This is an early pressing as earlier pressings came with a posterboard fold-out insert protecting the LP. On one side is a description of Mo-Fi's background called "An Audiophile's Dream Come True!" and the other side "Superdiscs Supertapes Superstars Super Quality"
The LP itself is translucent (pressed on QUIEX virgin vinyl, hold it up to a bright light and you can see through it) and it comes in the original paper-line rice paper sleeve. Recorded in England, pressed in Japan.
Translucent QUIEX AUDIOPHILE virgin vinyl has a few light surface sleeve scuffs and light sleeve hazing just holding grade back from NM-, nothing I can feel though. Labels are excellent with a couple faint spindle marks near spindle hole. Rice paper sleeve has some handling wear but no splits or tears. Fold-over insert protecting the LP is excellent with a touch of cornerwear/edgewear. Cover has heavy cornerwear, heavy edgewear, heavy ringwear/hazing, a heavy ding lower left corner, a 1-inch split lower right edge, a tiny split upper right edge, about 3-inches of splitting center of top edge, and some various scuffs/marks.
If you’re not familiar with Quiex, it's like this: As CDs began coming on the scene in the 1980s, record companies started pressing Quiex II lps for primarily for radio stations. The idea was to show that vinyl was still king and sounded as good--or better--than CDs. MOST Quiex pressings were marked as Quiex that were shipped to radio. But if too many were pressed, they were packaged as regular LPs and those lucky enough to unknowingly buy them were then blessed with clearer sound! This translucent brown Audiophile beauty IS one of those pressings.
Songs: Come Together, Something, Maxwell's Silver Hammer, Oh! Darling, Octopus's Garden, I Want You (She's So Heavy), Here Comes the Sun, Because, You Never Give Me Your Money, Sun King, Mean Mr. Mustard, Polythene Pam, She Came in Through the Bathroom Window, Golden Slumbers, Carry That Weight, The End, Her Majesty (not listed on album cover)." />
