What can we say? The single most important modern blues album EVER (we honestly believe that nothing and no one comes even close) and a true classic of the genre. No collection – let alone BLUES collection – should be without this masterwork.

·                               CONDITION:
 
·                               THE RECORD:
 
(IMPORTANT NOTE: unless otherwise noted, ALL records are graded visually, and NOT play-graded!; we  grade records under the strong, diffuse room light or discrete sunlight)
 
(a)          WE GRADE THE VINYL AS STRONG VERY GOOD+ . CAUTION: The vinyl is NOT MINT or NEAR MINT, but is nevertheless in a very nice and clean condition. There are some surface marks and abrasions, mostly light and superficial, although some may be longer than 1.1/4 inches (1 inch = 2.5 centimeters)
 
(b)          The record has a "deep groove" (an indent in the label about 1/2-inch from the edge of the label, which on SOME labels is associated with very early or first pressings).
 
(c)           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!
 
(d)          Mono pressing of this title is much rarer, and by far more  preferable to its FAKE ("electronically rechannelled") stereo counterpart. We estimate that FAKE stereo copies of this album outnumber monos by a ratio of at least 10:1.
 
(e)           The record has a "deep groove" (an indent in the label about 1/2-inch from the edge of the label, which on SOME labels is associated with very early or first pressings).
 
(f)            True Stereo copies of this album are NOT known to exist.
 
(g)          Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior, digital recording!!!
 
 
·                               THE COVER
 
THE COVER IS NICE --- ABOUT EXCELLENT OR VERY GOOD++ (VG++).
 
The following flaws or imperfections are noted on the cover:
 
-        Cover has  original price sticker, which may be possible to remove with a little effort (we did not attempt to)
-        Cover has a few tiny wrinkles along the spine
-         Cover has one corner slightly worn / frayed / bent (just a beginning of the split seam)
-         Cover has a small, rectangular, sticker residue (small yellowish discoloration from the removed price sticker)
