Paul McCartney And Wings Venus and Mars 1st UK Press Pctc 254 Mint Archive Complete
Venus and Mars is the fourth studio album by Wings. Released as the follow-up to the enormously successful Band on the Run, Venus and Mars continued Wings’ string of success and would prove a springboard for a year-long worldwide tour. It was Paul McCartney’s first post-Beatles album to be released worldwide on the Capitol Records label.
Nice beautiful original UK issue near mint vinyl which look unblemished and unplayed barely a spider mark can be seen on the labels. This is complete with the original unlaminated Garrod & Lofthouse cover

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 like new in my opinion.
The Audio Quality:
I have not played this vinyl but I would expect a near as perfect sound reproduction. Please ask if you require a play test?

These are the original 1st issue custom Labels: barely one or two feint spidering can barely be seen angled to the lighton one side only there is little if no spindle wear the hole is perfectly round. Light rubbing on the labels to mention with age only.
The Record Sleeve:
This is the original thick card lyric record sleeve has no splits or tears. The vinyl is now always stored seperately from the vinyl.
This is the original 1st issue un laminated gatefold cover . There are no 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 like new, I would grade this at least excellent plus to NEAR MINT in my opinion.
There are two poster enclosed. Note: There is a little mark/residue on the rear where this has been put on a wall with blue tack at some point.
