All records are graded to the Record Collector Guidelines, with extra information added as required when play tested. Also all photos above are of the exact record you will receive if purchased.
This record is in excellent+ condition. It has a few faint spindle marks visible on each label but there are no pen marks, scuffs or any other damage such as stains or fading. The centres are not loose or worn and overall the labels are clean, bright and in great shape.
As for the vinyl itself, both sides are nice and clean overall with a lovely lustre and nothing remotely serious or deep showing. There is however a few faint lines, mild sings of age and minor sleeve 'scuffs' showing lightly in places. There is also a few more thin light wispy lines or faint sleeve marks visible under bright light but again nothing deep or serious. So overall a vintage used record which is in very nice shape, has a lovely lustre but shows some light signs of use and age.
I play tested the record and it played very well and sounded great throughout. It lays flat on the deck and upon playing there is only a very minor amount of upward movement in the record arm. This is very slight and of course has no affect on the sound produced which is excellent throughout. There is no distortion caused by excessive use and of course no skips, sticks or annoying clicks. There was also barely any surface noise and certainly nothing at all severe. I noted a trace in the run in and very early stages of each side but nothing at all major and overall it was a pleasure to play test. It played very well with audio of nice clarity and good quality from start to finish.
The sleeve is in excellent+ condition. It has little to no wear or rubbing to the edges and corners with the writing along the spine all clearly legible. There are no splits, tears, scuffs or pen marks anywhere and next to no creasing. There is only the most minor faint ring marks evident and very little at all to report to the laminated front. The rear has some mild age related grubbiness to the flipbacks and white centre area but for over 55 years old this is slight and overall the sleeve is in great shape. Please study the pictures provided to gain as much information as possible.
It includes its original CBS inner which is in excellent+ condition. This has no splits, tears or pen marks and only mild creasing and light age related discolouring. I will send the record in a brand new plain white replacement to ensure no damage occurs to the original.
The record will be packaged in cardboard stiffeners and bubble wrapped thoroughly when dispatched. It will also be sent in a brand new protective plastic sleeve, and within 24hrs of receiving payment to try to ensure a swift delivery.
