Condition: VG++ (Vinyl and Labels)/VG++ (Cover):
Vinyl is bright and shiny - has a touch of sleeve wear, but by far nothing inflicted by a needle. Labels has a light degree of spindletraces - very slightly scattered within the centre ring - vinyl is overall graded near mint.

Cover is nice - has a touch of edge wrinkling and pressure to seams - almost no corners rubbing and otherwise mint - graded straight near mint.
