THE RECORDS
 
THE LABELS
THE  LABELS ARE IN PRISTINE CONDITION. BOTH BASE COLOURS ARE IMMACULATE AND UNWORN. GLORIOUS DEEP RICH COLOUR THAT STRETCHES FULLY INTO THE UNWORN SPINDLE HOLE. A DETAILED EXAMINATION OF THE SPINDLE HOLE REVEALS JUST 2-3 MICROSCOPIC SPIDER LINES, SHOWING WHY THIS VINYL IS IN THE SUPERB CONDITION THAT IT IS. AND EVEN THEN I HAD TO USE A MAGNIFYING GLASS TO PROPERLY SEE THEM
THE VINYL
THE VINYL GLEAMS LIKE A POLISHED MIRROR AND IN DAYLIGHT LOOKS FLAWLESS, AND EVEN UNDER INTENSE ILLUMINATION THERE ARE JUST SOME VERY FINE WISPY SLEEVE WITHDRAWAL HAIRLINES 
PLAYING THE RECORD
I BELIEVE THAT IF YOU ARE GOING TO SPEND YOUR MONEY ON A FANTASTIC COLLECTABLE VINYL, THAT YOU SHOULD BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR WHAT YOU ARE BUYING. I HAVE THEREFORE INVESTED IN THE SOFTWARE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO DO JUST THAT.
I HAVE RECORDED THE ENTIRE ALBUM FROM START TO FINISH AS I AM NOW DOING WITH ALL MY LISTINGS, AS I AM CONVINCED THAT BIDDERS WOULD LOVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE ABLE TO HEAR THE RECORD BEFORE LAYING A BID. THIS IS A SERVICE I AM DELIGHTED TO BE ABLE TO OFFER MY CUSTOMERS.
THE ONLY TINY BLEMISH TO THIS INCREDIBLE AUDIO PERFORMANCE OCCURS  NEAR THE END OF TRACK TWO (SIDE oNE) WHERE THERE ARE THREE TINY ROTATIONAL TICS - CAUSED BY A VERY TINY AND ALMOST INVISIBLE MARK ON THE VINYL
OTHER THAN THIS VERY SMALL UNWANTED NOISE THE REST OF THE LP PLAYS TO A MAGNIFICENT STANDARD
WOULD BE WELL WORTH A LISTEN SO THAT YOU CAN HEAR FOR YOURSELF JUST HOW CLEAN THIS VINYL IS
THE STEREO REPRODUCTION OF THIS FIRST PRESS IS BOTH CRYSTAL CLEAR AND LOUDLY MIXED
THE STEREO REPRODUCTION REALLY CANNOT BE FAULTED AND EVERY NOTE IS HEARD EXACTLY HOW IT WAS INTENDED
THERE IS NOT A JOT OF BACKGROUND CRACKLE WHATSOEVER, AND NO LOUD CLICKS
NO EMBEDDED VINYL NOISE WHATSOEVER, A REALLY CLEAN SOUND ALL THE WAY THROUGH BOTH SIDES
ALL YOU MAY HEAR IS THE VERY ODD SEMI SECOND OF BARELY AUDIBLE STATIC IN JUST A COUPLE OF RANDOM SILENT PASSAGES
I HEARD ABSOLUTELY NO DUST POPS WHATSOEVER
I AM MORE THAN HAPPY TO GRADE THIS VINYL NEAR MINT VISUALLY AND A SIMILAR GRADE FOR SIDE ONE WITH THE SIDE TWO PERFORMANCE AT MINT MINUS
BUT BECAUSE I HAVE RECORDED THE ENTIRE ALBUM, YOU DON'T HAVE TO JUST TAKE MY WORD FOR IT. PLEASE TAKE A LISTEN AND JUDGE FOR YOURSELF AGAINST YOUR OWN PERSONAL STANDARDS
 
 
 
THE SLEEVE
 
NON LAMINATED AND DELICATE TRI-FOLD SLEEVE . THIS IS SUCH A HARD SLEEVE TO FIND IN THIS SORT OF CONDITION. THE FACT THAT IT IS UN-LAMINATED USUALLY ASSURES THE SEVERE COLOUR LOSS TO THE DELICATE SURFACE. BUT HERE WE HAVE AN ABSOLUTELY SUPERB EXAMPLE
THE FRONT SURFACE IS FLAT AND TOTALLY CLEAN. THERE IS NOT ONE MARK ON IT ANYWHERE, NO STAINS THAT YOU MIGHT ASSOCIATE WITH A NON LAMINATED SLEEVE OF THIS ERA, PLUS THE COLOURS ARE STILL RICH AND VIBRANT
THERE IS NO RING WEAR WHATSOEVER ON ANY PART OF THE SLEEVE, NOT EVEN ANY RECORD SHAPE
JUST A COUPLE OF TINY PRESSURE LINES BY THE SPINE, A FEW ALONG THE TOP EDGE, AND A FEW  ALONG THE BOTTOM EDGE, AND NO THUMB LINES CLOSE TO THE OPENING EDGE
THE EDGES DO HAVE A LITTLE RUB AS MIGHT BE EXPECTED
THE SPINE HAS A LITTLE EDGE RUB ON THE TOP LEADING SURFACE, AND SOME AT THE TOP AND BOTTOM ENDS
THE OPENING EDGE IS JUST RAZOR SHARP AND LOOKING AS GOOD AS THE DAY IT WAS PRINTED AND PUT TOGETHER. PROOF THAT THE LP HAS JUST NOT BEEN OUT OF THE SLEEVE VERY OFTEN
THE REAR SURFACE IS ALSO IN A SUPERB CONDITION, DEEP RICH UNRUBBED COLOURS
OPENING THE TRI-FOLD REVEALS THREE NICE AND CLEAN PANELS WITH JUST SOME LIGHT EDGE GREYING IN PARTS
THE INNER SLEEVE IS THE ORIGINAL BLACK DIE CUT INNER WHICH AS NO SEAM SPLITS, A LITTLE CORNER WRINKLING AND A NICK ON THE TOP EDGE
A VERY CLEAN 1971 HOWARDS SLEEVE TO MATCH THE DISC
 
GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR BID IF YOU CHOSE TO GO FOR IT
