Japan Early Press LP
Apple AP - 80033
Appendices: “Original Medal OBI”, “G/F DIF Cover", “Inner-Bag” & “Insert”
Description: This is scarce Japanese Early Press copy ( released in early 1970’s ) of their US album, coming with complete appendices. The gate-fold cover shows inside “Japanese description” & “Photo of members”, different from any UK copy. The disc is not red but ordinary black. The price of 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 partly worn corners & outer-edges. It’s lightly scraped with light ring-wear on the surface of front & inside gate-fold. The back cover is lightly tanned on its surface, with its right-rim stained ( browned ). A light scratch line is in the right top hand of front. Otherwise it has no tear, dent, strip & writing…OK.
DISC: Disc is good in condition, keeping glossy. It has some slight scuffs on each side, with a light hairline on Side B. There’re several spindle-marks on each label. Otherwise it has none of any scratch, which is to be rated as "VG+".

INSERT: G+, being tanned ( browned ) on the surface of each side.
