COPY #1. The cover on this copy has a corner bend at upper left, and several bad cracks along the top spine. There's just the faintest hint of surface wear. Overall, I'd rate it as VG -- just average. The vinyl shows some light surface scratching. It's VG, as well. Overall, just an average copy, in VG condition. $3.00.
JUNE CHRISTY, THIS IS JUNE CHRISTY (UK RELEASE) -- Capitol 26 0051 1
Maynard played on three tracks on this LP with the Pete Rugolo Orchestra: Whee Baby, Why Do You Have to Go Home, and You Took Advantage of Me. It's a relatively hard LP to find, but this is the MUCH RARER UK version of this LP. It's a very special item for the completist collector!
COPY #1. The cover on this copy looks new, but someone did draw a few lines on a piece of paper that was sitting on top of the front cover. In oblique lighting, you can see a few light depressions in the cover paper. But folks, I'm being really picky here. That's the only problem, and this cover still is NMINT. The vinyl is a super clean NMINT to NMINT+. Overall, let's call this copy NMINT. Just a super find, it's yours for $13.00.
COPY #2. The cover on this one looks fantastic. It's easily NMINT, with the only problem being a sticker from the original seller in New York that attached to the back. Still, this is a super copy, and rates the NMINT. The vinyl is a seldom, if ever, played NMINT++! Overall, this copy is NMINT+. Yours for $14.00.
COPY #3. Wow, I can't believe I've found another copy of this European LP. The cover on this one is super clean and nice, with the only issue being slight cracks in the seam at top center ad bottom center. Still, it's NMINT. The vinyl, per the collector who sold this to me, is MINT. Overall, this is a beautiful, NMINT+ copy. It's $14.00.
COPY #4. The cover on this copy is clean and nice but does have a couple of bends near two corners and on the back there's an abrasion from the removal of a price sticker. It's EX. The vinyl is a seldom-played NMINT-, with the only issue being a slight scuff on one side which does not affect play. Overall, this one is EX+. $8.00.
COPY #5. The cover on this one is still in shrink wrap. It's MINT. The vinyl looks like it might have been played once. It's NMINT++. Overall, this copy is NMINT+++. $15.00.
JUNE CHRISTY, THE BEST OF JUNE CHRISTY -- Capitol ST-1693
Here's a great vocal LP, which has Maynard on the track "Something Cool," recorded 8/14/53. It's got a nice picture of June on the cover, and dates to the late '50s.
COPY #1. The cover on this copy has a 1" spine split at upper right, and just the tiniest bit of record ring wear, mainly visible on the back cover. Still, it's a very nice cover -- EX to EX+. The vinyl has two or three very light surface scuffs. It's NMINT-. Overall, this copy is EX+. $5.00.
JUNE CHRISTY, THE BEST THING FOR YOU (UK RELEASE) -- Affinity AFF145
Here's a great vocal LP, extremely rare in the U.S., which has Maynard on the tracks "Something Cool" and "I'll Take Romance," recorded 8/14/53. It's quite nice, with super liner notes, and a different cover than any of the U.S. June Christy releases.
COPY #1. Just in, here's the first copy of this relatively rare LP I've ever had for sale on the website. The front cover on this copy is marred by the initials "CJ" written in ink. If it wasn't for that one problem, this would be a NMINT+ cover. As it is, it gets a NMINT-. The vinyl is NM+!!! Absolutely super condition! This relatively rare LP is yours for $15.00.
