Allmusics Jim Newson writes that 'Alone Together' "... represents Dave Mason at his peak." and that the album features an "... excellent batch of melodically pleasing songs, built on a fat bed of strumming acoustic guitars with tasteful electric guitar accents and leads."
Vinyl has the generic lime and dark green company labels omitting the Boed EMI logo and with top right 'The Gramophone Co. Ltd....' rim text.
Vinyl has machine stamped matrix information:
Side 1: SHTC 251A-1, mother/stamper 1 T
Side 2: SHTC 251B-1, mother/stamper 1 CA
suggesting this copy to be m,anufactured from the first run of the master tape, the first set of fathers and mothers and ultimately early stampers.
Vinyl is housed in a generic era specific and polylined company add inner sleeve displaying other album of the era - ultimately in a 3-panel Garrod & Lofthoused fabricated picture cover with internal pocket for vinyl.
Condition: VG++ (Vinyl and Labels) VG+ (Cover):
Vinyl is bright and lustrous and does only display a very light degree of sleeve inflicted wear.
Labels are equally nice - only a very light degree of spindlewear in the very immediate vicinity of the center hole.
Vinyl is overall graded near mint.
Cover has a top cut-out hole - probably from being mailed out as a promotional copy - cover is otherwise extremely close to mint... you wull always be able to find the tiniest degree of rubbing against corners... but this cover is just absurdly close to mint apart from the cur out hole.
