Signed by 4 members with unique messages including "Be Bop Deluxe were never like this" see photos. Ali from the band gifted this to the original owner, Graham, who was a work colleague. Folk wasn't his type of music he was into Be Bop Deluxe at the time hence the message. There for he only listened to it once. The sleeve has been kept in a clear protective sleeve from new.
It does have some light ringwear, as does probably every other copy due to the sleeve being made with very soft card/paper. The ring wear has a little black rubbing caused by the protective sleeve. Apart from that it is in great shape, 1 minor corner bump, no rips or splits. The record is in stunning condition, only had 1 play ever. No marks at all on the vinyl.
Side 1 label has no spindle trails at all. Side 2 has a couple of trails from the same play.I only grade Mint if still sealed but this is as close as it gets. I doubt if there is a better copy out there.
All Items orders before 14. We remove all records from their sleeve, where there is a lyric inner or similar the record will also be removes and transported in a poly lined inner. All contents will the be bagged.We package our records in the best available mailers with two cardboard protective stiffeners, great care is taken with all packaging to ensure that your record arrives in the best possible condition. Auctions please pay within 4 days of the listing ending. Heavy items such as Hi-Fi equipment are excluded. Please note that all of our records are visually graded under strong light, unless otherwise stated. We stock 1000's of records so it is impossible for us to play every record.
Please feel free to request a play grade which we will happily provide. We only grade as mint where the record is brand new and sealed with no visible damage to the sleeve.It may have slight corner bumps/rub, ringwear and maybe very minor creasing. It will have no rips or splits.
Record: We be in a new like condition. It may have very, very minor defects such as no more than a couple of very light wispy hairlines and a couple of spindle trails around the centre holes. Basically a record in NM condition will look like you have just got it back from the record shop or at worse only had a couple of plays.Sleeve: As NM but the signs of wear will become a little more pronounced. There may be signs of stress at the seams maybe the beginnings of a split. It may have a cut out hole indicating that it was taken out of print.
There may be a little graffiti on the sleeve or label. Record: Will show signs of play but has been well looked after by the previous owner. It may show a few more light marks/scuffs than a NM.These marks won't be deep enough to be felt. Slight warps are that don't effect the sound are OK. Sleeve: A VG sleeve will have many of the defects found in a EX but more pronounced. Seam splits may be more obvious or may be taped or show residue. There may be small rips. Laminate may be bubbled, may be marred with writing. Record: Wear and defects will be more obvious with marks/scuffs deep enough to feel with a fingernail.
Groove wear will be more noticeable. Sound deterioration and surface noise will become more likely especially during quieter passages. We don't sell records with a lower grade than VG unless it is incredibly rare.
