FRANKIE LEE SIMS ACE 527
WALKING WITH FRANKIE HEY LITTLE GIRL
EXCEPTIONAL ARTIST - TEXAS BOOGIE AT ITS BEST FROM 1957 - "WALKING WITH FRANKIE" WAS ALMOST AN ANTHEM IN THE SOUTH
This record has been in my personal collection for many years, and is now up for AUCTION.
CONDITION: VG++ / VG+
This record is absolutely original, not a boot, repro or reissue.
STANDARD 45 RPM GRADING:
M- Mint Minus (Near Mint) Highest grade used. Has full or nearly full luster. Little or no sign of play or handling. Highly desirable condition.
VG++ Very Good Plus Plus (Excellent). Most luster remains. Some indications of careful play. Very mild groove wear, perhaps a few very light scuffs or scratches, not felt by touch. Very desirable condition.
VG+ Very Good Plus. Still some decent luster. Shows moderate groove wear. May have minor scuffs and/or scratches. Still a very nice "above average" used record, acceptable to most collectors.
VG Very Good. Obvious groove wear with mostly, or fully grey grooves. Scuffs and/or scratches of an "average" used record are more likely. Often plays better than it looks.
VG- Very Good Minus. Record shows heavy use, deeper grey, more scuffs and scratches. Plays with more surface noise but should play through.
G Good. A beat record that could easily skip, looks bad and is noisy.
