Housed in a rarer front laminated, tri-flipback 'Ernest J. Day' printed mono cover with the earliest darker/grainier image and 'You Really Gotta Hold On Me' rear track-listing spelling.
Complete with its original poly-lined 'Use Emitex..' inner-sleeve.
A perfect pair with no spindle marks or wear to either label.
Hard to believe, but this 57 year-old disc looks like it just came off the press. It is visually flawless both in strong daylight AND directly beneath halogen light. You won't find better.
Sounds as good as it looks - perfect!
Cover: MINT -
A real work of art in this condition. These 'Ernest J. Day' covers were both superior in look and feel and finding one in this condition is extremely rare.
The iconic front panel is clean and free from any 'thumbnails'. There is minor storagewear in the form of slight rubbing and a faint disc impression to the laminate. The corners and opening edges are in great shape. The easily blemished rear panel is clean & white, again with just a hint of storage but no marks, writing or missing paper. All of the delicate flipbacks are clean in-place and both seams and the spine are tight & unworn.
Inner-sleeve: MINT -
As good as these delicate components get.
