Condition – Cover: EXCELLENT! Some shelf wear, mainly on back cover.
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. Top condition original Japanese pressings are becoming scarcer ~ and therefore more collectable and valuable every year.
