For the Price Guide: Trane, Sonny, Monk, Mobley
We are up in the lovely Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts, sitting on our porch with the lovely Mrs. JC, and looking at jazz records on eBay. Life is not bad. Here are a few items we will be entering into the Jazz Collector Price Guide sometime before the end of the weekend.
John Coltrane, A Love Supreme, Impulse A-77. This was an original stereo pressing with the orange label and gatefold cover. It was in M- condition, both record and cover. It sold or $150. One of the reasons I’m putting this up is that I recently acquired a mono copy in M- to go with my stereo copy, also in M- condition, and I am currently deciding whether to keep both or put one up for auction on eBay, or, perhaps, even sell it here on Jazz Collector. I am open to offers and/or suggestions.
Thelonious Monk, Prestige 7053. This was an original pressing with the cover design by Andy Warhol. It was in VG++/VG++ condition
and sold for $810.
Hank Mobley, Blue Note 1544. This was a West 63rd Street pressing. The record was listed as VG++ and the cover was listed as G. The price was $276.28.
Eddie Costa, House of Blue Lights, Dot 3206. This was an original pressing in M- condition, both record and cover. Price: $543
Sonny Rollins, Worktime, Prestige 7020. This was an original New York pressing, also in M- condition, both record and cover. Price: $541
Dexter Gordon, Daddy Plays the Horn, Bethlehem 36. This was an original red label pressing. The record was M- and the cover was VG++. The price was $392.
Jackie McLean, 4, 5 and 6, Prestige 7048. This was an original New York pressing. The record was VG and the cover was VG+. The price was $328.
