Tracking Some High-End Jazz Vinyl
Here’s some high-end jazz vinyl collectibles we’re watching on eBay, starting with: Kenny Dorham, Afro-Cuban, Blue Note 1535. This looks to be an original pressing, although the seller could certainly be more forthcoming with details. Then again, the seller has a rating of just 98.1 percent, so that could be a warning right there. The record is listed in M- condition and the cover is VG. The bidding is close to $800 and there are still two and a half days left on the auction.
Another Blue Note: Johnny Griffin, The Congregation, Blue Note 1580. This looks to be an original pressing and, of course, it has the Andy Warhol cover. The record is listed in Ex condition and the cover is listed as VG+. The price is in the $400 range and there are more than two days left in the auction.
This looks like a rerun:
Tommy Flanagan, Overseas, Prestige 7134. This is offered from Atomic Records and it seems to be the same one that sold on eBay recently for $3,383. It is in M- condition for the record and VG++ for the cover. It just went up on eBay and the bidding is at $400. We’ll see if it approaches the $3,000 barrier again.
