THE RECORDS

 

THE LABELS

THE SPACESHIP LABELS ARE IN SUPERB CONDITION. THE COLOURS ARE ALL RICH AND VIBRANT AND FULLY STRETCH INTO THE UNWORN SPINDLE HOLE. THE BLACK TYPEFACE IS PRISTINE AND UNRUBBED. A CLOSE EXAMINATION OF THE SPINDLE HOLE REVEALS ONE TINY LINE ON ONE SIDE AND NO SPIDER LINES WHATSOEVER ON THE OTHER. THERE IS STILL RESIDUAL SHARDS OF VINYL INSIDE OF THE SPINDLE HOLE

THE VINYL

THE RECORD GLEAMS LIKE NEW AND COULDN'T LOOK ANY BETTER. ALL OF THE ORIGINAL LUSTRE HAS BEEN RETAINED.THE DISC LOOKS TOTALLY FLAWLESS IN DAYLIGHT. THERE ARE NO VISIBLE MARKS OR ANY SIGNS OF HANDLING ON THE DISCS, AND EVEN UNDER INTENSE ILLUMINATION THERE IS NOTHING TO SEE WHATSOEVER. A MINT DISC IN EVERY WAY

PLAYING THE RECORD

I BELIEVE THAT IF YOU ARE GOING TO SPEND YOUR MONEY ON A FANTASTIC COLLECTABLE 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 AS 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.

THE LP PLAYS THROUGH BRILLIANTLY ON BOTH SIDES, AND I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO TAKE A GOOD LISTEN TO THE SOUNDBITES WHICH DEMONSTRATE JUST HOW FANTASTIC THIS VINYL SOUNDS 

THE VINYL PLAYS TO ABSOLUTE PERFECTION. NO DISTORTION TO THE SOUND AT ANY POINT

NO BACKGROUND CRACKLE AND CERTAINLY NO LOUD CLICKS

NO VINYL NOISE ANYWHERE, AND NO MORE THAN A COUPLE OF SPLIT SECONDS OF BARELY AUDUIBLE STATIC IN A LINKING GROOVE OR TWO

I DIDN'T HEAR ANY DUST POPS THROUGH THE ENTIRE PLAYTHROUGH

THIS RECORD IS EASY TO GRADE MINT 

PLEASE TAKE A GOOD LISTEN AND JUDGE IT FOR YOURSELF

 

 

THE SLEEVE

 

NON LAMINATED ,ROBOR SINGLE SLEEVE

THIS IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND IN A COLLECTABLE CONDITION. THE REASON BEING THAT THE DUSTY AND DELICATE BLACK SURFACE IS USUALLY FOUND WORN AWAY AND RING WORN. THE SILVER LOGO IS ALSO USUALLY FOUND TERRIBLY RUBBED, AND THE WHOLE THING IS PRONE TO SEVERE CREASING, PARTICULARLY AT THE SPINE WHERE THERE ARE USUALLY PLENTY OF WHITE LINES VISIBLE

THIS EXAMPLE HOWEVER DEFIES TIME AND LOGIC

THE FRONT SURFACE IS SUPERBLY CLEAN THERE IS NO LOSS OF BLACK TO THE SURFACE WHATSOEVER. IT IS QUITE INCREDIBLE TO SEE ONE IN THIS MAGNIFICENT CONDITION.

THERE IS NO RING WEAR EITHER NOR IS THERE ANY SIGN OF RECORD SHAPE.

THE FOUR CORNERS ARE SHARP AND SQUARE WITH JUST A TINY DOT OF RUB TO THE TOP LEFT TIP END

INCREDIBLY THERE IS NOT ONE SCRATCH OR BLEMISH TO THE SILVER TEXT TOP OR BOTTOM, AND THIS IS UNHEARD OF. THE SLEEVE HAS CLEARLY BEEN HOUSED INSIDE A PLASTIC OUTER FROM NEW

THERE IS JUST ONE MICROSCOPIC PRESSUIRE LINE NEAR THE SPINE. AGAIN UNHEARD OF. NONE EITHER ALONG THE TOP OR BOTTOM EDGES. NO THUMB LINES NEAR THE OPENING EDGE

THE TOP AND BOTTOM EDGES ARE BOTH JUST IMMACULATE. NO LOSS OF COLOUR WITH THE BLACK SURFACE RUNNING FROM TIP TO TIP UNINTERRUPTED

AGAIN IT'S CLEAR IS THAT THIS SLEEVE HAS BEEN HOUSED INSIDE A PLASTIC OUTER FOR MOST OF ITS LIFE

THE SPINE IS 100% FLAT AND UNSQUASHED. NOT EVEN A FINGER TO THUMB IMPRESSION. IT HAS THE CORRECT TAPERED AND AND EVEN HERE ALL OF THE BLACK SURFACE IS INTACT. NO RUBBING OR LOSS OF COLOUR AT ANY POINT ON THIS SPINE. ALL OF THE WHITE TYPEFACE IS PRISTINE AND  PERFECTLY LEGIBLE.

THE OPENING EDGE IS RAZOR SHARP

THE REAR SURFACE IS JUST AS CLEAN AND BLACK AS THE FRONT WITH JUST ONE TINY LINE CLOSE TO THE SPINE AND LIKE THE FRONT NO COLOUR LOSS WHATSOEVER

THE LYRIC INNER SLEEVE IS ALSO IN SUPERB ORIGINAL CONDITION. TOTALLY FLAT AND UNCREASED, AND NO SPLITS TO ANY OF THE SEAMS.  A PERFECT EXAMPLE, SOMETHING I HAVE NEVER NOTICED BEFORE BUT THE SONG TITLES ON THE INNER SLEEVE ARE EMBOSSED ONTO THE PAPER

INSIDE THE SLEEVE THE ORIGINAL LARGE POSTER IS HOUSED AND IN MINT CONDITION. SHARP CREASE LINES AND THE POSTER HAS CLEARLY NEVER BEEN NEAR A WALL.

 

I HAVE NO HESITATION IN GRADING THIS MAGNIFICENT SLEEVE MINT MINUS!!!

 

 

 

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