Listen to these tracks on youtube :

A recording of amateur folk singers quite charming in its own way. A little gem in my opinion.
The cover has some minor wear/creases but overall is in very good condition.
The record has some surface marks on both sides (these might be pressing defects).
Anyway I have played the record through a couple of times and it plays well with just some ticks here and there.
I am going to grade this record Very Good + & the cover Very Good +.
