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  (WEAK) 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 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!

 

(c)           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.

 

(d)          The record comes in the original stock inner sleeve.

 

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

 

 

·       COVER

 

THE COVER IS NICE --- ABOUT EXCELLENT OR VERY GOOD++ (VG++).

 

The following flaws or imperfections are noted on the cover:

 

-        Cover has a partially split top seam (between 2 and 4 inches  / 5 to 10 centimeters)

 

-         Cover has two corners slightly worn / dinged  (nothing significant)

 

-         Cover has some light ring wear (nothing significant); On the scale from 1 to 10 (1 being the least, and  10 being the most severe), we assess the severity of ring wear as 2 (front side) and 3 (back side)

 

-         Back cover has circular tarnish (grayish, dust-covered sections, which closely follow the contour of the record),  probably caused by friction or by rubbing against other covers during the storage. The tarnish is similar in appearance to a common ring wear, but, UNLIKE ring wear, these grayish areas may be possible to clean up with a minor effort and with a right cleansing solution.

 

-         Minor shelf wear noted on the seams (nothing significant)

 

-         Cover shows some light yellowing on back side, apparently from aging.

 

NO OTHER IMPERFECTIONS ON THE COVER:

 

-        No cut-out (drill) holes.

-        No cut-out corners

-        No saw-marks or indents

-        No wrinkles or creases

-        No writing

-        No stamps

-        No peel-off marks

-        No stains

-        No mold or mildew spots

-        No stickers or labels

-        No water damage

-        No razor marks, scratches, pressure marks, lines, streaks, or  cuts.

-        No warping

-        No wax, glue, paint or liquid drops on the cover

-        No glue traces or wax residue.

-        No bar codes

-        No RIAA stamps or stickers.
