The Ruts - "In A Rut".
Apart from acetates and test pressings, this is one of the rarest 7" records from The Ruts. Only 1000 pressed before being re-released. This record frequently sells for $400.00 and up so grab this while you can. Vinyl does have a few scuff marks on the A-side but this does not affect sound quality on my record player. Other than that, the vinyl is in excellent condition considering the age of the record. If you have any more questions, please contact me, thanks. I will pay for the additional insurance on this item only.

Record Collectors Grading systemMint (M)The record itself is in brand new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. The cover and any extra items such as the lyric sheet. booklet or poster are in perfect condition. Records marked as Sealed or Un-played should be Mint. Excellent (EX) (Near Mint) The record shows some signs of having been played, but there is very little lessening in sound quality. The cover and packaging might have slight wear and/or creasing.Very Good (VG)The record has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticeable surface marks and the occasional light scratch. Normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items, without any major defects is acceptableGood (G)The record has been played so much that the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and mild scratches. The cover and contents suffer from folding, scuffing of edges, spine splits, dis-coloration, etcFair (F)The record is still just playable but has not been cared for properly and displays considerable surface noise; it may even jump. The cover and contents will be torn, stained and/or defaced.Poor (P)The record will not play properly due to scratched, bad surface noise, etc. The cover and contents will be badly damaged or partly missingBad (B)The record is unplayable or might even be broken, and is only of use as a collection-fillerCD's and CASSETTES As a general rule CD?s and Cassettes either play perfectly ? in which case they are in Mint condition ? or they don?t, in which case their value is minimal. Cassette tape is liable to deteriorate with age, even if it remains un-played, so care should be taken when buying old tapes. CD?s are difficult to grade visually; they can look perfect but actually be faulty, while in other cases they may appear damaged but still play perfectly. Cassette and CD inlays and booklets should be graded in the same way as record covers and sleeves. In general, the plastic containers for cassettes and CDs can easily be replaces if they are broken or scratched, but card covers and digi-paks are subject to the same wear as record sleeves.
