Phil Woods, Woodlore, Prestige 7018. As you may recall, this one was sitting at $200 with no bids and I was considering taking the plunge myself. Glad I didn’t. The record wound up selling for $527 — way beyond my comfort level — and, to make it worse, there is now a dispute about the sale, as you can see on the Jazz Collector site under the earlier post. From the same seller was: Charlie Rouse, Yeah!, Epic 16012. If you look at the listing, you’ll have a hard time figuring out the record’s condition. It says both ex+ and ex- and it talks about light scratches that will sound on both sides. Hmm. Someone paid $538 for this record. We’ll see if there’s a dispute about this one as well.
Wow — didn’t expect this record to reach the $1,000 bin: Hank Mobley, Workout, Blue Note 4080. This was an original New York USA pressing, with the RVG and ear in the deadwax. It was in beautiful M- condition for the record and cover and sold for $1,009.99.
This one also entered the $1,000 bin, but not all that suprisingly:
Johnny Griffin, The Congregation, Blue Note 1580. This was an original pressing that was listed in VG+ condition for both the record and the cover. It also, of course, has the cover designed by Andy Warhol. This one sold for $1,025. While we’re on the subject: Introducing Johnny Griffin, Blue Note 1533. This one was in VG++ condition for the record and VG for the cover. It sold for $909, quite a large number, considering the condition of the cover. But, who could resist an original Lexington Avenue Blue Note? Not me. I actually have two copies of this record.
