1910 Fruit Gum Co. with Goody Goody Gum
Drops album from 1968. This is a German-mfg album with the European
laminate covering the cardboard cover. Back cover has a note that says
Mfg by Deutsche Grammophon, Hamburg. Stereo also playable mono.
Interesting thing is that on the record label, the 6th song is
Polly-Wally-Doo-Da-Day, but that is not listed on the back cover!
Side 1: Goody Goody Gumdrops; Liza; Mr. Cupid; Hot Diggity Dog; Hook Line & Sinker.
Side 2: Dee-Licious; Please Me, Tease Me; (Play Our Song) Mr. Music Man; A, B, C, I Love You; Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum; Polly-Wally-Doo-Da-Day.
cover is in okay shape but has some wear showing at the open right
seam. The laminated cover is starting to bubble a bit along the left
front side, as you can see. The top and bottom seams are open, but you
can easily glue them back. Top left upper corner has a little wear
(photo attached). Back cover looking good, but you can see the bubbling
starting on the laminated cover, too, at the right side seam. Just an
inside plain cover sleeve. The Buddah label is in great shape. The
vinyl is in way better shape than the cover. Side 1 has about 9 little
scratches and some light scuffing here and there. Side 2 has about 7
light surface scratches. I played it through with great sound quality
on my Technics turntable, but on 1 song on Side 2, I did hear a little
crackle each time it went around in the beginning due to a little
scratch that was a little deeper than the surface scratches (#4 A, B, C,
I Love You). Darn! But being a German-made LP, the vinyl is heavier
than the typical US vinyl from that time. The rest of the album had
great sound quality. No skips or pops.
I grade the cover as Very Good (VG) due to the seam tears and
worn open seam. The vinyl I grade at Excellent (EX) for sound quality
except for that one song with the crackle for the first minute.
