Let me first start with this:  While my current feedback appears low, I previously sold under the ebay seller name 'kennykenken', have been a member & seller of exclusively records on ebay for over 16 years (!) & have maintained a stellar feedback rating for the entire duration.  This new account was set up as a business account, and will be the only place to find my items from here on out.  Please bid with the utmost confidence, I take great pride in my items & service.  Thanks for looking.

On the Bethlehem Records label, catalog # BCP 6045, mono pressing, deep groove press, from 1960.  6 tracks.  Full title:  Mal Waldron - Left Alone a dedication to Billie Holiday.  Incredible & hyper rare lp from Mal Waldron, this one never turns up.  Personnel includes:  Mal Waldron - piano;  Julian Euell - bass;  Al Dreares - drums & Jackie McLean - alto sax.  Please check my other auctions this week for many other high ticket rarities....selling off all my best records in one auction.  

Cover is VG/VG+, with 7" split in lower seam, mostly clean but has a little bit of chipping, some other light seam/corner wear, a couple stamps on back cover...'from the library of...'....displays very well.  Vinyl is as follows:  Side One is strong VG+, with just a couple very light paper scuffs, while Side Two is VG+, with a few light paper scuffs.  Vinyl has been cleaned on a VPI.

All records are visually graded....I do not have time to play grade all the records I sell.  If I see something that looks as though it will affect play, I will play grade it, and will make note of that in description of vinyl.

Both ITALY & FRANCE customers must pay REGISTERED AIRMAIL shipping, regardless of the final value of the item(s)....NO exceptions!  Shipping prices are quoted below.  Also, I do not accept bids from those of you with zero feedback.  Sorry, no exceptions.  Thanks in advance for your understanding.  As always, I will not end auctions early, please don't even bother to ask.

I cannot be held responsible for any damages that occur during shipping.  I pack my items in dedicated record mailers, with cardboard inserts on BOTH sides of record, with the record outside of cover to prevent seam splits.  Sealed records will be shipped sealed, unless other arrangements are made.  I've been shipping records in this fashion for over ten years now, I know what I'm doing.  Please inquire about insurance, as that is the only way to protect yourself from damage caused by the post office.

Quick note to future buyers:  If you have a question, please ask it BEFORE you buy the record, don't assume details without confirming with me, it will save us both future headaches.

ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS....PLEASE NOTE:  any item or combination of items that goes for over $100.00 must ship with registered mail, at an additional cost of $13.00.  THIS IS REQUIRED, I'VE HAD A FEW EXPENSIVE RECORDS DISAPPEAR THROUGH NO FAULT OF MY OWN, to countries that I wouldn't expect to lose something to.   I cannot be held responsible for items that are lost in the mail.

All records are original pressings unless noted....I do not sell current reissues.  Please ask any questions early as I am not always by my computer near the end of auctions.  Buyer pays shipping, see rates below.  Please wait for an invoice before paying for your items, ebay has been automatically sending invoices that are overcharging on shipping costs, so it is in your best interest to wait for an invoice from me.

I accept paypal at this time, as well as all major credit cards via the telephone from US buyers only.   Contact for more info.

Shipping costs are as follows:  media mail domestic is $4.00 and includes tracking.  Priority shipping within the US varies, please contact for info....happy to ship via priority, just please contact before payment, invoice will reflect Media Mail rate unless contacted first.  First class airmail shipping to Canada is $15.00.  First class shipping to MOST OF EUROPE, JAPAN & AUSTRALIA is $23.00.   Registered airmail shipping is $37.00 worldwide, and is required as mentioned above to all shipments to ITALY & FRANCE, and after the total purchase value reaches over $100.00.  I DO NOT SHIP to SOUTH AMERICA, MEXICO, or ISRAEL at this time, no exceptions.  I will gladly combine items to save on shipping, I try not to make any money on shipping costs, I typically end up losing money honestly.  Payment is required within 7 days of auction end.  Thanks for looking, and good luck.
