Atlantic 968 Austin Powell & The James Quintet - Wrong Again, R&B 7" 1952 VG+
This is part of a big auction of mainly early Atlantic 45's I'm running this week. There are a few cool bonus listings as well. Take a look at these and keep an eye out for a small label auction starting 9/11 as well.
Here's the info on this item:
Release: Austin Powell - Wrong Again / What More Can I Ask
Format: 45 rpm 7" single
Notes: Original 1st pressing of one of the grails of early 50's R&B. Gorgeous ballads on both sides, in a doo-wop style with more R&B style backing. Super hard to find on 7" and one that rarely comes up for sale. This is one of only two records Powell released and the only one with the James Quintet. This is also the only single ever released by the James Quintet.
Vinyl Condition: VG+, vinyl itself is in great shape with no noticeable scratches or scuffs. It does have some light hazing from liquid exposure. Play tested on AT-LP120 & both sides play very well with almost no background noise at all. No pops/ticks/skips, etc. Labels are very nice with original gloss and no writing/tears, just a hint of scuffing, but even that's being picky. See pics, but this is a really copy overall - sounds amazing!
Sleeve: The sleeves on most of the records I'm selling were in bad shape due to liquid exposure. I have replaced them with period-correct, original vintage sleeves that I had as extras. They are the proper sleeves for the records, but not the actual sleeve that was sold with the particular record. All are in nice shape with just light wrinkling and no tears or splits.
I want buying from me to be a good experience for you. I also know that condition can be very subjective, so I encourage you to see pics for exact condition details and ask questions if you need additional information. As always, the item you see is the one you will get. Please see my feedback, I think that will show that I am an accurate and fair grader and make sure my customers are happy.
I will combine shipping for anyone who wins more than one item. If you do need combined shipping, please wait for an invoice before paying.
