out of Jackson Mississippi's
Elmo (Elmore) James
Nice V++ Condition, good gloss, light wear
But strong player loud and clear, light background
More rubs and scuffs than scratches
Light Needle Wear 'Broom' side.
Nice playing copy.
no major defects to speak of.
The B-Side Catfish Blues
was my favorite Elmore James song
for quite some time until I found out
its actually Bobo Thomas, incorrectly credited to
Elmo James, a top side no doubt. Went on
to be covered by Jimi, etc.
Of course Dust My Broom has Robert
Johnson relations. Some have hypothesized
this is what Robert Johnson would have sounded
like had he lasted long enough to
Either way, this is a record with deep roots
and is a deep root itself in many ways.
Must have Blues 78

I like the VJM grading system for 78
- N. As new
and unplayed (there are virtually no 78s that can categorically be claimed
to be unplayed).
Nearly Mint, but has been played. No visible signs of wear or damage.
- E+. Plays
like new, with very, very few signs of handling, such as tiny scuffs from
being slipped in and out of jackets.
- E . Still
very shiny, near new looking, with no visible signs of wear, but a few
inaudible scuffs and scratches.
- E-. Still
shiny but without the lustre of a new record, few light scratches.
- V+. An
average condition 78 in which scuffs and general use has dulled the finish
somewhat. Wear is moderate but playing is generally free from distortion.
Surface noise not overly pronounced
Moderate, even wear throughout, but still very playable. Surface noise and
scratches audible but not intrusive.
- V-. Quite
playable still, but distortion and heavy greying in loud passages.Music
remains loud in most passages.Surface noise and scratches well below
- G+. Grey
throughout but still serviceable. Music begins to sound muffled. Heavy
- G. Quite
seriously worn and scratched, but music level is still higher than surface
- G-. Music
still prominent, but wear and scratch damage extensive.
- F. Most
of music remains audible over surface noise, but listening now
