Price: $15.00

Publisher: Los Angeles, United Artists Records, Inc.: 1972

Seller ID: 3349

Condition: Near Fine


Catalog no. BST-84415. Twelve-inch vinyl LP in original sleeve. The disc is near fine with awesome sound; the sleeve is very good with light rubbing and corner wear. Includes the original Blue Note catalog inner sleeve. Not only a surprisingly good soundtrack but a hoppin’ one! On the first track, you may wonder “why does it sound like a collegiate-level marching band doing music for a porno?” But then the funk kicks in and tympanist gets a little crazy, and it sounds great!

Grey cloth with black and red spine titles that read “The Great Chicago Fire” and a paper cover label, 15.5 by 23.6 cm, 85 pp. (see below). Very good with light wear at the extremities.
