Vinyl is visually in superb Ex+/Nm condition. Only a few very light sleeve removals marks can be detected under strong light. Very clean and glossy. Looks virtually unplayed. EX+/NMOriginal gatefold sleeve has moderate shelf wear to the edges and spine but no unwanted writing or tears. VGAudio is clean and crisp with no sticks pops or jumps and no distortion. Some light crackle but nothing which detracts from the great music. EXLabels - No writing or stickers and no spindle marks just some very minor age related marks. EX
Overall a great copy of this extremely rare first pressing with near mint vinyl.

Mint: 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.
Excellent: The record shows some signs of having been played, but there is very little lessening of sound quality. The cover and packaging might have slight wear and / or creasing.
Very Good: 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: 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..
Fair: The record is still just playable but has not been cared for properly and displays considerable surface noise: it may even jump. The cover and contents will be badly damaged or partly missing.
Poor: The record will not play properly due to scratches, bad surface noise etc.. The cover and contents will be badly damaged or partly missing.
Bad: The record is unplayable or might even be broken, and is only of use as a collection filler.
