Seller Notes: The record visually grades VG to VG+, but it is much closer to VG+ than anything else. Very faint paper scuffs, no feelable marks, plays M- and sounds great. Early, early Minneapolis R&B.

45 RPM

Record Size:

7"

This is Minnesota history.  This is Laura 1975, the earliest rhythm & blues record from The Big M's.  My source indicates the record was released in 1958, which pre-dates some of the rarest doo-wop records out of Minneapolis.  I have seen it listed as 1960, but my source indicates 1958.  

This record was recorded at Kay Bank Studios in Minneapolis and features Maurice McKinnies, who went on to be a very powerful force in Twin Cities R&B, soul and funk and the Munson Brothers.  

This was the only release The Big M's did.  From my research and reading, I have learned that all of the original acetates and tapes were thrown out back in the day.

The labels are in M- to EX- condition.  There is a catalog sticker on the flip side, but I have left it just as I found it.  

The record visually grades between VG and VG+.  Having said that, the record is much closer to VG+.  The record has light paper sleeve scuffs, but there are no feelable scuffs.  The record is flat and plays flat.  The record plays M- without any clicks, pops or anything else that would take away from enjoyment of the record.

I welcome hearing from you and know you would be proud to own this piece of Minnesota/R&B history.  I have recorded each song in its entirety below with my camera in HD.  I can also post MP3 samples as well.

To hear the A side and B side just as it comes from the record, please listen to it here below.

I can combine multiple auction wins to save on postage costs.

All 45 RPM/7" records will be sent in a 45 rpm mailer with a piece of cardboard on both sides of the record.  The 45 will be shipped to you with a protective plastic sleeve.  Any record in a picture sleeve or company sleeve will be mailed outside the sleeve to prevent damage of the sleeve.

I am more than happy to combine shipping on multiple record purchases.

I am a very picky grader and grade strictly. Something I grade as VG condition may be seen by others as VG+. I’d rather grade on the conservative side and have you be pleasantly surprised. Nothing is more disappointing than receiving records from people who grossly over-grade the condition of an LP or CD.

Postage and packaging rates are calculated below using the postage calculator.  All packages include a $1.25 handling charge that covers the cost of the heavy-duty cardboard mailer and cardboard inserts. 

I accept PayPal (my personal preference).  

Payment requirements:  Payment MUST be made within 7-10 days unless prior arrangements have been made.  I am a reasonable and flexible person, but if there is a delay with payment, please communicate with me.  Thank you.

PAYPAL USERS: If you win more than one item from me, please send payment as one payment only rather than paying me for each item separately.

Best of luck to you!
