Jazz Vinyl Update: A Smattering of 10-Inch LPs

Let’s catch up on some jazz vinyl we’ve been watching on eBay, starting with: Thelonious Monk Trio, Prestige 189. This looked to be an original pressing, a 10-inch LP, of course, and it was in VG++ condition for both the record and the cover. The price was $227.50.

Here’s another 10-incher: Howard McGhee, Volume 2, Blue Note 5024. This one was VG+ for the vinyl and between VG++ and M- for the cover. When we were watching it it was in the $150 range and it didn’t really move from there, selling for $159.50.

This 10-incher didn’t sell at all: Lester Young and his Tenor Sax, Aladdin 706. This one was in VG- condition for the record and VG+ for the cover. The start price was $99.99 and there were no bidders.

May as well stick with the 10-inch theme today: Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers Volume 3, Blue Note 5039. This was listed in VG++ condition for both the record and the vinyl and sold for $229.

    Were you taught to not rush into things? So I am perusing Blue note records yesterday and I come across a 10 inch KENNY DREW TRIO for $59.99.
    I dismiss it thinking it’s probably Japanese. Well, I think to myself , “Man, I better go back and look.”
    Sure enough it’s original. Don’t rush in. Get facts. Stay calm. Ok, the seller is a very trust worthy seller that I have bought from before.
    Hey grades VG on the record and says there are a lot of scuffs but no deep scratches.

    Do I push the button? Reasonable thinking here. Maybe I’ll call him. So I call them up to get his visual on the record. Ok, I decide to buy the item. I go back to
    Ebay to push the magic button and guess what. It’s gone. A goner! Sold! Snubbed from under me! Adios ma chacha!
    This couldn’t of been more than 4 or 5 minutes tops. Lesson? Sometimes you need to take that chance! I’ve been burned by rushing in but I’ve also
    Had great luck as well. Goes to show it’s just a crap shoot! Good luck all you collectors of great lps and have fun!

  • Was it the copy that Euclid had up yesterday? I came pretty close to pushing the button myself.

  • Zarabeth47, I struggled with those last minute high bidders for a while, too, until the older cats here told me to use “sniper” software. Personally I use the online sniper of GIXEN. It works like a charm for me. Just place your max amount in, log out and go to bed; the program will snipe for you in the meantime 😉
