Louis Armstrong Plays WC Handy (second cover)

LP (Item 57328) Columbia, 1954 — Condition: Sealed

Mid 50s, and Louis is going back to his roots – playing a set of compositions by WC Handy – working with a small combo that includes Barrett Deems on drums, Arvell Shaw on bass, Trummy Young on trombone, and Barney Bigard on clarinet. Vocals are by Louis and Velma Middleton – and titles include "Atlanta Blues", "Chantez Les Bas", "Loveless Love", "Memphis Blues", "St Louis Blues", and "Beale Street Blues".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Recent Analog Spark pressing – heavy vinyl and cover!)

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.
