This is a wonderful collection and nicely packaged, but a terrible vinyl pressing.

I was so excited when I found and bought this in Athens in the late eighties... Those were the days when I could afford to buy such things, instead of selling them... like I do nowadays...

By nature of the design of the box that houses the records it's probably rare to find one that is above VG cond. I don't think I'd trust most of the ones for sale that are listed as VG+. The actual jackets probably are, but I doubt the box itself is.
