About this copy: This copy of Bobbie Gentry and Glen Campbell is an original 1968 Japanese pressing, pressed on “Everclean” red vinyl.
The cover is VG++, with a bent corner and a bit of foxing on the back. The rare obi is VG+, with a few wrinkles, but no tears. The “hojyuhyo”, or reorder tag, is still attached.
The original lyric insert is included.
The disc is M- on side 1 and VG+, with a few light scuffs, on side 2. The album has clearly had little play.
A nice copy of a terrific record.
