The all important
‘black gold’ labels on this UK 1st pressing are truly superb and
retain their original shop freshness. Both labels are free of any
spindle trails. The gold lettering is shop fresh and completely unworn. The MT
tax code is visible on side 2.
Audio: EXC+/nr MINT
Very little to fault this superb
sounding copy other than some occasional surface noise evident between some
tracks and a few faint ticks on the play out to ‘Ask Me Why’ but other than
that it really is a superb sounding copy with all the dynamics and power of
this famous pressing. There is no groovewear or distortion to any of the music
signals. A great listening experience. Needless
to say the record does not jump or stick.
The record has many light whispy
sleeve removal marks and other light superficial surface marks but non are deep
or feelable or offensive. In short this record has been played many times on
good equipment and has been clearly looked after in its 50 year history. The
grade falls short of excellent but exceeds very good. In consideration of how
superb and undamaged the audio is I have graded the vinyl as excellent minus. The record lies
100% flat on the turntable.
The record comes in its original E J Day GOLD cover.
A very respectable example example and tough to find in this condition. The
front panel still retains its high gloss sheen and shows only minor signs of
wear. The rear panel is clean and free from any writing. There is wear along
the bottom edge of the sleeve and some minor damage to the bottom flipback
however all flipbacks are still intact. One only needs to check out the
condition of most sleeves which are now appearing on to realise that this
is a nice example and many sellers would grade higher.
Inner-sleeve EXCELLENT +
Clean & correct with just a touch of light
