A quick note: I’ve just started this eBay username to try to separate out my main business - Vinyl Records - from the other items I'm selling. While this username is new and has little feedback, I’ve been on eBay for 18 years and I invite you to check my feedback under username webvinyl. Thanks!
Louis Smith -“Here Comes Louis Smith” Blue Note Records BLP 1584 (Mono) from 1958. Great Hard Bop Jazz Album from Louis Smith, one of only two albums he made! The band features Duke Jordan, Tommy Flanagan, Doug Watkins, Art Taylor and Cannonball Adderley recording under the name“Buckshot La Funke”. Deep Groove Label on each side, "Blue Note Records - 47 West 63rd - NYC" address on each label, No“Inc” or“R” on labels, "Blue Note Records, 47 West 63rd St., New York 23" back cover address,“RVG” Machine stamped in Dead Wax, Plastylite “Ear” etched in Dead Wax,“BN-LP-1584-A-1”and“BN-LP-1584-B-1”etched in Dead Wax on the respective sides.
The Laminated Sleeve shows a slight bit of basic shelf wear and maybe some super slight corner softening. There is an old sticker, I think from a radio station“Jazz At Midnight - WOOK 1340 On Your Dial”and a small“Q”ink stamp on the back cover. Beyond that, very solid with no splits, tears, writing, stains, etc.I would rate it as a at least a good VG+ and maybe better. The Vinyl itself is in nice Glossy condition. There are a few light sleeve scuffs and a couple small very light hairlines but overall very clean and should rateVG+ and plays well with just a little light groove noise in quiet spots. There are a couple very light spindle trails but the labels are otherwise Near Mint.

TERMS AND DEFINITIONS
Records are graded to the best of my ability to Goldmine Visual standards. If you are not familiar with this grading system (or even if you think you are!),
please check it out before bidding I have summarized the important (i.e. I think everyone knows what Mint means) points below in Goldmine's words:
Very Good Plus (VG+):
Record surfaces may show some slight signs of wear and may have slight scuffs or very light scratches that don't affect one's listening experience. Slight warps that do not affect the sound are OK.
Very Good (VG):
Surface noise will be evident upon playing,... Groove wear will start to be noticeable, as will light scratches (deep enough to feel with a fingernail) that will affect the sound.
I stand by my grades but would like us to be on the same page so no problems arise. I have been selling Vintage Vinyl for over twenty years on the net and I can count the returns I've had on one hand so I believe my grading is fair and accurate. One important note, I try to grade to these Goldmine guides as best as I can understand and apply them. This gives us both a written standard to go by rather than having to guess. But.... it also means that I don't issue refunds over differences of opinion in grading i.e. "That's not MY idea of a VG record!" - I don't know what your standards are and, as such, can't grade to them. I guarantee that items I sell will meet my description, nothing more or less! If you are not satisfied that a purchase meets my description, I will do what I can to make it right if you give me the chance and work with me! Please feel free to check my feedback.
