ABBA/ARRIVAL (LP/33rpm) 1976 Atlantic SD 18207 (EX). Matrix (very nicely etched, I believe, see photo) ST-A-763767-A At. Hopefully you can see the song titles from the photos of Side 1 and 2. Arranged and produced by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus. A Polar Music Production.
Atlantic Label is in great shape, no major spindle marks. Comes with an inside cover sleeve with lyrics on one side and a beautiful color photo of them on the other side. The front cover does have white fade marks showing up as ringwear now, besides heavy white flaking now at the left seam side where their title/name would be. You can see a wrinkle near the middle of the right open seam and there is some wear to that right open seam. Back cover shows the white ringwear marks, too. Penned-in inital "D" is at the lower left side of back cover. Side 1 has 2 long surface scratches that really may be more of a scuff, as they aren't deep and don't affect the sound quality. There's a couple of small surface scratches here and there, too. (Viewed under a bright lamp.) Side 2 is better! No scuffs or scratches. I played it through on my Technics turntable and there were no skips or pops and barely any general crackles. It was almost like a fairly new LP playing--crisp and clear! I was thrilled with that!
I give the cover a Very Good only (VG) due to ringwear and side flaking. But the vinyl I give an Excellent (EX) due to good sound quality and only a few light scuffs/scratches not affecting playback. ($4.00 shipping within USA.)
