Vinyl has the generic orange company labels with left label vertical, white, large fonted and outline RCA text and lower label 'Quadraphonic' logo-text.
"QuadraDisc" was RCA Records' quadrophonic sound series - quadraphonic vinyl is fully compatible with conventional stereo systems - the records are rare as the format only was manufactured for a limited period in small quantities.
Quadrophonic records are sought after as they features a unique mixes of albums normally only mixed for stereo sound.
Vinyl is housed in a black flipback inner sleeve - accompanied by fold out insert and presented in a back pasted, single pocket picture cover with black front border and top 'Quadradisc' logo.
Condition: VG++ (Vinyl and Labels)/VG++ (Insert)/VG++ (Inner Sleeve)/VG++ (Cover):
Vinyl has hardly any signs of play or handling - a very few fine and ultralight sleeve lines are all - otherwise mint.
Labels are without signs of play or handling - plain mint.
Insert has almost no signs of handling and is easily graded near mint - cover is still in its original - slightly torn shrink wrapping - mint except for a touch of corners and opening edge rubbing - next to nothing and overall easily graded near mint.
This release of 'Volunteers' is a scarce album - to find it in this condition is simply rare.
