Condition (Very Important - I have endeavored to be totally honest in my appraisal) :
Cover - Good (see attached images) - Some minor laminate creasing to front of cover (towards the tail of airship/mast area) and some wear/staining to spine area of front and back cover (both these ailments can be clearly seen in my images). Some rubbing to cover extremities.
However, the album cover is complete, whole and retains its structural integrity, with only these cosmetic blemishes.
I have left the album in its inherited state, and have not attempted to clean any part of it.
Vinyl : Good/Very Good - Some surface lines are visible on the vinyl, with one very prominent one on "I cant quit you baby" and "How many times" (see separate image above). I have personally play tested this and although there is a not unpleasant audible analogue click, the album does NOT skip or jump.
There is also a small "bump" to edge of record (at the 4 o'clock position). This small and certainly is cosmetic only not effecting payback in any way).
This vinyl may have other surface cleaning/hair lines which do not materially effect play.

Overall : I can honestly say that out of all the albums I have played and play tested, this album sounds the best, with, in my opinion, an amazing bright and punchy clarity of sound.

All vinyl will be sent in 12" record mailer with card stiffeners.

Returns - Buyer has 14 days after receiving the item to return it. Buyer pays for postage.
