Dizzy Gillespie Afro mono Norgran 1003 Yellow label w/ trumpet and deep groove
Dizzy Gillespie (t), Lucky Thompson (ts), JJ Johnson (tb) Wade Legge (p), Charlie Persip (d) ETC Recorded 1954
Yellow label with trumpet and deep groove both sides. Frame style cover and no printing on spine. No address on back.
The record looks and plays M- with a few short, very quiet passages of VG++ due to the only slightly hissy Norgran vinyl. This is probably the best and quietest Norgran pressing I've heard. Record looks unplayed or nearly so. No scuffs and no scratches. Grooves look bright and glossy and do not show any wear or damage.
The cover is VG++.
The David Stone Martin art looks great. The front cover is shiny with very light wear and an app 1/4 inch long line where the slick is rubbed away. The back cover is bright and glossy with little or no wear. No split seams. Moderate to heavy wear on the bottom seam and spine. Small spots of denting and wear at the corners.
IN SEPTEMBER, I WILL BACK AND BE RUNNING MONTHLY AUCTIONS OF 50s and 60s JAZZ LPS INC BLUE NOTE, PRESTIGE, NEW JAZZ RIVERSIDE etc. MANY WEEKS AND MANY NICE ITEMS TO COME.
My highest grade is M- and I rarely grade 50s or 60s records M-. Records are graded visually using the Goldmine system. M-, VG++, VG+, VG, VG- etc. I play grade any potential problem areas. I attempt to grade conservatively, listing all significant flaws. You will be satisfied. No hassles.
