is a 12" LP (33 rpm) by Harry Belafonte from 1956 under the RCA Victor
label LPM-1150 High Fidelity Recording ("New Orthophonic"). Harry must
have turned 90 already! This is his 2nd LP, first one was entitled with
Mark Twain on it. Matrix reads: F2 PP7738 -2S and farther down a
C2. I hope you can read the song list either on the label photos or the
back cover by zooming in.
Front cover is in great shape and has only some dark scuff marks at the right side top area, under the RCA Victor note. Zoom in on the photo to see this. Barely any ringwear, just some (barely) on the back cover near the top left area. No tears on the cover or seams. It's in fantastic shape for 1956. The black RCA label has a couple of spindle marks. Side 1 only has a couple of light scratches in one area. Side 2 barely has any surface scratches! No wonder the sound quality was fantastic! No skips or pops. Barely any light crackles, mostly during a really quiet time, but it was the general vinyl surface crackle in light mode. Nothing affect the vocals of his great voice. I played it through on my Technics turntable. Nice LP! Nice songs! Great voice. (Will include a white inside sleeve, since there wasn't one.)
I rate the cover sleeve as Excellent (EX). The vinyl gets an EXCELLENT also due to no defects for sound quality and only a couple of scuffs/scratches.
