I believe this little jewel was released in June of 1972. From what I have read, this was a promotional item that was distributed with a press sheet and band photo. I do not own these 2 items, nor have I ever seen them. The EP itself does not say "promotional" or anything to that effect, but judging from the notes that appear on the back of the picture sleeve, it seems that is the case. Note Phil's name erroneously printed as Peter Collins...how prophetic!
The picture sleeve is in Very Good+ condition. The front of the sleeve shows no ring wear, although there is a crease that is evident from the actual edge of the record itself. There is also a light mark perhaps 1/2 of an inch on the bottom right-hand corner in the white border area, which can be seen in one of the photos.
The back of the picture sleeve does have a slight visible ringwear where the top-side of the EP label would reside. It also 3 very small tears in the paper where the outer edge of the vinyl "sawed" it's way through the paper. These are hard to see and their locations are pointed out on the photo with the orange numbers with arrows pointing to the affected areas.
As long as I have owned this item (15 years?), the record and sleeve have been separately stored to prevent any further damage to the sleeve.
The record itself is is in Very Good condition. There are some minor scuffs and scratches, but nothing that ruins its presentation. I had NEVER before played this EP, but did for the first time today to insure that there were no skips (which there weren't). Mind you, not being the original owner, I remind you that this was the first time I played the disc.
Please view the provided photos to see for yourself this incredible addition to your Genesis collection.
