Smokey Hogg METEOR 5021 I DECLARE / DARK CLOUDS Clean Texas Blues
Both sides look about EE-, lightest traces of playwear, handling. Dark Clouds plays a clean loud EE-, a touch of background. I Declare plays EE+, clean and pure. Nice copy!

GRADING

I like the VJM grading system for 78 RPM records:

  • N. As new and unplayed (there are virtually no 78s that can categorically be claimed to be unplayed).
  • N-. Nearly Mint, but has been played. No visible signs of wear or damage.
  • E+. Plays like new, with very, very few signs of handling, such as tiny scuffs from being slipped in and out of jackets.
  • E . Still very shiny, near new looking, with no visible signs of wear, but a few inaudible scuffs and scratches.
  • E-. Still shiny but without the lustre of a new record, few light scratches.
  • V+. An average condition 78 in which scuffs and general use has dulled the finish somewhat. Wear is moderate but playing is generally free from distortion. Surface noise not overly pronounced
  • V. Moderate, even wear throughout, but still very playable. Surface noise and scratches audible but not intrusive.
  • V-. Quite playable still, but distortion and heavy greying in loud passages.Music remains loud in most passages.Surface noise and scratches well below music level.
  • G+. Grey throughout but still serviceable. Music begins to sound muffled. Heavy scratches.
  • G. Quite seriously worn and scratched, but music level is still higher than surface noise.
  • G-. Music still prominent, but wear and scratch damage extensive.
  • F. Most of music remains audible over surface noise, but listening now uncomfortable.
  • P. Unplayable
