NOTE: I'll allow Ebay overseas shipping program only for international orders. I ship to a distribution location, and they handle from there -- and I believe it's fairly expensive. So check before hand. Holy cannoli ... I love this album. Like love it. Dexter Gordon blows my hair back -- plus check out that sweet hype sticker! See below for more detail: VINYL: VG+ (8.3 of 10) NYC labels, Ear marks, VAN GELDER in runouts -- genuine OG MONO pressing. Mono glory -- it's loud, it sounds phenomenal, it's energetic -- love how this one sounds. There are a few dull marks (one dull smudge mark, last track, side 2) and a little paper scuffing bringing down my numbers slightly -- but everything is very surface, and decently minimal. This record plays very close to a top copy ... really close. ... don't miss out on this one, I never find this album. COVER: VG+ (9.0 of 10) Cover is essentially top condition. Very little aging, heavy gloss, pretty crisp corners, strong spine ... really sweet hype sticker. It has a little age, and a scuff on the back -- otherwise beautiful._______Now the standard messages: GRADING: Yes I use standard grading. HOWEVER, I will NEVER use the word "mint" or "near mint" to describe a used LP ... sorry, won't do it. The highest I go is VG+. I use a number after to more represent a combination of how the vinyl looks and how it sounds. 10 is the best. I'll describe what I see in addition. I've found the combination of these two can minimize expectation gaps. But ask questions when in doubt. CLEANING: Yes. All vinyl is cleaned ... on my own machine I made. Vacuum machine. I wash and rinse with my own formula cleaners -- once with my enzyme cleaner, and rinsed with my own distilled water/alcohol formula. ... this process has worked for me for years. TESTING: Yes. I've listened to the records I sell. I play on a Lenco L70, via Denon 103 MC cart; tube preamp, a Dynaco ST-70 all tube amp to KLH 17 speakers. An super tubey setup, right!? SHIPPING: $4.99 for anywhere Media Mail, domestic. Overseas is BY WEIGHT, so check that weight before bidding, you overseas-ers! LPs shipped in a proper box with plastic sleeve, and yes, vinyl shipped outside the sleeve. NOTE: Due to the pandemic, I'll be shipping via eBay international shipping program only. RETURNS: Generally a no go, unless you have a compelling reason. But if there's a serious problem, I'm sure we can figure it out with a return. I mean, I am an adult ... allegedly. But I do try to describe accurately, offer time for questions, and I deal in used records, not new stuff ... yes, it's always kind of a gamble buying via eBay, which is why I try to do my best to make an objective attempt to describe the LP in question. ASK QUESTIONS WHEN IN DOUBT. I promise, we can make this an easy transaction
