This folk blues singer was one of the original Greenwich Village folk artists. He was an inspiration to many of the new breed of folk artists of the early to mid-60’s including Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell. His gruff style of singing and playing can almost be described as early punk music. One of my favorite Coen brothers’ movies is “Inside Llewyn Davis” which has been said to have been as least tangentially based on his life. He started recording in the late 50’s and continued producing outstanding music incorporating blues, jazz, folk, gospel, ragtime, and even swing music until he passed in 2002. His distinctive style is truly unmistakable, and he has been one of my favorite performers since my college days. This album is a great example of his playing, versatility, singing and songwriting. It was his seventh album, and it is a completely solo recording. Just this incredible songwriter, singing and playing his magical guitar. The album was released on Mercury in 1964, number MG-20908. This is the original mono release of the album. The vinyl has a small chip on the outside edge. It does not impact tracking or play, though care needs to be used when dropping the needle on the vinyl. Otherwise the vinyl is in exceptional condition with its bright original luster and just a few light surface scratches that barely impact play. It plays great with just very light sporadic background noise. The vinyl grades VG. The album cover shows ring wear and corner and edge wear including a two inch split on the open side of the bottom seam. There is a bit of general age wear. The cover grades VG. Track List: Candy Man Frankie’s Blues Bad Dream Blues Pastures Of Plenty Didn’t It Rain Wanderin’ God Bless The Child Blue Monday Baby, Let Me Lay It On You House Of The Rising Sun Grading Information I always clean and then listen to every record I list on eBay. I do this to make sure I can give as accurate a description of each record as possible. I will do both a visual check and an audio check. I absolutely attempt to give as objective a grading as I can. I don’t ever want you to be disappointed in the quality of the album you receive. My promise is that I will never put up for auction any album that I would not be proud to play for others on my own turntable. I use four grades in my grading: NM, VG+, VG, and G. The only exception is a sealed album which is presumed to have vinyl in mint condition. My NM grading means that the vinyl looks and plays as though it is the first time out of the sleeve. The VG+ rating is used on any album that plays great but has one or two small defects. It may have a pop here and there or some occasional background static. On a VG album you can expect that, typically, this album will play great, but you’ll see more defects on this than your VG+ rated album. Most often the VG rated album may even play well enough to be graded VG+, but the color or blemishes drop the grading. Likewise, you may occasionally find an album that looks almost NM but the sound quality just isn’t there. That’s why I play every album first, because this does happen. In this case the vinyl will be graded VG. Very occasionally I will list an album with a grade of G. This is one where I consider the collectible value of the album to be great enough that the copy being presented is worth having as a filler copy. Shipping Information – Combined Shipping Shipping is $4.00 in the continental U.S. In addition, I will happily combine records from multiple auctions to reduce total shipping cost. In fact, I welcome it! Shipping will be $4.00 in the U.S regardless of the number of auctions won in any 5-day period. Canada shipping is calculated based on weight using US Postal Service rates. Combined shipping is also welcomed here and does result in significant per-album cost savings. Canada shipping rates have gone up dramatically. The first album will be shipped for $16. Additional albums will be shipped for $5 per album, with up to five albums able to be shipped before we need to use International Priority shipping. At that point we will work together on final determination of shipping cost. The Canada cost determination also applies for all other International shipping, except that the first album is shipped for $23 and each subsequent is just an additional $6.00. All albums will be shipped in specially designed album hard cardboard mailers with a cardboard insert to prevent damage upon opening. The vinyl is removed from the cover and presented in a new poly sleeve. I am committed to one day turnaround on shipments. If I receive payment before 7:00 AM Central Time I will package and ship that same day. Payment by PayPal is preferred. Thank you for looking and please contact me with any questions.
