SOMEONE WHO WAS
VERY HIGH UP IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS BACK IN THE LATE 1960s & EARLY
1970s!!!! ALL OF HIS RECORDS WERE RECIEVED DIRECT FROM THE FACTORY AND
STORED OUT OF THE LIGHT (VERTICALLY IN CLOSED BOXES!) AND REMAINED IN
PLASTIC SLEEVES SINCE NEW!!!! ALL WERE COMPLETELY UNPLAYED, OR HAD ONLY
HAD ONE OR TWO PLAYS ONLY!!!! AS A RESULT THIS RECORD HAS REMAINED IN
AMAZING CONDITION - AS IT HASNT SEEN THE LIGHT OF DAY SINCE THE YEAR IT
WAS MADE!!!! AND IN THIS LPs CASE - INCREDIBLY, THE RECORD HAS ONLY
EVER BEEN PLAYED TWICE (AND IS IN AMAZING CONDITION!), AND
THE GATEFOLD COVER IS ABSOLUTELY AWESOME (EASILY THE BEST I HAVE EVER SEEN!)!!!! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE

The record labels are in SUPERB condition (see pictures) with NO
wear, NO writing, and barely ANY spindle marks AT ALL!!!! IT IS VERY
CLEAR THAT THIS RECORD HAS ONLY EVER BEEN PLAYED ONCE OR TWICE AT THE VERY MOST!!!! The vinyl is
in AWESOME condition!!!! Most of these 60s/70s LPs had been to a lot of
wild parties and are usually found totally worn out, and almost
unplayable. This one is NOT and has NO scratches, NO hairlines, NO
scufflines, only 2 or 3 absolutely ULTRA light TINY surface traces, and only a VERY
few of the lightest paper scuffs only visible under light!!!! ITS AS
SIMPLE AS THAT!!!! THE RECORD STILL RETAINS ITS ORIGINAL 'JUST PRESSED'

sticking, NO jumps, and barely ANY crackle AT ALL!!!! The sound quality
is simply SUPERB with NO distortion and NO groovewear either!!!! The
record must grade MINT(Minus)!!!! AWESOME RECORD!!!!
Believe me this record is NOT overgraded in ANY way!!!! I use STRICT RC
grading standards - it is not in my interest not to!!!! Brillant!!!!
The record also comes in its ORIGINAL 1st Press Black 'Poly-lined' inner
sleeve - which is 100% solid, has NO edge splits, and is still FULLY 'poly-lined'!!!! However, the black inner is bit creased, and would definitely benefit from an upgrade. The 1st Press Gatefold Cover is in absolutely AWESOME condition - and easily the VERY best I have EVER seen!!!!
It has NO sticker tears, NO sticker marks, NO edge wear (SUPERB flat & straight unworn edges!), NO spinal wear (PERFECT unworn vertical spine, with PERFECT side words!), NO splits, barely ANY corner wear AT ALL (virtually ZERO - and STUNNING square shape to ALL corners!), NO ringwear, NO RUBBING AT ALL, barely ANY creases AT ALL (virtually NONE and cover is PERFECTLY flat looking!), only 1 absolutely TINY (2 or 3 mms ONLY!) stained indentation at the VERY bottom of the cover back (almost INVISIBLE!), NO annotations, and NO writing!!!! The opening
edge is beautifully straight with barely ANY feathering AT
ALL!!!! And even the inside of the cover is in AWESOME condition with NO rubbing, NO grubbyness, NO yellowing, and NO
writing!!!! The cover must grade Excellent++++ if not MINT(Minus)!!!! AWESOME COVER!!!! THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE
