Housed in a front laminated, tri-flipback 'Garrod & Lofthouse' printed cover with a small front stereo indicator.
Complete with its original Sepia EMI advertising inner-sleeve.
Only flaw is that a tiny fragment near the spindle hole on side 1 is lost, probably during manufacture.
Shows only faint traces of having been played.
Playing surfaces display only a few non-feelable hairlines, with only normal surface noise mostly evident in the song inlets and the more quiet moments.
Cover: VERY GOOD +
Sleeve is very glossy looking. However the bottom spine has a beginning split about 1". Spine is fully intact and all corners and flipbacks show only normal wear.
Inner-sleeve: VERY GOOD +
