THE PICTURE SLEEVE

THE FRONT-LAMINATED GARROD & LOFTHOUSE SLEEVE, WITH THE MID-SIZED “STEREO” ON THE FRONT AND THREE REAR FLIP-BACKS, IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THE FRONT LOOKS SUPERB WITH JUST A FEW MINOR WRINKLES IN THE LAMINATE. THE BACK IS VERY NICE AS WELL WITH SOME TANNING. THERE IS A NAME INSCRIBED ON THE BACK NEAR THE TOP EDGE. THERE IS SOME RUBBING TO THE TOP EDGE OF THE BOTTOM FLIP-BACK. THERE IS SOME VERY MINOR RUBBING TO TWO OF THE CORNERS. OTHERWISE THE EDGES AND THE SPINE ARE ALL IN SUPERB CONDITION AND THE TEXT ON THE ‘FLUTED’ SPINE IS PERFECTLY LEGIBLE.

THE NEMS POLY-BAG

THE NEMS POLYTHENE BAG, WHICH IMPLIES THAT THIS RECORD WAS PURCHASED FROM ONE OF BRIAN EPSTEIN’S TWO RECORD SHOPS IN LIVERPOOL, IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION WITH WEAR AND EXTENSIVE CREASING.

THE INNER SLEEVE

THIS RECORD IS COMPLETE WITH AN ORIGINAL POLY-LINED “EMITEX” INNER-SLEEVE, WHICH IS IN VERY GOOD+ CONDITION, WITH SOME LIGHT TANNING, MINOR WEAR AND A FEW CREASES.

THE VINYL

VISUALLY THE HEAVY BLACK VINYL IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AND UNDER BRIGHT LIGHT  I CAN ONLY SEE A FEW TINY MARKS. I HAVE JUST FINISHED LISTENING TO THIS GREAT ALBUM AND CAN CONFIRM THAT THE SOUND QUALITY IS SUPERB THROUGHOUT AND I HAVE RARELY HEARD A BETTER SOUNDING COPY.

THE LABELS

THE BLACK & YELLOW PARLOPHONE LABELS, WITH SILVER TEXT, ARE BOTH IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH SOME SLIGHT SPINDLE MARKS. THERE IS SOME LIGHT SPINDLE WEAR ON THE SIDE TWO LABEL . THE LABELS BOTH HAVE THE “THE PARLOPHONE CO LTD ...” AND “RECORDING FIRST PUBLISHED 1963” TEXT AND “SOLD IN THE UK” TEXT.
