Background -
This STEREO LP features music written by Rimsky-Korsakov and performed by Irina Arkhipova (scenes from The Snow Maiden and Tsar's Bride). Superb performances throughout! The LP was made in RUSSIA, and the recording was released in the 1960s (we believe). This item is in remarkable condition given it's age (see below for details).

See the picture of the back of the LP for details

The LP jacket is in very good plus condition.
The jacket has NO seam splits - it is completely intact, but does show some shelf wear, primarily weakening at the seams and corners. There is a bit of paint lifted off the front cover where a price sticker once was. 
It has NO drill holes or saw marks of any kind on the jacket. 
There is a hand written number on the back of the jacket, top, right corner - see picture for more detail.
The cover has clean and sharp colors - see picture with this listing for more detail.

The LP (vinyl) itself:
The LP is in excellent plus condition.
The LP retains much of the original gloss and sheen.
The record has no serious marks, but does have some light spider marks (these are caused by sliding the LP in and out of the inner sleeve - most of the time these types of marks are not audible, but that really depends on the sensitivity of your audio gear).
There are NO spindle marks on the record labels.

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.

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!!!
