NOS (New Old Stock), sealed in original longbox packaging. Upper corner of shrinkwrap beginning to peel (see photo). Bottom of longbox dented (see photo, arrived to record store like this, common to longbox packaging at the time). This item is a highly limited edition and has been out of production since 1992 (produced from Oct 1990 to March 1992).
Made in Japan by Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs on CD's with 24 karat gold layer. Original Master Recording from the original master tapes from Columbia Records vault.
Originally purchased by me from The Beat record store in Sacramento. This item is my 2nd copy, purchased as a back-up because, to me, this is the best-sounding CD of this recording. It does not have the click/pop at the beginning of the song "Comfortably Numb." Since I mostly listen to vinyl now, one copy of this recording on CD is sufficient for me. Stored in my non-smoking and no pet home, not in a hot storage space.
Very rare to find this item sealed, in a longbox. Acoustic Sounds has a similar item open, without longbox, and used for $395. An eBay seller has a similar item with packaging in slightly better condition for $599.99.
