Meteor 5000, Elmore James: "I Believe"/"I Held My Baby Last Night", grade: E (nice and clean, with lots of original "shine")

(This is one of a group of Blues 45s I'm offering. All are genuine, orignal pressings)

 GRADING: "N-" means record has full shine, no wear, few signs of use: very minor marks, scuffs, very light scratches, consistent with the grade, are probably noticeable only due to contrast with underlying gloss of playing surface; anything more consequential is noted specifically); "E" means record has most of original shine, showing little wear, but signs of use: minor marks, scuffs, very light scratches, consistent with the grade (anything more consequential is noted specifically); "V" means obvious wear and use, little or no shine remaining, but should play satisfactorily (recorded sound clear; static and extraneous noise is present, but does not overwhelm); "G" means heavily worn, with static and extraneous noise impairing listening enjoyment; "F" and "P" mean very worn to excessively worn, with listening difficult to impossible. "+" (plus) or "-" (minus) is used to indicate a somewhat better or worse grade. Defects such as cracks and edge chips are noted, but some minor scrathches, scuffs, and marks not likely to cause playing problems, and minor label damage and impairments, not disfiguring, may not be noted for lower grade records, where consistent with the grade (anything more consequential will be noted). My grading is primarily visual. Where reference is made to the playing quality of a record, I have tested (partially played) or played it on an Audiotronics 300-E Classroom Record Player (except Edison discs, which are tested/played on a Dual 1209 turntable, using appropriate cartridge and stylus). (Note: My photos may have blurriness, glare, reflections, and shadows, or may be poorly centered. These photographic faults do not constitute or mask defects which I have not mentioned in my descriptions. LPs photographed in shrink or plastic wrap may appear particularly unappealing.) Postage and insurance are charged at their ACTUAL COSTS. Records are packed when auctions close (multiple wins are combined into a single parcel), resulting parcels are weighed, and postage and insurance are added to total of winnings. No extras, such as charges for "handling" or materials used, are added; and parcels are sent USING THE POSTAL OPTION CHOSEN AND PAID FOR BY BUYERS. I do not try to profit by mailing winners their parcels; any overcharge will be slight and unintentional, resulting from the inaccuracy of my scale. For more terms and information on grading, postage, and payments (payment must be delivered to me within ten days, and note that I now accept PayPal):,POSTAGE,PAYMENTS.htm

OVERSEAS bidders are welcome, but should be aware of the possibility that, if winnings consist of one or two records of minimal value, the cost of mailing could exceed the value of the records. In such cases, winners will be expected to pay promptly for their winnings; I will no longer accede to requests that records be held to be combined with future purchases, unless bids have been entered on items currently running. Payment by PayPal is preferred. Also acceptable: U. S. currency sent registered mail (there have been reports of losses of currency sent from the UK using "International Signed For"). Winners of large groups of 78s should expect to pay substantial amounts for postage. There is also the possibility that parcels may be detained/delayed in customs, and subjected to inspection and assessment of duties. I use sturdy cardboard boxes (for 45s, as well as 78s, where appropriate), and will not use lesser, inadequate packaging in order to reduce postage.
