PCS 7027: Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band (ca.1967) Stereo mix
The gatefold jacket is the laminated Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd. printing and provides excellent detail resolution when compared to later pressings of the same LP. I'm rating the gatefold jacket to be in VG condition with dog-eared corners and a slightly ratty but intact spine. The spine is "mostly" readable and there are no seam splits.
labels: yellow on Black
Side two matrix codes:
The vinyl plays near silently between tracks with only soft surface noise appearing now and then. The sound quality has great clarity of tone and depth of detail offering a superior listen when compared to a Capitol pressing of this album that I have. I rate the vinyl at VG++ on both sides subtracting a few points for minor scuffing and some spindle marks to the label. Overall, a really nice stereo Sgt. Peppers to listen to.
First lacquer, 4th Mother, likely a first pressing but far from being an early one. A good sounding LP.
