This is a really wonderful sounding copy of Parallel Lines, a domestic Chrysalis original that just kills. A smash hit album like this would be produced at a bunch of different pressing plants at different times, and having played a TON of copies over the years I can report that there are pretty drastic variations in sound quality between them. I recently sat down and compared a pretty big stack of copies and this one was definitely in the very top tier. The sound is super clean and lively, with wonderfully clear highs and punchy lows. The cover is in great shape too and the vinyl plays quietly. Comes complete with the lyric inner sleeve.
5 stars Allmusic: "State-of-the-art pop/rock circa 1978, with Harry's tough-girl glamour setting the pattern that would be exploited over the next decade by a host of successors..."
Vinyl: EX (one faint scuff that does not affect play)
Cover: VG+ (strong, light general wear)
Play notes: A truly strong copy with excellent sound and quiet vinyl
