Ltd All records are graded to the Record Collector Guidelines, with extra information added as required when play tested. This record is in very good condition. It has spindle marks and wear to the labels. They are not loose or excessively worn but there is signs of use and age to them with wear around the centres and spindle marks to both sides.
There are no pen marks, scuffs, stains or severe levels of fading and all text is still legible. Overall the labels are not pristine but are also far from awful with no really major issues, just general age/use related issues. As for the vinyl itself, both sides still have a nice lustre but do have some scratches and general signs of use/age to them. There is a couple(1 on each side) of noticeable and nasty looking scratches.
These do not look great but luckily cannot be felt. Other than these there is also a few other lighter and fainter scratches and also general light signs of use and age to both sides.
Overall a used vintage lp that has these scratches and signs of use but also nothing that can be felt or that is really severe. I play tested the record and it produced audio that was an enjoyable listen throughout with no major issues or severe levels of interference. Firstly it lays flat on the deck and upon playing there is little to no movement in the record arm. The audio produced is closer to a grade of VG+ in my opinion and would easily match the visual grading of VG.
There is some surface noise in the run ins on both sides and a light amount between some tracks. There is no skips, sticks or loud disruptive tics however, with the scratches mentioned above having little to no noticeable affect. I noted a hint of distortion in parts of the last track on side 1 but nothing at all major or serious.
Other than the odd hint of distortion and light amount of surface noise in places it plays tidily throughout with no major or disruptive issues and audio that can certainly be enjoyed. The front laminated flipback sleeve is in very good condition. It is solid all round with no splits but does have signs of its age.There are no pen marks on the sleeve and no major levels of creasing to the laminated front. There is light ring marks showing to the front however. The rear has more issues to outline however with a partially removed sticker showing in the top right corner, damage to the bottom flipback(see pics) and age related grubbiness all over. There is also some wear to the edges and corners.
This is mostly on the corners however and the spine is still all clearly legible. Overall a solid sleeve but one that has signs of age and a few issues as I have tried to outline.
Please study the pictures provided to gain as much information as possible on the sleeves condition. It contains its original poly-lined'Use Emitex' inner which is in very good condition with no tears, splits or pen marks but with age related discolouring/grubbiness and general signs of age. The record will be sent in a brand new anti-static replacement inner to ensure it remains clean and ready to play.
