 Original pressing of Helen Merrill's name title album, with Quincy Jones arrangements and (probably) Clifford Brown's first recording.

Self-title EmArcy MG-36006, 1st mono pressing, laminated front cover, blue print on the back is indicator of the first pressing, deep grooved labels. Very collectible record in rare pristine condition with a presentable jacket and anti-static sleeve. Jacket has my 2 catalog labels and a name stamp.

Free insured Priority shipping to the 50 states.

For foreign shipments, if the US Post Office will not insure shipments to your country, I'll let you know and you have the option to cancel. If you still want to complete the sale, that transfers the risk of loss or damage from me to you.

                                                I've been selling collectible vinyl and shellac as Records For Recollectors since 1963. The day JFK was murdered I was typing my first catalog. I sell original US issues, not re-issues or imports. The vast majority of the surfaces are near mint or mint. My collection of mono LPs mostly date from 1947 through 1961. Scarce obscurities throughout, offered only on ebay. My hearing is shot so it's all for sale now. NOTE: All my record jackets have my catalog number on the back, upper right, and a photo to show it.              


Insured shipping is free to most of the world when bid exceeds $300. Below that bid, shipping is by Media Mail in the US and Priority Mail to Canada. Overseas shipments will be insured when possible but we ship FOB Charlottesville VA. USA and cannot guarantee overseas delivery. We combine shipments to cut postal costs.

     This item will be shipped FOB from Charlottesville, VA, USA
where it is available for preview and pick-up.      

     I don't use packing peanuts - recyclers hate them, and they never decompose.

(I'm also useraccount1)          

On ebay since 1996

         One of ebay's early users. Started here in 1996 using my email address for an ID when that was allowed. Changed to useraccount2 on Feb. 1, 1998.          

         Partly responsible for what's wrong here because my wife and I were in the 2002 ebay focus group that was shown nationwide on PBS.                         

         Mostly-retired political consultant, consent technician, real estate broker, journalist, educator          

         Buyer & seller of rare recordings as Records For Recollectors since 1963          

         On eBay we sell old records of all types, open reel tapes, art, early radios, my life-long collection of Zenith Trans-Oceanic portables, rare (sometimes very rare) books, US and foreign coins and currency, autographs and photos, rare magazines and ephemera, etc.          

         Quality items at low volume
         We stand behind them 100%
         We pack to professional standards
         We answer email as soon as we see it          

         Two guidelines we use:
         We don't say it's antique unless we believe it is over 99 years old. The only exceptions are motor vehicles, boats, radios, and phonographs which are ruled by a different convention.          

         In a collectibles industry filled with frauds and fools we are never the first and seldom the second. Coins, currency, autographs, photos, and all other collectibles we ever sold are backed with a 100% guarantee of authenticity. That includes the item(s) in this auction.          

We use to sell books at half.com under the alias "Sobriquet" until
         eBay ruined half.com by stealing from the sellers. (Shame on eBay.)          

                  - Our eBay Sales & Packaging Record -          

         Approx. 1,500 items sold
         7 returns = 99.994% satisfaction
         3 destroyed by United Parcel so now we use FedEx = 99.997% safe delivery
         1 destroyed by the post office because I didn't double box when called for.
         Lost in transit = 0
         (That's luck)
