A wonderful copy of this rare item!
This record is from the estate of a West Coast DJ and lifetime jazz record collector. In his latter years, he became a hoarder of clothing, which eventually covered his record racks... leaving the LPs buried, protected from sunlight (and use) for decades. As such, the records in this collection remain uniquely well preserved.
SPECIAL NOTE: This item was listed briefly, but the shipping options were not set correctly. In order to open up bidding to international buyers, eBay required me to cancel the bidding and restart. My apologies for any inconvenience or confusion; hasn't happened before, won't happen again. CHECK OUT MY OTHER AUCTIONS (and follow me on eBay over the next few months), as I sell off the very best from this once-in-a-lifetime collection.
Record Grading: SS (Still Sealed) - In factory-fresh condition. M (Mint) - I don't use this grade. NM (Near Mint) - A near perfect, probably unplayed record. EX (Excellent) - Close to like new with only superficial signs of use that dont affect play. Only well cared for records will grade out to EX. Will satisfy all but the most demanding collector. VG (Very Good) - A used, reasonable copy. There will be obvious signs of wear and the possibility of light surface noise between tracks or during quiet passages, but still quite nice. VG (Very Good Minus) - Significant wear and marks and usually quite noticeable surface noise. G+ (Good Plus) - In the record world, 'Good' is not good! From here on down (Fair, Poor), we're talking about beat-up records.
