Condition: VG+(+) (vinyl & labels)/VG+ (Cover):
Vinyl is bright and shiny - has a touch of sleeve inflicted Wear only - NeXT to nothing. Labels has 2 - 3 simple, superficial and light spindletraces placed within the center ring - vinyl is graded near mint.
Cover has a handwritten name in the lower right back corner and a touch of fwear along top-front vinyl outline.
