So this album remains as it was in the sales bin in the late 90's. It does have some bends and shelf wear which is to be expected for something that was in a public store long enough to get put in the clearance bin.
Check out the pictures, which were taken by me today, for better views of the wear and bends. Also, the white paper surrounding the album was on there when I bought it. I have never removed it as I wanted to keep this in its original state. Not sure if this was added by the store or previous owner, but either way I didn't touch it. I moved it in different positions so you could see each part of the album behind it.If you would like to see more angles, let me know and I can send. I'm a non-smoker with no children but kept this (stored upright) in a large safe so it was never exposed to danger. A divorce and the pandemic has forced me to sell this copy to someone that will appreciate it as much as I do. The way to tell the original pressing is by the UPC barcode (7 05178 00041 7) on the back.
The counterfeit pressings do not have them. On the inside, according to other sites, this contains Double LP with3 tracks per side. The vinyl has the Shirley hair photo on one of the sides on each vinyl. The reverse shows the tracks on either side.Mastertone is stamped on the vinyl itself near the center. The two LPs are both in paper sleeves with some lyrics and thank yous from the band. Take note of this Whiplash box in the pictures as well as how it will be packed. Happy to answer any questions!
