THE LABELS

THE cream coloured LABELS ARE IN TOP CONDITION SHOWING NO STAINS OR MARKS AND NO LOSS OF COLOUR.

 THE TYPEFACE IS EQUALLY PRISTINE AND ALL PERFECTLY LEGIBLE. there is just one visible spider line by the spindle hole

 

THE VINYL

THE HEAVYWEIGHT VINYL IS IN EXCEPTIONAL CONDITION AND HAS NOT LOST ANY OF ITS ORIGINAL LUSTRE. YOU CAN TELL THAT IT HAS NOT BEEN PLAYED MUCH JUST BY LOOKING AT HOW THE RECORD STILL GLEAMS. THERE ARE NO MARKS ON THE SURFACE EITHER, AND ONLY WHEN OFFERED UP TO THE SPOTLIGHT ARE THERE A FEW WISPY LINES TO BE SEEN

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 ALBUM FROM START TO FINISH AS I AM CONVINCED THAT BIIDERS WOULD LOVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR THE RECORD, BEFORE LAYING A BID. THIS IS A SERVICE I AM DELIGHTED TO BE ABLE TO OFFER MY CUSTOMERS

WHAT THIS VINYL GIVES YOU IS A TRULY FIRST PRESS STEREO REPRODUCTION, WITHOUT ANY DISTORTION AND  BACKGROUND CRACKLING.

THE CLARITY OF THE MIX IS CRYSTAL CLEAR AND VERY CLEAN

SUPERB STEREO SOUND 

NO EMBEDDED VINYL NOISE

NO CRACKLE, OR LOUD CLICKS

SOME VERY LOW LEBEL LIGHT STATIC LIKE BACKGROUND IN SOME OF THE SILENT PASSAGES ON SIDE TWO

I HEARD A FEW RANDOM TINY LITTLE DUST POPS/TICS DURING THE WHOLE OF THE PLAY

PLEASE TAKE A GOOD LISTEN AND JUDGE IT FOR YOURSELF

I AM MORE THAN HAPPY TO GRADE THIS VINYL NEAR MINT

 

 

 

 

THE SLEEVE

 

ORIGINAL ISLAND' UNLAMINATED SINGLE SLEEVE THAT IS REALLY VERY HARD TO GET IN ANY SORT OF COLLECTIBLE CONDITION, USUALLY BECAUSE THE MIRROR IS SCRATCHED AND THE DIECUT FRAME AROUND THE MIRROR IS OFTEN TORN, PLUS RING WEAR AND RUB USUALLY BLIGHT THE SLEEVE...BUT NOT THIS ONE!!!

IT HAS BEEN HOUSED INSIDE A PVC OUTER FROM NEW AND IS IN SPECTACULAR CONDITION

THIS IS ALSO THE VERY FIRST ISSUE SLEEVE WHERE THE MIRROR IS ACTUALLY STUCK ONTO THE CARD INNER AND IS NOT VISIBLE FROM INSIDE OF THE SLEEVE UNLIKE LATER ISSUES WHERE THE MIRROR IS JUST STUCK TO THE FRAME AND IS VISIBLE FROM INSIDE

THE FRONT SURFACE IS FLAT AND CLEAN AND HAS NO HEAVY CREASES

THE DIE CUT FRAME IS TOTALLY UNBLEMISHED AND THE MIRROR IS AS PERFECT AS I HAVE EVEN SEEN ONE, JUST ONE MINUSCULE THUMB LINE JUST UNDER THE TOP CENTRE

THE GREY COLOUR OF THE MAIN BODY IS PERFECT. NO RING WEAR OR RUBBING AT ALL, AND THE FOUR CORNERS ARE SHARP AND SQUARE

THERE ARE SOME TINY AND LIGHT PRESSURE  LINES CLOSE TO THE SPINE 

NONE ON THE TOP EDGE. ONE ON THE BOTTOM EDGE, AND NO THUMB LINES NEAR THE OPENING EDGE

THE TOP AND BOTTOM EDGES ARE 100% FREE FROM ANY SHELF WEAR. THE GREY COLOUR IS ALL THERE AND EVEN THE CORNER TIPS ARE TOTALLY UNBLEMISHED

THE SPINE IS EQUALLY PERFECT. NO COLOUR LOSS AND BOTH TIP ENDS ARE MINT. THE BLUE TEXT IS ALSO UNRUBBED

THE REAR SURFACE IS IN THE SAME IMMACULATE CONDITION AS THE FRONT

THE ORIGINAL LYRIC INNER SLEEVE USUALLY SUFFERS BADLY FROM GRIME AND SEAM SPLITS. THIS ONE IS TOTALLY UNSPLIT WITH PRISTINE FLIPBACKS ON THE SIDE. LOVELY WHITE CONDITION, NO CREASES AND ONLY THE BAREST SHADOW OF RECORD IMPRESSION

THE SLEEVE GRADES MINT MINUS

 

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