Attention DEAR BUYERS ! Over a few recent sales of mine I began noting an increasing subjectivity from buyers about grading resulted in disputes over particular grading definitions. Despite all buyers have been kindly requested not to mistreat my grading system by having higher expectations than the reality is and been encouraged to ask specific questions about the item condition prior to bidding, some of them have ignored it. Hence, this has led to returns of the records resulting in losing money by me on postage to and from. No seller exists liking such situation. I am, as a seller, as much as you are, dear buyers, keen to be completing sales transactions to the best satisfaction of both of us. I try my very best to provide buyers with as precise grading as possible avoiding under- and over-grading the items I sell to rightly meet buyer`s expectations. That is why I use (+) or (-). My grading approach has been proven by many positive feedbacks gladly received from happy buyers with an exception of just a few. Therefore, I kindly encourage you to ask specific questions about the item condition before bidding should you have any doubts or uncertainty about my grading. I will be more than happy to give you additional information for your buying consideration in order to avoid subjective misgrading afterwards. Otherwise I will not accept return if you claim that, for example, my EX grade has turned into VG in your personal subjective opinion upon item arrival to you. Thank you for your kind understanding and happy purchases.
Sleeve Condition: NM
Please see pictures. Gatefold. Only light corners rubs. No more flaws
Vinyl Visual / Audio: Top playback. Best I`ve ever heard for this record that is soooo hard to find in this condition
Side 1. M / M Talk to the Wind - a test track - plays flawless
Side 2. M / M- Only during 40 sec from the start of Moonchild you can hear very very quiet repetitive not even a click. Rest plays flawless.
All my records are cleaned on Ultra Sound Audio Desk Systeme cleaning machine prior to playtesting. To playtest records a rigid AKAI AP-Q70 deck is used with an original Ortofon cartridge. It gives truly actual playtest result as has been many times observed that my records sound much much better on a modern playing equipment
Labels: EX+ / EX+ some spindle marks when angled. So the record has been played 5-6 times but very very carefully
Inner: Plastic Bags inner in VG
