VG+ All four corners are still sharp and showing very littlewear. Seams are beautiful. The title is fully visible and easy to read on the spine. I try to be very strict in my quality grading, and markedthis down to VG+ as there are faint marks indicating light ring wear on the frontcover only. As you can see in the photo, this is minimal, but still worthcalling out. It is most visible from5:30-6:30 and 2:00-3:00 if on a clock face. There is some less visible ring war from 10:00–1:00. The back of jacket is beautiful with no yellowing from age. There is onesmall blemish in the continuity of the white paper border about 1.5 inches up from bottom rightcorner. I’m assuming this imperfectionoccurred in the printing/manufacturing process as it was sealed until posting.
Overall: Beautiful Record in Fantastic Condition! Thisrecord has been properly stored for many, many years. It was only removed from original shrink-wrap today (4/1/2018) inorder to record Stamper #s (2s/6s) in the dead wax. The LP has never been played. It was pulled ½ way out of the jacket forphoto only. I have a second “well loved”copy of this and never tire of listening to it. The emotional depth in these two pieces is staggering, but if you are looking at this posting, you are already well aware of this!
This record comes from my personal library. I am a music lover& collector, NOT a dealer or bulk seller. I am auctioning off a fewchoice pieces, as I have run out of storage space. Themajority of the items that I sell are duplicate copies looking for a goodhome. Please enjoy the music with your friends and loved ones!!
