All records are graded to the Record Collector Guidelines, with extra information added as required when play tested. Also all photos above are of the exact record you will receive if successful.
This record is in excellent+ condition. It has light spindle marks visible on the labels but no pen marks, scuffs or any other damage such as stains or severe fading. The centres are not loose and overall the labels are in great shape with just the spindle marks to report.
As for the vinyl itself, both sides are really clean have a vivid gloss and have little obviously visible in normal light. There is one minor light thin line on side 1 and a couple of shorter minor lines in the runout of side 2 but other than these the record is very clean in normal light. There are incredibly minor wispy lines visible under very bright white light however, but not a drastic amount and nothing remotely serious. The record has no nasty scuffs or serious blemishes and has a beautiful vivid shine.
I play tested the record and it plays really well. It lays flat, there is virtually no movement in the record arm and the sound produced is superb. Its crisp, dynamic and really clear with only the most minimal trace of surface noise in the run in and very occasionally between some tracks. There is little to no distortion caused by excessive use and of course there are no skips, sticks or annoying clicks/pops. It was a quality audio experience and was a pleasure to play test.
The laminated gatefold sleeve is in excellent+ condition. It has little wear to the edges and corners, and the writing along the spine is all clearly legible. All the edges are strong with no splits or weak areas anywhere. There are no tears, scuffs or pen marks anywhere and only a very mild ring mark visible on the back. There is however a little laminate creasing in places. This is by no means drastic but there are a few dotted around. Other than the slight laminate creasing there is little to report with inside the gatefold in superb condition. Please study the pictures provided to gain as much information as possible on its condition.
It includes its original blue 'stereo' poly-lined inner which is in excellent condition. This has no splits or pen marks but a little creasing and mild discolouring.
The record will be packaged in cardboard stiffeners and bubble wrapped thoroughly when dispatched. It will also be sent in a brand new protective plastic sleeve, and within 24hrs of receiving payment to ensure swift delivery.
