Labels: EXCELLENT +
A clean & unworn set with a handful of well-aimed spindle trail around each centre hole.
Disc: EXCELLENT +
Super-clean, unworn playing surfaces which bear just one or two very small/light marks on side 1 beneath halogen light. Played just a few times on quality equipment, the sound throughout is flawless.
Cover: EXCELLENT +
A 1st class example of this hard to find cover which retains a vibrant panels and an unscratched all-round with no 'thumbnail' wrinkles front or rear. The only significant sign of wear is a small bend to the lower left corner. Both panels inside are immaculate. The spine is fully laminated & worded and all seams are smooth & unsplit.
