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.

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:
Side 1″MCA-1557-W-2″
Side 2″MCA-1558-W-1″

The Mother Stampers:
Side 1 “1” “G”
Side 2 “1” “H”

The Labels:
These are the original 1st issue MCA Labels:(correct for this early pressing) 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.

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

The Cover:
This is the original US printed  un laminated  cover. There are no real 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. Any rubbing is minor at the edges only to mention I would grade this at least excellent plus to in my opinion.
