Classic Vinyl From The Jazz Collector Era
Our friends at funkyousounds are back on eBay with some nice jazz vinyl closing this week, including Johnny Griffin, The Kerry Dancers, Riverside 420. This looks to be an original blue label pressing with deep grooves. The record is listed in VG++ condition and the cover is VG. The auction closes later today and the price is in the $170 range. Donald Byrd, Fuego, Blue Note 4026. This is an original West 63rd Street deep groove pressing. The record and cover both look to be in VG+ condition. The bidding is in the $220 range with one more day to go. One more: Miles Davis, The New Miles Davis Quintet, Prestige 7014. This looks to be an original pressing with the New York hello label and the original green cover. The record is listed in VG++ condition and the cover is VG+. The price is now in the $300 range, also with one more day on the auction.
This is an interesting record, but the seller still seems to be figuring things out in terms of how to list on eBay: Dizzy Reece, Asia Minor, New Jazz 8274. This looks to be an original purple label pressing with the deep grooves. The start price is $175 and so far there are no bids. There is also a buy-it-now price of $227.50. Also, the listing says “local pick-up only” in Palm Harbor, Florida. Somehow I don’t think the seller meant to only offer local pick-up, unless there’s a hidden cult of Dizzy Reece fans in Pal Harbor, Florida that we aren’t aware of. Just a lesson to proofread your listings if you are selling on eBay.
And, as is often the case, a golden oldie from my want list: Cliff Jordan, Cliff Craft, Blue Note 1582. This is an original West 63rd Street pressing listed in M- condition for the record and VG++ for the cover. It is a relatively new listing with more than six days to go. The bidding is in the $200 range and the seller has a reserve price that hasn’t yet been me. I would expect this one to well exceed $1,000, possibly $2,000. Certainly too rich for my blood.
