THE RECORDS

 

THE LABELS

THE PICTURE LABEL ON SIDE A IS IN PRISTINE CONDITION. NO COLOUR LOSS AND NO MARKS OR STAINS. THE OLIVE GREEN WB LABEL ON SIDE 2 IS ALSO IN TOP CONDITION, SHOWING NO RUBBING OR FADING OF THE COLOURS EITHER.

THERE ARE JUST 3-4 TINY SPIDER LINES AROUND THE SPINDLE HOLE SHOWING JUST EXACTLY HOW CAREFULLY THIS WAS HANDLED AND HOW LITTLE PLAY IT HAS RECEIVED

 

THE VINYL

THE VINYL GLEAMS LIKE NEW AND IS CLEAR BY LOOKING AT IT THAT IT HAS BARELY BEEN PLAYED.IT IS AMAZING THAT SUCH A POPULAR ALBUM SHOULD HAVE JUST NOT BEEN ON A TURNTABLE MORE THAN A FEW TIMES. IN DAYLIGHT IT LOOKS ABSOLUTELY FLAWLESS, AND EVEN WHEN PLACED UNDER INTENSE ILLUMINATION THERE IS NO MORE THAN A COUPLE OF TINY WISPY SLEEVE WITHDRAWAL HAIRLINES VISIBLE. 

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 WITH ALL MY LISTINGS, BECAUSE I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT BIDDERS WOULD LOVE THE OPPORTUNITY 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

THIS VINYL PLAYS TO PERFECTION. FIRSTLY THERE IS NOT ONE SPECK OF DISTORTION TO THE SOUND WHICH IS CRISP AND CLEAN ALL THE WAY THROUGH.

THERE IS NO BACKGROUND CRACKLE AND NO LOUD CLICKS EITHER

NO EMBEDDED VINYL NOISE AND JUST A COUPLE OF SEMI SECONDS OF BARELY AUDIBLE STATIC LIKE BACKGROUND IN ONE OR TWO OF THE LINKING GROOVES.

NO DUST POPS WHATSOEVER, AND ONLY ONE TINY LITTLE STATIC TIC HEARD DURING THE WHOLE PLAY THROUGH

I AM VERY HAPPY TO BE ABLE TO GRADE THIS AUDIO MINT MINUS

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

 

 

THE SLEEVE

 

THIS IS SUCH A HARD SLEEVE TO FIND IN COLLECTIBLE CONDITION. THE FACT IS THAT IT IS MADE OF A REALLY POROUS WHITE CARD WITH A LIGHTLY TEXTURED SURFACE,  AND UNLAMINATED , WHICH MEANS THAT UNLESS PROPERLY PROTECTED THE WHITE SURFACE IS SUBJECTED TO GENERAL HANDLING AND WEAR, AND ALSO SEVERE STAINING AND FOXING

THIS ONE HOWEVER HAS CLEARLY BEEN WELL CARED FOR AND IS IN SUPERB ORIGINAL CONDITION AND FULLY WORKING CONDITION

THE FRONT SURFACE IS STILL VERY WHITE VIRTUALLY ALL OVER WITH THE ONLY MINUSCULE SIGNS OF HANDLING / AGEING BEING ON THE VERY EDGES OF THE COVER. THERE IS NO BENDING OR CREASING ANYWHERE ON THE SURFACE, AND ALL OF THE EXPOSED EDGES ARE RAZOR SHARP WITH THE LEFT FRONT EDGE HAVING A VERY TINY LITTLE NICK. THERE IS A TINY CREASE LINE ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER TIP 

THE SLEEVE HAS A UNIQUE FEATURE IN THAT THE FACE ON THE FRONT CAN BE ANIMATED BY PUSHING DOWN ON THE TOP EDGE OF THE SLEEVE, WHICH IN ITSELF IS FINE, BUT WITH CONSTANT USAGE THIS EDGE WEARS BADLY AND THE FACE WORKINGS SOME TIMES DO NOT OPERATE. HERE WE HAVE AN ABSOLUTELY PRISTINE WORKING FACE AND MECHANISM. THE TOP EDGE WHICH IS ALSO WHERE THE ALBUM IS PLACED INTO THE SLEEVE IS IN THE BEST CONDITION IMAGINABLE. THERE IS NO SHELF WEAR TO IT OR ANY OF THE OTHER EDGES FOR THAT MATTER

THE REAR SURFACE IS EVERY BIT AS CLEAN AND NEAR PRISTINE AS THE FRONT, AGAIN WITH PERFECT SHARP DGES. THE REAR SURFACE ALSO OPENS UP TO REVEAL THE CAN CAN IMAGE INSIDE, AND ONCE AGAIN DUE TO THE FACT THAT THIS SLEEVE HAS BEEN PROPERLY PROTECTED IT ONLY HAS THE VERY MILDEST SHADOW OF AGEING / HANDLING ON THE BORDERS

THE RARE POSTER INSERT IS MADE OF A VERY THIN PAPER, AND THIS ONE STILL HAS RAZOR SHARP FOLD LINES, IS VERY WHITE, AND UNCREASED, AND HAS NOT BEEN PLACED ON ANY WALL

THE ORIGINAL DIE CUT INNER IS FLAY AND STILL VERY WHITE. NO SEAM SPLITS AND NO CREASES

THE SLEEVE EASILY GRADES NEAR MINT

 

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