LP, Vinyl record album

(€4.66 || £3.99 || ¥560) (approx.)

Early genius from Pigmeat Markham – a classic performance at the Apollo Theater, recorded by Chess in a style that would set the tone for countless imitations to come! The cover has kind of a "sad clown" sort of look, but Pigmeat's in full force on a series of routines that include "Go Ahead & Sing", "Restaurant Scene", "Hello Bill", "Ritz Service", and "Frisco Kate". (Cover has light wear and a cutout hole.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.
