The LP (vinyl) itself:
The LP is in near MINT minus condition!
The LP retains much of the original gloss and sheen!
The record has no serious marks, obviously well taken care of.
There are a few light spindle marks on the record labels.
This is the near mint copy you have always wanted in your collection - any super picky audiophile would be happy with this one! A better copy would be very difficult to locate!
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.

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.

Don't let this rarity slip by!!!
