The White Stripes - Elephant (2xLP, Album, RE) (VG+ / VG+)

Third Man Records TMR200

Regular price £75.00

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Media Condition: Very Good Plus (VG+)
Sleeve Condition: Very Good Plus (VG+)

Lovely VG+ copy all around! Still in shrinkwrap but opened, with original price sticker on shrink top right corner. Sleeve only downgraded due to some light wear to corners from storage. Vinyl both in nice VG+ condition in original inner sleeves. Nice copy!

The White Stripes, like many other garage-rock rival bands found their commercial gain after a few near misses. 2003 fuzz-garage blues classic 'Elephant' can be found in every CD collection of pretty much anyone over the age of 25 and shows that the roots of plugged in guitar music finally reached it's full circle at the turn of the century. This special remaster from Third Man Records uses the original master tape in a beautifually presented double album repress! -Elliot, Dig Vinyl
