THE RECORDS

 

THE LABELS

THE ORANGE VERTIGO LABELS ARE IN  MINT CONDITION. A SOLID BASE COLOUR THAT IS FREE FROM ANY MARKS OR STAINS. FULLY RUNNING UNINTERRUPTED INTO THE UNWORN SPINDLE HOLE. THE BLACK TYPEFACE AND WHITE LOGO'S ARE ALL UNRUBBED AND PERFECTLY LEGIBLE.

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

IN FACT THIS ALBUM HAS REMAINED UNPLAYED UNTIL MY TEST PLAY TODAY, CONDUCTED WITH AN EXTEMELY LIGHT TRACKING WEIGHT OF UNDER 1.3

 

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. THIS IS A TRULY MINT DISC IN EVERY WAY

PLAYING THE RECORD

WE DO BELIEVE THAT A RARE LP SHOULD BE ABLE TO BE HEARD BY BIDDERS AND SO THAT IS WHAT WE HAVE  INVESTED IN. THE BUTTONS AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE WILL ALLOW YOU TO HEAR THE ACTUAL RECORD YOUR ARE THINKING OF BIDDING ON

THIS IS A SERVICE WE ARE DELIGHTED TO BE ABLE TO OFFER OUR CUSTOMERS

THE LP PLAYS THROUGH PERFECTLY ON BOTH SIDES, AND WE 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 NO STATIC HEARD EITHER IN THE LINKING GROOVES OR SILENT PASSAGES 

I CAN'T EVEN SAY THAT I HEARD ANY MORE THAN A COUPLE OF INSIGNIFICANT DUST POPS THROUGH THE ENTIRE PLAYTHROUGH

I AM MORE THAN HAPPY TO GRADE THIS PLAYTHROUGH AS MINT !!!

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

 

 

THE SLEEVE

 

SEMI LAMINATED PHONOGRAM SINGLE SLEEVE

THE FRONT SURFACE IS FLAT AND CLEAN AND FREE FROM ANY HEAVY CREASES OR DEEP CREASE LINES.THE SHEEN IS JUST MAGNIFICENT AND LOOKS SUPERB.

THE BLACK COLOUR IS ALSO IN PRISTINE UNRUBBED CONDITION, AND THIS IS PRETTY UNUSUAL FOR THIS SLEEVE

THERE AREE ABSOLUTELY NO PRESSURE LINES CLOSE TO THE SPINE , NONE 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 IMPRESSION

THE TOP AND BOTTOM EDGES ARE BOTH IN MINT CONDITION WITH ALL OF THE DELICATE BLACK SURFACE FULLY RUNNING FROM CORNER TO CORNER, AND EVEN THE TIPS REMAIN UNRUBBED

THE SPINE IS JUST OUTSTANDING. 100% FLAT AND TOTALLY UNSQUASHED. 

THE BLACK TYPEFACE IS ALL PERFECTLY LEGIBLE AND PRISTINE. THE WHITE BASE COLOUR IS CLEAN AND STILL WHITE AND EVEN THE TOP AND BOTTOM TIPS ARE UNRUBBED

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

THE REAR SURFACE IS ABSOLUTELY IMMACULATE AND AGAIN HAS A GLEAMING SURFACE. LIKE THE FRONT THERE ARE NO PRESSURE LINES AGAINST ANY OF THE EDGES

THE POLY LINED INNER SLEEVE IS THE CORRECT ONE FOR THIS FIRST PRESS WHICH WAS RELEASED ON APRIL 25TH 1980. THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER HAS THE CODE 15804 WHICH DECRYPTED MEANS 15.4.80 IT IS IN ABSOLUTELY MINT CONDITION. NO CREASES OR CREASE LINES, UNSPLIT , NO MARKS OR STAINS.
