suggesting a mastering done at the London based Utopia facility, but revealing no engineer nor any pressing plant.
Condition: 2 x VG++ (Vinyls & labels)/VG+ (Cover):
Vinyls is bright and shiny - has next to signs of play or handling... a touch of sleeve scuffing and otherwise perfect - very close to mint - perfect labels.
Cover has minor vinyl outline - no wear... a little very superficial scuffing but hardly any creasing from edges... just a couple of ripples from opening corners inflicted by minor dents. Seams are intact with only minor discontunued rubbing except for a minor front panel top 2 - 3 cm's pressure point, very slightly pressurized but easily readable and intact spine, opening edges without rubbing. Spine corner areas are very slightly rubbed... still pointy though - opening corners has very slightly rubbed corner dents. All in all a nice VG+ cover.
