Picture & lyrics inner sleeve look good, cover looks excellent, with minimal ring wear and corner wear. Note there are some light surface scuff / scratch marks on the actual record: I have played this record years ago and do not recall the record skipping; that was years before the record was put into storage.

Please note that the cover may have some wear that is not highlighted in the description.
Please check the pictures carefully for edges, corners, ring wear, tears or anything else that might be of concern to you.

We don't CLEAN or PLAY the Records before listing them, Grading is done on a visual level only if at all, I am not comfortable putting a grade on, as it is ALWAYS subject to personal interpretation.

If there are defects I will do my best to bring them to your attention.

Overall I'd give it a B– Due to light scratch. It does hold up well, and is playable.

Please contact me with any questions or for additional photos.
