Incidentally, the Vernon Dalhart Black Patti that he couldn't sell last week has been relisted as a Buy It Now for $1,250.00. Pony up!

> Just got the Timely Tunes 78 that I won from Frederick Tussey on eBay (by King's Hawaiians, a pseudonym for (King) Bennie Nawahi - It was described as being in "VG" condition, but was sold "as is". I took a calculated risk on this record, so I am not going to return it, but both sides are closer to G. Heavy graying of grooves with surface-noise-to-music ratio being about 60/40. Just a word to the wise to anyone interested in bidding on his records. He either overgrades or - and I believe the latter is the case - he doesn't know the first thing about grading (or spelling, I might add), which is why he couches his descriptions in all kinds of caveats. I'm not returning the record because, as Malcolm informed me, both sides are alternate takes available only on TT. I have the first takes on a Montgomery Ward in E condition, so I'm fine with having this one, even at the price I paid for a record several grades below how it was described.
