Mad Thad (1957)

Original 1957 mono pressing (USA).  Deep groove.  Very rare record, especially in this NM unplayed condition (except for spot play before this auction to confirm it plays beautifully).  A super collectible copy of this first US pressing. This is not the later reissue or Japanese issue. Thad Jones, Tommy Flanagan, Doug Watkins, Jo Jones and others.

Vinyl = NM

Cover = VG (great front and back graphics, but some seam loss)(See Pic)

Vinyl has original shine and luster. Clean.  LP plays beautifully. Labels clean as new.  Deep rich analog sound that will not disappoint.  

Cover presents beautifully at front and back.  Clean front.  Clean back. Some seam wear and seam loss. See photos.

All vinyl cleaned on a professional record cleaning machine and packed in antistatic inner sleeve and packed outside the cover in a mylar outer sleeve.

All play grading done on a Dr. Feickert Analogue Woodpecker turntable through McIntosh analog tube equipment.
