LIGHTNIN' Hopkins And The Blues ORIGINAL MONO Pressing
Vinyl graded VG++ to NM- (please see grading below) Has zero problems during playback. This is a great sounding and overall great condition record...not to mention how RARE one is to come by in such condition. You'll see just a few faint hairline scratches caused by the paper inner sleeve. Stamped matrix numbers and very clean labels.
Cover is glossy and has fantastic color. Corners are neatly taped. (See Photos...) and some minor shelf wear can be seen. Back cover is also in nice condition. Some slight discoloring can be seen, but again is very minor. Time to pass on one of the greatest and sought after blues albums of all time. From my collection to yours, thanks and good luck!  

Shipping is $4.00 to United States buyers only, please! I will also gladly combine shipping, just wait for invoice. 

 
*SS  (STILL SEALED) Sealed at factory and never opened. Disc is assumed to be undamaged and mint, but this cannot be proven until the album is actually opened and the disc examined. *NM   (NEAR MINT) The disc should play with no audible noise.  A very minor, barely visible scuff or two may be permitted, possibly a small hairline scratch or two that do not affect play or interfere with the sound quality. Vinyl is bright and shiny; label is clean and may only have a very small blemish or two. *NM -   (NEAR MINT MINUS) Disc plays near perfectly, but may have minor paper scuffs or very light scratches, possibly with a very light pop or crackle. Vinyl is bright; label is clean and may show only very light wear. *VG++  or as Ebay calls it EX (VERY GOOD PLUS PLUS) Minor visible surface wear, light scuffs and scratches.  Very light noise, if any. Vinyl will still be bright and shiny; labels may have minor imperfections (initials, small sticker residue, light shelf wear, etc.), but otherwise clean.  *VG+   (VERY GOOD PLUS)  Some visible surface wear, scuffs and scratches that cause minor surface noise. Some may be felt with a fingernail, but will have minimal impact on the sound quality. Vinyl will still have good luster; labels may have minor imperfections (small labels or names, shelf wear etc.), but otherwise clean.  *VG   (VERY GOOD) Vinyl will have noticeable scratches and scuffs that cause surface noise, but do not overpower the music. There will be no skips. Vinyl may appear somewhat dull and grayish. Labels may have small tears, tape marks, larger writing, etc. but still be easily legible. There may be wear or minor deformation of the spindle hole. *VG -  or as Ebay calls is G+ (VERY GOOD MINUS) Playable.  Noticeable scuffs and scratches that cause surface noise, but no skips.    *G   (GOOD) Well-played, dull, grayish vinyl with deeper scratches and wear causing distracting surface noise (hisses, pops, cracks and other nasties). The record may have some skips. Labels may be significantly defaced or damaged. *F   (FAIR) These will only be sold as craft, decor, etc. I will explain this clearly within the auction description.
