Hi, I have a copy of this 12" as this release .. http://www.discogs.com/Light-Contrastin ... se/5327865

I'll have to check but it should still be in VG/Ex condition if you're interested ?

Hi Xymox,
I had a dip into my archive & the years have been a little harsher than I'd hoped, but I Am quite critical as i would not wish to disappoint.

Image Image Image Image Image

The cover has slight signs of ringing (due to its' years amongst many other 80s 12" singles) slight creases to top edge (visible in pics) but not surface damaged & some aging to the edges. The corners aren't dogeared & nothing unexpected for a record of over 30 years vintage.
so I would only fairly grade the sleeve as VG, but the vinyl is Very good/ Excellent condition, only very slight surface marks & plays well with very little noise on the run-in groove.
I don't have any professional cleaning available to me just an anti-static cloth, so I'm sure it'll clean-up further but if you'll excuse the rumble from my old 80s linear deck, any introduced wow & flutter is from that as the pressing is well centered.
Image For your discerning, here's genuine untouched playback of the intro... http://www.mediafire.com/download/lhyblq1vvwd3s4b/Contrasting_Strangers_%28intro%29_-_The_Light.rar

Make me an offer & I'll look into the cost of postage to Croatia Image

EDIT/ Royal Mail (will be tracked) costs £8.60 + I'd also want about £2.50 for packing it securely.

thanks for digging out this gem from your collection.

You really made an effort in describing the condition in detail and I would gladly make you an offer right away, but the price of postage is really way way too high (IMHO).

I have been buying loads of 80s 12" vinyl during 2015 through discogs.com, mainly from a seller in France, who give me free shipping in return for large orders.
Recently, I was able to find a UK seller who would give me the same conditions as well.

So I although I want this record a lot and know that is very highly valued on discogs as a rarity, I guess you could understand that I am not prepared to pay in postage costs what I would normally pay for this particular record alone.

I can only hope I will find it someday in one of the big collections from European sellers and the costs of postage will be reasonable, if any at all.....

Best regards

Xymox970


I really sympathise, :roll: your search continues Image

it's not quite the same as,

Is it ?


I can't help what the cost of safe postage to Croatia is :oops:
but I can offer you something for free that the other suppliers may not be saying to you...
