I'm not a vinyl expert, so if anyone has any questions or comments respectfully, I would be happy to answer, or add to listing info. From what I gather, this great LP (one owner, my sister) is. The first pressing of this release, which has no publishing/rights society credits for any of the songs, and does not have George Martin's producer credit on the back jacket.Does this mean 3d pressing? Tears at sleeve and slight scraping to spine edges. I just played this beauty and it has no skips. It does need cleaning but I don't have the proper cleaner. Cover is in good condition.. I have not gotten this officially graded, so please look at the pics. I want to say VG++ since it looks scratch free, or if there is a faint one it does not effect listening. Feel free to weigh in, or inquire, but please do so respectfully.
