About this Item

Not a book but a vinyl record. This 10-inch (25 cm.) 33-1/3 rpm record, "Longue Duree Microsillon," was made in France by Pathe and is coded "XPT 276 / 33 ST 1034," followed by an "S" in a circle, which appears to stand for "Standard," NOT "Stereo." Disc is near mint. Offers Mr. Romans' own "Serenade Mediterraneenne," as well as "Vaya Con Dios," "Rapsodie Suedoise," "La Fete Du Tabac," etc. Jacket split an inch and a half at outer bottom corner. Bottom two inches of jacket was damp at some point, though it shows little wear and retains most of its original gloss; we'll grade jacket "very good." Vertically across the white keyboard design is inscribed, in English, "To Lonesome" (though could be a more unlikely "Lonetoue") "my best wishes and my friendship forever. / Alain Roman." The words "best", "friend-", and the last three letters of "Roman" are blurred due to edge of jacket having once been damp, but remain legible. At upper right corner in a different hand previous owner has written "Taped 19 Aug. 92 Both Sides," though if European that date could be "72." Romans was bandleader and pianist for Josephine Baker in Paris in the 1920s and '30s, and recorded the soundtrack (solo piano) to Jacques Tati's classic film "Mr. Hulot's Holiday" in 1953 -- though Tati replaced the original piano score with a jazz combo in re-editing the film a decade later. This would be a $50 disc without signature. This is a vinyl 10-inch LP monaural (mono) record, not a book. Reduced from $77. Bookseller Inventory # 001366
