CONWAY TWITTY Sings Very Rare Orange Cover Photo Stereo MGM E3744 Country LP
Up for sale we have: Conway Twitty, Sings. Extremely rare alternate cover with clean cut photo of a young Conway Twitty orange backround pressing on MGM. Stereo E3744. A must for any serious country collection.
RECORD is in VERY STRONG VG or better condition. Record only has some very light surface marks and plays with some light normal surface sounds. Absolutely no deep scratches or overpowering surface sounds. A nice copy.
COVER is in VG+ condition with some light shelf wear, corner wear and some creasing and bending in the lower left corner(pictured).
I thoroughly describe and grade all records that I sell and strive for 100% customer satisfaction. Please contact me directly with any concerns or problems.
Record grading based on Goldmine standards, but with added NM- and VG++ for records that don't quite fall into either the NM or VG+ category so as not to be over graded:
Mint [M], or Still Sealed [SS]: Only sealed records will be deemed "Mint".
Near Mint [NM]: The record shows no obvious sign of wear, appearing unplayed. An LP jacket has no creases, folds, seam splits or any other noticeable similar defect. No cut-out holes, either. Basically, Near Mint looks as if you just got it home from a new record store and removed the shrink wrap.
*Near Mint Minus [NM-], and [VG++]: Vinyl shows only faint paper scuffs or pressing scuffs on the surface only. No noise from scuffs will be heard. VG++ is for an LP with only a medium amount of paper scuffs and/or pressing scuffs, still no effect on play.
Very Good Plus [VG+]: Shows some signs that it was played and otherwise handled by a previous owner who took good care of it. Record surfaces may show some slight signs of wear and may have slight scuffs or very light scratches that don't affect one's listening experience. Slight warps that do not affect the sound are OK yet will be noted. An LP jacket my have slight signs of wear also and may be marred by a cut-out hole, indentation or corner indicating it was taken out of print and sold at a discount. In general, if not for a couple of minor things wrong with it, this would be Near Mint. All but the most mint-crazy collectors will find a Very Good Plus record highly acceptable.
Very Good [VG]: Many of the defects found in a VG+ record are more pronounced in a VG disc. Surface noise is evident upon playing, especially in soft passages and during the song's intro and fade, but will not overpower the music otherwise. Groove wear will start to be noticeable, as will light scratches deep enough to feel with a fingernail) that wilaffect the sound. Labels may be marred by writing, or have tape or stickers (or their residue) attached. The same will be true of picture sleeves or LP covers. However, it will not have all of these problems at the same time, only two or three of them.
Good [G], Good Plus [G+]: A record in Good or Good Plus condition can be put onto a turntable and will play through without skipping. But it will have significant surface noise and scratches and visible groove wear. A jacket or sleeve has seam splits, especially at the bottom or on the spine. Tape, writing, ring wear or other defects will start to overwhelm the object.
Poor [P], Fair [F]: I do not list records in this category unless exceptionally rare and desirable. They will have skips, cracks and/or noise that prevents the enjoyment of the music.
