About this copy: This copy of First Meetin’ is a 1968 Japanese pressing on the World Pacific label of an album that was originally released (in the U.S.) in 1964.  The album has been pressed on red “Everclean” vinyl.

The cover is VG+ with no wear, but with moderate foxing on the back.  There is a sticker on the spine near the upper left hand corner.  The obi is M-; the “hojyuhyo” (reorder tag) is still attached.

The lyric insert is M-.  The envelope style company paper inner sleeve is missing.

The red vinyl disc is M- on side one and VG++ and close to M- on side two.  There is a light inaudible scuff through the first track on side two.  There are a couple of spindle marks on the labels.

A beautiful copy of a pretty good blues LP that’s hard to find complete.

Background: Released in 1964, First Meetin’ is a blues album featuring Sam “Lightnin'” Hopkins, Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee and Big Joe Williams.
