Rarity Scale – Rare
What we have here is a Dutch first pressing of the third studio album by King Crimson “Lizard”.
The disc plays amazing. All music is loud and clear. There is some light crackle here and there, especially at the very beginning and run-out of both sides (pressing). Overall we can conclude these Dutch Stateside pressings are great. A very enjoyable disc for the serious collector.
The labels are clean and near perfect. One side has only one spindle trace. The other side has no spindle marks. We can say this record has seen maybe one turntable in its life. We grade the disc NM.
The sleeve is in EX+ condition. It is clean has almost no wear near the edges. The top right corner has a small bumb. At the opening of the gatefold there is some slight lamination lift but all is still intact.
The inside of the gatefold is like new. The die-cut opening is perfect. The spine is also in great shape and is fully readable.
Guaranteed genuine original pressings.
The record you see on the Photos is the record you buy.
