Title: Scarey Day Blues & Stomp Down Rider
Artist: Georgia Bill (pseudonym for Blind Willie McTell)
Label & Number: Okeh 8936
Defects: Both sides of the record are extremely clean - no rubs, scuffs, scratches, pits, lam cracks or any other defect. However, there is a little groove wear on side one that will cause some background noise. Side two plays perfectly.
NOTE: Any fine white horizontal lines in the image are the result of scratches on my scanner glass. They are NOT a defect on the record.
Overall Condition (1 to 10 scale): 9
Comments: Blind Willie McTell wrote both songs, as well as performing them.

In response to requests, two more full record photos have been added. As above, please remember that the faint white horizontal lines in the images are caused by scratches in my scanner glass. The surfaces of the record are Near Mint, with no scratches, rubs, pits, scores, or any other sonic defect. The only defect is that there is some groove wear on side one (Scarey Day). A listening test leads me to estimate that surface noise on side one is about 10% higher than on side two, which has no wear. I currently have over 6000 unsolicited positive feedbacks (100%). Feel free to browse them to see what my other customers think of my grading.
