It's a beautiful hard to find still sealed copy.
I love original pressings because I feel every LP is of it's time and place. The vinyl, and record pressings are all from that moment in time, and no re-pressing or re-mastering will ever make the sound better for me. PLEASE CHECK OUT MY OTHER LPS FOR SALE NOW ON EBAY. I AM POSTING SOME VERY COOL RECORDS.

occasional light scratch. Normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items, without any major defects, is acceptable.
