Queen - News Of The World Label:EMI - EMA 784 Format:Vinyl, LP, Album, Gatefold Country:UK Released:1977 Genre:Rock Matrix Side 1: YAX 5355-1 Matrix Side 2: YAX 5356-2. All records are graded to the Record Collector Guidelines, with extra information added as required when play tested. This record is in near mint condition. It has just a few short and faint spindle marks visible on the labels and there are no pen marks, scuffs, fading or staining anywhere. The centres show no serious wear and are not loose or worn.
Overall the labels are clean, bright and in very nice shape. There is a'Factory Sample - Not For Sale' sticker to the bottom half of side 2 however. As for the vinyl itself, both sides have a lovely lustre and show little. There is a couple of faint wispy lines just about visible when angled in normal light but there is nothing remotely serious or obvious. Overall it is in really nice condition with nothing at all obvious or major and just very slight signs of use to its playing surfaces.
I play tested the record and it played well throughout. It lays flat on the deck and upon playing there is little to no arm movement noticeable. The audio produced is excellent with nice clarity and of course no skips, sticks or loud annoying tics. I did note 2 or 3 very light tics in the opening couple of seconds of side 2 but these were very light and only sound very softly at the very start. Other than these there is little to mention with very little surface noise and next to no interference of any sort.
Overall a very nice sounding UK 1st press with no major issues and just slight signs of its age. The gatefold sleeve is in excellent condition. It is generally nice and tidy with no splits, tears, scuffs or pen marks. It does have some rubbing or storage wear to parts of the edges however(see pics). This is not at an extreme level but there is some to the spine and bottom edge.There is also a few small'bites' to the front right(record entry edge). Other than these few areas of wear the sleeve has no issues and is clean, bright and shows little to no creasing. There are also hardly any ring marks, and inside the gatefold is clean and issue free. Overall a nice tidy sleeve but with the few areas of storage wear as outlined. I have tried to describe the sleeve as best I can but please study the pictures provided to gain as much information as possible as to its condition.
It includes its original rounded corner red lyric inner which is in excellent+. The record will be sent in a brand new plain white inner to ensure no damage occurs to the original during transit. The record will then be packaged in between cardboard stiffeners and bubble wrapped thoroughly when dispatched.
