Lightnin’ Slim “Rooster Blues” RARE ORIGINAL 1960 EXCELLO LP-8000 DG MONO LP
Label: Excello (LP-8000) Year: 1960
ConditionVinyl - VG++ Cover - VG++

Very rare original first DG mono pressing from 1960 in gorgeous condition.  The deep groove vinyl is VG++ showing VERY minimal wear - plays and sounds flawless with super clean labels.  The glossy-front thick cardboard jacket is also in exemplary condition showing VERY minimal age - pristine for it’s age.  This is a top top copy.


I grade my LPs VERY conservatively and accurately under a bright light.  A description of the grading scale is below:
M: MINT - perfect.  vinyl is pristine / cover is flawless and/or sealed
M- : just under mint.  a very, very slight amount of wear on the cover or inaudible wear on the vinyl (surface wear from age, generally) but is otherwise flawless
VG+: vinyl / cover shows signs minor signs age or wear that are more or less undistinct / inaudible.
VG: vinyl / cover shows some visible wear / age but is overall in very good shape.  pops and clicks may be ever so slightly noticeable, but don't effect play or overall listening experience.
VG-: vinyl / cover shows some relatively apparent age but is in overall good shape and still a fine copy to own / play.  
G+: vinyl shows some heavy wear but overall sounds decent.  cover has some flaws or shows much age
G: vinyl is in pretty rough shape visibly but plays ok.  cover shows a lot of age or has some major splits or tears.  
G-: vinyl looks / sounds pretty rough.  cover has major condition issues such as water damage, large rips, etc
*a double "+" or "-" indicates that the condition is just above or below the neighboring grade
