Condition: VG++ (Vinyl and Labels)/M- (Cover):
Vinyl still retains its original high lustre - looks virtually new and unused at first glance - vinyl has a very marginal level of sleeve wear under a more thorough examination - next to nothing.
Labels has one or two barely visible spindlemarks within the vicinity of the centre ring - this is obviously an album played little and care for when so. Vinyl is easily graded close to perfect.
Cover is still in its original shrink wrapping - both front and back are in perfect condiiton - front with deep and fresh colours, and absolutely no age discolouration to back what so ever - just plain white with black printing. Please note that the crease along mid-lower spine on the picture is in the shrink wrapping only. Cover has perfect seams and corners - perfect sticker - cover is in astonishing perfect condition.
