THE RECORD

 

THE LABELS

THE EYE PICTURE ARE IN MINT CONDITION. A SOLID BASE COLOUR THAT IS FREE FROM ANY MARKS OR STAINS AND FULLY RUNS INTO THE UNWORN SPINDLE HOLE. THE BLACK TYPEFACE AND LOGO'S ARE ALL UNRUBBED AND PERFECTLY LEGIBLE.

THE SPINDLE HOLE IS TOTALLY UNWORN AND THERE ARE ZEROSPIDER LINES AROUND THE HOLE SHOWING JUST HOW LITTLE THIS ALBUM HAS BEEN NEAR A TURNTABLE. 

 

THE VINYL

THE VINYL ABSOLUTELY GLEAMS LIKE A POLISHED MIRROR. THE SHEEN IS FLAWLESS AND IN DAYLIGHT IT IS TOTALLY MINT, AND EVEN WHEN PLACED UNDER INTENSE ILLUMINATION THERE IS NOTHING TO SEE 

THE TEST PLAY


THE LP PLAYS THROUGH PERFECTLY ON BOTH SIDES, AND I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO TAKE A GOOD LISTEN TO THE SOUNDBITES WHICH DEMONSTRATE JUST HOW FANTASTIC THIS ALBUM SOUNDS.

THE VINYL PLAYS WITHOUT ANY DISTORTION TO THE SOUND WHATSOEVER, MEANING THAT WHAT LITTLE PLAY THE RECORD HAS RECEIVED WAS COMPLETED ON A SYSTEM THAT HAD A PERFECTLY WEIGHTED AND UNWORN STYLUS.

THERE IS NO BACKGROUND CRACKLE AND CERTAINLY NO LOUD CLICKS ANYWHERE

NO EMBEDDED VINYL NOISE AND JUST A COUPLE OF SPLIT SECONDS OF STATIC IN A COUPLE OF THE LINKING GROOVES

I CAN'T EVEN SAY THAT I HEARD ANY DUST POPS THROUGH THE ENTIRE PLAYTHROUGH

I AM MORE THAN HAPPY TO GRADE THIS PLAYTHROUGH AS MINT

PLEASE DON'T JUST TAKE MY WORD FOR IT, TAKE A GOOD LISTEN AND JUDGE IT FOR YOURSELF

 

 

THE SLEEVE

 

 GLOSSY CARD SINGLE SLEEVE

THE FRONT SURFACE IS FLAT AND CLEAN AND FREE FROM ANY HEAVY CREASES OR CREASE LINES. ALL OF THE EASILY RUBBED COLOURS ARE THERE

THE ORIGINAL SHOP STICKER SITS PERFECTLY IN THE TOP RIGHT CORNER

THE FOUR CORNERS ARE SHARP AND SQUARE WITH THE TINIEST DING TO THE TOP RIGHT TIP END

THERE ARE TWO PRESSURE LINES NEXT TO THE SPINE. NONE ALONG THE TOP AND NONE EITHER ALONG THE BOTTOM EDGE, AND NO THUMB LINES NEAR THE OPENING EDGE

THERE IS NO RING WEAR OR EVEN RECORD SHAPE

THE TOP EDGE IS IN MINT CONDITION. FULLY COLOURED WITHOUT ANY RUB TO THE CORNER TIPS

THE BOTTOM EDGE IS IDENTICAL 

THE SPINE IS  TOTALLY FLAT AND 100% UNSQUASHED. AGAIN THE GREY COLOUR IS ALL THERE AND FULLY RUNS FROM TOP TO BOTTOM. THE TOP AND BOTTOM TIPS ARE UNBLEMISHED

THE OPENING EDGE IS RAZOR SHARP, AND SHOWS WHY THIS ALBUM HAS JUST NOT BEEN OUT OF THE SLEEVE

THE REAR SURFACE IS IDENTICAL TO THE FRONT. IN ABSOLUTELY TOP CONDITION

THE THIN LYRIC INNER SLEEVE IS  ALSO IN MINT CONDITION. NO SPLITS, NO CREASES, NO WRINKLES AND NO MARKS TO THE IMMACULATE  SURFACE
