Item Description

MY ANNUAL VACATION TIME IS APPROACHING! Once a year during August & September I stop selling on eBay, so there will be an extended time when I have no listings. It is a time when I take my computer to my technician and have it cleaned, updated and get it's annual tune up. Also, it's a much needed break away from the Internet for me. I plan on returning to my regular scheduled sales around the end of September, 2015. I thank all of you who regularly visit my listings and look forward to hearing from you upon my return. I will have some great items ready to list upon my return to include a large (over 5000 LP's) super clean classic rock (60's - 90's) and blues collection that I've been commissioned to sell plus the continuation of the vintage jazz LP collection I've been listing. Thank you all very much!

Superb clean play original LP from 1959 by modern jazz trumpet player Lee Morgan titled The Cooker. Album also feature Pepper Adams, sax; Bobby Timmons, piano; Paul Chambers, bass and Joe Jones, drums. Issued on Blue Note Records 1578 mono deep groove. Vinyl is very clean vg+ in appearance with light superficial scuff on each side, bright groove luster and plays a very quiet and clean vg+ with mostly no extraneous noise. Label is near mint with no spindle scuffs and cover is very acceptable vg with some storage wear, minor surface tear at mouth and front, has no splits, no writing and no stickers. Vinyl is VPI wet vac cleaned and in high density lined inner sleeve.

All individually listed LP's (non-lot) are shipped with vinyl out of jacket, with both vinyl & jacket in clear poly protective cover

The album(s) included in this auction have all been professionally cleaned with a VPI HW-17 record cleaning machine (except those that are still sealed). I don't mind rational inquiries and questions that are pertinent to my individual auction listings, but please, before contacting me with any question, read my entire item description and my auction related information.

Thank you.

Currently all my sales are only through ebay auctions. I do not accept want lists or special requests. Most of my items I list are contracted with owner to sell only at auction.

All records are professionally packaged and most are shipped in my custom designed heavy duty cardboard LP mailers, inside dimensions are 13 x 13 inches. Non bulk lot records are removed from cover to prevent any possible seam damage during shipping, except for sealed new stock items (I will open and remove sealed LP's only if requested). Non bulk records are bubble wrapped and are protected with stiff heavy duty cardboard flats extending beyond album size to protect corners. Larger bulk shipments are all shipped in new boxes designed to accomodate records and packaging. I do not skimp on packaging in order to save a few cents on shipping cost. Thank you.

I place emphasis on play grade, maintain the highest professional standards, do spot check play grading on all individual auction items and always provide an accurate visual grade and label appearance. I play grade on a quality system with a high end cartridge in order to maintain a strict and undisguised play grade. I always keep my grading simple and fair and will not subject my customers to a proliferation of meaningless grades. If a record plays between two grades I always apply the lesser grade, I don't create a grade in an attempt to articulate a borderline evaluation.
nm....near mint, superb play quality with little to no signs of visual wear and plays with little to no extraneous noise. I have learned from over 30 years of experience that "mint" is too strong a grade for a used record evaluation. The only records that qualify for a "mint" grade on my listings are my new unplayed and unhandled store stock items.
vg+...very good plus, excellent play quality with minor use and little to no overall visual wear. Any minor scuffs, light surface scratches, or blemishes do not affect play and play grade may have some very minor extraneous area noise.
vg....very good, very playable, probably with some extraneous surface noise. A slightly mishandled or well used record. May have visual scratches or blemish. I generally do not auction vg albums unless they are exceptional pieces and highly sought after items.
I use standard record grading abbreviations and include cover grade within each description. I open, clean and inspect all suspect sealed older albums.
Retail music is my full time occupation. Your satisfaction is important to me. I guarantee everything I sell and will be cooperative and understanding towards any of my valued customers who genuinely feel I may have not maintained my grading standards, have overlooked a flaw or manufacturing defect, or have mistakenly misrepresented an item. Postage with insurance for a returned item is buyers responsibility, returned item must be received in same condition as originally shipped and dispute console mutual agreement not to puchase must be agreed and completed in order for me to receive credit for final value fees I accrued. I will always conduct my business in a fair, courteous and repectful manner towards all my valued customers.
