The Vinyl:
This is the original thick heavier chunky slab of vinyl only found like this on the earliest pressings. On visual inspection I can’t see any needle scratches or indeed any marks that would cause any clicks or pops. Any marks that could possibly be seen anglerd in strong light would be light whyspy sleeve removal type only. The playing surface is lovely Near Mint.

The Audio Quality:
I have played this vinyl at very loud volume prior to this listing on a top system.  The audio is cristal clear and vibrant through out no distortion or any signs of groove wear at all. I heard no clicks or pops during the play of this vinyl. Lovely sounding copy. Audio graded at near mint in my opinion.

The Matrix Endings:
Side 1″A#1″
Side 2″B#1″

The Labels:
These are the original 1st issue Polydor Labels: Amazingly I can’t se any spidering at all, no spindle wear the hole is perfectly round. This has obviously only had very minimal play in my opinion this look totally unplayed condition.

The Record Sleeve:
This is the original poly lined plain white record sleeve light creasing, browning, becoming fragile with age only.

This is the original 1st issue E.J.Day & Co ltd gate fold cover laminated front only. Almost like new incredibly rare to find like this.
