The Beatles Please Please Me CSJ-273 12 Taiwan? The vinyl looks pretty great for its age. I spot-played it, and it sounded great.
There were some crackles and pops, as is probably to be expected, given the age of the record. It could probably use a good cleaning.There were three noticeable marks that I could see (I suppose there could be others). I took photos of them, so you could check them out yourself. The first one is on the song Misery. " The second one that I noticed is on the songs "Twist and Shout" and "A Taste of Honey. " The third one is on the song "Baby It's You. I played the songs and, really, they sounded just fine. Again, there were some crackles and pops here and there.
The record sleeve has some pretty noticeable damage. For example, there are what appear to be some water stains on the top and the bottom. There are marks and dings on the edges and on the corners. And, overall, the sleeve (NOT THE VINYL) is warped.
It has a plastic covering that I wasn't entirely sure how to remove (in order to take clearer photos), so I just kept it on. Don't get me wrong, though. The album sleeve is still very presentable.
Please see photos for overall condition. Please contact me with any questions.
