Offered for sale is a still sealed original U.S. pressing of Mariah Carey, the self-titled 1990 debut LP by Mariah Carey.
About this copy: This copy of Mariah Carey is an original U.S. issue on the Columbia label.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The wrap is fully intact, with no rips, tears, or holes. There is a very tiny dent in the lower right hand corner.
A beautiful copy of a terrific LP that’s hard to find as a first issue, as nearly all copies of the first release were sold on compact disc.
Background: Mariah Carey was a debut LP, but it reached #1 on the U.S. charts and was certified 9 times platinum by the RIAA.
This extremely impressive debut is replete with smooth-sounding ballads and uplifting dance/R&B cuts. Carey convincingly seizes many opportunities to display her incredible vocal range on such memorable tracks as the popular “Vision of Love” (featured during her television debut on The Arsenio Hall Show, an appearance noted by many as her formal introduction to stardom), the energetic “Someday,” and the moody sounds of the hidden treasure “Vanishing.” With this collection of songs acting as a springboard for future successes, Carey establishes a strong standard of comparison for other breakthrough artists of this genre.
