Sensational sound - crystal clear and incredibly immediate - impressively recorded.
My play-check at loud volume revealed no audio issues of note whatsoever - the whole set plays beautifully and flawlessly from start to finish
Apart from a few light marks to the untreated white back the sleeve is in great shape with no wear to speak of on the edges or spine - where all text is clear and bold - and the laminated front has a beautiful deep, glass-like glossy sheen
