Pete Rugolo 78 RPM Records with Maynard Ferguson


PETE RUGOLO AND HIS ORCHESTRA, COME BACK LITTLE ROCKET / THAT OLD BLACK MAGIC -- Columbia 40194

Maynard played with Pete Rugolo on these two tracks recorded 2/8/54. This is a VERY rare 78. I seldom see a copy, even though I'm constantly looking for one. And Maynard really WAILS on Black Magic!!!
COPY #1. Just in, this copy is a green label promo copy. It has a little tape residue on the labels, and one tiny (grain of rice size) spot where the label shows some damage. This is pretty typical on these early '50s 78s. The disc is pretty nice, with just a few scuffs and very light scratches. It's EX. Due to its relative rarity, this copy is $8.00.
COPY #2. Here's another of these little gems. It's also a green label promo copy. It has a little tape residue on each side of the label. Otherwise, the labels are undamaged. The disc has some light scuff marks and some very light scratches in a couple of places. It's EX. Due to its relative rarity, this copy is $8.00.
COPY #3. Here's a copy of this disc with green promo labels. Someone rubber-stamped the numerals "3427" on both labels, but they're otherwise almost like new. The disc is super on one side, and has a few scuffs on the other side. I'd rate it as EX. This copy is yours for $8.00.
COPY #4. This one is a normal, red label copy. It's got super clean and nice labels, and a NMINT- disc. Just a GREAT copy!!! Yours for $10.00.

COPY #1. Just in, this copy is a green label promo copy. It has a little tape residue on the labels, but otherwise, the labels are undamaged. The vinyl is really nice, and easily rates an EX+, although most dealers would call it NMINT-. A great copy. $9.00.
COPY #2. This one is another green label promo copy. It has heavy tape and sticker damage on both sides of the label. The vinyl is EX. Due to the label damage, just $3.00.
COPY #3. This copy has green promo labels. The labels are clean and quite decent, except for the numerals "3426" rubber-stamped on each side. The disc is EX+. Yours for $10.00.
