THIS COPY
Wonderful

Cover is intact with two promo punches. Original inner is present with promo punches. Record is in extraordinary shape but for one small spot at the end of track 1. It lets out a very quiet clicks that I consider inconsequential. Best copy of this extraordinary record that I’ve ever found. Allmusic says of this record: “Pithecanthropus Erectus was Charles Mingus’ breakthrough as a leader, the album where he established himself as a composer of boundless imagination and a fresh new voice that, despite his ambitiously modern concepts, was firmly grounded in jazz tradition. … And Mingus plays with the sort of raw passion that comes with the first flush of mastery. Still one of his greatest.” They give it 5 stars.
