CONDITION – PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:

The gradations of condition I use are as follows: MINT, Near-Mint, Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair, Poor.

The condition of the jacket is VERY GOOD. There is bumping/wear at corners, as well as shelfwear and some ringwear to the rear panel. However, there are no seamsplits, owners’ markings, or other defects, and the jacket remains solid, bright, and very attractive – overall, a very good collector's copy.

The condition of the LP is VERY GOOD. Although there is light surface noise throughout, in general the playback remains quite fine. However, those wanting a flawless or near-MINT copy are kindly advised to look elsewhere. Overall, this rates as a very good collector's copy.
