For The $1,000 Bin: A Few More Blue Notes
Here are a few more of the records from the seller Natuiluso that are going into the $1,000 bin and are joining the Jazz Collector Price Guide as of today. They are all Blue Notes.
We had mentioned a couple of other Hank Mobley records previously, and here’s another: Hank Mobley with Farmer, Silver, Watkins, Blakey, Blue Note 1550. This was an original pressing and it was listed in M- condition for both the vinyl and the cover. It sold for $1,137, which is the first time we’ve recorded this particular LP at more than $1,000, which is also quite interesting to us because we do happen to own a copy in M- condition and $1,000 is language that kind of appeals to us.
Sonny Clark, Cool Struttin’, Blue Note 1588. We had mentioned that a copy of this record had set the previous high on Jazz Collector at $3,750. This one was in beautiful M- condition, but it feel just short of the previous high price: This one sold for $3,501.
Louis Smith, Smithville, Blue Note 1594. This was an original pressing in M- condition for both the vinyl and the cover. It sold for $1,524.
Finally, this one didn’t quite make the $1,000 bin, but it came close enough to be included in this post: Sonny Red, Out of the Blue, Blue Note 4032. This was an original pressing in M- condition for both the vinyl and the cover. It sold for $998.
