This is Beverly Kenney . . . Born to be Blue . . .The original mono release, Decca DL 8850, first pressing.

Belonged at one time to Jack Schapps, who owned three music stores in shopping centers in suburban Chicago and was also the owner of Astra Records. One store was in the Randhurst Shopping Center. Schapps had worked for RCA records before going into retail. (A photocopy of an inscription to Schapps by Eydie Gorme on one of her albums is included with this sale, shown as the last photo here).
Disk. Both sides are Mint. A photo of one side has been provided which shows some of the rainbow effect of this minimally-played record.

Jacket. Mint. Edges and corners clean all the way around, no ringwear, colors bright, back cover white. No marks or bumps. Best possible condition.

Inner sleeve. The original clear plastic inner sleeve. 

NOTE: Thin rectangular white line on one of the label photos was a camera glitch--not present on the record.

By far the best copy of this rare album that we've ever seen.
