Pres Lives – Savoy Sessions

LP (Item 527639) Savoy, 1950 — Condition: Sealed
Originally: 9.99
Nice small combo work from Lester Young – recorded with the obscure Jessie Drakes on trumpet! Titles include "Neenah", "Body & Soul", "Up & Atom", "Big Eyes Blues", and "How High The Moon". Plus, this set also features two unissued tunes that appear here for the first time – versions of "Jumpin With Symphony Sid" and "One O'Clock Jump".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Sealed 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.
