The Gatefold sleeve designed and photographed by Marcus Keef. Originally to be titled War Pigs, changed at the last minute to avoid offending America due to their involvement in the Vietnam conflict. As mentioned in the main description this has the credit to Jim Simpson/Big Bear Managament on inner gatefold. These were withdrawn due to contractual disputes between the band and Big Bear.
There is a light crease on the bottom left corner and just minimal wear on the edges, there was a originally a name tag attached to the inside but over time this is no longer attached and has just left two small glue tape marks.
The label features the large swirl logo above spindle and 'VERTIGO' text below. This label design was used for both the first issue (with Big Bear credit) and the second issue (with the Big Bear credit removed).
Apart from a couple of light spindle mark the labels are extremely clean. We were told that the original owner was not allowed to play his records by his parents, and were only played a few times.
This is backed up by the vinyl, there are just a few paper scuffs and a few noticeable light surface marks, but shows only a few signs of play, and for being almost forty five years old this is an excellent example.
