The first thing to note is that this vinyl has just had minimal play only. On initial inspection the vinyl looks superbe, importantly this is the original thick ,heavy and chunky slab of vinyl. Any marks that could possibly be seen in strong light would be light whyspy sleeve removal scuffs and just very few light whyspy scratches only , at least non that cause any loud clicks or pops on my systems.
The audio is stunning cristal clear and vibrant throughout without any signs of grooveware or that this has been over played at all. There is some light isolated static\crackle ticks only heard in minor quiet places only and nothing that spoilt the audio experience in my opinion. This audio is graded at least excellent if not much better.
The original laminated front only Garrod & Lofthouse flipback cover is superbe appearance and extreemely clean for a 40 year old album this cover is graded at least excellent plus. Very clean 1st issue\1st press.
