A truly excellent copy of The Cab's 1982 album.

First pressing in fold over sleeve.

Porky prime cut, A1/B1/C1/D1 Matrix.

The condition of the playing surfaces is superb,

all four sides are beautifully glossy, dust and fingerprint free.

It looks a very very good VG+.

The only reason I haven't graded as Mint is that it has been played.

The original fold over outer sleeve is in superb condition.

One of the very best I have seen on ebay.

There is a small amount of wear to the corners and edges.

and a little ring wear to the front cover.

Please see the listing images.

There is crease across the bottom of the closing side of the back cover.

Again, please see the listing images.

Before photographing, each record was cleaned using a Knosti disco-antistat record cleaner using a solution

of 1:8 parts Isopropyl Alcohol to De-ionised water, with a couple of drops of a surfactant.

If necessary, records were given a hands on clean, as bellow, followed by a second run through the Knosti.

1 - Removal of any surface dust with a light brushing over with a carbon fibre and velvet disc cleaning pad

2 - Deep cleaning with large (Big Fudge) velvet pad and cleaning solution

3 - A final brushing with a Pro-Ject carbon fibre record brush.

I am a professional photographer by trade, and have gone to great lengths to light and photograph covers, inner sleeves

and the vinyl themselves in such a way as to show, as accurately as possible, the actual condition of all.

Rest assured that what you see is exactly what will be despatched to you if you are the successful winner of each listing.

Happy to take returns, So please, feel free to bid with confidence.

I personally wouldn't bid on a pre-owned record without the option to return it if I felt that the seller hadn't been

totally truthful and transparent in their description of it, or that on receipt it didn't live up to my expectations. 

And I do not expect you to do so either. 

Unless otherwise stated every record was purchased by myself from new and only ever played

by myself on my own deck and with as expensive a cartridge as I could afford at the time.

And finally, because Mr or Mrs  Poasty may not handle your record with the same care and reverence that you or I would,

I will dispatch in a specialised corrugated cardboard record mailing outer, and if I feel even more protection is required

I will also include two extra sheets of 3mm corrugated cardboard for added safety and protection.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and for showing an interest

in giving a new home to one of my records.

I have other listings live right now and will be adding new ones on a regular basis,

so please do take a peak and stay tuned for more. I will combine postage, so please do ask.
