Original STEREO pressings of
Jimmy Reed's albums on Vee Jay (1960-1965) are some of the most coveted and prized
possessions in the blues record-collecting. Because of his huge commercial
success (Jimmy Reed had no peers among bluesmen of his generation) he was
allowed a privilege of recording his peak-period albums in multi-track
technology and some of his albums were pressed in true stereo - although in
minuscule numbers, probably less than 2000 each - even at a time when not even
many white performers in a heavily segregated show business were given such
generous treatment. What complicates things is that VeeJay was notoriously
sloppy when keeping track of Reed's recordings, and nobody seems to be quite
certain which ones of his albums exist in true stereo and which are to be found
in mono only. This one - we guarantee - is a 100% genuine true stereo, first pressing
of his fifth album on Vee Jay and is literally and figuratively rare as hell
(good luck finding one). This is the great Bluesman's fifth album on Vee Jay;
we find him improvising in studio here, and performing while mildly
intoxicated. Incredible work…one of the critical albums of the modern blues.
Absolulutely indispensable. Track listing: I'll Change That Too --- Let's Get
Together --- Good Lover --- Take It Slow --- Too Much --- In The Morning --- Oh
John --- Back Home At Noon --- Kansas City Baby --- You Can't Hide.

WE GRADE THE VINYL AS (WEAK) NEAR MINT.
Some VERY LIGHT AND SUPERFICIAL abrasions – mostly sleeve scuffs - are (barely) visible, but are probably
inaudible, and do not affect visual
integrity or beauty of the vinyl. The original luster is very much intact, and
the vinyl shines and sparkles almost like new.
The record is pressed on a beautiful, thick, inflexible vinyl, which
was usually used for the first or very early pressings. Usually, the sound on
such thick vinyl pressings is full-bodied, vivid, and even dramatic. Do not
expect to obtain such a majestic analog sound from a digital recording!
Stereo pressing of this title
is much rarer, and by far more preferable to its mono counterpart. The mix is more graphic, the sound resolution more
precise, and the channel separation (which does not exist on mono version) adds
a whole new dimension to the music. Also, the stereo mixes are (by
definition) somewhat different than on the mono version. We estimate that mono
copies of this album outnumber stereo copies
by a ratio of at least 3:1.
The record comes in the original stock inner sleeve.
Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior,
THE COVER IS NICE --- ABOUT
EXCELLENT OR VERY GOOD++ (VG++).
The following flaws or
imperfections are noted on the cover:
Cover has a partially split top seam (between 2 and 4 inches / 5 to 10 centimeters)
Cover has two corners slightly worn / dinged (nothing significant)
Cover has some light ring wear (nothing significant); On the
scale from 1 to 10 (1 being the least, and
10 being the most severe), we assess the severity of ring wear as 2
(front side) and 3 (back side)
Back cover has circular tarnish (grayish, dust-covered
sections, which closely follow the contour of the record), probably caused by friction or by rubbing
against other covers during the storage. The tarnish is similar in appearance
to a common ring wear, but, UNLIKE ring wear, these grayish areas may be
possible to clean up with a minor effort and with a right cleansing solution.
Minor shelf wear noted on the seams (nothing significant)
Cover shows some light yellowing on back side, apparently
NO OTHER IMPERFECTIONS
