Radio Kaos A1/B1 + Poster
This first pressing is in immaculate and is a final upgrade, archive copy no question. It plays with stunning quality and comes complete with a very clean cover and the original poster in sublime condition.
KAOS // A-1U - 1 - 4 / B-1U - 1 - 3
The audio on S1 is Mint-
The audio on S2 is Mint-
The cover is Ex+The lyric inner is Near Mint The labels are Mint
The vinyl has a glossy gleaming sheen like I have never seen. It has only been played once, maybe only twice as there is only one spindle line on S1 and nothing on S2. I can only see a handful of very faint sleeve removal hairlines and there are no scratches. This is visually stunning to say the least! A fantastic example of a first press.
There is a little static on the spoken intro and 'Radio Waves' then plays as Mint the audio is immaculate. The remaining tracks on S1 play with the same clarity and this is in all honesty the 'cleanest' Kaos I have ever heard. The playback throughout is of such a high standard it's incredible to think this vinyl is 30 years old. There was one click at the start of 'Me Or Him' but aside from that the track plays with perfect precision.
The audio quality does not diminish on S2. The clarity and depth is stunning and there is no interference whatsoever. This is how audio should be heard! There are no clicks, pops or crackle and as an example the very quiet intro on 'The Tide Is Turning' is of a standard so rarely heard. Even the fade out at the end has no 'background', absolutely superb! I cannot stress enough how immaculate the audio quality is across both sides. With only one click this is as good as it gets. A final, upgrade, archive first press without doubt.
The cover is in lovely condition with only a minor amount of shelf wear. The edges are extremely clean with only a minimal sign of rubbing on a couple of corners and the spine is also remains in great shape with just a one area of rubbing. The front covers has no marking just a couple of small creases near the bottom left corner and as can be seen the sticker remains perfectly intact. The reverse side is also very clean with no obvious marking. Overall this is a superb example of this cover and rarely found in this condition today.
This is in near perfect condition with no splits or tears and the corners have only the bare minimum of wear, hardly worth mentioning as it is so minor.
They have no marking or writing and hardly any spindle wear, just one spindle trace on S1.
The folded poster is is in superb condition with no marking etc and is practically as new.
