VINYL MEDIA WARNING!
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
Normally I would dump a record with such a serious surface click issue but this is the only copy I have and it is just such great music (in my opinion)
Vinyl media is in good condition, inspected under a white halogen light source and I can see just a couple of very light - light scratches and a couple of medium scratches. I then played the entire album and although this is great music, there are issues ...
Side A Track 1 - Track 2 interspace area - this is where Sookie Sookie has finished, the crowd applauds and then there is a total of 9 really decent "thumps" (i.e 9 revolutions = a short but medium scratch) but it is such that it is clearly audible. I examined the area with a microscope and it doesn't look very bad but it is certainly audible!
If you are quick, you can lift the tonearm and move over this area but in any case, watch out here - both for your ears and the styli tip!
Side A Track 2 - majority of the track is fine, then there is an instrumental section towards the end of the song (keyboards/lead guitar) and here I heard 3 clicks, 2 of which caused a very short mistrack, the lead guitar skips a note! These clicks are NOT thumps but they do disturb the song "flow"
The remaining tracks on Side A are fine - no other issues
Side B is fine on ALL tracks - no issues at all
In summary, although the first tracks have a couple of issues, overall this album is a really good play - love the bluesy/psych rock produced by this band
