Visually the vinyl retains excellent deep lustrous sheen. Inspected under bright light there are some visible  marks, predominantly fine hairlines and sleeve removal marks and just one or two  other more noticeable marks and blemishes but really very little to affect sound quality. Playback is graded a strong EXCELLENT PLUS - plays really well, loud and rich and clear and really with very little surface noise - any that there is is really only noticeable in the quietest parts and between tracks etc.
The BLACK B&C record labels are graded EXCELLENT - little visible spindle wear.
The ORIGINAL thick card WIDE SPINE GATEFOLD PICTURE sleeve printed by EJ DAY GROUP is EXCELLENT PLUS - very little visible wear at all, couple of light corner dings and some VERY light visible ring wear on the back. Otherwise perfect and the wide spine remains strong and uncrushed and 100% legible etc. 



SHIPPING All Lps are packed carefully and shipped using purpose made new corrugated card RECORD MAILERS ( not thin card, single sleeve 'envelopes' etc ) and we take care to make sure that the vinyl and inner sleeve are removed from the outer sleeve to prevent seam splits during transit.
