) On the whole this is very clear and vibrant, enjoyable playable copy.

The Labels:
Feature the Dark Apple label for side A (Only 1st Press later are lighter)  spider marks can be seen around the spindle hole. The labels feature the corrected Her Majesty track on side 2
