Catching Up on Jazz Vinyl Auctions
I’m actually cleaning out my eBay watch list in preparation for finally doing a modest updating of the Jazz Collector Price Guide. So, as I clear out records, I will just post some random results for the next couple of days, starting with one for the $1,000 bin: Paul Chambers Quintet, Blue Note 1564. This was an original pressing with the West 63rd Street address. The record looked to be in VG++ condition and the cover was probably VG. It sold for $1,203. This came from the same seller: Kenny Burrell at the Five Spot, Blue Note 4021. This was an original West. 63rd Street pressing that looked to be in VG++ condition for both the record and the cover. It sold for $334.
Another Blue Note: Horace Parlan, Headin’ South, Blue Note 4062. This was
an original New York USA pressing. The record and cover both seemed to be in around VG++ condition. It sold for $400
Hank Mobley, Jazz Message #2, Savoy 12092. This was an original red label pressing that looked to be in about VG+ condition for the record and the cover. It sold for $330.
Booker Ervin, The Freedom Book, Prestige 7295. This was an original yellow label pressing in M- condition for the record and VG++ for the cover. It sold for $281.
Finally, that Bird boxed set of 78s we were watching wound up getting a relatively hefty price tag: Charlie Parker All Stars, Savoy S-510. This was a set of three records with the nice box and cover in VG+ condition. It sold for $159.16.
