ARCADIUM BREATHE AWHILE UK MIDDLE EARTH LABEL EX+ VINYL VG+ SLEEVE
ARCADIUM BREATHE AWHILE
ORIGINAL MIDDLE EARTH UK LP
I am pleased to offer, from the top draw of my personal collection, the brilliant ARCADIUM 'BREATHE AWHILE' album. Not only an ultra rare album but one of the prized titles and highly sought after by serious collectors. If you’ve been looking for an excellent + ARCADIUM 'BREATHE AWHILE' disc coupled with a very good plus sleeve at the least then look no further, as this IS the one is for you.
The LAMINATED sleeve is a VERY GOOD plus example. It has been stored and is structurally strong with just a little corner tip loss of the laminate at the top left. It lies flat WITHOUT ripples, bends or bumps. NO rips, NO splits. No serious corner damage. It is only the smallest laminate loss at the very tip of the corner of the sleeve, which takes the grade down from EX to the very good plus grade, but I’m confident that this sleeve will satisfy most collectors as it has remained flat, square, and superbly defined.
The labels are excellent. NO writing, no stickers, residue, pulls or rips. No damage at all. Lovely pair of labels!!
The vinyl is in a great EX + condition. The album has only been played by me a few times in its lifetime. The labels back this up. And the look of the vinyl adds further credence to the statement that this has hardly been played. Another factor is that under normal light conditions, it has a Fantastic shine, NO nasty deep scratches, NO nasty marks, NO craters or dimples. Visually, I’m confident you’ll agree with me when I give it a VISUAL grading of EX PLUS in everyday lighting conditions.
Both the French and the UK release of this ultra rare album are noted for lots of back ground noise, crackle, hissing, and loud pops. Because of this, I have CRITICALLY LISTENED TO THE ALBUM THROUGHOUT BEFORE LISTING and I can report that this is not the case with this one. This album on my system reveals nothing to impair your listening enjoyment of the Album. Just the odd light dust tick is heard on a couple of the tracks on Side 1 as the stylus moves through any age dust laying in the grooves. There is nothing else to report. It reveals an Ex + audio return. I am sure a couple of plays with a good stylus going through Side 1 or a good clean would remove any groove dust and the odd light tick would vanish. It really is nothing at all to be concerned about, but I wanted to give you an honest report. There is no noise from the stylus as it moves over the dead wax between each track. In critically istening to Side 2 just a couple of very soft tics were heard and again it is silent between tracks. Therefore at the end of listening to the album, I can confirm the audio on both sides is as the vinyl looks, graded at Excellent +. Arcadium sing with great clarity and the music is top notch. This is, without question, a brilliant album with a big mixture of some seriously great songs. A fantastic listen on my turntable.
Don’t miss this one as it will prove to be a great investment. Although not new and mint, it really is in excellent plus condition with a very good plus sleeve.
I believe my Grade Is True!!!
OVERALL THIS IS A TOP SUPER RARE ALBUM AND COMES WITH A NO QUIBBLE MONEY BACK GUARANTEE!!!! I WOULD URGE YOU TO BID WITH TOTAL CONFIDENCE IN ME AND THIS ALBUM!!!
