Item Description

Be sure to look at my other auctions!  I have many great titles in top condition for sale this week!
Format: 12" 33rpm lpArtist:  Lee Morgan
Title: City Lights
Label/Catalog #:  Blue Note BLP 1575 
Mono/Stereo: Mono
Details:    This lp has been cleaned on a KLaudio ultrasonic cleaner.  This is a very rare 1st pressing of this classic.  Side 1 label reads 47 West 63rd St., side 2 reads 47 West 63rd St. New York 23.  RVG stamped, DG, Ear. 
This also comes with the original blank paper inner sleeve that was issued at the time.  It's difficult to show in photos, but I assure you this is the case.  Consult London Jazz Collector for further info on these blank inner sleeves.
Record condition:  Visually a strong VG+ and plays VG++.  Very clean copy, just a few light marks on either side.  The entire album is play graded and it sounds marvelous, easily VG++.  One of the finer copies you will ever find.
Cover:  EX+   Exceptionally clean cover.  Seams are nearly perfect, just the tiniest chipping to corners.  This is about the only flaw to mention, front and back present beautifully.  An incredible set!
Labels: Clean
