LP, Vinyl record album

❔
Sonny Terry may be the king – but his vocals and harmonica are working here with a real "royal court" of blues – Lightnin Hopkins and Brownie McGhee on guitar, each of whom set a side of the record – alongside Terry, plus bass from Leonard Gaskin and drums from Belton Evans.  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Sealed early 70s pressing.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Hear My Blues
Prestige/Bluesville, 1959. Near Mint-
Vocalist Al Smith is backed by Eddie Lockjaw Davis' group with Shirley Scott on organ – making for a hip little set that's got a rougher edge than most of the other vocal albums on Prestige. The label delegation for this one was Prestige's Bluesville imprint, but that's not exactly right ... LP, Vinyl record album

An early example of how Atlantic had already begun to exploit the international fascination with American R&B.

Otis Blackwell takes back his songs – providing his own new versions of tunes that were recorded famously by a host of rock, pop, and R&B artists back in the 50s!
