Early Italian pressing of Black Sabbath with the Vertigo Swirl label.

Sleeve is generally in very nice condition although there is a scuff on the back and the inner of the gatefold looks like it was at one point stuck to itself. The spine is fully legible which is a bonus. No swirl inner unfortunately.

The record is G+. It has a light warp that doesn't seem to affect the way it plays and the label has some foxing on the side with the titles. The record has a multitude of light scuffs and scratches that create some surface noise mostly evident on quieter passages, especially the intro to Black Sabbath. It could probably do with a professional clean, it has been heavily played and enjoyed. That all being said, the majority of the record sounds excellent and would make a decent enough playing copy until a nicer one comes along. When tested on my turntable, it played jump and skip free.

If bidding from abroad, please wait for invoice to allow me to update the shipping cost.
