Meteor 5000: Elmore James, I Believe/I Held My Baby Last Night.

Scarce original yellow label first press from December 1952, recorded in Universal Studio in Chicago, the previous month with Elmore James (vcl/gtr); J T Brown (tnr sax); Johnny Jones (pno); Ransom Knowling (bs); Odie Payne Jr (dms).

The A-side unfortunately has one deep scratch over the first 10 grooves that needs extra pressure on the needle in order not to skip. Otherwise VG(+) condition with full gloss.

The B-side plays perfectly and grades VG(+) with full gloss.

Both labels are clean with minor ring wear (see scans) and grades VG(+).

NB: this record was pressed in 1952 and plays best with a 78 rpm stylus.

I grade: M / M- / VG+ / VG / VG- / G+ and I will not list records of lesser grade that that.

25 years experience from buying, selling and writing on blues, rhythm & blues, rockabilly and rock 'n' roll. Buy with confidence from amazondoktorn. Check my feedback and you'll see why.

This record ships ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD for $10!
