EXCELLENT-(MINUS) - WOW IT’S A REALLY NICE COPY OF THE VINYL WITH THE ALL IMPORTANT UNCORRECTED MATRIX NUMBERS - I HAVE GONE FOR A CONSERVATIVE EXCELLENT-(MINUS) GRADE AS IT HAS JUSTA FEW FAINT WISPIES UNDER A VERY BRIGHT LIGHT. NOTHING SERIOUS AT ALL. IN FACT IN NORMAL DAYLIGHT YOU CAN REALLY ONLY MAKE OUT ONE VERY INSIGNIFICANT LIGHT SURFACE MARK ON TRACK ONE SIDE ONE. IT CANNOT BE FELT IT IS VERY LIGHT AND IT HAS NO IMPACT ON PLAY. MOST WOULD GRADE THIS AS STRAIGHT EXCELLENT.
AUDIO: FIRST THING TO MENTION IS IT PLAYS COMPLETELY FLAT ON THE TURNTABLE. BOTH RUN INS ARE VERY VERY QUIET, NOT SILENT BUT JUST A FEW VERY LIGHT STATIC CRACKLES WHICH I’M SURE WILL CLEAR WOTH A FEW PLAYS. NICE CRISP AUDIO THROUGHOUT ALL THE PASSAGES I PLAYED. THE QUIET INTRO TO“BABE I’M GONNA LEAVE YOU”IS REALLY NICE. ON THE B SIDE THE START OF“I CAN’T QUIT YOU BABY IS ALSO A GREAT PLAY PERHAPS JUST A FEW VERY LIGHT STATIC CRACKLES. THE AUDIO HERE GRADES AT LEAST EXCELLENT-(MINUS) IF NOT BETTER. THE ONLY REASON FOR THE MINUS IS VERY LIGHT STATIC CRACKLES WHICH ARE ONLY EVER HEARD IN VERY VERY QUIET PASSGES (WHICH THERE AREN’T MANY) AND BETWEEN TRACKS. THESE CRACKLES ARE VERY VERY LIGHT INDEED. I HEARD NO POPS, CLICKS OR ANYTHING INTRUSIVE AT ALL. IT’S A STUNNING RECORD AND REALLY THE ONLY WAY THIS RECORD SHOULD BE HEARD IS ON FIRST PRESS UK VINYL.
SLEEVE: EXCELLENT-(MINUS) - AGAIN BEING CONSERVATIVE HERE AND REALLY GIVING THEMINUS BECAUSE IT HAS A FEW CREASES ON THE AIRSHIP AND JUST A FEW CREASES AT THE TOP RIGHT CORNER. REALLY INSIGNIFICANT STUFF. THE HWITE BACKGROUND REMAINS VERY VERY WHITE. SOME VERY LIGHT EDGE AND CORNER WEAR. A VERY NICE EXAMPLE OF INDEED.
SPINE: EXCELLENT - FULLY READABLE A FEW CREASES
ALL RECORDS ARE VISUALLY GRADED ONLY - UNLESS STATED IN THE DESCRIPTION
ALWAYS HAPPY TO OFFER GREAT DEALS ON POSTAGE FOR MULTIPLE PURCHASES ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.
UK RECORD COLLECTOR Grading System. (Not USA Goldmine)
I may use a (+) or (-) to more closely guide where I think the grading sits within each category below.
MINT:The record itself is in brand new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. The cover and any extra items such as the lyric sheet, booklet or poster are in perfect condition. Records advertised as Sealed or Unplayed should be Mint.
EXCELLENT:The record shows some signs of having been played, but there is very little lessening in sound quality. The cover and packaging might have slight wear and/or creasing.VERY GOOD:The record has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticeable surface marks and the occasional light scratch. Normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items, without any major defects, is acceptable.
GOOD:The record has been played so much that the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and mild scratches. The cover and contents suffer from folding, scuffing of edges, spine splits, discoloration, etc.
FAIR:The record is still just playable but has not been cared for properly and displays considerable surface noise; it may even jump.The cover and contents will be torn, stained and/or defaced.
POOR:The record will not play properly due to scratches, bad surface noise, etc. The cover and contents will be badly damaged or partly missing.
BAD:The record is unplayable or might even be broken, and is only of use as a collection-filler.
