Paul Desmond - Skylark

(CTI Records CTH 1003 UK LP 1974)


This is the original UK pressing in great condition. It has a front laminated gatefold sleeve, & comes complete with its original polythene-lined company inner sleeve. The record has 1st press A-2/ B-1 matrix stampers. An excellent groovy mid 1970's jazz instrumental LP. Features some excellent guitar playing by Gabor Szabo. 

Gatefold sleeve: Very nice! It still has its originaal "Harlequins" record shop price sticker on the front. Otherwise there is mild wear only. VG+ condition.

Vinyl: Looks to be virtually unplayed! Just some extremely light sleeve rubs can be seen under a strong light. A strong EX+ condition. Plays very near perfect. The labels are lovely and clean and show minimal spindle wear.

Grading Information
Grading Information

All grading is very strict and adheres to 'Record Collector' specifications. However we have fine tuned them and they are explained below. All vinyl is examined closely under a strong light and play tested wherever possible.

MINT Condition = As good as a copy you would buy from a shop, immaculate!

NEAR MINT Condition = Very nearly mint just slightly under, maybe a couple of very, very light paper sleeve scuffs that can only be seen under strong light. SOME WOULD CLASS THIS AS MINT. This disc has been played a couple of times at most. Cover is virtually perfect - very minimal wear only.

EX Condition = A clean & tidy copy that shows virtually no defects. Maybe one or two light needle scuffs or light sleeve removal marks that can only be seen under strong light. There will be no scratches. Play will be near perfect with no distortion. Cover will be very nice with maybe very minimal creasing, ringwear or edgewear.

NEAR EX Condition = You can tell this record has been played a few times but it has been well cared for. There will be minor surface marks only; that barely detract from the sound quality. Cover may have slight creasing or ringwear. A very serviceable copy that you will be pleased with.

VG Condition = A well played but serviceable copy. There will be a few marks on the vinyl, but they won't be nasty scratches, just relatively light needle scuffs and sleeve removal marks, they will be noticeable but won't detract from play too much. Cover will show signs of storage/ ageing, e.g., creasing, slight folding, spinewear, ringwear or sticker tears. The record will not be trashed!!
