Sleeve: NM with practically no visible wear to any surface, excepting small section of discoloration on the bottom of the back, a line of writing in blue pen with a "January 31, 1961" date and two track timings written in, and a "review copy" stamp above the title on the back cover.
Record: side 1 - NM with exceptionally minor scuffing in one section from being pulled out of the sleeve; side 2 - NM with no visible wear, perhaps never played.
I am a university professor of music here in the US
who inherited this and other records from a collector a few years back. I am
looking to sell off some of these records to collectors/audiophiles who can get
more enjoyment out of them than I can.
Thanks for looking.
