CUSTOMER UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2022
For the past 2 years GG_Supersounds has been listing records that in the main are in Mint or very close to it condition. We continue to track down and list the very best records that we are able to for our ever growing customer base For those that have been with us over that period of time will know that there are two business partners listing on the site. One from Horsham and the other from Bognor Regis From time to time this has been confusing for our customers as there often 2 invoices to pay where purchases are made from different locations by one customer To rectify this we have decided that the Horsham location will continue to list on GG_Supersounds, whilst the Bognor Regis location will now list on GG-Superstuff.
IT WILL STILL BE POSSIBLE TO BUY FROM BOTH LOCATIONS AND HAVE COMBINED SHIPPING, BUT THIS WILL BE RELIANT OF THE TWO OF US MEETING UP, AND WILL THEREFORE USUALLY TAKE MORE TIME, BUT IT IS DO-ABLE
Nothing Else Changes - Still the same superb selection of the best records will be available

THE RECORD

 

THE LABELS

THE  LABELS ARE IN MINT CONDITION. A SOLID WHITE BASE COLOUR THAT IS FREE FROM ANY MARKS OR STAINS. THE BLACK TYPEFACE AND RED LOGO'S ARE ALL UNRUBBED AND PERFECTLY LEGIBLE.

THE SPINDLE HOLE IS TOTALLY UNWORN AND THERE IS JUST ONE TINY SPIDER LINE 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 SPOTLIGHTS 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.

THERE IS NO BACKGROUND CRACKLE AND CERTAINLY NO LOUD CLICKS ANYWHERE

NO EMBEDDED VINYL NOISE, AND THE LINKING GROOVES ARE SILENT

I HEARD NO  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 AGAINST YOUR OWN STANDARDS

 

 

THE SLEEVE

 

UNLAMINATED TEXTURED GATEFOLD SLEEVE

THE FRONT SURFACE IS FLAT AND CLEAN AND FREE FROM ANY HEAVY CREASES OR DEEP CREASE LINES.ALL OF THE ORIGINAL COLOUR IS THERE AND TOTALLY UNRUBBED. 

A MAGNIFICENT EXAMPLE, AND THE TEXTURED SURFACE IS JUST PERFECT 

THERE IS JUST ONE SMALL PRESSURE  LINE CLOSE TO THE SPINE ,ONE ALONG THE TOP EDGE, NONE ALONG THE BOTTOM EDGE AND NO THUMB LINES NEAR THE OPENING EDGE.

THERE IS NO RING WEAR AND NO RECORD SHAPE

THE TOP EDGES ARE BOTH IN PRISTINE CONDITION. FULLY COLOURED WITH UNBLEMISHED TIPS

THE BOTTOM EDGES ARE IDENTICAL

THE SPINE IS IN FLAT AND UNSQUASHED CONDITION, AGAIN ALL OF THE COLOUR FULLY RUNS FROM TOP TO BOTTOM WITH THE TIPS BOTH UNBLEMISHED, THE RED TYPEFACE IS IMMACULATE AND PERFECTLY LEGIBLE

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

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

A LIGHT SHADOW OD NATURAL AGEING ON THE EDGES

OPENING THE GATEFOLD REVEALS TWO PERFECT INNER PANELS. 

THE FIRST ISSUE BLACK  INNER SLEEVE  IS ALSO IN PRISTINE CONDITION. NO CREASES AND NO SPLITS 

I HAVE NO HESITATION IN GRADING THIS  SLEEVE  NEAR MINT

 

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