This small 33 1/3 r.p.m. LP record is Excerpts from The Greatest Moments in Sports which was a promo to sell the full album. Produced by Bud Greenspan and James Hammerstein with actual sounds and voices. It was recorded especially for the Gillette Safety Razor company by Columbia Records. On side One are; Jack Dempsey, Joe Humphries, Gene Tunney, Jim Corbett, Tommy Farr, Clem McCarthy, Tony Galento, Joe Louis, Grantland Rice and Knute Rockne. Side Two has Jesse Owens, Roger Bannister, Clem McCarthy, Fred Capossela, Babe Ruth, Johnny Vander Meer, Loy Gehrig, Red Allen and Red Barber. Mel Allen is the narrator on both sides and the conversations span from 1919 to 1955. The sleeve for this record has information about all of the conversations.
The record measures about 6 7/8” in diameter and appears to be in nice condition with minimal wear. There are a couple of minor scuffs and one faint scratch. I don’t think either will cause much distortion but it is being taken into consideration in the price. The jacket measures about 7 1/8” square and is in fair condition. It appears there is a piece torn off the front above the picture at the bottom edge of the circle. The condition of it has also been taken into consideration in the price.
