This is undoubtedly the very nicest and most complete copy of ‘Wish You Were Here’ I have seen in my 45 years of record collecting! 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! And this is a record that is over 44 years old!!
Condition – Cover: EXCELLENT! Hint of shelf wear on cover (many would grade as NEAR MINT). Shrink wrap has, er shrunk, so it doesn’t fit around the cover anymore (VG). Poster, postcard and insert are all NEAR MINT!
Note: The original Japanese pressing of ‘Wish You Were Here’ was not issued with an obi strip, due to the blue film shrink wrap around the 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. Near Mint condition original Japanese pressings are becoming scarcer ~ and therefore more collectable and valuable every year.
