Time to catch up on some of the items we’ve been watching on eBay:
We predicted this record would sell for a high price, and it did: Lee Morgan, Sextet, Blue Note 1541. This was an original Lexington Avenue pressing in VG++ condition. Price: $1,325
Another high-end Blue Note: Curtis Fuller, Bone & Bari, Blue Note 1572. This was an original pressing in M- condition. Price: $676.77
That Joe Newman LP with the Andy Warhol cover went for a bit less this week than it did a few weeks ago: Joe Newman, I’m Still Swinging, RCA 1198. Price: $57.77
Remember that Zoot record that was priced at just $30 a few hours ago. It wound up selling for $337.90: Zoot Sims, Zoot!, Riverside228.
And I really liked that copy of Art Taylor, Taylor’s Tenors, Prestige New Jazz 8219. It sold for $228.51. Not only is it a very cool cover, it’s one I don’t have in my own collection. Funny, I’ve been collecting for nearly 40 years and I still run across records I’ve never had a chance to buy, other than for top dollar on eBay.
I also spotted this one when it was in the $20 price range: Sonny Stitt, Kaleidescope, Prestige 7077. It eventually sold for $146.49.
There were a lot of other records on the radar that we looked at, and we’re not going to go into each one now, but we will include every one of them when we update the Price Guide later this week. But a lot of viewers looked at the Impulse article, so here are some updates on some of those LPs before we close:
John Coltrane, A Love Supreme, Impulse 77. This was in just VG/VG+ condition. Price: $162.50
John Coltrane, Ballads, Impulse 32. This was VG+/VG+. Price: $114.05
Finally, Charles Mingus, Mingus, Mingus, Mingus, Impulse 54. This was a white label promo copy in VG+/VG- condition. Price: $54
