THE RECORD
 
THE LABELS
THE ISLAND  LABELS ARE IN PRISTINE CONDITION. 
THERE IS NOT ONE BLEMISH ON THEM AND THE COLOUR FULLY STRETCHES INTO THE UNWORN SPINDLE HOLE. 
THE SPINDLE HOLE SHOWS JUST 1-2 SPIDER LINES, SHOWING JUST HOW LITTLE THIS LP HAS BEEN NEAR A TURNTABLE
THE VINYL
THE VINYL HAS RETAINED ALL OF THE ORIGINAL LUSTRE AND SHEEN AND IN DAYLIGHT  LOOKS ABSOLUTELY MINT. 
EVEN WHEN PLACED UNDER INTENSE ILLUMINATION THERE ARE JUST A COUPLE OF  TINY WISPY HAIRLINES VISIBLE
AN OUTSTANDING EXAMPLE
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 DOUBLE LP FROM START TO FINISH AS I DO NOW WITH ALL MY LISTINGS AS I FIRMLY BELIEVE 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
THIS VINYL PLAYS WITHOUT ANY BACKGROUND CRACKLE WHATSOEVER, AND IS JUST STUNNING
NO DISTORTION AT ANY POINT TO THE STEREO REPRODUCTION, SO NO GROOVE WEAR
NO EMBEDDED VINYL NOISE 
A CLEAR , AND LOUD STEREO REPRODUCTION WHICH IS TRULY MAGNIFICENT
THERE CANNOT BE A BETTER QUALITY EXAMPLE OF THIS ANYWHERE
I HEARD ONLY A COUPLE OF RANDOM SPLIT SECONDS OF STATIC IN A LINKING GROOVE OR TWO AND A COUPLE OF TINY AND INSIGNIFICANT DUST TICS
THE LP JUST HASN'T BEEN PLAYED  MUCH AND HAS A REMARKABLE AUDIO PERFORMANCE WITH I AM DELIGHTED TO GRADE AS MINT MINUS
