Superb condition. EXCELLENT+ to M- Vinyl is super-glossy, clean, deep original sheen. It plays with no skips or sticks, no repeat clicks or loud obtrusive pops throughout the both sides. The all-important long, quiet 'heartbeat' intro to track A1 is nice and quiet and a great start to a big, punchy 1st press sound that continues as it starts throughout the two sides. A great listen. The 1st press 'midnight blue' tinted sleeve with large purple sticker is EXCELLENT+! with only light signs of handling and storage and a slight abrasion on the sticker Both posters have no tears, folds, tape marks or pin holes MINT-! Both postcard stickers are unused MINT-! The black poly-lined inner has no splits and the lining is fully intact with a slight damage to the palatine on the inner sleeve, as can be seen in the photo. Otherwise Superb condition, complete 1st UK press set.
