|Additional info||Scarce Original 1977 UK Capitol label 2-track 12" Single featuring 'Showroom Dummies' and 'Europe Endless' - taken from Kraftwerks minimalistic, mechanized, left-field masterpiece, 'Trans-Europe Express'.|
Vinyl has the generic black printed, orange company labels with lower large fonted 'Capitol' text ion olive - housed in a unique rounded corners picture cover.
Condition: VG++ (vinyl and Labels)/VG+ (Cover):
Vinyl has a touch of shading - hardly any sleeve inflicted wear.
Both labels has a single or two light simple and superficial spindletraces - graded near mint.
Vinyl is overall graded near mint.
Cover has a touch of vinyl outline, a little light corners wrinkling, a little lower seam dent - and a right back spill leaving a little discolouration formed as the top of a rektangle - graded straight VG+ - still a way above average and nice copy of this hard to get proto-techno-electro gem.
