Spectacular condition! Stop looking for an upgrade now, this copy is a beautty.

An unusual combination of matrix's and label design, this 1969 example has a blue boxed label, no speed 33rpm on left hand side, just a tiny S sitting under the ffss logo. One of the very earliest boxed stereo labels in 1969 (see images)

Both labels are near perfect, no sign of any spindle trails whatsoever, just minuscule evidence of a spindle entry but NO trails. We presume it to be previously hardly ever played. Hence the short soundfile example, carefully lifted on each opening track from each side. The vinyl itself carries full unblemished gloss, flawless in every way, under forensic under light examination the faintest hairline can be detected . Housed in original poly-lined blue printed stereo inner sleeve.

Machine stamped deadwax matrix reads XZAL-9363-P-1W flipside XZAL-9364-P-5W

The laminated cover is very clean, revealing only the merest soft signs of careful storage, we have done several images for your inspection. rather than you relying on my description to can see for yourself the exact usage the cover has had, strong excellent plus grading. Not writing, stain, stickers, tears or significant ceasing to be seen. Back cover has a soft hairline top left cover. but nothing to devalue it's integrity.

An exceptional copy in every way. A very challenging condition, you are unlikely to ever better.
