THE DARK GREEN SIDES ARE VERY RICH AND VIBRANT, AND HAVE LOST NONE OF THE COLOUR AT ALL. THE BLACK TYPEFACE IS BOLD AND PERFECTLY LEGIBLE. THE WHITE SIDE IS VERY WHITE THE VINYLTHE VINYL HAS RETAINED IT'S ORIGINAL SHEEN AND GLEAMS LIKE A POLISHED MIRROR. THE VINYL LOOKS SUPERB IN DAYLIGHT AND WHEN PLACED UNDER SPOLIGHTS THERE ARE A FEW SMALL HANDLING LINES ON THE LAST TRACK SIDE A (NON SOUNDING) PLUS A FEW WISPY HAIRLINESPLAYING THE RECORDI BELIEVE THAT IF YOU ARE GOING TO SPEND YOUR MONEY ON A FANTASTIC COLLECTABLE VINYL, THAT YOU SHOULD BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR WHAT YOU ARE BUYING. I HAVE THEREFORE INVESTED IN THE SOFTWARE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO DO JUST THAT.I HAVE RECORDED THE ENTIRE ALBUM FROM START TO FINISH AS I DO WITH ALL MY LISTINGS, BECAUSE I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT BIDDERS WOULD LOVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE ABLE TO HEAR THE RECORD BEFORE LAYING A BID.THIS IS A SERVICE I AM DELIGHTED TO BE ABLE TO OFFER MY CUSTOMERS THE LP PLAYS BEAUTIFULLY ALL THE WAY THROUGH BOTH SIDES, WITHOUT ANY TRACE OF DISTORTION CAUSED THROUGH GROOVE WEAR. A STUNNING STEREO REPRODUCTION WITH NOTES BEING HEARD CRISPLY AND CLEANLY.IT IS WORTH POINTING OUT THAT FIRST PRESS RELEASES ALWAYS SOUND BETTER THAN LATER PRESSES. TAKING A LISTEN TO 'THE TWO OF US' SHOULD EASILY CONFIRM THISTHERE IS NO HEAVY BACKGROUND CRACKLE AND NO LOUD CLICKSTHERE IS SOME OCCASIONAL TINY SPECKS OF LIGHT STATIC LIKE BACKGROUND HEARD DURING THE MOST SILENT PASSAGES, AND A FEW TINY LITTLE DUST POPS/TIC HERE AND THEREI AM HAPPY TO GRADE THIS LP EXCELLENT PLUS FOR THE AUDIOBUT PLEASE TAKE A GOOD LISTEN AND JUDGE IT AGAINST YOUR PERSONAL STANDARDS THE BOX AND SLEEVETHE FIRST ISSUE OF THIS ALBUM ONLY CAME IN THIS DELUXE PRESENTATION SET. IT WAS RELEASED ON MAY 8TH 1970. TO OBTAIN JUST THE STANDARD ISSUE YOU HAD TO WAIT UNTIL NOVEMBER 6TH 1970. THE BOX SET SOLD POORLY BY COMPARISON BECAUSE OF ITS PRICE.THE FACT THAT NOT MANY HAVE SURVIVED IN A COLLECTIBLE CONDITION IS DUE WHOLLY TO THE TERRIBLE DESIGN WHICH I WILL DESCRIBE IN FULLSTARTING WITH THE OUTER SLEEVE. THIS IS A FULLY LAMINATED SLIDE OVER SLEEVE AND WAS DESIGNED TO JUST SLIP OVER THE CARD TRAY CONTAINING THE BOOK AND LP. THE PROBLEM WITH IT IS THAT IT IS MADE OF A VERY FLIMSY CARD AND THIS HAS RESULTED IN MOST COPIES TEARING ON THE SEAMS WHERE THE TRAY SITS TOO SNUGLY INSIDE. OTHER PROBLEMS OFTEN SEEN INCLUDE TERRIBLE CREASING AND LAMINATE LIFT. PEEL AND FLAKE.THIS ONE HOWEVER IS IN SUPERB CONDITION WITH ONLY ONE SMALL BLEMISHSTARTING WITH THE FRONT SURFACE , THIS HAS REMAINED HIGHLY POLISHED AND THE LAMINATE LOOKS GREAT. THERE ARE NO HEAVY CREASES OR CREASE LINES AT ALL, AND NO BENDS EITHER. THERE IS A SCUFF LINE ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE CASE ON THE OUTER EDGE AND A MINUSCULE SPECK OF RUB ON THE BOTTOM LEFT CORNER TIP. AND THESE ARE THE ONLY TWO ISSUES.THERE ARE UNUSUALLY NO LAMINATE PRESSURE LINES ON ANY OF THE EDGES THE LAMINATED TOP AND BOTTOM EDGES ARE BOTH IN SUPERB CONDITIONTHE REAR OF THE SLIPCASE IS ALSO IN PERFECT CONDITION. AGAIN NO PRESSURE LINES AND A GLEAMING BLACK LAMINATE THIS IS ONE OF THE CLEANEST BOXES I HAVE SEEN ON THIS VERY RARE AND DELICATE SET THE INNER TRAY IS USUALLY FOUND BADLY SPLIT. AGAIN THE PROBLEM WAS CAUSED BY THE DESIGN. A VERY HEAVY BOOK WAS INLAID INTO THIS TRAY WHICH WAS VERY VERY DELICATELY PUT TOGETHER. THE WEIGHT OF THE BOOK WHEN THE BOX WAS STOOD UPRIGHT (OF COURSE THIS IS HOW IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE) EVENTUALLY CAUSED THE WEAKEST JOINTS TO SPLIT. THIS IS WHY THERE ARE SO MANY REPRODUCTIONS ABOUT AS MOST ORIGINALS GOT TOTALLY RUINED.THIS ONE IS AN ORIGINAL NOT A REPRO. THE OUTER SECTION OF THE TRAY IS IMMACULATE WITH ALL OF THE ORIGINAL MATT BLACK STILL THERE AND THE ROUNDED EDGES FLAPS UNDAMAGED IN ANY WAY.NO CREASES OR RIPS AND NO WEAR, OTHER THAN A LITTLE RUB TO THE CORNERS A REALLY TOP EXAMPLETHE PERFORATED INNER TRAY IS ALSO IN EXCEPTIONALLY NICE CONDITION. THE ONLY LITTLE FLAWS ARE A TINY SPLIT TO TWO OF THE ANGLES (INNER CORNERS). NOT ENOUGH TO SPLIT THE TRAY LIKE MOSTTHE BOOK ALSO SUFFERS FROM POOR DESIGN. MOST COPIES YOU WILL SEE HAVE ALL OF THE PAGES FALLING OUT AS THE GLUED IN DESIGN WAS WEAK, AND THE MINUTE YOU OPENED THE BOOK TO LOOK AT IT OR READ IT, THE UNDUE STRESS WAS PLACED ON THE GLUE AND LO AND BEHOLD THE PAGES STARTED TO FALL OUT. WHAT WE HAVE HERE IS A BOOK THAT HAS ONLY A FEW LOOSE PAGES. THERE IS A REALLY MINT GLEAMING SHEEN TO THE FRONT AND BACK COVERS, FINALLY THE ACTUAL ALBUM ITSELFTHE ONE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS LP AND THE NOVEMBER ISSUE WAS THAT ON THE REAR OF THE BOX SET SLEEVE, THE APPLE LOGO WAS IN RED, WHEREAS THE LATER ISSUES HAD A GREEN APPLE. ONE WAY TO TELL IF YOU HAVE A FIRST ISSUE ALBUMTHE SLEEVE IS JUST MAGNIFICENT. THE FRONT SURFACE GLEAMS LIKE A MIRROR, AND THERE IS NO LAMINATE CREASING AT ALL ON ANY PART, THERE ARE TWO TINY PRESSURE LINES BY THE SPINE.NONE ALONG THE TOP AND BOTTOM EDGES, AND ONE THUMB LINE BY THE OPENING EDGE. NO RING WEAR, JUST A VERY LIGHT RECORD SHAPE WHEN YOU ANGLE THE SLEEVE INTO THE LIGHTTHE TOP AND BOTTOM EDGES ARE 100% FREE FROM ANY WEAR APART FROM THE VERY BOTTOM RIGHT TIP WHICH HAS A PIN PRICK OF RUBTHE SPINE IS ALSO IN MINT CONDITION WITH EVERY LETTER OF THE TYPEFACE PERFECTLY LEGIBLE.AND THIS WAFER THIN AREA HAS ALL OF THE LAMINATE INTACT WITH JUST THE VERY TIP ENDS TOP AND BOTTOM HAVING A PIN PRICK OF RUBBINGTHE OPENING EDGE IS RAZOR SHARP AND IT IS EVIDENT THAT THIS PRECIOUS ALBUM HAS NOT BEEN OUT OF THE SLEEVE MORE THAN A FEW TIMESTHE REAR SURFACE IS EVERY BIT AS BRILLIANT AS THE FRONTA REALLY TOP SUPERB BOX SET, THAT I AM PLEASED TO BE ABLE TO OFFER UP FOR AUCTIONTAKE A GOOD LISTEN TO THE RECORD AND JUDGE IT ALL FOR YOURSELF GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR BID IF YOU CHOOSE TO GO FOR IT GARRY
