Item Description

Artist / Info: Roland Kirk Triple Threat King 539 Original 1956 pressing of the Jazz Holy Grail!! Deep groove both sides. Flat edge pressing! This is one of the finest examples of Roland Kirk playing three instruments at one time! You know what you're looking at. I will spare you my creative writing and just let you bid.
INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS MUST PAY FOR INSURANCE ON THIS ITEM!!
Record: Strong VG visually and plays better! Like most King pressings of this time era do, this album plays wonderfully! Sound quality is great and it's easy to distinguish all the horns playing at once! Surface noise can be heard but always in the background, never bad. There are light hairline marks and one long visual mark on Side 2, none deep and none lead to more surface noise. This is a beautiful sounding copy! Good luck to all bidders!
Cover: VG+ Front and back graphics look great! Seams have some wear but no splits, see pictures.
Labels: Clean

Grading scale:


  • Near Mint (NM or M-)
    The record should show no obvious signs of wear. A 45 RPM or EP sleeve should have no more than the most minor defects, such as almost invisible ring wear or other signs of slight handling.
    An LP cover should have no creases, folds, seam splits or other noticeable similar defects. No cut-out holes, either. And of course, the same should be true of any other inserts, such as posters, lyric sleeves and the like.


EX: Better than VG++ but not quite Mint Minus. Will be extremely clean with only a couple very, very light marks which will not effect play.


VG++ Stronger than VG+. A very clean album that may have some very light surface wear. Will play with the occasional light tick but never louder than the music itself, a very enjoyable listening experience.


  • Very Good Plus (VG+)
    A Very Good Plus record will show some signs that it was played and otherwise handled by a previous owner who took good care of it.
    Record surfaces may show some signs of wear and may have slight scuffs or very light scratches that don't affect one's listening experiences. Slight warps that do not affect the sound are "OK".
    The label may have some ring wear or discoloration, but it should be barely noticeable. The center hole will not have been misshapen by repeated play.
    Picture sleeves and LP inner sleeves will have some slight wear, lightly turned up corners, or a slight seam split. An LP cover may have slight signs of wear also and may be marred by a cut-out hole, indentation or corner indicating it was taken out of print and sold at a discount.

  • Very Good (VG) Many of the defects found in a VG+ record will be more pronounced in a VG disc. Surface noise will be evident upon playing, especially in soft passages and during a song's intro and fade, but will not overpower the music otherwise. Groove wear will start to be noticeable, as with light scratches (deep enough to feel with a fingernail) that will affect the sound.
    Labels may be marred by writing, or have tape or stickers (or their residue) attached. The same will be true of picture sleeves or LP covers. However, it will not have all of these problems at the same time, only two or three of them.

  • Good (G), Good Plus (G+) A record in Good or Good Plus condition can be put onto a turntable and will play through without skipping. But it will have significant surface noise and scratches and visible groove wear (on a styrene record, the groove will be starting to turn white).
    A cover or sleeve will have seam splits, especially at the bottom or on the spine. Tape, writing, ring wear or other defects will start to overwhelm the object.
