This is a gorgeous RCA Living Stereo original pressing (1S/1S stampers) of a fun Sam Cooke album. I love both Sam Cooke and the sound of these old RCA recordings so I had a great time playing this one., It's a loose concept album with Cooke singing songs about various locales ("Under Paris Skies," "London By Night," and so on). I don't see this one out in the bins much and rarely see any Living Stereo albums so clean. The sound is super rich and warm -- that wonderfully tubey old-school sound that's sadly been mostly lost to time.
Vinyl: EX (super clean)
Cover: VG+ (very solid, some tiny spots on the back)
Play notes: Excellent old-school sound and 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).
