All international orders will show the final sale price on the label. No items will be "marked as a gift", falsifying a sale price is illegal - please do not ask. Goldmine Standard Grading: SS / NM- / VG++ / VG+ / VG / G+ / G / P I grade conservatively. For more details concerning grades, please see my scale below the record description. I've included all the info with pics and sound files below to provide a better idea of the condition.
Please read further for more details. VG+ (7 to 7.5 / 10). This is a conservative grade. Cleaned on a 16.5 VPI machine.This is a full play grade. There are light sleeve scuffs and light marks, none detectable to the touch. Some light background noise along the way but overall a very enjoyable listen. Looks exactly as the pictures indicate.
Song 6, side 1 credited to P. Overall rather clean with light needle tracks.
Matrix photos indicate the pressing. I've included sound clips below, please listen carefully for an accurate sample of the record during actual playback. This is a full play grade! Labels look exactly as pictured. Please judge the playback for yourself at the full clip below.I use a Pioneer PL-530 direct drive with an Empire Cartridge / Stylus 1200 ED setup.

Rather nice original cover here. Print crack at top corner at mouth, not open though.Other edges look great, quite nice and sharp. Spine print looks great as shown. Light foxing to the cover overall due to age. Bright color on the front cover. Back print also in nice shape. Copyrighted 1956 on the back. Please see the pictures and inspect them carefully for the best idea of condition. Record ships outside the cover in a new plain paper sleeve, all inside an outer poly sleeve.
Original inner sleeve is included. Please inspect the pictures well for something I may have missed mentioning. I've enjoyed the record while I've owned it, its time to let it go to make room for more acquisitions.I try to be conservative when grading, I hope my description was sufficient. I do the very best I can to properly describe every record I sell and take record collecting very seriously.
