Media Condition: Near Mint (NM or M-)
Sleeve Condition: Very Good Plus (VG+)
Comments: Records look unplayed, there is just a very small bite(almost imperceptible – 1mm wide) on the external part of the first silent groove on the external wax(it doesn’t really affect the use of the record in any way). Covers are close to Near Mint. With Insert! Ask for pictures!

The audiophile label VTL (often stylised as ViTaL) launched by David Manley in ca. 1989 as a showcase for his Vacuum Tube Logic of America, Inc. high-end equipment manufacturing company.
VTL is an American manufacturer of high-end tube amplifiers and microphones founded in 1987 (initially based in Rhode Island and with roots in England, also under the VTL brand) founded by David Manley and his eldest son, Luke. In ca. 1989 it spawned the Vital Records (11) label and the Manley Laboratories, to showcase the sound of his recording equipment and demonstrate his minimalist live-to-2-track recording techniques. The studio: he built a 30 x 40 ft. room with a 16 foot high cathedral ceiling; the studio was built from the ground up, Manley designed and built every element of the recording-, playback- & monitor-chain.
Between 1991 and 1993 VTL/Vital records/Vacuum Tube Logic of America, Inc. relased some outstanding audiophile „state-of-the-art“ recordings on CD and vinyl.
The double-vinyl was not released in a gatefold-cover but came in 2 seperate cover.
