ZERFAS - same (US 700 west 73) ML E-/E- BID

The rarest from this tiny Indiana independent label, and certainly the best of all. Even in whole the States, this is the most creative and attractive psych and prog mixture for offbeat recordings. As you know bloody impossible to find orig copies in any conditions. This one is decent. Beginning of mild ring wear on the front and the back, yet not completely ringed. There is a tiny punch hole only on the back cover top left. Seams and spine are fully intact. No tears, rip, bend or any other noticeable faults. Record has some light surface marks that barely audible. May have occasional minor ticks, but nothing overwhelm to the music. Stamp on the label of side two says "Adolescent Psychiatry". I think that's so sick!
