Background on this item -
One of our absolute favorite conductors and orchestras on this rare, early pressed Decca LP! Superb UK (British) pressed LP featuring the voices of Elly Ameling, Helen Watts, Werner Krenn and Tom Krause, accompanied by none other than Ernest Ansermet with the fabulous L'Orchestre de la Suisse Romande. LP is a heavy slab of vinyl - first issued wide band decca record. The jacket has the famous Clairoil on the front. This is a super high quality issue from 1969. Superb condition of both the vinyl and jacket - a better copy would be very difficult to find!

The GATE-FOLD LP jacket is in Near Mint minus condition.
The jacket has NO seam splits - it is completely intact. The jacket front is covered by "clarifoil" (same stuff that was used in the highest quality Decca and EMI recordings). The back of the jacket has a slight notch or tear in two parts, about 1/8" (tiny and barely noticeable - see picture of back of the jacket for details).
The  jacket shows just a bit of light shelf wear, primarily at the corners and seams. The marks you see in the pictures are due to the camera flash reflections (angle).
The jacket has NO drill holes or saw marks of any kind.
There is NO hand writing on the front or back of the jacket.
The cover has clean and sharp colors - see pictures with this listing for more detail.

The LP (vinyl) itself:
The LP is in NEAR MINT minus condition. - A finer copy of this vintage LP would be very hard to find.
The LP retains most of the original gloss and sheen!
The record has NO serious marks on it, obviously well taken care of.
The record labels have NO significant spindle marks on them.
This is the near mint copy you have always wanted in your collection - any super picky audiophile should be happy with this one!
This LP may have a slight mark or two (spider marks) which are caused by sliding the LP in and out of the inner sleeve and are usually not audible on most audio systems.

Please understand that this is a vintage LP record - as such, one cannot expect the vinyl to sound like a brand new, audiophile pressing! Some noise is inevitable - for best results, always properly clean your LPs before playing them (even brand new LPs).

The LP is an audiophile quality pressing (any collector of fine MFSL, half speeds, direct to discs, Japanese/UK pressings etc., can attest to the difference a quality pressing can make to an audio system).

A Short Note About LP GRADING -
Mint {M} = Only used for sealed items.
Near Mint {NM} = Virtually flawless in every way.
Near Mint Minus {NM-} = Item has some minor imperfections, some audible.
Excellent {EXC} = Item obviously played and enjoyed with some noise.
Very Good Plus {VG+} = Many more imperfections which are noticeable and obtrusive.

Don't let this rarity slip by!!!
