***I got an email saying a few things about this LP. I went ahead and opened it up to view it. I see NO signs of a re-issue on this LP regardless of what the person said. I am adding two more pics of the label. In the black center the following numbers are etched. Side A: BN-LP-1568-A and Side B is: BN-LP-1568-B. The addresses are different as well. Side one has: Blue Note Records 47 West 63rd-NYC and Side two has: Blue Note Records 47 West 63rd- New York 23 (with New York spelled out). The emailer told me this is a re-issue but I see no evidence of that. The place I bought it from said Original. From what I was told, the re-issues have an "R" on them, and there is NO "R" to be found. I asked around and sent emails and pictures trying to get this verified. Here's a response on the record and I think I understand what this person is trying to say. Judging by the amount of people sitting on this thing and watching it, I think this person is right. :
Dear Seller -- Based on the close up photos, it's quite obvious that you're listing an ORIGINAL DOUBLE SIDED DEEP GROOVED version of this LP, so don't let potential bidders fool you, in giving it away, off listing, for pennies. In fact, you do have a PRECIOUS GEM, and it certainly will fetch for over ***** on eBay. About two weeks ago, a similar LP, that's in NEAR MINT codition, as well as a great jacket, without the registration R, on labels, has been sold, here on eBay, for over *****. Yours seem to be even better, considering you only opened it up, just for verification. Also, keep in mind that ONLY about 500 of those, double sided deep grooved, with the New York 23 addresses, on sides TWO, were pressed on the FIRST PRESSING RUN, and they're even more sought after. The others were later pressed, and they do NOT have the New York 23 addresses on sides Two. I'm definitely watching your auctioin, just to see how much it will go for. I wish to remain anonymous. Good luck!
So this is now an Opened copy but never played! Vinyl is heavy and in MINT never played condition!
Here are the tracks:
Side 1 (BN 1568-A) (1) Mighty Moe & Joe (2) Falling In Love With Love (3) Bags' Groove
Side 2 (BN 1568-B) (1) Double Exposure (2) News
Due to the extreme high fees that Paypal as well as Ebay charges, I will NOT except Paypal on this auction! Blame them, not me. The fees they charge take away from me and you and on an item like this, I'm not willing to deal with it.
I will ONLY accept Cashier's Check, Business/Personal Check with a bank letter of guarantee. If a Paypal payment is made, I "WILL" return it due to the fees they charge. If you want to send another payment just to pay their high fees, then we might talk about Paypal, until then, no Paypal on this particular auction!!! I will ship the album upon clearance of payment.
Payment expected within 5 days of auction end. Please notify me within 24 hours of winning of your intentions. As noted above, If you so wish to use Paypal, then expect for me to require YOU to pay their fees. I'm not going to. That will include a seperate payment to cover their fees. I would recommend the suggested payment options. A cashiers check usually cost $5 at your bank.
CASHIERS CHECK or Business/Personal Check with a bank Letter of Guarantee ONLY on this auction!!!
As-Is auction! No warranty or guarantee implied whatsoever on any of my auctions. please read the entire description and ask ANY questions before bidding.
SERIOUS BIDDERS ONLY!!! IF YOU CAN'T FOLLOW THROUGH OR PAY, THEN DON'T EVEN CLICK "WATCH"!!! IF YOU HAVE ZERO FEEDBACK OR NEGATIVE FEEDBACK, PLEASE EMAIL ME FIRST FOR PERMISSION TO BID OR YOU MAY BE CANCELLED. THIS IS A ONE TIME LISTING, SO I WANT SOMEONE WHO REALLY WANTS THIS ALBUM TO HAVE A CHANCE. NO DEADBEAT BIDDERS!!!!
GOOD LUCK and Happy Bidding!
On Apr-24-07 at 10:48:28 PDT, seller added the following information:Seller has instructed me to add that he will give the buyer 7 days (from receipt of delivery) to inspect this record and/or have it inspected. He isn't a professional collector and wants the buyer to know that this record can be returned (Buyer to pay shipping & handling fees) if the record is found to be other than described. Please note that the seller is unavailable due to an illness and I don't know much about this Ebay stuff in general, so I'm not going to be much help either. Hopefully this return policy will ease some minds.
