It is SO difficult to find this pressing in such fine condition (hence the price). An absolute gem that will go to the good home of a Pink Floyd enthusiast who fully appreciates the brilliance of this superb album.
Condition – Vinyl: NEAR MINT!! Fantastic ~ super quiet vinyl with dynamic sound quality!
Condition – Cover: NEAR MINT!! There are a couple of barely noticeable spots and a little edge wear, but I am calling this NM, because it is f@#%in’ incredible that a white record cover can still look like this over 46 years later!! Nicest one I have ever seen.
Note: The original Japanese pressing of ‘Wish You Were Here’ was not issued with an obi strip.
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 original Japanese pressings are becoming scarcer ~ and therefore more collectable and valuable every year.
