A lot to describe here so let’s crack on!
A great play copy of this mono classic - nowhere near mint but pretty respectable.
Early press top loader with matrix numbers YEX 709-1, 710-1, 711-1, 712-1.
I would grade the vinyl as G/G+.
There are numerous scratches evident and a few heavier ones, scuffs and many signs that this album was played lots.
However it played all the way through with only one skip on “While my Guitar”. There are some quieter pops in places and surface noise evident on the quieter passages.
Overall it was a good listen and nothing there to really distract from the music apart from the one skip.
Labels are in good shape and the records come in the two original black inners which show some wear and a couple of small splits.
The top loading gatefold is in good shape. The laminate remains glossy and the sleeve has no splits or tears and shows the usual discolouration and ring wear. Quite presentable overall.
Four photos remain in very good shape along with two blank divider sheets (not sure where the second one came from.)
Poster has two splits (pictured) and is quite weak at the seams but remains intact with creasing and some discolouration.
Overall not a bad copy for someone who wants a good early press to listen to.

NOTE - the matrix numbers start with XEX, not YEX as written in description.
