|Stock list||Bruce Springsteen|
|Additional info||1987 Filippines CBS label 11-track LP - Springsteen 8th studio album - far away from the thoughtful, tough, mainstream areana rock & roll anthems of "Born In The USA" - lyrically "an unsettled and unsettling collection of hard looks at the perils of commitment." and musically "... a varied, modestly scaled, modern-sounding pop album" which "simpler sound is perfectly suited to the more intimate stories Springsteen is telling."* |
Vinyl has the generic company sunburst labels stating "Manufactured In The Philippines By..." - complete with illustrated lyric insert - picture cover which has 'Pari Approved Member' text.
Condition: VG++ (Vinyl and Labels)/VG++ (Insert)/VG+ (Cover):
Vinyl is bright and shiny - has hardly any signs of play or handling - rudimentary labels have only a single light, supeficial, small and simple spindletrace - otherwise no signs of play or handling. Vinyl is graded straight near mint.
Insert has a single pressure mark - otherwise mint - extremely nice when you consider the thin and flimsy paper stock used.
Cover very little wear - a little top front creasing - very marginal folds from gluing cover slicks to the cardboard base as it is common with covers pressed in the Phillippines.
Cover has a little wear towards lower seam extremities - by far marginal imperfections - nothing really affecting the experience of the cover - a very nicely preserved cover - graded at least straight VG+.
