I was watching this record on eBay — Eric Dolphy, At The Five Spot, Volume 1, New Jazz 8260. Wasn’t necessarily planning to bid on it, although at $80 with 24 hours left it seemed like it might be attractive. I was surprised to look this morning and see that the record is up over $800. That’s the highest price I’ve seen for this record. It’s interesting to note whether we’re seeing that with other records as well — new highs — or whether this is just because the record is in great condition and it’s from a very reputable seller. Something to keep an eye on.
I’m back putting records on E-Bay as AJDoctor. I just put up a nice Jackie McLean LP and I’ve got about 35 records in all. I’ve also been watching a few interesting items the past couple of days. I was surprised to see this Tal Farlow record sell for $91. I love Tal, and I love this record, but I haven’t seen the market this strong for his LPs in a while. I was also watching this Art Blakey LP, which hit a bid of $222 but failed to meet the seller’s reserve price. I know I’ve promised before to be back blogging, so no promises this time. We’ll see how things go.
