Something for your Holiday Listening Pleasure – start the New Year Right!
Titles:  “Double Cookin / A Day in Sausalito”
Format:    7” single, 45 rpm 
Country:   USA 
Label:   VILLA # 705.  Yellow label with burgundy text .  Styrene.  Guaranteed original and authentic first pressing from 1966. 
Year:   1966
Side A (Double Cookin’) is EXCELLENT with 100% of original gloss, played sparingly and handled with care.  Fidelity is excellent as you can hear in the abbreviated clip from this actual record. 
Label is clean, with a drill hole indicating the record was originally sold as a cutout.  Some moderate rubbing is visible on the label, but otherwise free of writing, stickers, or other flaws.  Plays beautifully with no distortion or distractions.  If this doesn’t get them out on the floor, you’d better check them for a pulse.
Side B (Day in Sausalito) is nice VG+ with excellent fidelity.  There are a few light tics audible in the early going, but nothing major or jarring, as you can hear in the abbreviated clip. Otherwise clean with no distortion or distractions.  There is writing in black sharpie on the B-side label only (see photo) – name of original owner, and her comment “WOW” says it all.  This side will also sound amazing on the dance floor. 
Guaranteed to be original and authentic USA stock first pressing from 1966.   I do not sell bootlegs or modern reissues.
NOTE:  I do not have a buy-it-now price for this item, nor do I end auctions early, in fairness to all potential bidders.  Good luck to all!
