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 CLASSIC GREEN HARVEST LABELS ARE IN MINT CONDITION. THE BASE COLOUR STRETCHES FULLY INTO THE UNWORN SPINDLE HOLE. THIS LABEL CAN SUFFER FROM STAINING AND SHOWS ALL GREASY FINGERMARKS VERY EASILY. WHAT WE HAVE HERE THOUGH IT A PAIR OF LABELS THAT HAVE JUST NOT BEEN TOUCHED. THERE ARE 3-4 TINY SPIDER LINES BY THE SPINDLE HOLE

THE VINYL

THE  VINYL IS IN IMMACULATE CONDITION. THE SURFACE OF BOTH SIDES GLEAMS LIKE NEW, AND THERE ARE NO VISIBLE SIGNS OF HANDLING OR ANY UNWANTED MARKS. EVEN UNDER SPOTLIGHTS THERE IS NOTHING TO SEE  OTHER THAN A FEW VERY SMALL WISPY HAIRLINES

 

THE TEST PLAY

 WHAT IS VITAL ON ANY PROG ROCK ALBUM IS THAT THERE IS NO BACKGROUND NOISE AS THERE ARE MANY MANY QUIET OR NEAR SILENT PASSAGES, THAT WOULD SHOW UP ANY CRACKLING AND SPOIL THE PERFORMANCE. PARTICULARLY TRUE OF ANY PINK FLOYD TITLE


THERE IS NO DISTORTION TO THE SOUND, AT ALL ANYWHERE, MEANING THE LP WHEN IT WAS PLAYED WAS PLAYED ON A GOOD DECK WITH AN UNWORN STYLUS. THE CLARITY OF THE SOUND IS MAGNIFICENT. CLEAR AS A BELL, EVERY NOTE HEARD EXACTLY HOW IT WAS PRODUCED TO BE HEARD.

NO EMBEDDED VINYL NOISE

NO BACKGROUND CRACKLE

I HEARD A VERY TINY BIT OF EXTREMELY LOW LEVEL STATIC LIKE BACKGROUND AT THE START OF EACH SIDE FOR A FEW ROTATIONS (MAY NEED A FURTHER CLEAN) OTHER THAN THIS JUST THE OCCASIONAL SEMI SECOND OF STATIC HERE AND THERE BUT VERY INSIGNIFICANT

NO TICS OR POPS WHATSOEVER


 

I AM VERY HAPPY TO GRADE THIS VINYL MINT MINUS

TAKE A LISTEN TO THE RECORDING AND JUDGE IT FOR YOURSELF 

 

THE SLEEVE

 

TEXTURED MATTE GARROD AND LOFTHOUSE SLEEVE

USUALLY FOUND IN VERY POOR CONDITION DUE TO THE FLIMSY NATURE OF THE CARD BUT THIS ONE IS IN SUPERB CONDITION

THE FRONT SURFACE IS FLAT AND CLEAN AND THERE ARE NO CREASES, OR CREASE LINES ANYWHERE. 

THE COLOUR IS RICH AND VIBRANT AND THERE IS NO RUB OR COLOUR LOSS

NO RING WEAR OR RECORD SHAPE AND THE CORNERS ARE SHARP AND SQUARE WITH JUST A PIN PRICK OF RUB TO THE BOTTOM TWO

THERE ARE SIX TINY PRESSURE LINES NEXT TO THE SPINE

NONE ALONG THE TOP EDGE, NONE ALONG THE BOTTOM EDGE AND NO THUMB LINES NEAR THE OPENING EDGE

THE TOP EDGES ARE NEAR PRISTINE. FULLY COLOURED WITH ONLY A TINY SPECK OF RUB TO THE RIGHT CORNER TIPS

THE BOTTOM EDGES HAVE A SPECK OF RUB TO BOTH CORNER TIPS

THE SPINE IS FLAT,AND FREE FROM SQUASHING

THERE IS A SCUFF ON THE TOP LEADING EDGE AND A LITTLE RUB TO THE TIP ENDS

 THE OPENING EDGE HAS A VERY TINY BIT OF FEATHERING AT THE BOTTOM

THE REAR SURFACE IS EVERY BIT AS CLEAN AS THE FRONT.  

OPENING THE GATEFOLD REVEALS TWO CLEAN INNER PANELS WITH JUST A LITTLE AGEING BY THE INNER SPINE

THIS SLEEVE IS AS GOOD AS IT GETS AND I HAVE NO HESITATION IN GRADING IT EX++


 

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