FORMAT: 7" 45 RPM Record
ARTIST: John Lee Hooker
TITLE: Money / Bottle Up And Go
CATALOG #: 242
SLEEVE: Plain white
DETAILS: Rare original R&B Blues 45. Has some light scuffs and hairlines, looks rarely played and sounds great as can be heard in the clips. Each label has a small stain (see scans). Comes in a plain white sleeve. Listen to both sides of the actual record for sale below. All 45's are original presses, no repros or boots. Check my other auctions for more soul 45's.
Records are visually and strictly graded cover/disc. All records are original U.S. pressings unless noted. Most 45's are cleaned on a professional Nitty Gritty record cleaner, covers are cleaned and shipped in a new clear plastic sleeve. I DO NOT sell records covered with dirt and fingerprints. Feel free to email me with any questions.
REFUND POLICY: All items are guaranteed to be as described or full refund (less postage). Refunds will only be given after return shipment and inspection. I am not responsible for any damage caused by the postal service. All records are packed extremely well.
I ship on Saturdays and once or twice during the week if time permits.
PAYMENT may be made by Paypal. Payment must be received within 7 days of auction end, or I may re-list the item. Multple record sets count as multiple items when calculating postage.
POSTAGE/PACKAGING: All 45’s are shipped in a new custom 45 mailer from Bags Unlimited with cardboard fillers. I do not use the free US Post Office priority mailers for records. Postage rates are the same for any US location, and the cost of the mailer is included in the fee. International rates vary by country.
U.S.: Shipping for one 45 via first class mail with delivery confirmation is a flat rate of $4.00. Add $1.00 for each additional 45.
SALES TAX: New York State Residents must pay 8% sales tax on the total amount INCLUDING shipping.
I DO NOT SHIP TO ITALY DUE TO PROBLEMS WITH THE ITALIAN POSTAL SERVICE.
ALL PACKAGES MUST BE SHIPPED TO THE BUYER’S VERIFIED PAYPAL ADDRESS. THIS IS EBAY’S REQUIREMENT TO PROTECT BOTH THE BUYER AND SELLER.

CUSTOMS: Import duties, taxes or customs charges are not included in the price or shipping charges. These charges are the responsibility of the buyer. Please check with your country's customs office to inquire about these additional costs before bidding.
Government regulations prohibit labeling merchandise as a "gift", and packages will not be labeled as such. Please do not ask me to do so as it is a violation of postal regulations.

GRADING: If there are two grades, cover is graded first, then the record. All records are graded visually unless otherwise noted. I use the following grades:
NM (Near Mint): My highest grade. Record looks like new and quite possibly unplayed.
VG++ (Very Good Plus Plus): Record may have some visual imperfections such as sleeve scuffs or storage wear that should not affect the sound. Should play almost like a near mint record, or possibly as good as a near mint record.
VG+ (Very Good Plus): A well taken care of record, but will show signs of play or handling. It will have light scuffs or hairlines, but the sound should be clear with minimal surface noise.
VG (Very Good): A VG record will show more wear, but is still an enjoyable record. There may be some clicks and pops, but surface noise will not overpower the music. Noise will be most noticeable in quieter parts.
VG- (Very Good Minus): There may be deeper scratches at this grade, most likely feelable with a fingernail. It will play with some clicks and pops, but still enjoyable with no skipping or repeating.
G (Good): I try not to list records in this grade. It will have heavy wear and surface noise will most likely be evident throughout, but will not skip. Any record in this grade will be play graded.
SS (Still Sealed): Unopened in the original shrinkwrap. Any cover defects will be noted in the item description.
NM (Near Mint): A NM cover will look like it was just taken home from the store. It may have a minor defect such as a lightly bumped corner or signs of careful handling. There will be NO seam splits, tears, stickers, sticker residue or other flaws.
VG++ (Very Good Plus Plus): A cover in this grade will be very close to NM, but has some minor defects which barely hold it back. It may have a cutout mark, slightly bumped corners, the beginning of ringwear or very light edgewear. There are no seam splits or major problems. My VG++ is similar to many dealer's NM grade.
VG+ (Very Good Plus): A VG+ cover will show more signs of careful handling, but defects will be slightly more pronounced. There may be light ringwear, lightly bent corners, small seam splits, small writing or light edgewear and flaking. This grade is above average and is more than acceptable to all but the pickiest of collectors.
VG (Very Good): A VG Cover will have problems which are slightly more pronounced than a VG+ cover. Ringwear may be more noticeable, corners and edges may be dulled or lightly frayed, small writing, sticker pulls or a small tear. A VG cover isn't trashed, but isn't perfect either.
G(Good): See item description
F(Fair): See item Description
