I'm happy to report that on my equipment this does not sound. If not for this one hairline I would have been tempted to grade the LP EX+.
The sleeve is probably not quite as good. There is nothing of any major concern, no writing, no rips, no tears. There is nothing really wrong with it apart from spine is slightly creased and there are some creases to the laminate. I would grade EXCELLENT or NEAR EXCELLENT at worst.The Peter Blake designed cut out insert is in superb EX+ shape with no visible detects. In the final picture I have photographed the spine of this LP next to a Wide Spine copy in my own collection to highlight the difference and also show the spine creasing. Finally, I will be covering the cost of tracking this LP for both of our sakes.
