CONDITION

Labels: EXCELLENT +

Both are clean & bright with some spindle marks around each but no writing or missing paper.

Disc Visual: EXCELLENT

Clean, deep-gloss playing surfaces bearing no noticeable marks or wear in strong daylight. Some light wispy marks consistent with careful sleeve removal and play beneath halogen light.

Disc Audio: EXCELLENT +

Only ever played on quality equipment, the sound quality throughout is clean, warm & clear with no traces of any groove/playwear distortion or any other interference. Aside from a little low-level vinyl background on the run-ins and between tracks, there is precious little to fault.

Cover: EXCELLENT +

A fine clean, strong & fully intact example which retains an unscratched, unrubbed high-gloss front panel free from any 'thumbnail's or any other such wear. There is some bruising to the upper left corner and a touch of shelfwear to the lower two, but both opening edges are clean & unworn. The rear panel is clean, white and unblemished and both seams are the spine are smooth, unstressed & totally unworn. 

Inner-sleeve: EXCELLENT +
