Moms Mabley At The White House Conference

LP (Item 75572) Mercury, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good-

Moms takes her case to the White House – yakking it up with the usual hint at off-color comedy, and a knack for a soulful approach that actually helped her bridge more audiences than other African American comics of the time. Routines include "Me & LBJ", "The Beggar The Crash", "Introduction To Opera", and "Funnies". (Mono pressing. Cover has splitting on the bottom seam.)  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Pretty raw stuff from Moms – not in the content, but in the style of recording, as the record's definitely an "on the spot" number – recorded live in concert at the Apollo. However, that also makes it pretty compelling – as Moms is in home territory here – keeping ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wild!
