'Kind Of Blue' was originally issued by US Colubia label license holder, Fontana, in the UK in 1960. Columbia began pressing vinyl in the UK in 1962 and until 1964 on the generic solid orange and black printed company label with 'Recording First Published...' label text.
This copy has the rough generic november 1964 - autumn 67 company labels with smooth perimeter, 33 speed, right label stereo 'arrows' and encircled P1960 publishing indicator. Right label text 'Copyright Control' is not abbreviated.
Vinyl has machine stamped (ms) and hand etched (he) matrix information:
Side 1: AA885113v1Y=1//420vv (ms, 12 O'clock) SBPG 62066 1Y (hw, 6 O'clock), no mother/stamper information
Side 2: AA885113v2Y=//420vv (ms12 O'clock) SBPG 62066 2Y (hw, 6 O'clock), mother/stamper A 5
The combination of the 32 mm pressing ring and matrix style and curved printing suggests an album pressed the by CBS/Oriole pressing plant using a Philips stamper.
Vinyl is held in a front laminated and back 'Patents Pending' texted Ernest J. Day picture cover with back hexagonal gold stereo sticker.
Cover is manufactured from two card stock and front cover top and bottom extension flips are glued under back cover. Back cover spine extension flip is glued under the front cover.
Condition: VG+ (Vinyl and Labels)/VG+(+) (Cover):
Vinyl is exceptionally bright and shiny and some degree of fine and light sleeve marks - looks like the album was used a fes times directly from the coarse outer sleeve.
Labels does not suiggest much play - hardly any sleeve wear - vinyl is overall graded VG+.
Front cover has a couple of mid-cover vertical 3 mm pressure marks - a little edge and opening wrinkling - all of this causing only very little laminate lift - also a series of tiny to small spots tears in a horizontal line just below the artist name - nothing grave though, nothing which disturbs the overall experience of the artwork.
Back is remarkable clean with only a very light degree of age ultra fine age spots.
Seams are straight and intact except for a couple of mm's on lower seam.
Unlaminated spine has a very light degree of wear - affecting the words '... Of Blue' to some degree.
Spine corners are pionty and perfect, opening corners has a touch of rubbing or denting. All in all a simply very nice VG+ cover - and overall a fine and decent copy.
