A rare and highly collectible record in truly exceptional condition.This record is from the estate of a West Coast DJ, record store employee, and lifetime jazz record collector who was actively collecting from the late 1940's through the mid-1970's. In his latter years, he became a hoarder of clothing, which eventually covered his record racks... leaving the LPs buried, protected from sunlight (and use) for decades. As such, the records in this collection remain uniquely well-preserved.
