Item Description

Ever see a copy of The Doors' debut LP in mono in spot-on stunning near mint condition? Do you want to see one in person? Here's your chance to own one. Call it an early Christmas present to yourself, because when you see this copy, you're going to change your mind about giving it away.

Not kidding, the vinyl looks like you took a bus back to 1967 and just came back with it. Gorgeous near mint condition, the grooves shine like a mirror with NO manufacturing defects. The disc looks as though it were just pressed. Be forewarned, the playback on both sides does have surface noise. As the album has been in storage for a couple decades, the vinyl could benefit from a VPI cleaning. The playing surface is completely free from dust and fingerprints, however it needs to be remoisturized. And anyone with a VPI cleaner can tell you what the difference will be.

The labels are sharp and clear. There is absolutely NO writing, dirtwear, stickers, fingerprints, not so much as the smallest spindle mark. Completely clean labels on both sides.

The cover shows moderate ringwear. I brightened and sharpened the photos to give you as accurate a picture as possible where the damage is, however, the cover won't be nearly as bad. Please be aware that the images are exaggerated. All the seams are strong with no sign of even being about to split. There is shelf wear to the bottom seam and some text on the spine is wearing off. Overall though, a good, sturdy cover with some wear.

The original company inner sleeve from Elektra is present. It lies flat and is razor-sharp. However, at the bottom of one side, there are some stray some ink blotches and foxing present.

Note: I just realized that the dust in the vinyl photos is from my lens cap, not the vinyl itself. You can tell from the red spec on both sides in the same location. Sorry 'bout that!
