Hundred Pounds Of Clay

LP (Item 545299) Liberty, 1961 — Condition: Very Good

Hard to bel3eve that this is the guy who went on to record Headless Heroes of the Apocalypse, but back in the 60's (and probably even in the 70's), he was a lot better known for the title hit "100 Pounds Of Clay", and for his sweet smooth deep vocal style. The album includes his big hit, plus a lot of other tracks that were made famous by others who went before Gene with a similar style (like Tommy Edwards and Roy Hamilton). Tracks include "The End", "Cry", "Are You Sincere", and "Make Me A Present Of You".  © 1996-2020, 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.
