A Blue Note Monday
Here’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.
