This remarkable album - first released in 1967 - was produced by Howard Scott and engineered by Paul Goodman. The striking cover art was executed by An. Girard and there are superlative liner notes on the reverse side of the jacket by C.J. McNaspy, S.J., D. Mus. (Music Editor of America and a leading authority on the new English vernacular Roman Catholic liturgy) and by Paul Affelder.


The gradations of condition I use are as follows: MINT, Near-Mint, Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair, Poor.

The condition of the jacket is VERY GOOD. There is a bend/crease to the upper-right corner, slight crushing to the upper edge, and minor aging. However, there are no seamsplits, owners' markings, or other defects, and the album remains very solid, bright, glossy, and attractive - overall, this is a very good collector's copy.

The condition of the LP itself is near-MINT. Although surfaces are not absolutely silent (and thus I have rated it NM vs. MINT), really this is a very fine copy and playback is truly superb. However, if you must have absolutely perfect surfaces, then please do not buy this LP. Overall, this rates as a very fine collector's copy.
