Disc 1. VERY GOOD +  Disc 2: EXCELLENT +

Both discs are clean & glossy with some light surface marks (not scratches) on disc 1. Disc 2 is unmarked in strong daylight, showing only a few harmless wispy paper hairlines beneath halogen light.

Audio: MINT -

You'll know, if you've been looking for one, a decent sounding mono 'White Album' is very hard to find. Although not perfect visually, the sound quality throughout both discs in this set is truly 1st-class. All tracks play cleanly & clearly and are free from any crackle, groove/playwear and have no clicks, ticks or other such audible distractions. You won't be disappointed with the audio on this set.

Cover: VERY GOOD +

A respectable clean & strong example with a low-ish front cover number. Both front & rear panel are glossy with light storage rubbing and a tiny spot on the front. There is also an unavoidable light disc impression but the unique stamped number is bold & unworn. There is some minor wear to the opening edges and lower corners but no issues inside the gatefold. The spine laminate has split a little but it is clean and both sets of wording are readable. All seams are smooth & fully intact.

Poster: VERY GOOD +

Light handling wear only, no tears.

Photo protector sheet: EXCELLENT

Light storage wrinkles.


Minor creasing to some corners.

Inner-sleeves: EXCELLENT

Clean & flat with some light wrinkles from storage but no tears or seam splits.
