~ Condition ~
The vinyl has been professionally cleaned on a Project VCS and play tested on a Rega Planar 3.
The vinyl itself is in Ex+ condition on both sides. The vinyl itself holds up excellently is virtually free from surface marks on both sides and no deep scratches. The centre label is very clean and shows minimum to no spindle wear and is excellent just like the overall condition of the LP. There is a slight noticeable surface mark on the second side which does not affect play, the mark covers the third song on side 2 and can be seen photographed in picture 10. I have play tested the record and there is minimum surface noise, a great way to own an original LP such as this.
The sleeve itself is in Ex+ condition. The sleeve holds together very well for its age. The spine is clearly legible. There are only a few minor crease marks to the sleeve here and there overall presenting very nicely. Overall this is a nice Ex+ sleeve. Please ask for more photos if required. The original emitex inner sleeve is also present and in excellent condition.
