Offered for sale is a rare white label promotional copy of the 1977 Lesley Gore compilation LP, Best of Lesley Gore – Rock ‘n’ Roll Collection, Vol. 4, released only in Japan and complete with obi.
Lesley Gore’s records sold fairly well in the United States, but not so well in Japan. While most of her 1960s albums were released there, they were only briefly available before being deleted. Instead, Mercury Records would periodically release compilation albums of her material to satisfy consumers who just wanted to hear the hits.
Best of Lesley Gore – Rock ‘n’ Roll Collection, Vol. 4, released in 1977 is the fourth volume in a series of hits albums by different artists, rather than the fourth volume of Lesley Gore recordings. It, too, was only available for a short time and we’ve only seen a couple of copies over the years. This copy is a white label promotional copy with an obi.
The cover is VG++ with a couple of very minor corner dents and very slight wear on the back cover. The obi is complete and is in VG+ condition. The record is M- and looks virtually unplayed. The lyric insert is included.
A nice copy of a hard to find Lesley Gore LP.
