Louis Armstrong - Plays W.C. Handy LP - Columbia - CL 591 Mono DG VG++
Media grade: VG＋＋, faint haze on vinyl, faint spindle marks on labels Listing Information
Carolina Soul weekly offering: 1,000+ avant, free, funky, spiritual, and classic jazz LPs. Many of the records in this week's auction come from a massive, meticulously cared for Boston-area collection that contains the most extensive run of 1950s-1960s Blue Notes and Prestiges we've ever seen. And because the owner stored everything in poly sleeves and audiophile inners, condition is consistently far superior to the average piece from the era. Over the coming weeks, we'll continue to offer up large numbers of titles from this collection. To browse this week's selection, click here.

Grading ScaleSealed Jacket sealed shut in shrink wrap; disc sold ungraded or "as is". NM Appears unplayed and will bear no marks, sleeve scuffs, or scratches. We seldom use this grade. VG++ May have one or two visible imperfections (i.e. sleeve scuffs, faint scratches, or other superficial marks) that will not affect play. VG+ A few visible imperfections. These may include sleeve scuffs, light scratches, or other superficial marks. VG Same imperfections found on VG+ records but in slightly greater numbers. Records graded VG and above will typically not have any scratches that are deep enough to be felt with a fingernail. VG- A number of visible imperfections; the presence of a considerable number of light scratches will force a VG- grade, as will the presence of significant isolated defects such as scratches deep enough to be felt with a fingernail. G Pervasive imperfections of varying degrees including both light scratches and scratches deep enough to be felt with a fingernail. G+ and G- are used to indicate stronger and weaker copies within this range.
All records are visually graded by our experienced staff, using a bright lamp and a well-calibrated turntable.
