Near Mint - (minus)
Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so.

May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
Possible minor surface noise when played.

The second set from the Jam, and a great batch of sharp post punk cuts for Mods young and old! Whether it's anthems like the title track and "All Around The World", their rousing taking on Wilson Pickett's "In The Midnight Hour" or mellower numbers like "Tonight At ... LP, Vinyl record album
