THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND SIMPLY IMPOSSIBLE TO LOCATE - SO DONT MISS OUT ON THIS AMAZING OPPORTUNITY!!!! This is the ORIGINAL London Jazz UK 1st Pressing from 1958 and is in BRILLIANT condition overall!!!! The record is pressed on THICK quality vinyl!!!! The Cat. No is LTZ-M 15152 on the ORIGINAL 1st Press London Jazz label (see picture) and is a UK MONO 1st Pressing!!!!
The record labels are in SUPERB condition (see pictures) with NO wear, NO writing, and only a few VERY light spindle marks!!!! IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT THIS RECORD HASNT BEEN PLAYED MUCH AT ALL!!!! The vinyl is in BRILLIANT condition!!!! Most of these 50s/60s LPs had been to a lot of wild parties and are usually found totally worn out, and almost unplayable. This one is NOT and has NO scratches, only 2 or 3 TINY hairlines, only 2 or 3 MEGA light scufflines, and only a VERY few of the lightest paper scuffs only visible under light!!!! THE RECORD STILL RETAINS ITS ORIGINAL 'JUST PRESSED' LOOK!!!! It is also great to find that the record plays as STUNNINGLY as the visual with NO pops, barely ANY clicks AT ALL, NO sticking, NO jumps, and barely ANY crackle AT ALL!!!! There is also some VERY slight background sound on the run on grooves & gaps (NOT in the music AT ALL!) - and some INCREDIBLY minor distortion in places (only the VERY loudest vocal notes ONLY!) - but this is EXACTLY how this record was pressed, and common to almost ALL 1950s LPs from this period!!!! The record must grade Very Good++++ if not better!!!! Believe me this record is NOT overgraded in ANY way!!!! I use STRICT RC grading standards - it is not in my interest not to!!!! Brillant!!!! The record comes in its ORIGINAL 1st Press 'Thicker Paper' Handling/Playing inner sleeve which is in BRILLIANT condition!!!! The 1st Press 'Half-Moon' Flipback Laminated Cover is in GREAT condition!!!! It has NO edge wear, NO spinal wear, only slight corner wear (NOT through the colour!), only a few VERY light creases (cover is flat looking!), shiny laminate, and NO writing!!!! There is also some VERY minor laminate loss (NO cover damage!) down the opening edge - though this is VERY common and almost unavoidable on this style of 1950S cover!!!! The opening edge is beautifully straight with NO feathering!!!! Even the unlaminated back of the cover is in GREAT condition with only some very VERY minimal grubbyness, barely ANY yellowing, only some VERY slight rubbing in places, some slight creasing to the bottom flipback, NO flipback loss, and NO writing!!!! Importantly this cover has NO major defects AT ALL - and is simply showing some minor signs of its VERY great 51 year old age!!!! The cover must MEGA STRICTLY grade Very Good(Minus) (PROPERLY graded, NOT trashed!) if not better and is VERY presentable indeed!!!! PLEASE ALSO NOTE - that I have graded this cover like ANY other - and have NOT related the grading to 'age'!!!! THAT SAID - THIS LP IS NOW OVER 51 YEARS OLD, AND THE CHANCES OF FINDING ANOTHER ONE AGAIN ARE VIRTUALLY ZERO!!!! THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND SIMPLY IMPOSSIBLE TO LOCATE - SO DONT MISS OUT ON THIS AMAZING OPPORTUNITY!!!!
