Vinyl has the generic black and silver printed company labels with boxed integrated large fonted company name and cow logo - held in a gatefold picture cover with lyrics in inner spread.
Condition: VG+(+) (Vinyls and Labels)/VG++ (Inner Sleeve)/VG++ (Cover):
Vinyl is supershiny and has been used directly from the paper inner sleeve and has subsequently a light degree of sleeve wear - vinyl looks like it has been played a very few times - judging from the amount of dustcorns all wear on this copy could easily bee contributed to the friction between the sleeve and vinyl.
Labels has a light degree of spindlewear - a single simple one to side Side 1 label and a couple of more complex ones to Side 2 label - barely visible though.
Vinyl is overall graded close to near perfect/excellent and plays impeccable.
Cover only a couple of extremely minor imperfection - very, very close to mint - beautiful.
This is all in all a very neat condition record in an extremely nice condition cover - a very nice copy.
