Rare 78 by The Storey Sisters. Songs are: "Bad Motorcycle" b/w "Sweet Daddy". Original U.S. issue on Cameo Records #126 released in January 1958.

Condition is E to E+ (Excellent) some light cosmetic surface scuffs/sleeve marks, not deep. Appears lightly played and sleeved well stored over the years.

I use the VJM (Vintage Jazz Mart) standard for grading 78s.

The VJM Record Grading System

N (78) M (LP). As new and unplayed (there are virtually no 78s that can categorically be claimed to be unplayed). N- (78) M- (LP). Nearly Mint, but has been played. No visible signs of wear or damage.

E+ (78) VG+ (LP). Plays like new, with very, very few signs of handling, such as tiny scuffs from being slipped in and out of jackets.

E (78) VG (LP). Still very shiny, near new looking, with no visible signs of wear, but a few scuffs and scratches.

E- (78) VG- (LP). Still shiny but without the lustre of a new record, few light scratches Some wear, scratches and scuffs, but no skipped or repeat grooves.

V+ (78) G+ LP. V+ is 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. LP: Below average with scuffs and scratches on fewer than half the tracks. No skips or repeat grooves

V (78) G (LP). Moderate, even wear throughout, but still very playable. Surface noise and scratches audible but not intrusive.

V- (78) G- (LP). 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. LP: Lowest Grade. Audible scratches, etc. on more than half the tracks. Listening uncomfortable.

G+ (78) Grey throughout but still serviceable. Music begins to sound muffled. Heavy scratches.

G (78). Quite seriously worn and scratched, but music level is still higher than surface noise.

F (78). Most of music remains audible over surface noise, but listening now uncomfortable.

P (78). Unplayable

NB: Damage to labels and jackets (LP) should be noted whenever present.
