Together with the original paper bag from 'The Record Centre' in Warrington, England.
Labels: NEAR MINT
Both are clean & bright with a handful of light spindle trails around the side 2 centre hole only. The two marks at the 5 & 7 o'clock positions on label 1 are small creases in the label's paper made during manufacture and are not scratches or damage.
Visual: NEAR MINT
Sparkling, deep-gloss playing surfaces which are clean & unworn - there are no scuffs or scratches anywhere. Apart from some harmless light marks from the inner-sleeve on side 2 beneath halogen light, there really is nothing to fault here.
Both sides of this gem lie 100% flat on the turntable when playing.
Sound Quality: MINT
Despite having been played a couple of times, the sound-quality on this example is truly flawless. Each track plays with a clarity and warmth unmatched by any other pressing of this album. Most copies of this edition suffer from groovewear on the two innermost tracks - 'Can't Buy Me Love' & 'I'll Be Back' especially - but this is not the case on this disc. There are also no clicks, pops, ticks or any other audible distraction on this truly unbeatable sounding copy which is guaranteed not to disappoint.

Although graded 'Near Mint', we don't think you will ever come across a more 'as new' looking example.
