This is an unusually clean original Liberty Records pressing, significantly nicer than most copies I come across. The sound here is very good and the vinyl plays relatively quiet -- a touch of light noise at times but nothing major. I've shelled out the coin for a bunch of these over the years and in my experience they tend to disappoint with weak sound, noisy vinyl, or both. This one is rich, full-bodied and natural sounding.
4 1/2 stars Allmusic: "Another batch of authentic interpretations, augmented by their own exceptional instrumentation."
Vinyl: EX (a couple of faint superficial scuffs)
Cover: VG+ (light wear, tiny tear at bottom)
Play notes: A strong sounding copy with relatively quiet vinyl
We prefer to overdeliver and therefore grade conservatively. Our scale runs Near Mint (NM), Excellent (EX), Very Good Plus (VG+), Very Good (VG), Good Plus (G+), Good (G).
