Note: All records are professionally cleaned prior to grading on an Okki Nokki RCM using L’Art Du Son cleaning fluid.
This does not restore a record to brand new, but rather removes the majority of dust and dirt to leave a record (and it’s audio) as clean as possible.
LAUGHING DEATH RECORDS
CLEVER MAN / A
CLEVER MAN / B
The sleeve appears to be in VG+ condition with general shelf and usage wear from over the years.
Visually the record appears to be in EX condition with some light sleeve marks.
Upon play testing sections of each side, I can confirm that the audio is generally excellent with only a few clicks and pops audible mainly between tracks.
Record Collectors Grading System
MINT (M): The record itself is in brand new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. The cover and any extra items such as the lyric sheet, booklet or poster are in perfect condition. Records advertised as Sealed or Unplayed should be Mint.
EXCELLENT (EX): The record shows some signs of having been played, but there is very little lessening in sound quality. The cover and packaging might have slight wear and / or creasing.
VERY GOOD (VG): The record has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticeable surface marks and the occasional light scratch. Normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items, without any major defects, is acceptable.
GOOD (G): The record has been played so much that the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and mild scratches. The cover and contents suffer from folding, scuffing of edges, spine splits, discolouration, etc.
The use of + or - allows for items that fall between the above grades.
Unfortunately as this is not my full time job, I am unable to fully play each side.
I play test sections on both sides of the record to gain an example of overall quality.
Audio quality may vary based on your Hi-Fi system.
My system consists of the following:
Michell Focus One turntable with Linn Basik Plus arm and Nagaoka MP20 cartridge.
Roksan Caspian amp with Mission 782 SE speakers and Chord cables and interconnects.
Creek OBH-21 SE headphone amplifier with Sennheiser HD600 headphones.
All records are sent in record mailers with stiffener and ‘DO NOT BEND’ labels
