Following The Tragic Death Of Original AC/DC Singer, Bon Scott, On 20 February 1980, ‘Back In Black’ Was The First AC/DC LP To Feature Brian Johnson On Vocals And Became The Band’s Tribute To Bon.
Condition – Vinyl: NEAR MINT! Some very light, wispy surface marks ~ definitely not audible. Huge, impressive sound!
Condition – Cover: EXCELLENT! Minor wear, small (claw?) mark under title on front. Amazingly nice and black still after 42 years!
Japanese vinyl pressings are highly sought after by audiophiles and collectors, due to their premium sound quality and beautifully presented packaging. The sonic quality of Japanese records is regarded as the best in the world. No wonder all the original Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab records were pressed in Japan! The covers are printed on better quality heavy stock paper too. Near Mint condition Japanese pressings are becoming scarcer ~ therefore more collectable and valuable every year.
