New Jimmy Reed Album

LP (Item 540202) Bluesway, 1966 — Condition: Very Good

Jimmy's not on Chess here – but the set was recorded in Chicago with a very cooking small group – with both Jimmy Reed Jr and Lefty Bates helping out on guitar!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Blue label stereo pressing. Cover has surface and edge wear, split top and bottom seams with clear tape and aging. Label has a bit of pen.)

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.
