Up for auction is an extremely rare original 1991 first US pressing of this groundbreaking album. This is the real deal. Only the first US pressings have the MASTERDISK inscription on the dead wax (PLEASE SEE SECOND PHOTO). Visually, the vinyl is in EX condition with only minor hairlines from the inner sleeve that can only be seen under strong light. The vinyl play grades EX to NM- with only some faint surface noise between tracks and some very sporadic minor clicks that are barely audible due to the heaviness of the tracks. One would be very hard pressed to find an original copy of this lp that looks and sounds better than this one. The cover and inner sleeve are in EX condition (PLEASE SEE PHOTOS).
