CONDITION

Labels

A & D: EXCELLENT

B & C: NEAR MINT

Discs

Visual: EXCELLENT

All playing surfaces are clean and retain all of their 'as new' deep-gloss shine. Close inspection directly beneath halogen light reveals little more than a light surface line on side C and some harmless wispy paper scuffs from the inner-sleeve, but no other significant blemishes or wear.

Audio: EXCELLENT +

A great sounding set which has received minimal play on quality equipment only. All tracks on all sides play cleanly with no traces of any groove/playwear and all of the clarity and power expected of such an early pressing. The aforementioned mark on side C causes a few very faint/soft ticks during the few of the quieter passages on that side. Difficult to find a better sounding set.

Cover: VERY GOOD +

A clean, fully intact example with moderate ring/storage wear to the the high-gloss outer panels and corners. Both panels are inside are clean & glossy with again, a touch of ring wear but no writing or or other such blemishes. The unworded spine and all seams are smooth & unstressed.
