THE RECORDS

 

THE LABELS

THE BLUE LABELS  ARE IN MAGNIFICENT CONDITION, THE BASE COLOUR IS UNBLEMISHED AND FULLY STRETCHES INTO THE UNWORN SPINDLE HOLE. THE WHITE TYPEFACE IS ALSO CLEAR AND PERFECTLY LEGIBLE. A CLOSE EXAMINATION OF THE SPINDLE HOLE REVEALS JUST ONE SPIDER LINE, SHOWING JUST HOW LITTLE THIS LP HAS BEEN NEAR A TURNTABLE

THE VINYL

THE VINYL HERE LOOKS MAGNIFICENT ON BOTH SIDES AND IN DAYLIGHT IT IS TOTALLY FLAWLESS, AND EVEN UNDER INTENSE ILLUMINATION THERE IS NOTHING TO SEE OTHER THAN A COUPLE OF WISPY HAIRLINES AND A FEW NON SOUNDING SILVER FLECKS IN THE VINYL

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 FROM START TO FINISH AS I DO NOW WITH ALL MY LISTINGS, BECAUSE I FIRMLY BELIEVE 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

THE FIRST THING TO POINT OUT IS THAT THE CLARITY OF REPRODUCTION IS SUPERB. THE CRYSTAL CLEAR INSTRUMENTATION AND VOCALS ARE PURE FIRST PRESS. THERE IS CERTAINLY NO GROOVE WEAR TO THIS RARE RECORDING WHICH WOULD HAVE RESULTED IN SOME DISTORTION TO THE SOUND. THERE IS NONE.

THE STEREO REPRODUCTION IS JUST FANTASTIC, AND EVERY NOTE IS HEARD TO PERFECTION.

NO HEAVY BACKGROUND CRACKLE AND NO LOUD CLICKS

NO EMBEDDED VINYL NOISE ANYWHERE

ABSOLUTELY NO AUDIBLE STATIC IN ANY OF THE LINKING GROOVES OR THE MOST SILENT PASSAGES

I HEARD NO MORE DUST POPS OR STATIC TICS THROUGH THE WHOLE PLAYTHROUGH

I AM HAPPY TO  GRADE THIS AUDIO MINT 

PLEASE DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT, TAKE A LISTEN AND JUDGE FOR YOURSELF AGAINST YOUR OWN STANDARDS

THE FRONT SURFACE STILL HAS SUPERB UNBLEMISHED DEEP RICH COLOURS. THERE IS NO RING WEAR OR RECORD SHAPE, AND THE COLOURS ARE ALL IN PERFECT RUB FREE CONDITION
