Vinyl has the generic silver company labels with black centre print and burgundy company name and 'tax man' logo at bottom label.
Labels has (B) print below publishing credits which along with handwritten 'EMW' trail off text and trumpet logo suggests that the album was mastered by A&M Mastering, Los Angeles, and subsequently pressed by Electrosound, Shelbyville, In., USA.
Vinyl is held in a picture cover.
Condition: VG++ (Vinyls and Labels)/VG+(+) (Cover):
Vinyl still retains its original lustre and has hardly any signs of play or handling... the very faintest sleeve wear and otherwise mint.
Labels has in the area of a handful simple and superficial spineletraces placed within the center ring - labels and vinyl in general are graded close to mint.
Cover is nice but has a small lower saw cut - otherwise just a marginal degree of superficial creasing, wrinkling from edges and corners rubbing - the saw cut inflicts a VG+ grading - cover is otherwise at least close to near mint.
