CONDITION

A well played disc but still with a very nice sound throughout.
An occasional tick is audible between tracks but there are no major faults or distractions anywhere.

Cover: VERY GOOD +

Clean & firm with some storagewear to the front panel which includes a few 'thumbnail' & spine wrinkles.
There is light shelfwear to the corners but both opening edges are sharp and unworn.
The exposed rear panel is clean & unblemished and all flipbacks are undamaged.
The top spine has some wear in the middle but the the spine is clearly worded.

Inner-sleeve: VERY GOOD +

Clean with some storage wrinkling, but no writing or seam splits.
