Wow! Here is an absolutely impossibly rare 45 RPM record from Lillie Bryant entitled "Mama" / "Meet Me Halfway". The single is on Tay-Ster Records TS 6016. From everything I researched, this is an original pressing. Here is the pertinent information that should confirm that this is the case:
- The run out in the dead wax is "1257" and "1258" on each side. Per Discogs, this is consistent with the original pressing.
- This record was purchased as part of a small, curated collection of similar northern soul 45's mostly from the 1960's.
- The catalog number, artist, title, and appearance of the record are consistent with the original pressing on Tay-Ster.
The record is in VG condition, at the least. I am likely under grading, but I wanted to be conservative. I can see light marks/scuffs on each side, but I play tested both sides and they sound strong. No skips, no significant playback issues. Just some typical background noise.
