Whoa! This is the original deep groove black label and the LP is in amazing and beautiful shape. Some pops here and there but thats about it. Little to no surface noise. A real wonderful sounding copy. Its real close to a NM but VG+ is more like it. The Cover is in ok shape. Could be better but still works just fine. Both top and bottom seems are splitting from the opening of the sleeve to almost the middle. Ring wear on the cover and a little on the back.
