Additional infoRare original 1972 UK Island Records 9-track 1st issue LP - arty British glam rockers "confident, astonishing debut" album which "shimmers with seductive style and pulsates with disturbing synthetic textures".... which "primitive avant-garde tendencies are married to full-fledged songs, whether it's the free-form, structure-bending "Re-Make/Re-Model" or the sleek glam of "Virginia Plain," the debut single added to later editions of the album." Stephen T. Earlewine, Allmusic.

Vinyl has the pink rimmed 'palm tree' label and machinestamped matrix information:
Side 1: ILPS 9200 A-2U, mother/stamper 1 P
Side 2: ILPS 9200 B-2U, mother/stamper 1 PT
suggesting this to be a contract pressing manufactured by The Gramophone Co. Ltd., Hayes, Middlesex, from the 2nd mastering, 1st mothers within this and relatively early stampers.

Vinyl is housed in a generic light blue and purple printed polylined inner sleeve - and ultimately an outer laminated Tinsley Robor Group Ltd. gatefold picture cover wich has pink 'i' logo, company name and Basing Street address at mid lowermost back.

Condition: VG+(+) (Vinyl and Labels)/VG+(+) (Cover):
Vinyl is in beautifully shiny - has a some degree of sleeve only inflicted wear - looks like the album was inserted directly into the coarse card interior at some point. Nothing audible though - vinyl plays great.

Side 1 label 1 - 2 spindletraces, Side 2 label less than a handful - slightly more complex ones - all within the center ring.

Labels are graded near mint - vinyl overall close to near mint/excellent.

Picture cover has a little wrinkling from edges, a single thumbnail mark on mid back and just hints of superficial laminate only creasing - superb edges and corners - mint inner spread - at least a close to near mint cover - and overall a simply very nice copy.
