Thick and inflexible 180 gram vinyl has custom picture labels - includes illustrated lyric insert - sturdy gatefold picture cover.
Condition: VG (Vinyl and Labels)/VG++ (Insert)/VG+ (Cover):
Vinyl has a great presence - thick and inflexible and with a fine shine - has a quite a few fine, light and superficial surface marks along with a couple of not so light marks which inflicts a couple of clicks in two tracks - otherwise a great sounding record with only a little light noise in the beginning of both sides - before the music sets in.
Labels has only a little wear near the center hole, but otherwise looks great.
Insert is almost perfect - cover has superb front and back cover centers with only very light degree of creasing and wear - only affecting the shine - not actually penetrating the cover.
Seams are firm - cover has light discontinued wear along right seam-edge - spine- and lower corners are dented, lower corners lightly rubbed - overall a very nice cover though - graded straight VG+.
