ROBERT JOHNSON - Kind Hearted Woman Blues ( take 2)/TERRAPLANE BLUES...Kind Hearted is his first recording..Dallas, 1936..comes with the original sleeve it was found in!..there is some label wear on KIND HEARTED as illustrated but nothing bad at all...TERRAPLANE's label is as graded ( see illustration)...visually the disc is a solid VG to VG+..there are scratchy patches on both sides that tic and pop in some sections...there is still some gloss...not a bad copy at all..I'd play grade it at VG+ to VG as some sections play better than others...a good one to have until that mint E to N- one turns up at your local junk shop!.. ........... ................... .. ..............

- we follow the standard 78 rpm VJM/JJJ grading system:
N- = like new (a 9 1/2 to 10 out of 10!), E+ = a virtually perfect copy with only minor signs of having been played ( a 9 out of 10), E = very slight signs of wear, maybe some minor scuffing and/or light scratches but a very clean copy with little groove wear ( 8 out of 10),E- = slightly above average copy, some groove wear and minor blemishes but a very decent copy ( a 6 1/2 to 7 1/2 out of 10), VG+ = an average copy, signs of use, some groove wear but still a decent copy ( 5-6 out of 10), VG = wear, scuffing, light scratches but a very playable copy ( 4 out of 10), VG- getting scary!...will play but is quite worn ( 3 out of 10), G+ = a playable copy but very very worn ( 2 out of 10), G through G- = in the words of my pal RUSS SHOR " a wall hanger!" P = a hunk of shellac which once might have been a phonograph record!
