THE RECORDS

 

THE LABELS

BOTH LABELS ARE IN PRISTINE CONDITION. THE GREEN HARVEST BASE COLOUR IS RICH AND VIBRANT AND IS UNMARKED AND FULLY STRETCHES INTO THE UNWORN SPINDLE HOLE. THE BLACK TYPEFACE IS PERFECTLY LEGIBLE, AND A CLOSE EXAMINATION OF THE SPINDLE HOLES REVEALS JUST 2-3 SMALL SPIDER LINES ON DISC 2 AND 5-6 ON DISC ONE SHOWING JUST HOW LITTLE THIS FIRST PRESS SET HAS BEEN PLAYED

THE VINYL

THE HEAVYWEIGHT DISCS ARE BOTH IN SUPERB CONDITION. BOTH GLEAM LIKE POLISHED MIRRORS HAVING LOST NONE OF THE ORIGINAL DAY OF PURCHASE SHEEN AND IN DAYLIGHT THEY LOOK PERFECT. UNDER A MAGNIFYING HALO SIDE ONE SHOWS A FEW NON SOUNDING EMBEDDED DULL STREAKS, AND ON THE OTHER THREE SIDE JUST A COUPLE OF MINUSCULE WISPY HAIRLINES

THE TEST PLAY


THE LPS PLAY THROUGH BRILLIANTLY ON ALL SIDES, AND I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO TAKE A GOOD LISTEN TO THE SOUNDBITES WHICH DEMONSTRATE JUST HOW FANTASTIC THIS LP SOUNDS.

THE SILENT BITS ARE SILENT, AND THE MUSIC COMES THROUGH CRISPLY AND CLEARLY. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DISTORTION TO THE SOUND WHATSOEVER, MEANING THAT WHAT LITTLE PLAY THE LP HAS RECEIVED WAS DONE ON A SYSTEM THAT HAD A CORRECTLY WEIGHTED AND UNWORN STYLUS.

NO HEAVY BACKGROUND CRACKLE ANYWHERE AND NO LOUD CLICKS EITHER

LIKE MOST FLOYD ALBUMS THERE ARE NUMEROUS SILENT PASSAGES AND IT'S A REAL PLEASURE TO BE ABLE TO LISTEN TO THIS ALBUM WITHOUT ANY SERIOUS DEFECT.

THERE IS NO EMBEDDED VINYL NOISE 

ALL I HEARD DURING THE PLAYTHROUGH WAS A LITTLE OCCASIONAL SATTIC LIKE BACKGROUND IN A FEW SPOTS ON SIDE TWO, AND 3-4 LIGHT TICS ON TRACK ONE SIDE FOUR

I AM MORE THAN HAPPY TO GRADE THIS AUDIO NEAR MINT 

I URGE YOU TO TAKE A FULL LISTEN TO THE LP AND JUDGE IT AGAINST YOUR OWN PERSONAL STANDARDS THOUGH

THE FOUR CORNERS ARE SHARP AND SQUARE WITH A DOT OF RUB TO THE TOP RIGHT TIP

THE TOP AND BOTTOM EDGES HAVE NO SHELF WEAR, WITH ALL OF THE LAMINATE RUNNING FULLY FROM CORNER TO CORNER AND ONLY THE RIGHT CORNER TIP ENDS SHOW A PIN PRICK OF RUB.

THE SPINE IS FLAT AND 100% UNSQUASHED. THE LAMINATE HAS A BIT OF FLAKE AT THEW TOP AND PEEL AT THE BOTTOM. THE TYPEFACE IS ALL PERFECT

THE TWO OPENING EDGES ARE RAZOR SHARP WITH JUST A COUPLE OF TINY THUMB NAIL NICKS TO SHOW THAT THE LP HAS ONLY EVER BEEN OUT OF THE COVER A FEW TIMES.

THE REAR SURFACE IS IN THE SAME SUPERB CONDITION AS THE FRONT . A COUPLE OF PRESSURE LINES NEAR THE TOP OF THE SPINE.

OPENING THE GATEFOLD REVEALS THE TWO INNER PANELS, WHICH ARE UNLAMINATED AND IN SUPERB ORIGINAL UNMARKED CONDITION

THE TWO INNER SLEEVES HAVE NO SPLITS TO ANY OF THE SEAMS

HAPPY TO GRADE THIS SLEEVE NEAR MINT
