This is an impossibly rare original 78rpm disc by the Blues legend Robert Johnson. This man’s original discs are so scarce that even the most die-hard record collectors may have never seen something as rare as this; that is the sort of comment I have been hearing on a regular basis from heavy-duty collectors who have seen this incredible record in the short time that I’ve been fortunate enough to own it. ‘Impossibly rare’ and ‘incredibly rare opportunity’ are the kind of phrases that seem to bounce around eBay attached to the most ordinary records but this kind of disc justifies the hype! It rarely turns up for sale as a first issue pressing in brilliant playable condition like this so seriously, don’t miss out...<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Tracks: Kind Hearted Woman Blues / Terraplane Blues
Label: Vocalion (one of just a very few pressed on the Black/Gold label)
Catalogue No: 03416
Matrix No’s: SA2580 / SA2586
VERY GOOD / VERY GOOD+
The labels are still in great shape with no bad defacements or wear. The original owner had put a small sticker on side one with the words ‘master 1’ written on which would easily come off but I’m not going to tamper with this rare record in any way. The playing surface is nice and clear, there are only a few very light marks and nothing badly affects the play through. There is some minor, inevitable background noise but nothing that penetrates the sound of the music which is great quality.
