Kenny Dorham Round About Midnight 1st PLAYS GREAT Flat Edge Lex Blue Note lp
Be sure to look at my other auctions! I have many great titles for sale this week.
Format: 12" 33rpm lp
Artist: Kenny Dorham
Title: Round About Midnight
Label/Catalog #: Blue Note BLP 1524
Details: 1st pressing. 767 Lexington labels, flat edge disc, frame front cover, deep groove, RVG etched, ear mark. This lp has been cleaned on a Klaudio ultrasonic cleaner.
Record condition: Visually VG- side 1 and VG side 2 but plays close to EX! One of the nicest players I've ever heard for it's visual state. Side 1 has 3 scratches which are lightly felt, side 2 light marks only. Both sides play VG+ to EX throughout. Track 2 side 1 has some light repetitive clicks heard briefly, and gently heard. The rest of the album plays nearly free of surface noise with perfect audio clarity. Play grade is guaranteed, it's honestly tough to part with this copy.
Cover: VG Front cover looks great. Clear tape on lower seam. Moisture stain and discoloring to back cover. Heavier rubbing to top seam and spine but no splits or repairs.
Labels: See photos
