Catching Up Again: Andy Warhol Covers

Let’s catch up on some Andy Warhol covers.

Kenny Burrell, Blue Lights Volume 2, Blue Note 1597. This was an original pressing in M- condition for both the record and the cover. The price was $482. Frankly, we would have expected it sell for a higher price in this condition.

Thelonious Monk, Monk, Prestige 7053. This was an original pressing with the New York address. The record was listed in VG++ condition and the cover was VG++ as well. The price was $600.

Moondog, The Story of Moondog, Prestige 7093. This was an original pressing with the New York address. The record was in VG+ condition

and the cover was also VG+. The price was $250.50.

Finally, there was this: Joe Newman, I’m Still Swinging, RCA 1198. This was an original mono pressing in M- condition for both the record and the cover. The price was $203.50. The last time we tracked this record it sold for $58. Quite a leap.

  • Glad to see a picture of my burrell record win on JC! I decided to do a local pickup in case they didn’t know how to ship vinyl. The fact that I could pick it up was a big reason I bid so high in the first place. When I got there I waited for 20 minutes for the record (they said they were not expecting me although we ok’d time) so when they handed it to me I just checked the label quickly to make sure the right record was there. When I got home to check it out I noticed no blue note original inner sleeve even though they said it was there, also the record has a few pressing bubbles and a slightly feelable scratch.

  • Sorry, cut myself off- They wouldn’t give me a full refund becuase I “inspected the record upon recieving it.” They said that would have been different if I didn’t pick it up. Oh, well. They eventually gave me a $50 dollar refund, but I still feel slightly ripped off. The record sounds ok though, just some noise in the bubbles. Tina Brooks and Louis Smith WOW.
    I thought I would have learned my lesson and bid on only reasonably priced records, but I have a confession about the Konitz/Marsh record.
