We’re back from The Berkshires after our successful gig in the Monterey General Store and it’s time to get back to the ever-lasting grind that is eBay. We took a look at listings over the next couple of days, and it’s actually pretty quiet out there, although our friends at Euclid Records have a few nice items closing today. Here’s some of what we’re watching:
Tadd Dameron, Fontainebleau, Prestige 7037. This is an original New York pressing that is in M- condition for both the record and the cover. This one is not usually among the higher-priced early Prestiges, but the bidding is already at $162, which is nice to see for a nice record.
Zoot Sims and Joe Newman, Locking Horns, Rama 1003. This is a rare record on a rare label. The vinyl is listed as M- and the cover is VG++. The price is nearly $300, with more than an hour left.
Miles Davis, Miles, The New Miles Davis Quintet, Prestige 7014. This is the album that introduced John Coltrane to
most of the jazz public at the time. It is a beautiful copy, according to Euclid, in M- condition for both the record and the cover. The price is $439.
This one is from Atomic Records: Curtis Fuller, Bone and Bari, Blue Note 1572. This features Sonny Clark on piano. This looks to be in VG+ condition and is currently at $300.
Here’s a tier-two item that might make someone happy: Arte Shaw and his Grammercy Five, Volume 4, Clef 645. This one features a great cover by David Stone Martin — somewhat risque even — plus the presence of Tal Farlow on guitar. This vinyl on this one is M- and the cover is VG+. The price is just $30 at this point and we’re not sure it will get all that much higher.
