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.
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 least excellent plus to near mint in my opinion.
The Matrix: (Earliest possible for this pressing)
Side 1″SHVL 777 A-2″
Side 2″SHVL 777 B-1″
The Mother Stampers:

Any spidering can barely be seen angled to the light and there is little if no spindle wear the hole is perfectly round. This has obviously only had very minimal play in my opinion. Looks totally superb!
The Record Sleeve:
This is the original EMI Harvest Advertizing serpier record sleeve light creasing, browning, becoming fragile with age at the edges only.
This is the original 1st issue Garrod & Lofthouse laminated front only gate fold cover. There are no nasty creases on the front to mention this is nice and straight as it should be. no edge splits or tares. The rear is also lovely. This cover is not far from like it just came out of the shop in my opinion any storage ware or bumping is very minimal. I would grade this at least excellent plus in my opinion.
