THE RECORDS

 

THE LABELS

BOTH  SETS OF 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 HOLE REVEALS JUST 1-2 SMALL SPIDER LINES SHOWING JUST HOW LITTLE THIS FIRST PRESS SET HAS BEEN PLAYED. BOTH DISCS HAVE THE FACTORY SAMPLE STICKER ATTACHED TO THE TOP OF THE LABEL

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 INTENSE ILLUMINATION, THERE ARE SOME EMBEDDED DULL SPECKS AND SOME WISPY HAIRLINES PLUS A FEW ULTRA FINE ANGEL HAIRLINE HANDLING LINES

PLAYING THE RECORD

I BELIEVE THAT IF YOU ARE GOING TO SPEND YOUR MONEY ON A FANTASTIC COLLECTIBLE 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 LP SET FROM START TO FINISH AS I DO WITH ALL MY LISTINGS AS I BELIEVE THAT BIDDERS WOULD LOVE THE CHANCE TO BE ABLE TO HEAR WHAT THEY ARE CONSIDERING BIDDING ON. THIS IS A SERVICE I AM DELIGHTED TO BE ABLE TO OFFER MY CUSTOMERS

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 AND ONLY THE ODD LITTLE BACKGROUND STATIC HERE AND THERE PLUS A HANDFUL OF TINY DUST POPS/ STATIC TICS THROUGHOUT THE PLAY

I AM MORE THAN HAPPY TO GRADE THIS VINYL NEAR MINT

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

 

 

 

 

THE SLEEVE

 

FULLY LAMINATED E.J DAY AND CO GATEFOLD SLEEVE

THE FRONT SURFACE IS FLAT AND CLEAN, THERE ARE NO HEAVY CREASES OR CREASE LINES, NOR ARE THERE ANY BENDS OR DINGS. THE LAMINATE GLEAMS LIKE A POLISHED MIRROR AND IS FREE FROM ANY PEEL, LIFT OR FLAKE

THERE ARE TWO TINY LAMINATE LINES NEXT TO THE SPINE, THREE MORE ALONG THE TOP EDGE, ONE ALONG THE BOTTOM EDGE, AND ZERO THUMB LINES CLOSE TO THE OPENING EDGE

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

THE SPINE IS FLAT AND 100% UNSQUASHED. THE LAMINATE IS NEAR PERFECT.. JUST A LITTLE WEAR AT THE TOP AND BOTTOM TIPS.  THE BLACK TYPEFACE PRISTINE AND PERFECTLY LEGIBLE.

THE TWO OPENING EDGES ARE STILL SHARP WITH JUST A FEW 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 . FOUR TINY LINES NEAR THE SPINE, AND AGAIN ONE OR TWO NEAR THE TOP AND BOTTOM EDGE. 

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

AS THIS WAS A PROMO COPY THEY DIDN'T USE THE HARVEST ADVERTISING INNERS, INSTEAD THEY PLACED THE POLY LINED EMI INNERS INSIDE, SIMILAR TO THE ONES THAT CAME WITH DEEP PURPLE'S MACHINE HEAD. ONE IS PERFECTLY FLAT, THE OTHER HAS WRINKLES. NEITHER HAVE SPLITS

HAPPY TO GRADE THIS SLEEVE NEAR MINT

 

 

 

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