All my LP's, Albums & Singles are being sold off from my own private collection, all of which have
been cared for, are stored in poly sleeves and shelved correctly. I've graded and priced
my collection conservatively. I'm happy to answer questions you may have, provide further photos

Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath (LP, Album)

Media Condition: Very Good Plus (VG+)
Sleeve Condition Very Good (VG)

The record has 1=1/2=1 matrix (2nd Variation) on jet black glossy vinyl. A, VG+ on Vertigo swirl labels. Side B has two light scratches at the start of track one, which cause a little surface noise in the first half of track one when played, other than that this album sounds fantastic, closer to Excellent (EX).

The matt gatefold cover is VG, shelf wear to the edges and the spine has some heavier edge wear to the centre. The original Vertigo swirl inner sleeve is missing.


UK non laminated Gatefold cover

Track B1 is a Crow cover and track B3 is an AynsleyDunbar Retaliation cover.
