This record came to me from a collector who bought it from an old radio-station man in Florida. It looks like it's seen very little play--it has full shine and no groove wear--but it also looks like it went a long time without being housed in a sleeve. Both sides have a lot of light scratches (see third scan, above), though nothing deep or problematic--given the shine and the scratches, call it VG overall. I've included entirely unmanipulated, complete MP3s of both sides, and, though you can hear the familiar Sun records background wash (which is audible even on Mint copies, as it's an artifact of the pressing, not the condition of the vinyl), the sound is excellent, with only minimal sounds coming from the record's condition, and the music and vocals upfront and vibrant throughout. Labels show very little wear, A-side label has a discreet stain just to the left of the letter S in Sun (see scan).Those typically come out of someone's closet, where they have lain untouched for decades. While those pristine copies are indeed amazing, there's something about this copy, with its evidence of the real-life grit of the country's and rock and roll's past, that strikes me as more interesting than those. This is not only an extraordinary piece of rock and roll history, but also an extraordinary piece of American cultural history. Very, very cool, and a unique copy of what may be the most important record ever released.
MINT- Perfect or virtually perfect. VG+ Light marks, full shine, great looking record.VG Still fairly shiny but clearly a used record, light scratches, will play well but with some surface noise. VG- Played or used more heavily, lots of scratches, more pronounced surface noise, but still plays through okay.
