Labels: EXCELLENT +
Bright & clean with just a small handful of spindle trails to each unworn centre hole.
Disc - Visual: EXCELLENT
Both playing surfaces are clean and retain all of their factory shine. Apart from a 2cm light fingernail scuff on side 1 there is little more of significance to fault visually.
Audio: EXCELLENT +
Faultless, warm & unworn audio throughout on this little played disc which will not disappoint.
A clean, white & unyellowed example with a fine high-gloss front laminate bearing no 'thumbnails' and just a couple of small spine bends. The lower corners bear very light shelfwear but there are no heavy bumps to any and both opening edges are undamaged. The exposed rear panel is clean & unblemished with the only trace of wear being a tiny scuff to upper the corner of the lower flipback. Both seams & the spine are smooth and unworn.
