Ultra Rare nearly,comparable to the history & rarity of the soundtrack Caine Mutiny which recently sold for $10.000! Many Sinatra fans believed for many years that this record did not exist as it did not appear for sale ..For reasons never explained or understood, the record was withdrawn from sale before it was to be distributed from the manufactures..Like the Caine Mutiny's similar withdrawal, a few managed to escape,but never appeared for sale.My research reveals that only 3 of these have appeared for sale in the past 15 years (and 1 of them was mine which came from my lifetime of passion collecting rare Sinatra records & tapes over the past 50 years here in Australia) It was snapped up by a New York buyer who had stated he had been searching for this record worldwide for years.It is believed that only a hand-full of these still exist just like the Caine Mutiny record! Regretably father- time has caught up with me & I can't take them with me, so the 2nd copy of the most valuable Sinatra record in the world is offered for sale at what I'm sure you will agree is a tempting price! My other sensational & rare Sinatra records & Reel to Reel tapes( including Sinatra's unique & never before released recordings of many singing engagements, venues,Concerts,Nightclub performances & Private recordings on original Reel to Reel tapes across the USA & Aust. as well as unreleased early & late Studio Rehearsal Recording tapes are to follow over the course of the next few years,so please keep looking on my site or you will miss out!.These are SENSATIONAL! As a Bonus I will give the buyer of this record a 30% Discount on the selling price of any item he chooses to buy,no matter how high the price or how rare, during the next 12 months of those items listed by me on this site) The record cover is still in a very respectable condition after 50 years.Excellent unfaded & vibrant colour & text,no rips or tears & reasonably sharp corners etc.Minor ringwear can be detected on a small portion of the cover,& there is a name written neatly on the rear.It easily rates VG.(see photo for clearer description) The Record still retains a near new shine,with no writing on label,no tears or damage & no sign of spindle wear.There are some light scratches or scuffs which do not affect the audio as the sound is clear & loud.There are no jumps or skiffs.The record has been carefully played through on both sides & apart from some crackle on track one, sound is superb! Payment within 3 days please Insurance is optional but recommended $33 extra. Overseas postage $29 Thank you & Good Luck!.
