Sorry for taking so long between posts. I had a ton of work on my real job, but no excuses. I promise to do better. So, let’s catch up on some of the records we missed while we were off in the real world.
I had my eye on this, but the price was too high even if I had been paying attention: Cliff Jordan, Cliff Craft, Blue Note 1582. This was an original West 63rd Street pressing in VG+ condition for both the record and the cover. I was looking at this with a couple of days to go and the price was relatively low. I thought, given the condition, perhaps it might be worth a snipe. It wound up selling for $1,125. However, I do have hope for acquiring this record in the future. I’ve got an idea I may be getting a copy for my birthday one of these days. How did I finagle that? I’ll tell you in another post this week.
John Coltrane, Blue Train, Blue Note 1577. This was an original pressing that looked to be in M- condition for both the record and the cover. It sold for $1,602.77.
Whilst we’re perusing the $1,000 bin, here are a few more:
Marty Paich, The Broadway Bit, Warner Brothers 1296. This was an original pressing in M- condition for both the record and the cover. It sold for $1,311. Wow. First time we’ve seen this one in the $1,000 bin on the Jazz Collector Price Guide.
Jutta Hipp With Zoot Sims, Blue Note 1530. This was an original Lexington Avenue pressing. The record looked to be M- and the cover was probably VG+. The price was $1,913.
One more: Cliff Jordan, Blue Note 1565. This seemed to be an original pressing, lacking the pictures to substantiate, however. It’s a risk. The record was listed as M- and the cover was probably VG+. The price was $1,110. For that money, I’d at least want a full picture of the cover and a picture of the label. Not too much to ask, is it?
