Additional infoOriginal 1981 US Capitol label 10-track LP - San Francisco based power pop orientated arena rock septets - known for their outrageous stage dynamics - first album on the Capitol coorporate reality. 'Completion' is satirically based on a corporate motivational training record and includes a includes a couple of more new waveish tracks - slick production by David Forster.

Vinyl has the generic dark burgundy company labels with silver printing and large top 'dome' logo - housed in an illustrated inner sleeve, ultimately in a picture cover.

Condition: VG++ (Vinyl and Labels)/VG++ (Inner Sleeve)/VG++ (Cover):
Vinyl is bright and shiny - has hardly any signs of play. Labels are plain mint and vinyl is overall graded close to mint.

Inner sleeve has a small mid-lower split but is otherwise extremely nice - graded close to near mint/excellent.
Picture cover is still in its original shrink wrapping - has a touch of rubbing to and against lower opening corners but is otherwise perfect - graded near mint - not a rare album, nor this nice often though.
