I spent $41 to have a "near mint" copy sent to me by a record search service.
With a stroke of luck, I just received a still-sealed promotional Monarch pressing of WARM. The shrink wrap looked authentically aged, so I'm pretty sure it's not a re-seal, and the disc itself looks pristine with no signs of spindle marks at all.
In fact, this pressing wasn't listed on Discogs, so I've just uploaded some pictures and details:

I've not yet had a chance to get it on the turntable, but will in the coming day(s), when I get a chance. The main reason of course for getting this vinyl as close to perfect is due to the supremely disappointing sound of "The Sea Is My Soil" in all digital forms. Starting with the Shout files reissue, and continuing through the HAP CD release and even the HERB ALPERT IS... version, the track suffers from what I'll call "mangled-tape syndrome." Original vinyl does not have that of course, so even though I have a very clean LP, this one might be just that notch better. We'll see.
