Johnny Hodges, "Collates No. 2", Original 10" Mono LP, Deep Groove, Clef MGC-128, 1953, with trumpeter logo label; SIGNED on the slick at his photograph by the great alto saxophonist. A delightful David Stone Martin cover illustration, uncharacteristically without his signature, but cited in Manek Daver's DSM monograph, Jazz Graphics, pp 64, with Martin's statement explaining the umbrella theme: "Johnny Hodges music made me think of rain". The cover is about fine, clean, with tight seams, a touch of rubbing to bottom of spine and lower edge of front panel, light soil and price notation to slick. The playing surfaces are visually very good+; the record appears to have been only lightly played with a few scuffs and hairline scratches. The album itself is uncommon and scarce signed, in collector's condition. J1956
