Ruido de fondo evidente sobre todo en pasajes calmados, aunque no supera el nivel de sonido propio del disco. Rayas que se dejan sentir. Portada con escritura, celofán, etc. // The record has been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality.Many of the defects found in an EX record will be more pronounced in a VG disc. Surface noise will be evident upon playing, especially in soft passages and during a song's intro and fade, but will not overpower the music otherwise. Groove wear will start to be noticeable, as with light scratches that will affect the sound. Sleeve may be marred by writing, or have tape attached.

Portada con desgarros, roturas… // A record in Good condition can be put onto a turntable and will play through without skipping.
