THE RECORDS

 

THE LABELS

THE ORANGE AND YELLOW COLOURED LABELS ARE IN MAGNIFICENT CONDITION. THEY ARE RICH AND VIBRANT IN COLOUR AND THE BASE COLOUR FULLY STRETCHES INTO THE UNWORN SPINDLE HOLE. THE BLACK TYPEFACE IS CLEAR AND UNRUBBED AND ALL PERFECTLY LEGIBLE. FINALLY THERE IS JUST ONE SPIDER LINE NEXT TO THE SPINDLE HOLE 

 

THE VINYL

THE  VINYL IS IN EXCEPTIONAL CONDITION AND HAS NOT LOST ANY OF ITS ORIGINAL LUSTRE. A BEAUTIFULLY GLOSSY MINT DISC . IN DAYLIGHT THERE IS NOTHING TO SEE ON THIS SPARKLING VINYL,IT IS TOTALLY FLAWLESS  AND EVEN UNDER INTENSE ILLUMINATION THERE IS NOTHING TO SEE, OTHER THAN A FEW TINY NON SOUNDING SOUNDING WISPY HAIRLINES 

PLAYING THE RECORD

I BELIEVE THAT IF YOU ARE GOING TO SPEND YOUR MONEY ON A FANTASTIC COLLECTIBLE VINYL, THAT YOU SHOULD BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR WHAT YOU ARE BUYING. I HAVE THEREFORE INVESTED IN THE SOFTWARE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO DO JUST THAT.

I HAVE RECORDED THE ENTIRE ALBUM SET FROM START TO FINISH AS I DO WITH ALL MY LISTINGS, IN THE FIRM BELIEF THAT BIDDERS WOULD LOVE TO BE ABLE TO HEAR THE RECORD BEFORE LAYING A BID.

THIS IS A SERVICE I AM DELIGHTED TO BE ABLE TO OFFER MY CUSTOMERS

INCREDIBLE!!! THAT'S THE ONLY WAY TO DESCRIBE THE REPRODUCTION. SO MANY SILENT PASSAGES THAT PERFORM TO THE HIGHEST GRADE POSSIBLE

NOT ONE JOT OF DISTORTION ANYWHERE

NO HEAVY BACKGROUND CRACKLE AND NO LOUD CLICKS

NO EMBEDDED VINYL NOISE AND NO MORE THAN A COUPLE OF SMALL SPECKS OF BARELY AUDIBLE LIGHT STATIC AT THE END OF EACH SIDE

AND JUST ONE DUST POP THROUGH EITHER SIDE

I AM MORE THAN HAPPY TO GRADE THIS VINYL MINT MINUS!!!!

PLEASE TAKE A GOOD LISTEN AND JUDGE IT FOR YOURSELF AGAINST YOUR PERSONAL STANDARDS


 

 

 

 

THE SLEEVE

 

ORIGINAL GARROD AND LOFTHOUSE SINGLE SLEEVE

THE FRONT SURFACE OF THIS SLEEVE IS IN REALLY NICE CONDITION. THE SILVER SURFACE IS IN CLEAN CONDITION. MOST SLEEVES OF THIS TYPE SUFFER VERY BADLY FROM RING WEAR AND SERIOUS RUBBING, BUT THIS COPY ONLY HAS A VERY LIGHT SHADOW UNDER THE TOP EDGE AND NEAR THE OPENING EDGE

THERE ARE THREE SMALL PRESSURE LINES CLOSE TO THE SPINE. NONE ALONG THE TOP EDGE AND NONE ALONG THE  BOTTOM EDGE AND NO THUMB LINES NEAR THE OPENING EDGE EITHER. JUST IMMACULATE

THE TOP AND BOTTOM EDGES INCREDIBLY HAVE NO SHELF RUB WHICH IS VERY RARE ON THIS SLEEVE

THE SPINE IS IN GREAT SHAPE TOTALLY FLAT AND UNSQUASHED.A FEW DIMPLES ON THE SURFACE ONLY . THE SILVER SURFACE IS STILL PRISTINE ALL OVER. ALL OF THE BLACK TYPEFACE IS PRISTINE AND PERFECTLY LEGIBLE. BOTH TOP AND BOTTOM TIPS ARE IMMACULATE

THE OPENING IS STILL RAZOR SHARP WITH A COUPLE OF MINUSCULE THUMB NAIL NICKS ON THE REAR EDGE

THE REAR SURFACE IS ALSO IN TOP CONDITION,PERFECT COLOURS AND ONLY A COUPLE OF TINY EDGE LINES

THE PLAIN WHITE INNER SLEEVE IS FLAT AND ONLY HAS A COUPLE OF LIGHT CORNER CREASE LINES NO SPLITS TO THE SEAM AND NO DAMAGE 

THIS IS A GREAT SLEEVE AND GRADES NEAR MINT

GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR BID IF YOU CHOSE TO GO FOR IT
