Japan Early Press LP
Apple AP - 80034
Appendices: "Medal OBI", “G/F Cover”, “Inner-Bag” & "Insert"
Description: This is scarce Japanese Early Press copy ( released in early 1970’s ) of their compilation album, coming with complete appendices. The gate-fold cover shows inside “Japanese description” & “Photos of members”. It’s different from any other countries’ copy. The disc is not red but black. The price on the back-cover & obi is JPY2000. It's hard to find this item in complete shape even in my country nowadays. Scarce item from Japan to serious collector.
Condition: VG/VG ( Cover / Disc )
COVER: Cover is good in condition, except for lightly worn corners & outer-edges. It’s lightly stained with minor brown spots on the surface of back and upper portion of front. The right-rim of front is discolored. Otherwise it has none of any tear, dent, strip, stain & writing...OK.
DISC: Disc is good in condition, keeping glossy. It has slight scuffs including slight scratches in places on the surface of each side. There’re a few to several spindle-marks on each label. Otherwise it has none of any serious flaw ( such as deep scratch ), which is to be rated as "VG". All flaws are so slight that it plays strong on each side.
OBI: G, being lightly creased and stained on the surface of front & back. The bottom-rim of “apple” is torn. The supply-tag in the top of back is stripped off and missing.
INSERT: G+, being lightly tanned with minor brown spots on the surface of each side.
INNER-BAG: VG, being lightly rippled with ring-crease on the surface of each side.
