THE RECORDS

 

THE LABELS

THE RED AND PLUM LABELS ARE IN MINT CONDITION. BOTH BASE COLOURS ARE RICH AND VIBRANT, AND THE WHITEBAND IS STILL WHITE AND NOT SOILED AT ALL. THE BLACK TYPEFACE IS UNRUBBED AND PERFECTLY LEGIBLE. FINALLY THERE ARE JUST 2-3 TINY SPIDER LINES CLOSE TO THE SPINDLE HOLE SHOWING THAT THIS SUPERB VINYL HAS JUST HAD LIMITED PLAY


THE VINYL

THE HEAVYWEIGHT VINYL IS IN MAGNIFICENT CONDITION. IT HAS RETAINED ALL OF IT'S ORIGINAL SHEEN. IT LOOKS AS GOOD AS THE DAY IT WAS PRESSED. THERE ARE NO MARKS OR BLEMISHES ON THE SURFACE,AND IN DAYLIGHT IT LOOKS FLAWLESS, AND EVEN WHEN PUT UP TO INTENSE ILLUMINATION THERE IS NOTHING TO SEE APART FROM A COUPLE OF TINY TINY WISPS.AN ABSOLUTE MASTERPIECE

 

PLAYING THE RECORD

WE BELIEVE THAT IF YOU ARE GOING TO SPEND YOUR MONEY ON A FANTASTIC COLLECTIBLE VINYL, THAT YOU SHOULD BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR WHAT YOU ARE BUYING. WE HAVE THEREFORE INVESTED IN THE SOFTWARE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO DO JUST THAT.

WE HAVE RECORDED THE ENTIRE ALBUM FROM START TO FINISH 

PLEASE JUST TAKE A LISTEN TO THE QUALITY OF THIS VINYL AS IT WILL SAY FAR MORE THAN WE CAN PUT INTO WORDS. IT IS JUST INCREDIBLE TO THINK THAT AN ALBUM THAT WAS SO POPULAR AS THIS COULD BE FOUND IN A CONDITION THAT CAN ONLY BE DESCRIBED AS MINT MINUS

FROM THE SECOND THE STYLUS IS PLACED ONTO THE DISC UNTIL THE FINAL FADEOUT, THIS VINYL PERFORMS LIKE A BRAND NEW 1969 DISC. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DISTORTION TO THE SOUND, AND NO BACKGROUND CRACKLES AT ALL, ANYWHERE. CRISP CLEAR STEREO REPRODUCTION WITHOUT ANY IRRITANTS IS ALL YOU HEAR.

NO CLICKS  AND NO EMBEDDED  VINYL NOISE 

SUPERB AUDIO FROM START TO FINISH

THERE IS A SMALL QUIET PASSAGE ON TRACK ONE, SIDE TWO AND IN A FEW PASSAGES OF THIS I HEARD 4-5 TINY LITTLE  QUIET TICS. USING A MAGNIFYING GLASS I SPOTTED AN ALMOST INVISIBLE MINUSCILE MARK ON THIS TINY AREA

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT THIS INCREDIBLE DISC GRADES MINT MINUS FOR THE AUDIO

BUT MY ADVICE IS TO TAKE A GOOD LONG LISTEN AND JUDGE IT FOR YOURSELF

 

 

THE SLEEVE

HOW OFTEN IS A GREAT VINYL LET DOWN BY THE SLEEVE, AND NON MORESO THAN ZEPPELIN 2, WHERE IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND A SLEEVE THAT MATCHES THE QUALITY OF A MINT ALBUM. HERE THEN IS ONE OF THE BEST EXAMPLES OF THIS SLEEVE THAT WE HAVE EVER SEEN!!!


THE FRONT SURFACE IS IN SUPERB ORIGINAL CONDITION. THE REASON IS THAT THE SLEEVE HAS BEEN HOUSED INSIDE A PLASTIC OUTER SLEEVER FROM NEW


THE POWDERY BROWN SURFACE THAT USUALLY WEARS AND RUBS BADLY ON THIS SLEEVE IS PRISTINE AND UNWORN.EVEN DOWN TO THE PERIMIETR EDGES WHERE IT ALWAYS RUBS, THIS ONE IS UNIFORM ALL THE WAY ACROSS AND DOWN. 


ALSO THE WHITE AREA IS ALWAYS FOUND WITH SEVERE GRUBBINESS AND DIRT, WELL AGAIN HERE IS ONE THAT IS AS GOOD AS NEW. AGAIN THIS IS VIRTUALLY UNHEARD OF AND ALWAYS HAS FINGERMARKS AT BEST, BUT NOT IF IT WAS HOUSED FROM NEW AND PROTECTED FROM ALL ELEMENTS OF WEAR LIKE THIS ONE.


THERE ARE ABSOLUTELY NO PRESSURE LINES BY THE SPINE. NONE ON THE TOP EDGE, NONE ON THE BOTTOM EDGE, AND NO THUMB LINES NEAR THE OPENING EDGE


AN ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE EXAMPLE OF THE FRONT SURFACE OF THIS ICONIC ALBUM. MUSEUM QUALITY I WOULD GUARANTEE

BECAUSE OF THE PROTECTION AFFORDED IT, EVEN THE TOP AND BOTTOM EDGES ARE 99% UNRUBBED AND THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE!!


THE 1% CONSISTS OF A COUPLE OF PIN PRICKS OF WHITE SHOWING THROUGH, MAINLY ON THE FAR RIGHT CORNER TIPS


THE SPINE ON THIS SLEEVE IS USUALLY FOUND BATTERED, RUBBED, SQUASHED, AND WORN OUT, BUT ON THIS SLEEVE YOU HAVE A SPINE THAT IS JUST PERFECT IN EVERY WAY. 

FIRSTLY AND INCREDIBLY THE SPINE IS FLAT AND NOT PUSHED OVER LIKE MOST ARE. THERE ARE NO FINGER TO THUMB SQUASHES EITHER, AND ALL OF THE COLOURS HAVE BEEN RETAINED INCLUDING THE ENDS

ALL OF THE TYPEFACE IS PERFECTLY LEGIBLE. 


 THE OPENING EDGE IS STILL RAZOR SHARP,AND INCREDIBLY DOESN'T EVEN HAVE ANY OF THOSE TINY THUMB NAIL NICKS, DEMONSTRATING JUST HOW LITTLE THE VINYL HAS BEEN OUT OF THE SLEEVE.

 

THE REAR SURFACE LIKE THE FRONT HAS EVERY SINGLE SPECK OF THE BROWN SURFACE INTACT. IT'S ALSO WORTH MENTIONING THAT NEITHER THE FRONT OR THE BACK HAS ANY SIGN OF RING WEAR, OR EVEN RECORD SHAPE, WHICH AGAIN IS A RARITY ON THIS SLEEVE.

 

OPENING THE GATEFOLD REVEALS A PRISTINE PAIR OF INNER PANELS. ALL OF THE COLOURS ARE THERE AND THERE ARE NO MARKS OR STAINS ANYWHERE.HAS 'THE LEMON SONG' ON THE TRACK LISTING, AND PETER GRANT AS THE EXECUTIVE PRODUCER

 

THE ORIGINAL INNER SLEEVE IS INCLUDED, WITH THE FLIPBACKS AND POLY LINED INTERIOR. IT IS AS WHITE AND CLEAN AS I HAVE EVER SEEN ONE, AND FURTHER EVIDENCE THAT THIS VINYL HAS JUST REMAINED INSIDE THE SLEEVE FOR ALL THESE YEARS

 

THE SLEEVE GRADES MINT 

 

I'LL JUST FINSH BY SAYING THAT IN MY OPINION YOU COULD NEVER GET A BETTER AND MORE PRISTINE COPY OF THIS CLASSIC ALBUM AND SLEEVE ON THE PLANET, AND IT IS WITHOUT DOUBT VAULT CONDITION, AND WILL NEVER NEED UPGRADING, AND FOR SOME LUCKY WINNER THIS IS AN INVESTMENT AS IT CAN ONLY INCREASE IN VALUE, AND WHATEVER IS PAID FOR IT NOW WILL IN FUTURE SEEM A BARGAIN

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