JOHN LEE HOOKER – URBAN BLUES – RARE ORIGINAL 1967 ABC-BLUESWAY
STEREO LP BLS-6012
ORIGINAL TURQUOISE (AQUA-BLUE) ABC-BLUESWAY
LABEL WITH BLACK PRINT (NOTE: BLACK LABELS WITH BLUE COLORBANDS ARE SECOND
PRESSINGS CIRCA 1969)
THIS IS THE ORIGINAL, AUTHENTIC, FIRST U.S. PRESSING; THIS IS
NOT A REISSUE, AN IMPORT, OR A COUNTERFEIT PRESSING.
ORIGINAL, THICK CARDBOARD COVER (AMERICAN STYLE)
CLEAN, WEAR-FREE LABELS
THICK, HEAVY VINYL
(►PLEASE SEE THE IMAGE OF THE COVER, LABEL
OR BOTH, SHOWN BELOW)
this is a REAL image of the ACTUAL item you are bidding on. This
is NOT a "recycled" image from our previous auction. What you see is what you’ll
This is the Boogie Man's
1967 ABC-BluesWay album in its entirety. Hooker's Chicago sidemen (including
Eddie Taylor, Wayne Bennett, and Louis Myers) deftly handle Hooker's
eccentricities on "Mr. Lucky," and the harrowing "The Motor City
Is Burning," as well as a sprightly remake of "Boom Boom."

unless otherwise noted, ALL records are graded visually, and NOT play-graded!;
we grade records under the strong,
diffuse room light or discrete sunlight)
WE GRADE THE VINYL AS (WEAK) NEAR MINT.
Some VERY LIGHT AND SUPERFICIAL abrasions – mostly sleeve scuffs - are (barely) visible, but are probably
inaudible, and do not affect visual
integrity or beauty of the vinyl. The original luster is very much intact, and
the vinyl shines and sparkles almost like new.
The record comes in the original stock inner sleeve.
The record is pressed on a beautiful, thick, inflexible vinyl, which
was usually used for the first or very early pressings. Usually, the sound on
such thick vinyl pressings is full-bodied, vivid, and even dramatic. Do not
expect to obtain such a majestic analog sound from a digital recording!
Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not
an inferior, digital recording!!!
THE COVER IS NICE --- ABOUT VERY GOOD++ (VG++).
The following flaws or
imperfections are noted on the cover:
Cover has some visible ring wear; On the scale from 1 to 10
(1 being the least, and 10 being the
most severe), we assess the severity of ring wear as 5 (front side) and 4 (back side).
The cover has a few tiny scratch marks on both sides.
Back cover has circular tarnish (grayish, dust-covered
sections, which closely follow the contour of the record), probably caused by friction or by rubbing
against other covers during the storage. The tarnish is similar in appearance
to a common ring wear, but, UNLIKE ring wear, these grayish areas may be
possible to clean up with a minor effort and with a right cleansing solution.
Cover shows some light yellowing on both sides, apparently
from aging (nothing significant).
Cover has a few tiny wrinkles along the spine
Visible shelf wear noted on the top and bottom seams
NO OTHER VISIBLE FLAWS OR IMPERFECTIONS ON THE COVER
