Original STEREO pressings of Jimmy Reed's albums on Vee Jay (1960-1965) are some of the most coveted and prized possessions in the blues record-collecting. Because of his huge commercial success (Jimmy Reed had no peers among bluesmen of his generation) he was allowed a privilege of recording his peak-period albums in multi-track technology and some of his albums were pressed in true stereo - although in minuscule numbers, probably less than 2000 each - even at a time when not even many white performers in a heavily segregated show business were given such generous treatment. What complicates things is that VeeJay was notoriously sloppy when keeping track of Reed's recordings, and nobody seems to be quite certain which ones of his albums exist in true stereo and which are to be found in mono only. This one - we guarantee - is a 100% genuine true stereo, first pressing of his fifth album on Vee Jay and is literally and figuratively rare as hell (good luck finding one). This is the great Bluesman's fifth album on Vee Jay; we find him improvising in studio here, and performing while mildly intoxicated. Incredible work?one of the critical albums of the modern blues. Absolulutely indispensable. Track listing: I'll Change That Too --- Let's Get Together --- Good Lover --- Take It Slow --- Too Much --- In The Morning --- Oh John --- Back Home At Noon --- Kansas City Baby --- You Can't Hide.

·       CONDITION:

 

·       RECORD

 

(IMPORTANT NOTE: unless otherwise noted, ALL records are graded visually, and NOT play-graded!; we grade records under the strong, diffuse room light or discrete sunlight)

 

(a)            WE GRADE THE VINYL AS NEAR MINT. Some VERY LIGHT AND SUPERFICIAL abrasions ? mostly sleeve scuffs - are (barely) visible, but are probably inaudible, and do not affect visual integrity or beauty of the vinyl. The original luster is very much intact, and the vinyl shines and sparkles almost like new.

 

(b)            The record has a "deep groove" (an indent in the label about 1/2-inch from the edge of the label, which on SOME labels is associated with very early or first pressings).

 

(c)             The record is pressed on a beautiful, thick, inflexible vinyl, which was usually used for the first or very early pressings. Usually, the sound on such thick vinyl pressings is full-bodied, vivid, and even dramatic. Do not expect to obtain such a majestic analog sound from a digital recording!

 

(d)            Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior, digital recording!!!

 

(e)             Stereo pressing of this title is much rarer, and by far more preferable to its mono counterpart. The mix is more graphic, the sound resolution more precise, and the channel separation (which does not exist on mono version) adds a whole new dimension to the music. Also, the stereo mixes are (by definition) somewhat different than on the mono version. We estimate that mono copies of this album outnumber stereo copies by a ratio of at least 3:1.
