A Blue Note Monday

Candy jazz vinylHere’s some nice jazz vinyl we’re watching on eBay now, starting with: Lee Morgan, Candy, Blue Note 1590. This is an original pressing listed in VG+ condition for both the record and the cover. It is a relatively new listing, with more than six days to go, but the price is already in the $800 range with 16 bids as of this writing. Has the makings of a bidding frenzy, perhaps.

Charlie Rouse, Bossa Nova Bacchanal, Blue Note 4119. How often do you get to write the word “bacchanal?” This one is in M- condition for the record and VG++ for the cover. It is an original pressing and there are four days left on the auction. Bidding is in the $190 range.

Hank Mobley, Workout, Blue Note 4080. This is an original New York USA pressing listed in Ex condition for the record and VG++ for the cover. The auction closes later today and the bidding is in the $350 range.

Cannonball Adderley, Somethin’ Else, Blue Note 1595. This looks to be an original pressing listed in Ex condition. The start price on this is about $400 and there are no bidders with just a day left in the auction. The cover looks a little strange, if you check out the colors on the front. Wonder if the seller did some retouching? He also mentions minor surface noise in quiet parts.



  • Such great gems that would fit perfectly in my stocking this Christmas. So far, Santa always left it at new cologne or a good bottle of single malt… 😉

  • Mattyman – I’d take either of those! My poor lady has tried thrice to get me records and always comes close but let’s just say I have several “audiophile” reissues.

  • Well, I’ve decided a while ago to not put the Mrs through the hassle of sniping on eBay: explaining to her how it works would take all the fun out of it for her (and me). She did get me a handful of great Blue Notes once though, without my help. All reissues, but hey, it was nice: the thought counts.

    Merry Christmas to everyone 😉
