Both the record and the jacket are in VG++. (Very Good Plus Plus) condition using the Goldmine record grading system.
The inner paper sleeve is not original. Capitol Records Pressing Plant, Scranton.
Differences in appearance between this Scranton pressing and the other authentic Los Angeles pressing are as follows: Labels: The LA pressing features a matte, flat black background with no discernable patterns. Conversely, the Scranton pressing features concentric circles in its black portion.The LA pressing features the band name/album title (Gandalf/Gandalf) on the labels being on top of each other, but off-set. Conversely, the Scranton pressings have the Gandalf/Gandalf texts aligned.
Sleeves: The LA pressing features a factory code (the number/letter found near the bottom-right of the rear sleeve) of 20. The Scranton pressing contains a factory code of 11. The sleeves of both versions have a slick pasted over the front leaving the captions''File under: Rock'' and''ST 121'' in the top hand right corner.
Often seen with a "FREE" stamp and/or punch holes. These have been present on both variations. Please take note that a counterfeit pressing exists. They tend to feature a producer credit underneath the band/album names on the label. This producer credit is not featured on authentic pressings.
