"Elvis Presley" Stunning 1st pressing from 1956. A Closer Look at the Item. All following records come from a recently acquired super Elvis collection, check these out, many years since I have seen a collection of this merit.Start things off with one of the nicest original "Elvis Presley" albums I have ever had the pleasure of officer. This LP is the real first pressing, it has the "ELVIS" on the front cover in pale pink, and the front and back cover are in perfect shape, just in wonderful beautiful shape. Spine is also is amazing shape, see picture, clear and sound like new. Top and bottom edges are also near mint, very lightest hint of wear, this album is amazingly close to stone mint.
The record is also in great shape, all the gloss of new, hint of wear when tilted to a bright light, this one also has the label that lists the sonwriters on "Just Because" as PD (Public Domain) of course which was not correct and changed on all future pressings to the true songwriters. This one also has the original onion paper inner sleeves is really really great shape as well. All records are packaged outside their covers to prevent any sort of ring wear from developing or seam splits in transit.We pride ourselves on continually bringing the best in Elvis Presley vinyl and other great collectables, compare and see, this is the #1 stop for Elvis collectors worldwide. MUSIC ANIMATION BY KALI MARCUM. Mint Minus (M-): A nearly perfect record and cover.
This item should show no readily visible signs of wear, covers and sleeves should have no more than nearly invisible rings or other signs of slight wear and vinyl should still be completely glossy and shiney, just the very lightest hint of wear if it is tilted to very bright light. Very Good Plus (VG+): This record will show some signs that it was played and otherwise handled carefully by the previous owner. Record surfaces will show some light signs of paper scuffing or light scratches, that don't affect the listening experience. Slight warps that do not affect sound are OK. This disc should still contain much of its original luster and sheen.
The covers and picture sleeves should also be in very nice shape, they may have light ring wear or other signs of wear, may have a small cut out hole, indention or stamping present. Also there can be non obvious writing on the paper goods. Very Good (VG): Many of the defects found in the VG+ record and cover will be present but more pronounced in the VG item. Surface noise will be evident, although the record should play through without skipping or repeating.
Groove wear will now be noticable, scuffing and light scratching will be appearent, a scratch now can be felt with a fingernail. Labels will be marred with tape or tape residue, stickers or descret writing.
The same will be true for the LP cover or picture sleeve. Good (G): Good does not mean bad! A record in good condition should be placed on a turntable and it should play through, all though the surface noise will be evident. A cover or picture sleeve will have seam splitting, especially on the bottom seam or spine. Also there will be noticable ring wear caused by the presence of the record.The defects will start to overwhere this item. Fair (F) or Poor (P): This record will be cracked, badly warped, and will not play through without skipping or repeating. The picture sleeeve or LP cover will show lots and lots of wear, the seams will be split on all three sides barely able to hold the record. This item will appear near valueless, unless of course it is a rarity that may not be seen again.
