Teddy Bear

LP (Item 586684) Gusto, 1976 — Condition: Near Mint-
The biggest classic ever from Red Sovine – a landmark record from the CB Radio years of trucker country music! Red Sovine had cut many records for King and Starday before Teddy Bear, but the set's a perfect summation of the more sentimental style he brought to his music – which often included a bit of recitation too – with a quality that's even better here than in early years, given the aging quality of Sovine's voice! Instrumentation is a bit out of time – maybe more late 60s than mainstream 70s country – but that's also a real part of the charm of the record – as Red reminds the America of the disco years that out on the road, there was a very different way of life still going on. Titles include the megahit "Teddy Bear", plus "Love Is", "1460 Elder Street", "18 Wheels Hummin Home Sweet Home", "Does Steppin Out Mean Daddy Took A Walk", "Last Mile Of The Way", "Daddy", and "Bootlegger King".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

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.
