Beautiful condition. Vinyl is Ex + NEAR MINT! Super-glossy, clean with very light Sign of Play either side. The long quiet intro to track A1 is nice and clear, a great start to a big, punchy 1st press sound when played on my Clearaudio turntable. A slight drop-out in the title 'Money', which occurs due to the pressing error of the matrix number a2 b2, can be heard. The 1st sleeve with large purple sticker is also in top condition, nice and sharp with no wear to the edges or spine and no ring wear front or back. Both posters have no tears, folds, tape marks or pin holes NEAR MINT! Both postcard stickers are unused NEAR MINT! The black poly-lined inner has no splits and the lining is fully intact Ex + A wonderful Set
