Side One plays beautifully with little of note to fault bar a couple of minor background ticks, nothing distracting and overall closer to NEAR MINT.
Side Two's 'Moonchild' has a little surface on occasion and a couple of bits of hiss but all-in-all it's pretty clean for this problematic track
SLEEVE: EXCELLENT
Some light marks (small crosses next to some of the tracks on the inside of the cover) and rub, especially on the spine/corners, but good and solid and in fine condition
