Vinyl has the generic beige company DJ promotional labels with top purple handwritten, fat, capital lettering company name - next to stylized girls head logo.
All label text is in black printing with mid-right label 'Disc jockey record NOT FOR SALE' text just above catalogue number.
Vinyl is housed in a back pasted picture cover, which has handwritten radio station and release date info on front and back. Front cover displays a top left 'MONO' sticker and a top right oval orange and black 'DJ' sticker.
Condition: VG+ (Vinyl and Labels/VG (Cover):
Vinyl is bright and shiny - has ca 4 inaudible surface lines or scuffs paired with a very light degree of sleeve inflicted wear.
Side 2 label has a single, simple and superficial spindletrace - obviously not an album played more than a couple of times, but not care very well for when so - a typical Radio DJ copy.
Cover has handwritten info in large faded black felt pen on front and back - as is tobe exected from a Radio Station copy. Cover is otherwise nice with a little ringwear, minor top seam and top opening corner dents - and a more pronounced lower opening corner dent.
Seams are intact and has only very marginal rubbing top opening edges - overall a very nice VG cover.
