RTB Big Band LPs with Maynard Ferguson
BIG BAND RTB WITH AMERICAN GUESTS, CLARK TERRY, JOHNNY GRIFFIN, NATHAN DAVIS, MAYNARD FERGUSON, ERNIE WILKINS -- RTB 2121719
Here is one of the very rarest LPs containing Maynard. It's a Yugoslavian pressing of Maynard with the RTB Big Band on the track Got the Spirit, recorded 11/13/68. Very, very hard to find!!! And be aware that most copies, which have a thin black cover, are subject to ring wear and creasing.
COPY #1. Just in, this copy has a relatively clean and nice cover. There's virtually none of the typical record ring wear. But there's some minor creasing all along the edges (absolutely typical), a bit of roughness on the spine, a 3" seam crack at bottom center, and two repaired sticker tears on the back cover. From the front, this is one of the nicest looking copies I've seen, but the little flaws do add up, and I don't feel I can rate this cover better than EX. The vinyl is ultra clean and nice, is easily NMINT++, and may be MINT, never-played. Just a super copy, overall it's in NMINT- condition. Easily worth the asking price of $65.00.
COPY #2. Just in, this one is one of the nicest copies I've seen. The cover does have a few minor creases (like they all do), but otherwise, it's in great shape, with almost no flaws at all. It's a NMINT cover, and for this release, that's really saying something! The vinyl is a pristine NMINT++, and maybe has been played once, or even not at all. Just a spectacular, NMINT+ copy, this one is $75.00.
COPY #3. Just in, this one is one of the nicest copies I've seen. The cover does have a few minor creases (like they all do), but otherwise, it's in great shape, with almost no flaws at all. It's a NMINT cover, and for this release, that's really saying something! The vinyl is a pristine NMINT+. Just a spectacular, NMINT to NMINT+ copy, this one is $70.00.
COPY #4. The cover on this one is relatively clean and nice. There's almost zero record ring wear, which is highly unusual for this LP. There's a 1" corner bend at upper right, and the tip is bent at lower right. There's a 3" crack in the center of the spine. But this is really and truly one of the nicest covers I've seen on this LP. I'd rate it as EX+. The vinyl is a clean and nice NMINT. Overall, this one is NMINT-. It's $65.00.
