1/ Crusade 1967 Stereo England 1st original press – 1967 because the blue/silver Decca label has an ''unboxed'' Decca logo, later reissues have a boxed Decca logo. (also has correct Rights Society: BIEM NCB GEMA & Runouts ZAL-7995-1W & ZAL-7996-1W
Vinyl Grade: VG, a high VG, good gloss, lots of long light scratches and faint trace/hairlines, nothing bad that stands out.
Sound Quality: +VG, plays with some light background surface noise, no pops/clicks/ticks, fully play tested and sounds fine.
Cover: +VG, flat, no damage, no edge wear, has light wear on back. Name written on back of cover and label one.
2/ Moving On – 1972 Australian press:
Vinyl Grade: EX, lovely gloss, no scratches, a few faint trace/hairlines only.
Sound Quality: EX, plays with no noticeable surface noise, no pops/clicks/ticks, fully play tested and sounds fine.
Cover: EX, excellent cover, flat, no damage, no edge wear.
Records graded directly under very bright table light for the visual grade. Sound quality checked by playing to ensure that visual grade and sound quality are consistent.
Mint M and Near Mint NM: Looks perfect as new. N and NM is only appropriate for new reissue records and not for vintage vinyl that has been played, regardless of how perfect it may look.
Excellent Plus +EX: Lovely gloss, no visible scratches, scuffs or marks. Has been played but has been handled well and still in great condition. (highest grade that I use for vintage vinyl)
Excellent EX: Lovely gloss, shows some slight signs of wear, including light trace/hairlines from the inner sleeve, light scuffs or very light marks that you would not expect to hear as surface noise.
Very Good Plus +VG: Shows a few more very light marks than is allowable for EX so not quite EX. These signs of use would be expected to cause some light surface noise but not to detract from the music.
Very Good VG: Shows light scratches and marks and some that you would expect to cause surface noise, especially in soft passages, between tracks and during a song?s intro and ending but not so much as to overpower the music which can still be enjoyed.
Very Good Minus -VG: Shows significant wear and marks that you would expect to cause noticeable surface noise that detracts from the music.
Good G: In the record world, 'Good' is not good! From here on down (Fair, Poor), we're talking about beat-up records lacking much of the original gloss and with many scratches and marks that you would expect to cause very noticeable surface noise and clicks/pops that seriously detract from enjoyment of the music.
Postage: I package very very well and only charge the actual Aust Post cost. International post currently not available because of the delays with sending parcels overseas.
Pleased to combine posting: 1 record is $8.95, 2 or 3 records is $12.20, 4 records to about 9 records is $15.35.
