Condition :-

Very little is documented among Who fans & collectors regarding this unique 'girl cover' design. This is the first time we have stocked an original pressing. It is near impossible to find these days in any condition.
The sleeve grades VG+. There is nothing that spoils the lovely colour design. There are some crease marks from ring wear & scuffing to the paper in the corners. Due to the flimsy design, there are a couple of tiny paper splits caused by the kind of thumbnail pinch marks that occur in the spine when the paper stock is so light. & the edges do reveal some minor age wear. All text is clearly legible, despite a 2" paper split in spine's centre. This example will still look fantastic on a shelf & clearly identifiable. Some of the ring wear is evident on the back & there is a light 'circle' annotation by the track numbers. All text remains clear & vivid, including the original 'Made By Teichiku Records' print at the bottom along with the '1,800' yen price point. There is no writing. This stunning & colourful cover is worthy of framing & really yells 'sixties'!

Some foxing is noticeable on both sides of the insert & there are no tears or writing.

The labels have no tears or writing & there are some spindle marks around the centre hole to show play. The vinyl is heavyweight & a high quality Decca pressing. Both sides have a deep sheen & grade Excellent. On close inspection, the amount of play is revealed to be very minimal & there are no scratches or marks. Highly recommended.
