Well...it's still sealed. LOL! However, the packaging was perfect Truth be told, I have this album in multiple itineration's. I still have my original vinyl copy from the 80's, a sealed one from the 80's, the black 180 gram version and this minty fresh white vinyl version. Not to mention two copies on CD and access in HD quality on Qobuz anytime I want it. Still remember the first day I heard Tom Sawyer... I was working at A&G (Agg n Gagg) Cafeteria at Southland Mall in Houma, Louisiana (my first job) in the summer the album came out, saving up for a dirt bike, when it came over the restaurant loudspeakers. I was floored! Right after work on payday, walked around the corner to the record store in the mall and bought the album. THAT is the original one I still have to this day. It's seen countless needle strikes from the various turntables I've owned since then and still brings back some awesome memories. If there is a "GOAT" for albums...(and bands), this is the one and they are it. My white vinyl one will stay sealed...as a lasting tribute to two of my all time faves...album and band!
