Super rare 1st Press on Transition, Sun Ra debut album 1957. Rough copy. Half the cost of the next cheapest copy. 

No Booklet. Labels are falling off (Present but unglued after being VPI Cleaned).

Media: VG-

Sleeve: G+

Vinyl has plenty of surface scuffs, scratches and marks. A side is VG plays very well with some static, crackle and ticks occasionally, but very enjoyable. B side is G+ plays mostly pretty well with consistent surface noise and ticks, but has a few deep marks that cause pops, bit of groove wear throughout both sides as well, not too serious. Jacket presents alright, top seam and spine fully split. NO BOOKLET.
