Miles Davis: Kind of Blue 6-eye, 1st MONO Pressing, Final collection copy! A lot of sellers would grade this as near mint. The original sheen and luster are there, and only a few superficial marks. I don't need to tell you that finding a 1st pressing in this condition is quite challenging. I think this would represent a final collection copy for most collectors.She's a beut and you won't be disappointed! Cover = VG+, Labels = EX +. Albums graded visually, noted if play graded. Note: I do not seek to grade conservatively, (whatever that means), I seek to grade ACCURATELY.
Sealed only, with no damage or wear to the cover. Virtually flawless, appearing in unplayed condition, and the cover and inner sleeves are free of significant creases or tears. Labels will likewise be free of spindle marks! Unplayed records cannot, by definition, have spindle marks!!!!
When I use this grade, I STAND BY IT! There will be virtually no background noise, like pops or cracks, and it will have a just opened sound. Still free of any significant defects, with only superficial flaws. Such albums will show some minor signs of play and storage, but will display minimal wear, plenty of shine and will still be considered incollectible condition.
Background noise will only be audible during quieter portions of the album, if at all, and will not be prominent to the point of affecting sound quality. Labels may have none, to only a few, spindle marks and covers will have only minor edge and corner wear. An album that has obvious signs of wear, but plays through without skips, jumps, or long repetitive ticks. It will be entirely playable with moderate background noise. Covers might have small stains, edge, spine and/or corner wear.
Vinyl will have surface level scuffs that may affect playback but allows the music to shine through. Unlike most sellers, a grade from me of VG does NOT mean that the album is trash! An album that has had a full life but is still worth listening too.Sound quality will be diminished by background noise, and perhaps some loud pops and very minor skips. Covers and inner sleeves will have stains, tears or other signs of damage, but will still adequately protect the vinyl and acceptably present the original artwork. Labels will be diminished by spindle marks and other forms of damage. An album on which the surface noise and skipping is too distracting to listen too enjoyably, and that has a cover with major stains, tears or other significant defects. I will sell an album in this condition ONLY when it is highly collectible because of its age and/or rarity. I will use plus or minus designations freely to nuance the grading of each album, and to bridge the gap in describing albums that fall in between grades. Im just an average dude who loves vintage vinyl and collects as a personal hobby. As a personal collector, I always ask myself when grading an album how I would feel to receive a record in the condition I describe.
Be assured that I will always strive to be as accurate as I can with the grades I assign. I know how important that is to us vinyl enthusiasts, and how frustrating it is when albums come over-graded!If you disagree with my grading upon receipt, please contact me immediately for a resolution before leaving negative or neutral feedback.
