THE RECORDS 

THE LABELS

THE MATT ORANGE LABELS ARE IN PRISTINE CONDITION. THE COLOURS ARE RICH AND VIBRANT AND REMAIN UNRUBBED. THE SILVER TYPEFACE IS PERFECTLY LEGIBLE, AND THE SPINDLE HOLE TOTALLY UNWORN. THERE ARE NO VISIBLE SPIDER LINES BY THE HOLE 

THE VINYL

THE VINYL IS IN NICE CONDITION. THE DISC HAS RETAINED ITS ORIGINAL LUSTRE AND GLEAMS LIKE A POLISHED MIRROR. 

IN DAYLIGHT THE LP IS FLAWLESS, NOT A MARK ON IT.

 ONLY UNDER INTENSE ILLUMINATION CAN I DEE SOME VERY VERY FINE WISPY HAIRLINES, A LIGHT PATCHY DULLING TO A FEW SPOTS AND A COUPLE OF MSLL NON SOUNDING SURFACE MARKS

 

PLAYING THE RECORD

THE LP PLAYS THROUGH MAGNIFICENTLY ALL THE WAY THROUGH. THE STEREO REPRODUCTION IS JUST SUPERB, AND EVERY NOTE IS HEARD CRISPLY AND CLEARLY.

A STUNNING SOUND THAT IS PERFECT WITHOUT ANY DISTORTION AND CERTAINLY NO BACKGROUND CRACKLES OR CLICKS

NO EMBEDDED VINYL NOISE AND ONLY A FEW RANDOM SPECKS OF STATIC IN ONE OR TWO OF THE  THE LINKING GROOVES AND MOST SILENT PASSAGES

NO DUST POPS. JUST A COUPLE OF INSIGNFICANT LITTLE STATIC TICS

OUTSTANDING COPY, AND I AM VERY HAPPY TO GRADE THIS NEAR MINT

PLEASE TAKE A LONG LISTEN AND JUDGE IT FOR YOURSELF THOUGH AGAINST YOUR PERSONAL STANDARDS
