Housed in a previously undocumented variation of the front laminated, tri-flipback 'Garrod & Lofthouse' printed stereo cover.
Looking at the rear panel you can see that the stereo information panel to the left of the catalogue number is completely different than on usual covers. Image #3 shows the same area of the regular cover in comparison.
Complete with original red & white EMI advertising inner-sleeve.
Clean, strong and fully intact with an unfaded front panel where the only significant issue is a single heavy bend to the lower right corner. There are no 'thumbnail' or spine wrinkles. There is a small bend to the upper right corner but the other three and both opening edges are undamaged. The rear panel is unblemished & white where is should be with no writing or missing paper. Both seams and the spine are solid and unworn.
Disc: Side 1: VERY GOOD Side 2: VERY GOOD +
Both playing surfaces are clean & glossy with several surfaces marks on side 1, although none of which we would call a scratch. Side 2 is cleaner, bearing only some harmless wispy paper hairlines beneath halogen light.
Inner-sleeve: VERY GOOD
Small side seam splits.
