The sleeve is fully textured & still a nice off white. The cover grades Excellent & reveals a little minor ring wear with just a faint patch of cosmetic wear in the top right corner, & no writing. A lovely example.

The vinyl grades Excellent & reveals just a few small spindle marks & the odd light paper scuff to highlight play & has a deep sheen both sides & impressive sound. This album is possibly the very height of creativity in progressive British Jazz... if you've seen the BBC's British Jazz documentary from a few years back, you'll know this is the record Gilles Peterson holds up to the camera as if to say, 'you must own this one'!
