This handsome LP – a still-sealed copy – from Mercury (MG 50211, US pressing, label iteration unknown – presumably plum/silver label, mono) entitled “Vive la Marche!” features Paul Paray and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in a rousing collection of symphonic marches, their performances imbued with tremendous panache, and no little poetry.

CONDITION – PLEASE READ VERY CAREFULLY:

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

The condition of the jacket is EXCELLENT. Although this is a genuinely still-sealed copy, this was a “cut-out” copy and there is a drill hole that passes through the jacket (and through the label of the LP). In addition, there is minor bumping at corners and a small tear to the cellophane. Otherwise, the album is like new – overall, an excellent collector's copy.

The condition of the LP is MINT. This is a still-sealed, unplayed copy – the ideal collector's copy. (Note: There is a drill hole through the label – see the description of the jacket above).
