CONDITION/DESCRIPTION: The disc is EtoE+/E (VG+toVG++/VG+) with a few light to very light scratches, visible under a bright 'grading' light. There is also some general groove wear visible, more on side 2 than on side 1. The cover is E (VG+), with some edge rubbing, particularly along the top seam and minor corner damage, including creasing around the top left. Near to the bottom left there are two very small, light round stains, together with other very minor surface dirt. On the back, a previous owner has written (neatly in blue ink) the personnel used on the session.
