LABELS: CLEAN and BRIGHT with NO wear, NO unwanted writing and light spindle traces only really evident when angled under a bright light
VINYL Visual: The vinyl has a DEEP, GLOSSY SHEEN. There are a couple of superficial hairlines but these have NO audio consequence - The LP plays like a dream
VINYL Audio: OUTSTANDING audio delivery - CRYSTAL CLEAR, VERY STRONG, FRESH, IMMEDIATE sound. There are NO scratches, NO jumps, NO sticks, NO clicks/pops and NO surface noise - SOUNDS ABSOLUTELY SENSATIONAL. The LP plays to an impressively high standard with NO groove-wear and NO distortion and must be very strictly graded EXCELLENT++ for audio. NOT over-graded in ANY way as I use STRICT RECORD COLLECTOR grading standards (please refer to my feedback and 'about me' page). SUPERB COPY
SLEEVE: The 1st issue FRONT LAMINATED, PINCHED SPINE, FLIPBACK G&L cover is also EXCELLENT++. The front laminate has a DEEP GLOSS and the back is CLEAN with minimal wear.

REDUCED POSTAGE FOR MULTIPLE ITEMS (EACH ADDITIONAL LP: UK: £1.00, EU & INTERNATIONAL £2.00)
I will combine postage for items purchased within any 10 day period. However, at the end of each 10 day period, all outstanding items will need to be paid for in full and will be posted to you. Any items purchased after payment will be included in the next 10 period.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation

Guarantee: I try to be as accurate and honest as possible when describing the condition of any LP but of course if you feel that I am mistaken and the description is inaccurate I will offer a complete, no quibble refund (through Paypal) upon return of the item.
ALL RECORDS ARE PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED BEFORE DISPATCH AND PACKAGED WITH THE VINYL OUTSIDE OF THE SLEEVE TO PREVENT ANY 'KNIFING' DURING TRANSIT.
A PROTECTIVE POLY SLEEVE, QUALITY MAILER AND STIFFENERS ARE ALWAYS USED TO ENSURE THAT YOUR RECORD ARRIVES SAFELY


I will email you when payment has been received to let you know when the item will be posted. Please leave feedback upon receipt of the item so that I know you have received it safely. Any problems please email me. Thanks
