I AM HAVING A SMALL LISTING BREAK BETWEEN CHRISTMAS AND THE NEW YEAR BUT LEAVING THIS INCREDIBLE COLLECTIBLE UP FOR GRABS OVER THE FESTIVE PERIOD.


THE RECORDS
THE LABELS
THE MATT BLACK LABELS ARE IN MAGNIFICENT CONDITION. THE BLACK BASE COLOUR FULLY STRETCHES INTO THE UNWORN SPINDLE HOLES.
THE SILVER LOGO'S AND TYPEFACE WHICH IS OFTEN FOUND RUBBED AWAY IS IN PERFECT CONDITION ON BOTH DISCS, WITH EACH LETTER OF THE TYPEFACE PERFECTLY LEGIBLE
THERE IS ONLY ONE TINY VISIBLE SPIDER LINE NEXT TO THE SPINDLE HOLES, AND IT'S MY BELIEF THAT THIS SET HAS ONLY HAD THE ONE VERY CAREFUL PLAY FROM NEW. THERE ARE STILL RESIDUAL SHARDS OF VINYL HANGING FROM THE SPINDLE HOLE
TO FIND THIS LP SET IN THIS VIRTUAL UNPLAYED CONDITION IS JUST IMPOSSIBLE THESE DAYS. BUT HERE IS THE MOST AMAZING COLLECTIBLE SET I HAVE EVER HAD THE PLEASURE TO MAKE AVAILABLE
THE VINYL
BOTH VINYLS ARE IN SUPERB CONDITION. THEY GLEAM LIKE THEY WERE JUST PRESSED AND THERE IS NO FOGGING OR ANY MARKS ON EITHER OF THE ALBUMS.THEY LOOK FLAWLESS IN DAYLIGHT.
EVEN WHEN PLACED UNDER INTENSE ILLUMINATION THERE IS NOTHING TO SEE APART FROM JUST A COUPLE OF WISPY HAIRLINES. THEY ARE BOTH OUTSTANDING DISCS
THERE IS ONE TINY HANDLING LINE ON THE OUTER RIM OF SIDE ONE
I 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. I HAVE THEREFORE INVESTED IN THE SOFTWARE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO DO JUST THAT.
I HAVE RECORDEDTHE ENTIRE LP SET FROM START TO FINISH AS I DO WITH ALL MY LISTINGS, AS I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT BIDDERS WOULD LOVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE ABLE TO HEAR THE RECORDS BEFORE LAYING A BID.
THIS IS A SERVICE I AM DELIGHTED TO BE ABLE TO OFFER MY CUSTOMERS
I HOPE YOU AGREE THAT THE REPRODUCTION FROM THIS SET IS JUST BRILLIANT. BOTH DISCS PLAY MAGNIFICENTLY ALL THE WAY THROUGH. TRYING TO FIND A GREAT COPY OF THIS ALBUM IS VERY HARD AS IT WAS A VERY POPULAR LP IN IT'S DAY AND MOST COPIES ARE TRASHED WITH SLEEVES TO MATCH. HERE WE HAVE WHAT I CAN ONLY DESCRIBE AS A NEAR FAULTLESS PERFORMANCE.
THE FIRST THING TO NOTE IS THAT THE SOUND IS DISTORTION FREE APART FROM THE GUITAR WORK THAT SHOULD SOUND DISTORTED OF COURSE. THIS SHOWS THAT THE LP'S WERE PLAYED ON A SYSTEM THAT HAD A CORRECTLY TRACKED STYLUS, AND ONE THAT WASN'T DAMAGED EITHER.
THERE IS A TINY HANDLING MARK RIGHT ON THE EDGE OF SIDE ONE WHICH CAUSES ABOUT TEN TINY LITTLE MUFFLED TICS DURING THE ELECTRONIC PASSAGE BEFORE THE MUSIC STARTS ON SIDE ONE, AND REALLY THIS IS THE ONLY MINOR FLAW ON ALL FOUR SIDES OF THE VINYL
THERE IS NO BACKGROUND CRACKLE WHATSOEVER, AND NO LOUD CLICKS EITHER
THERE IS THE VERY ODD LIGHT SPECK OF BARELY AUDIBLE STATIC IN A FEW OF THE MOST SILENT PASSAGES
I HEARD NO MORE THAN 2-3 TINY DUST POPS THROUGH THE WHOLE PLAYTHROUGH
I HAVE NO HESITATION IN GRADING THiS BEAUTIFUL VINYL SET MINT MINUS!!!
THE SLEEVE
SUPERB E.J DAY AND CO LAMINATED GATEFOLD
THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST EXAMPLES OF THIS SLEEVE I HAVE EVER COME ACROSS AND FULLY JUSTIFIES THE MINT MINUS GRADE
THE FRONT SURFACE IS FLAT AND CLEAN AND JUST GLEAMS LIKE A MIRROR. THERE ARE NO HEAVY CREASES, NO CREASE LINES, NO BENDS, AND ABSOLUTELY NO RING WEAR OR EVEN MILD RECORD SHAPE. .
THEREIS JUST ONETINY LAMINATE LINE CLOSE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SPINE.TWO MICROSCOPIC ONES ON THE VERY TOP EDGE, AND ONE EQUALLY TINY ON THE BOTTOM EDGE. NO THUMB LINES WHATSOEVER!!!
THE TOP AND BOTTOM EDGES ARE TOTALLY FREE FROM ANY SHELF WEAR WHATSOEVER, AND THIS IS DUE TO THE SLEEVE RESIDING INSIDE A PLASTIC OUTER SINCE THE DAY OF RELEASE. THE LAMINATE IS PERFECT ALL THE WAY ACROSS BOTH SURFACES WITH ONLY A PIN PRICK OF WHITE VISIBLE ON THE TOP AND BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER TIP ENDS
THE SPINE IS PERFECT. ALL OF THE LAMINATE IS PERFECTLY INTACT. THERE IS NO SHELF WEAR WHATSOEVER, AND NO LAMINATE PEEL OR FLAKE. TOTALLY FLAT AND UNSQUASHED
THE TWO OPENING EDGES ARE AS SHARP AS THEY POSSIBLE COULD BE,.THE SLEEVE HAS BEENCLEARLY HANDLED WITH EXTREME CARE WHEN REMOVING THE RECORDSFROM THE SLEEVE.
THE REAR SURFACE IS VIRTUALLY AS MAGNIFICENT AS THE FRONT WITH TWO REALLY SMALL LAMINATE LINES CLOSE TO THE SPINE. ONE ON THE TOP EDGE, TWO ON THE BOTTOM EDGE AND ONE VERY MILD THUMB LINE CLOSE TO THE OPENING EDGE. THERE IS ALSO A LIGHT SCRATCH LINE DOWN THE MIDDLE.
OPENING THE GATEFOLD REVEALS A FULLY LAMINATED AND GLOSSY PAIR OF PANELS WHICH ARE AS IMMACULATE AS THE REST OF THIS SLEEVE.WITH JUST ONE LAMINATE LINE ON THE RIGHT EDGE NEAR THE BOTTOM.
THE BLUE TEXT IS RICH AND VIBRANT AND THE LARGE PHOTOS ARE JUST PERFECT AND TOTALLY UNBLEMISHED
THE TWO POLYLINED INNER SLEEVES ARE FLAT AND CLEAN AND BARELY HAVE A CREASE LINE ON THEM.THEY ARE BOTH STILL VERY WHITE WITH SOME LIGHT AGEING TO THE EDGES, AND A LITTLE FOXING TO THE SURFACES.THEY ARE BOTH FREE FROM ANY SPLITS
A TRULY EXCEPTIONAL EXAMPLE OF THIS CLASSIC SLEEVE AND I BELIEVE FULLY JUSTIFIES A MINT MINUS GRADE!!!!
AN INCREDIBLE FINAL UPGRADE COPY IN THE MOST AMAZING CONDITION
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR BID IF YOU CHOSE TO GO FOR IT
