About this copy: This copy of Hits of the 50s is an original U.S. stereo pressing on the RCA black label with the dog on the top.  It’s a fairly early pressing with 5S/7S stampers.

The cover is VG, with general wear.  The disc is VG+, with a few scuffs from the heavy paper inner sleeve (included) but no significant marks.

A nice copy of an LP that’s hard to find as a stereo first pressing.
