Okeh 8907 by Elder Charlie Beck
When The World's On Fire / Drinking Shine = E hc nap
Excellent condition, looks close to N-, tight hairline crack into ¾ of playing surface from edge, only visible on side a, appearing more as a very light crease - side b, taped on edge, not affecting play, low surface noise (hear sample), piano/vocal - side b, late Okeh 8000 issue, great early performances recorded at King Edward Hotel, Jackson, MS, 1930
Records are graded visually and confirmed by playing. I grade 78s conservatively using the VJM scale. This means records graded N- are nearly spotless and records graded G, although considerably worn, still play with music being slightly dominant to surface noise. Specific flaws will be noted along with the grade.
N- (almost New) E+, E (Excellent, low surface noise) E-, V+, V (Very good, medium surface noise) V-, G+, G (not so Good, heavy surface noise but still plays) G-, F (Fairly bad) P (Poor)
