*Because our clients are mostly jazz collectors and connoisseurs, as we are, we made it our policy to only sell vinyl that we grade in VERY GOOD (VG) condition or better.
This record is from our personal collection. Very well maintained.
Record Grade VG = Very well maintained. The vinyl has a few visible surface scratches on side b that have hardly any effect on the music other than an occasional pop. No jumps or skips after listening through twice. Just listened to both sides of the whole album this morning and it plays beautiful , very little surface noise. A few minor pops from normal use and age, nothing distracting. Difficult to find this rare vintage record in such great condition. (see pictures)
Jacket Grade VG+= Shiny, clean, well maintained. No stains. No tape. Minor corner dents. No seem splits. A stamp on top left rear jacket says "Radio City Music Shop", a famous record store from the 1950's and 1960's in Hempstead, New York. A very clean jacket for a 60 year old album. (see pictures)
