Vinyl is pressed on dark purple/blue material and comes with upper half generic company 'sunrise' labels.
Vinyl has handwritten matrix information:
Side 1: DNLS 3038 A-1G, mother /stamper 1 M
Side 2: DNLS 3038 B-1G, mother /stamper 1 P
there is a 'delta' sign between '1' and 'G'.
Matrix information basically follows the ley out from The Gramophone Co. Ltd.'s, Hayes, pressing plant.
Vinyl comes complete with green tinted and illustrated lyrics and credits insert - held in a slightly textured single pocket picture cover.
Condition: VG+ (Vinyl and Labels)/VG++ (Insert)/VG+ (Cover):
Side 1 vinyl has a couple of light and inaudible surface marks paired with a little sleeve inflicted wear - Side 2 has a light degree of sleeve inflicted wear only. Vinyl itself is a very nice upper VG+.
Labels are nice - as a spiderweb of spindletraces placed within the centerring... an indeterminable amount, but not indicating a very used album. A very small part of lower left Side 2 label is slightly dispaced near the end of the trail off - hence the overall VG+ label grading.
Insert is nice near mint.
Cover has a little lower right corner waving from dried up water absorption leaving a slightly brownish discolouration.
Cover has a small top front tag-glue residue - otherwise a simply very nice cover with only faint age discolouration, intact seams and very nice spine corners - upper opening corner has very slight rubbing - lower seam has light rubbing against opening.
