CHUCK & MARY PERRIN    "THE CHUCK & MARY PERRIN ALBUM"   EXTREMELY RARE 1968 PRIVATE PRESSING 'WEBSTER'S LAST WORD' WLW S-2101, RECORDED BASICALLY LIVE IN 1 OR  2 TAKES AT THE LEGENDARY GOLDEN VOICE RECORDING STUDIOS IN SOUTH PEKIN, ILLINOIS.   ONLY 500 COPIES PRESSED!

I HAVE BEEN DEALING IN RECORDS IN CENTRAL ILLINOIS SINCE 1978, AND I HAVE HAD EXACTLY 3 OF THESE IN THAT 40 YEAR PERIOD.

ABSOLUTELY RARE AND ABSOLUTELY THE ORIGINAL ISSUE WITH A FRAGILE, SOFT FINISH BLACK & WHITE GATEFOLD COVER. THIS COVER IN PARTICULAR IS THE BEST OF THE 3 THAT WE'VE HAD.  THERE USED TO BE ONE OF THOSE AWFUL PLASTIC ID TAPE GUN STICKERS ON THE TOP RIGHT COVERING THE 'WLW 2101 STEREO'. THIS WAS CAREFULLY REMOVED WITHOUT DAMAGE ALTHOUGH IT DID LEAVE A TRACE OF BLUE PLASTIC YOU CAN SEE IN THE PICTURE. OTHERWISE THERE IS NO DAMAGE OR WEAR, NO STAINS, NO WRITING, NO SEAM SPLITS, NO TEARS, NO ACTUAL WEAR & TEAR FROM SHELF OR BOX STORAGE, VERY NICE. I HAVE TAKEN MANY PICTURES FROM VARIOUS ANGLES SO YOU CAN SEE FOR YOURSELF.

THE LP IS ALSO RELATIVELY NICE WITH MOSTLY SUPERFICIAL MARKS, BUT DOES HAVE ONE ACTUAL SCRATCH, ON TRACK 1 SIDE 1.  THIS IS A FINE-LINE SCRATCH AT AN ANGLE ACROSS MOST OF THE TRACK, PROBABLY FROM THE ORIGINAL HIGH-FI NEEDLE IT WAS PLAYED WITH.  ONCE YOUR TONE ARM GETS TO THE SCRATCH YOU BEGIN TO HEAR A TIC AS THE RECORD REVOLVES. I COULD FEEL THIS MARK BUT MANAGED TO REMOVE THE EDGES OF IT AND IT HAS PLAYED THROUGH FINE SEVERAL TIMES. HOWEVER, I HAVE ALSO HAD IT STICK IN A SPOT TOWARD THE END OF THE SONG A COUPLE OF TIMES, TOO.  SO MAYBE WITH A DEEP CLEANING OR SOMETHING MORE DRAMATIC LIKE A 'GLUE' CLEANING  YOU MIGHT GET RID OF THAT. THE TRACK IS NOT BEAT UP OR LOADED WITH MARKS. THE ISSUE IS JUST WITH THIS ONE SCRATCH. I HAVE NO IDEA IF IT CAN BE ELIMINATED, THERE IS NO GUARANTEE. ONCE THIS SONG IS OVER THERE ARE NO FURTHER SUCH SCRATCHES, NOTHING MORE THAN OBVIOUS BUT SUPERFICIAL MARKS AND LIGHT PLAY WEAR. YOU HEAR NO MORE TICS, NOTHING OTHER THAN A BIT OF MINOR SURFACE NOISE FROM THEN ON, ON EITHER SIDE. THE REST OF THE ALBUM PLAYS FINE, AND OTHER THAN TRACK 1 THE WHOLE ALBUM SOUNDS GOOD. LABELS ARE CLEAN AND NICE, NO WRITING, NO STICKERS.

OVERALL A BEAUTIFUL SOLID VG++ COVER (without the ID tape residue I would grade it M-), AND (other than track 1) A VISUALLY VG+ AND AUDIBLY VG++ LP. 

I HAVE DESCRIBED THE POTENTIAL ISSUE WITH TRACK 1, SO WE ARE SELLING THIS STRICTLY AS-IS.

RARE! 

STANDARD INTERNATIONAL AIR MAIL TO JAPAN, SWITZERLAND, SWEDEN/DENMARK/NORWAY, UK, HOLLAND/BELGIUM, FRANCE & GERMANY FOR THIS IS $25, TO CANADA IS $23.
