THE SLEEVE

THE SUPERBLY ILLUSTRATED, FRONT-LAMINATED PICTURE SLEEVE, WITH THREE REAR FLIP-BACKS, IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THERE IS SOME LIGHT WEAR AND SOME TANNING TO THE REAR. THERE IS SOME MINOR BRUISING TO A COUPLE OF THE CORNERS. THERE ARE A FEW TINY INDENTED MARKS TO THE FRONT. THER IS A SMALL RECTANGULAR STAIN ON THE BACK WHERE A SMALL STICKER ONCE SAT. THE EDGES ARE ALL NICE AND STRAIGHT AND ALL OF THE TEXT ON THE SPINE IS PERFECTLY LEGIBLE.

THE VINYL

VISUALLY THE VERY HEAVY, GLOSSY BLACK VINYL APPEARS TO BE IN NEAR MINT CONDITION AND UNDER BRIGHT LIGHT I CAN ONLY SEE A FEW TINY HAIRLINE MARKS. I HAVE CAREFULLY LISTENED TO BOTH SIDES AND I CAN REPORT THAT THE SOUND QUALITY IS SUPERB THROUGHOUT. WHAT A MAGNIFICENTLY EVOCATIVE ALBUM!

RECORD COLLECTOR GRADING SYSTEM

MINT (M) THE RECORD ITSELF IS IN BRAND NEW CONDITION WITH NO SURFACE MARKS OR DETERIORATION IN SOUND QUALITY. THE COVER AND ANY EXTRA ITEMS SUCH AS THE LYRIC SHEET, BOOKLET OR POSTER ARE IN PERFECT CONDITION. RECORDS ADVERTISED AS SEALED OR UNPLAYED SHOULD BE MINT.

VERY GOOD (VG) THE RECORD HAS OBVIOUSLY BEEN PLAYED MANY TIMES, BUT DISPLAYS NO MAJOR DETERIORATION IN SOUND QUALITY, DESPITE NOTICEABLE SURFACE MARKS AND THE OCCASIONAL LIGHT SCRATCH. NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR ON THE COVER OR EXTRA ITEMS, WITHOUT ANY MAJOR DEFECTS, IS ACCEPTABLE.

GOOD (G) THE RECORD HAS BEEN PLAYED SO MUCH THAT THE SOUND QUALITY HAS NOTICEABLY DETERIORATED, PERHAPS WITH SOME DISTORTION AND MILD SCRATCHES. THE COVER AND CONTENTS SUFFER FROM FOLDING, SCUFFING OF EDGES, SPINE SPLITS, DISCOLOURATION, ETC.
