This is possibly one of the rarest entries on a label which release already rare as hen's teeth; we've never seen one before, and although hope springs eternal, are unlikely to get one again any time soon. This copy is not without its issues, although we are proud to have rescued it from the wild to go to a serious collector who will treat it with the care that such an item deserves.

The sleeve

The sleeve is graded as G-; there is a 5" tear to the front at the opening, which has not resulted in any paper loss, there is laminate loss to roughly 1" along the opening edge at the front, but not affecting the reverse. The artwork is still clear and there are only a few minor spots of discolouration & fading visible. The spine has just a little laminate chipping with the text clear & legible. The flipbacks are secure and there are no seam splits. The reverse shows a little discolouration and a small section of a Prestige sticker which previously covered the Tempo address is still adhering. There is light ringwear and just a small, shallow crease to the bottom left corner. All the text on the reverse is clear & legible. All in all a flawed, but serviceable example.

The vinyl

The vinyl is graded as Good. Both sides show extensive scuffing with some deeper marks & hairlines. The vinyl has been professionally cleaned on a high-end matrix machine and play testing confirms moderate to loud back ground noise, mainly to the beginning of both sides with intermittent pops and clicks, although nothing to completely overwhelm the music. The labels are reasonably clean and the Tempo logo has been overstickered on both sides with a Prestige label, suggesting this copy was exported abroad at one time; the sticker to side 2 is mostly free and could be removed if desired.

A serviceable copy to complete a collection at a reasonable price.
