This is a domestic Geffen first pressing mastered at Sterling in the withdrawn cover with the withdrawn insert. The sound is very good here, but there is definitely some surface noise behind the quieter parts of the "R side" which contains the newer material like "Patience". It never overpowers the music but it's definitely there and will get in your enjoyment if background noise ruins the fun for you. It's not all that easy to find quiet copies and especially with the original cover.
Vinyl: VG+ (side G super clean, side R faint hairlines)
Cover: VG+ (solid, light creases)
Play notes: Sounds very good, side two plays with some surface noise but nothing crazy
We prefer to overdeliver and therefore grade conservatively. Our scale runs Near Mint (NM), Excellent (EX), Very Good Plus (VG+), Very Good (VG), Good Plus (G+), Good (G).
