The vinyl

On initial inspection it is hard to see a blemish at all, this looks as new in my opinion and gleems still retaining its sheen from new, This looks unplayed in my opinion. The vinyl lays perfectly flat on the turntable and is free from any warping.

Even in strong light this looks awesome, Please note most of the vinyls storage life it has been in a separate poly sleeve to minimise any sleeve removal marks\scuffs. Any marks that could possibly ever be seen under a strong light would only be just light wyspy scuffs/sleeve removal.

The Audio Quality

Any who know this album would appreciate that there are many quiet slow parts and this audio is absolutely exceptional crystal clear and vibrant through out with (no) loud constant clicks or pops and certainly no skips or jumps! More importantly (no) distortion or any signs that this has been overplayed ,infact this has barely been played at all! Cristal clear and very vibrant audio original UK press!

Very Nice playable and enjoyable copy!Audio Graded Near mint in my opinion.

Please note! This vinyl has been stored in a case laying dormant for many years, A build up of dirt and dust in the grooves causes static crackle\ticks!,,A constant clean before each play is recommended! This will reduce any static and will enhance the audio quality!

The labels

These are the original Roadrunner labels.

Amazingly I find it hard to see any spider traces even when looked at an angled in strong light ! Little if no spindle wear the spindle hole is perfectly round with absolutely no ware at all that I can see! All indications are that this has barely ever been played in my opinion.

The record sleeve

This is a plain white paper sleeve. No edge splits or tears clean and straight.
Note: the record is now always stored seperately from the sleeve and cover. This is how I have always stored my records.

The cover

This is the original 1st issue, 1st Dutch Press un-laminated glossy cover, in exceptional condition throughout. . Any storage wear noticed is only if looked for only in my opinion but you have to look to notice any in my opinion. Amazingly no real nasty creases to mention. The spine is square and all writing is readable. light indents only. Graded at least better than excellent in my opinion!
