This is a 78 rpm copy of Okeh 45333 - Slim Doucet "Waxia Special" backed with "Chére Yeux Noirs (Dear Black Eyes)."
Incredible cajun accordion/guitar duet, recorded on March 20th, 1929. You can hear this song on YouTube (not from this copy).
This record plays amazingly well for being 90 years old. Clean and clear, with very little noise or distortion. The only "defect" with the record, such as it is, is an edge chip on the b-side, "Chére Yeux Noirs," not affecting play (see photo).
Records of this type are very rare, and I can find no instance on the internet of this title being sold - much less in this condition. Enjoy this one... it's a treasure!
Sold as-is. The record will be shipped double boxed and insured, shipped by priority mail.
Addition - someone asked me to re-check the record to make sure a mark in one of the photos isn't a crack. It's not.Under a bright light, though, I did notice a few minor lamination cracks (shouldn't make any difference when playing), a few light scratches and another minor edge chip (literally on the edge, which is why I didn't see it the first time around).
