Vinyl is more scuffed than scratched, visually graded VG.  Not play tested, but I don't see any major issues that would necessarily cause skips, etc.  Cover shows minor wear, some bruising, but overall in good shape with no splits.  Lyric sheet looks great.  Sleeve is VG+ overall.   A very nice specimen of this 1977 classic.  

Thanks for your interest! Please see additional terms below:



All of my items, regardless of format, are first wrapped in a plastic liner to protect against liquids, then wrapped in cushioning material (that is, if appropriate for the item) to protect against shocks, and finally placed in cardboard (or a cardboard box) to protect against punctures and sharp objects.



Sorry for the inconvenience in advance, but I add USPS Signature Confirmation to all U.S. orders over $75.  This extra service is at my expense.


ISSUES: I am confident you will be 100% happy with this sale.  However, none of us are perfect, so if you are unhappy in any way with your product, please reach out to me BEFORE leaving negative or neutral feedback. I will always try my best to correct any mistakes I might make!




If you are new to vinyl collecting, please do a brief search on the internet and familiarize yourself with the Goldmine grading system, since my goal is to conform to this standard.  From best to worst condition, the grades I use are:


NM (Near Mint),

VG+ (Very Good Plus),

VG (Very Good),

G+ (Good Plus),

G (Good),

F (Fair),

P (Poor). 

I do not use the Goldmine grades Mint (M) or Excellent (EX, or VG++). 


As you can probably already tell from this list, "Good" and "Fair" are not as "Good" or "Fair" as you may have expected!


Sometimes I may not be able to play test your record and will need to solely make a visual grade.  I make all visual grades by angling the record slowly under a 500-watt halogen light.



I may use the term "100% successful playthrough." This phrase denotes that I have sat and listened to the record in its entirety, and my stylus successfully tracked the entire record without skips, repeats, jumps, or loud recurring pops.  It does not refer to noise, distortion, or random loud pops that may be on the record.

Please assume the record has not been play tested unless explicitly stated. I sometimes may test isolated passages , e.g. to test surface noise, but this should not be construed as my having play tested the media in its entirety, unless explicitly stated in my comments.



As there seems to be just as many methods of cleaning vinyl as there are vinyl collectors, my policy is to respect each and every vinyl collector's right to implement the cleaning method that they prefer.  Therefore, please do not expect the discs I sell to be professional cleaned.  When I need to play test a disc,  I will always do a "dry cleaning" to remove dust.  I cannot guarantee, of course, that when you remove your disc from its sleeve it will be 100% dust free.  I  may perform "wet cleaning" on your discs at my sole discretion, but please do not expect this to be done all the time.   However, please rest assured that I will certainly clean MY stylus each time prior to testing a side of your vinyl.



For vinyl, I will remove the record with its inner sleeve from the outer sleeve to eliminate danger of seam splits during shipping. I will not do this for box sets since the vinyl is already protected.  However, custom inner sleeves (i.e., showing photos, lyrics, artwork, etc.) need to be similarly protected.  In these cases, before shipping I will remove the record from THAT custom inner sleeve and place it in a SEPARATE generic sleeve.  If a box set contains custom inner sleeves, I will follow the procedure above and place all materials back into the box case. 

Thanks for reading!
