Item Description

THIS IS A BUY IT NOW / BEST OFFER SALE FOR THE EXTREMELY RARE ORIGINAL PRESSING OF JOE ACOSTA AND HIS EMPRESARIOS "SELF TITLED", EIGHT SONG LP RELEASED BY SMC RECORDS IN 1970 (SPANISH MUSIC CENTER CATALOG # SMC - 1117).

THIS IS THE SECOND COPY OF THIS LP THAT I AM SELLING ON EBAY AND YOU CAN VIEW ITS SALES HISTORY AT POPSIKE.COM

VISUALLY, THE LP HAS SOME VERY LIGHT INNER SLEEVE TONING SPOTS FROM STORAGE, ALONG WITH A LIGHT HAIRLINE IN THE LAST SONG ON SIDE ONE, AND TWO SMALL HAIRLINES IN THE FIRST SONG ON SIDE TWO. NONE OF THESE ADVERSELY EFFECT THE SOUND / PLAYABILITY OF THE RECORD: THE RECORD PLAYS AND SOUNDS GREAT OVER ALL.

THAT SAID, IT HAS BEEN MY EXPERIENCE WITH SOME OLDER LPS THAT CONTEMPORARY TURNTABLES SET UP FOR TODAY'S PRISTINE 180 GRAM PRESSINGS MAY NEED TO HAVE THEIR TONE ARMS ADJUSTED TO COMPENSATE FOR SOME OF THE PRESSING QUIRKS AND IDIOSYNCRASIES THAT WERE OFTEN FOUND IN THE 10" AND 12" LPS PRSSED BY SMALLER LABELS WITH LIMITED BUDGETS IN THE '50S. '60S, AND '70S. IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS WITH YOUR TURNTABLE TRACKING OLDER LPS YOU MAY JUST NEED TO MAKE SOME ADJUSTMENTS.

THE GENERIC DIE-CUT SMC JACKET SHOWS SOME LIGHT CORNER WEAR FROM STORAGE, BUT IS A STRONG VG+ OVER ALL WITH NO WRITING OR SEAM SPLITS; LABELS ARE EXCELLENT.

A VERY NICE FIND FOR ANY SERIOUS FAN OR COLLECTOR.
