    Description

    Gatemouth Moore Sings the Blues Mono LP (King 684, 1960). For an LP issued only 48 years ago, this one's valued mighty highly. Why? It's rare, baby! One of the rarest Blues records of all pressed by a major label. It's estimated the initial pressing was for just 200 copies, and most of those didn't sell! The Kansas City Bluesman hit his stride in the 1940s, but essentially gave up secular music in 1949 to concentrate on Gospel. This 1960 release is actually a compilation of some of his recordings from his '40s heyday. When we offered this very copy before, we described it as possibly the finest copy in existence, and we'll stand by that. It may be a long time before we even see another copy! Condition: EX 7/ NM 8.
