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 angled in strong light would be light whyspy sleeve removal type only. The playing surface is lovely. Visually look unplayed in my opinion.

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 as mint in my opinion.

The Matrix Endings:

Side 1″A-1U″
Side 2″B-1U″

The Labels:

These are the original 1st issue CUSTOM UAG Labels: (correct for this early pressing) No visible spidering can be seen angled to the light and there is little if no spindle wear the hole is perfectly round. This obviously looks un played in my opinion.

The Record Sleeve:

This is the original card  record sleeve very clean, light creases only..

Lyric inner

This is lovely and clean like new.

The Cover:

This is the original 1st issue UAG UK printed un-laminated gatefold cover. This is nice and straight as it should be. no edge splits or tares.  I would grade this at least excellent plus to near mint in my opinion.
