LOUIS ARMSTRONG - PLAYS W.C. HANDY - COLUMBIA - TRUE FIRST PRESSING - VG++
LOUIS ARMSTRONG - PLAYS W.C. HANDY - COLUMBIA - TRUE FIRST PRESSING! - VG++ - much, much harder to find than the 6-eye pressing, sound is why we mess around with pressings made as close to when the music was actually recorded - this will be the most inexpensive time machine you ever buy!!
"Louis Armstrong Plays W. C. Handy" - Louis Armstrong - Columbia CL 591 (first mono pressing!, DG, maroon labels, 1A stampers) - VG+ (strong) - audio is amazing, very, very light, intermittent surface noise from careful use over the years - this is the real deal and it puts you practically inside his horn - eerie! - a verified classic LP and must-have / VG+, normal edge/rubbing wear, yellowing, crease
VINYL GRADE FIRST / FOLLOWED BY COVER GRADE - EXAMPLE - VG+ (strong) / VG+ (strong) - my vinyl grading is based on sound not sight!! - I dont usually mention surface scratches or marks unless they sound or are present in abundance. If in doubt ask.
I am beginning to list the core of what has been my personal jazz LP collection - lovingly built up over the past ten years or more. Most of these LPs are NM- or close to it. Many first pressings, Japanese pressings, promo copies. All the most coveted jazz labels - Blue Note, Impulse, Prestige, Riverside, Jazzland, Steeplechase, Candid, and more!! I will be listing these LPs in batches of 50 LP each week until they are gone!! Bid heavy and bid often.
I am a longtime collector of jazz LPs. The LPs have been play-graded. I rarely will use NM- (my highest grade for an opened LP) and and differentiate between VG+ and VG with additional language such as (strong), (solid), and weak). I am known for my conservative grading - just check my feedback!! Grades are vinyl first, then cover.
I know how to package and ship LPs safely and only use LP cardboard mailers with added cardboard inserts or bubblewrap. All LPs are in sleeves and have already been removed from their covers for shipment. I do not overcharge for shipping and will combine LPs to save you shipping costs. I have the ability to ship many LPs in a single shipment.
PLEASE WAIT FOR MY INVOICE - ESPECIALLY FOR MULTIPLE ITEMS! EBAY SHIPPING AMOUNT IS WRONG - DO NOT PAY BEFORE RECEIVING INVOICE!
Media Mail for a single LP in the continental U.S. is $4.50 - $2 for each additional LP. Priority Mail for a single LP in the continental U.S. is $7.25 - $2 for each additional LP. Ignore the Ebay shipping costs, especially for multiple items. I welcome international bidders and will ship anywhere the U.S. Postal Service ships! Shipping rates will vary on where you live and the weight of the package. I never charge more than $5 over the actual shipping costs to cover my handling expenses (20 LP mailers are not free!) for International bidders. I usually ship only on Saturdays and thus can take up to 5 business days after receiving payment to ship an LP.
INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS!! - I WILL SHIP TO MOST COUNTRIES BUT MAY REQUIRE REGISTERED MAIL - PLEASE ASK FOR A SHIPPING QUOTE BEFORE BIDDING!!
INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS!! - I WILL ONLY USE THE ACTUAL PURCHASE PRICE OF THE LPS YOU WIN FOR THE DECLARED CUSTOMS VALUE - NO EXCEPTIONS!
If you are not satisfied with the LP for some reason please notify me before leaving feedback. I accept returns up to 10 days after you have received the LP and will refund the cost of the LP but not the shipping.
