Complete with original black white EMI advertising inner-sleeve.
CONDITION Disc Labels: NEAR MINT An exceptional set bearing no more than 2/3 faint spindle trails around the side 2 centre hole, but none at all on side 1.
Visual: EXCELLENT Both playing surfaces of this barely played example are perfectly clean and retain all of their as new deep-gloss factory shine.
Only upon close examination directly beneath power halogen light are some ultra-fine micro-hairlines revealed, but nothing more to suggest that this copy has been out of it s cover more than a couple of times.
Both sides of this high-quality pressing lie 100 flat on the turntable when playing.
Sound Quality: EXCELLENT Without doubt this pressing is THE best sounding source for this amazing album.
Showing virtually no signs of play, this fine sounding example plays with a power and energy missing form any other version of this album on any format.
Our careful play-check at volume detected no noticeable groove/play wear on any track.
Some light vinyl background static is detectable in quieter passages and between tracks but we have never come across a copy on which this feature was not present.
Indeed, apart from a few light ticks on Chapter 24 we did not find any other significiant audible distractions or faults on the entire LP.
Cover: EXCELLENT A highly respectable example with a super-clean, vibrant unscratched high-gloss front panel.
The only traces of wear to the front are a single thumbnail wrinkle near the opening edge a light wrinkle on Nick Mason s face and left arm.
There is minor bruising/wear to the tips of the upper corners but the lower ones are in great shape.
Apart from a single tiny push to the front opening edge, both are sharp and totally unworn.
The exposed rear panel is perfectly clean unblemished.
The only trace of previous ownership is the faint impression if the albums catalogue number which was once written on the upper flipback see below .
All flipbacks are in-place and unworn and both seams and the spine are in perfect condition.
