The cover is M- and still retains the original shrink wrap. The word “multi” is written on the back of the shrink wrap in black marker; this can be removed if you like. It’s on the wrap and not on the cover.
The disc is M- and appears to have had little, if any, play. A beautiful copy of a very rare record.
Background: Come Go With the Del Vikings was the only album ever released on the small Luniverse label, which was mostly known for the novelty recordings of Dickie Goodman. In 1957, when the Del Vikings had a #1 hit with “Come Go With Me,” Luniverse got their hands on an early demo tape by the group, overdubbed some instruments on the existing recording and released it in order to cash in on the group’s success at another label. Buyers didn’t get much for their money; the album only contained 8 songs and had a running time of about 10 minutes per side.
Due to legal issues, the album was soon withdrawn from the market and is quite rare today. Sometime around 1980, the album was reissued by persons unknown in an unauthorized edition that contained two additional tracks. Most of these LPs were pressed on black vinyl, but a handful of them were pressed on beautiful, four-color multicolored vinyl. They were sold at a premium price as “collector’s items” at the time.
