A collection of 28 still sealed Lesley Gore albums, representing a nearly complete collection

$995.00




This listing is for a collection of twenty eight sealed American Lesley Gore albums.  These came from our collection, which we’ve assembled over the past 30 years.  Some of these titles are nearly impossible to find sealed, and this represents a rare opportunity to pick up just about everything of Lesley’s at once, including monos, stereos, and cover variations.  There’s at least one copy of every one of Lesley’s albums here except Lesley Gore Sings of Mixed-Up Hearts.

Titles in this lot are:

26. Stereo – A&M SP-4564 – Promotional copy.  6″ tear in wrap at spine.  Drill hole in cover (all promo copies had drill holes.)  Promo sticker on wrap.  Presumably a white label promo copy, though we have no way of confirming that.

27. Stereo – A&M SP-4564 – stock copy.  Tiny tear in wrap in lower right hand corner, otherwise wrap is intact.  This is a very rare stock copy; most copies of this record that turn up are promotional issues as this 1976 LP sold very poorly.  In fact, this is the only stock copy of this album we’ve ever seen.

The Canvas Can Do Miracles –

28. stereo 51West Q16261 – Scarce 1982 LP of cover songs, and Lesley’s last LP of new material.  Wrap is completely intact.  Beautiful copy.

We shouldn’t have to elaborate regarding how difficult it can be to amass a collection of sealed 40 and 50 year old records, so we won’t.  If you want a virtually complete collection of sealed albums by this iconic pop artist, here you go.
