When , according to the
legend, Rolling Stones unloaded their guitars and amps in 1964 at the Chess’
recording studios in Chicago, to record the album's worth of songs, it was none
other than Howlin’ Wolf who helped them unload their amps'n'stuff. The Rolling Stones returned the favor - and
kept returning it for many years thereafter - by including many Chicago
bluesmen in their TV appearances, by making cameos on their albums and by -
like they did here - recording many classic chess blues covers. This is the
Rolling Stones` second US LP – A GENUINE PIECE OF ROCK`N`ROLL HISTORY.

we grade records under the strong,
diffuse room light or discrete sunlight)
WE GRADE THE VINYL AS STRONG VG+(+).
A few light abrasions (probably just sleeve scuffs inflicted in storage over
the years) ARE VISIBLE, but they appear fairly
insignificant relative to the overall condition of the vinyl, and are
only moderately visually distracting. For most part, the vinyl looks
impeccable, without any MAJOR visual flaws or imperfections. Much of the
original luster is intact, and the vinyl shines and sparkles almost like new.
The record is pressed on a beautiful, thick, inflexible vinyl, which
was usually used for the first or very early pressings. Usually, the sound on
such thick vinyl pressings is full-bodied, vivid, and even dramatic. Do not
expect to obtain such a majestic analog sound from a digital recording!
The record comes in a poly-lined stock inner sleeve, which has -
apparently with success - shielded the vinyl from the harmful impact of
elements over many years!
Mono pressing of this title is much rarer, and by far more preferable to its FAKE ("electronically
rechannelled") stereo counterpart. We estimate that FAKE stereo copies of
this album outnumber monos by a ratio of at least 10:1.
The record has a "deep groove" (an indent in the label about
1/2-inch from the edge of the label, which on SOME labels is associated with
very early or first pressings).
True stereo pressings of this album are not known to exist
Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior,
THE COVER IS NICE --- ABOUT VERY GOOD++ (VG++).
The following flaws or
imperfections are noted on the cover:
Cover has some light ring wear (nothing significant); On the
scale from 1 to 10 (1 being the least, and
10 being the most severe), we assess the severity of ring wear as 4
Cover shows some light yellowing on back side, apparently
Back cover has circular tarnish (grayish, dust-covered
sections, which closely follow the contour of the record), probably caused by friction or by rubbing
against other covers during the storage. The tarnish is similar in appearance
to a common ring wear, but, UNLIKE ring wear, these grayish areas may be
possible to clean up with a minor effort and with a right cleansing solution.
Visible shelf wear noted on the seams (nothing significant)
NO OTHER IMPERFECTIONS
ON THE COVER:
No split seams
No cut-out (drill) holes.
