The record is as new; the playback is variable due to 
the actual pressing (no problems at all visually), being
EX- in some places, but on the whole fine. Bear in mind
that these are recordings span the 1944 ~ 1952 period.

Flimsy gatefold: this cover is the best condition possible.
A nice touch is the sticker '41/- TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE'
