Today on Ebay, February 11, 2009

Quite a few mid-tier items up early on eBay today, so I am up early to post them. Here are a few:

We’ve been talking a lot about Andy Warhol covers on the site. Here’s a chance to get one, perhaps at a bargain price because the seller didn’t realize that the cover is by Warhol: Count Basie, RCA 1112. This is not in great shape, but it’s only $1.99 and closing fairly soon. A few weeks ago, we recorded one of these in the Jazz Collector Price Guide for $161. 

The seller Tuneup Music has quite a large group of pretty nice records for sale this morning, including Blue Mitchell Big Six, Riverside 273. This is an original blue label pressing. The record is VG++ and the cover is VG+. The current price is $75. Also from this seller is a sealed copy of Larry Young, Into Something, Blue Note 84187. This is already at $125. The challenge with a sealed record is not knowing whether it’s an original label, so, personally, I’d be careful on this one. If you look at these records, you should click View Seller’s Other Items because there’s a lot more.

A Few More Warhol Covers

There’s been a lot of back-and-forth on Jazz Collector recently about Andy Warhol covers. Here are a few more that sold recently, including a couple for pretty high prices. All of these will be entered into the Jazz Collector Price Guide this week. These first two are from Euclid Records, so they received top dollar: Kenny Burrell, Blue Lights Volume 1, Blue Note 1596. This was an original West 63rd Street pressing. The record was VG++ and the cover was M-. The price was $698.89. The second was Kenny Burrell, Blue Lights Volume 2, Blue Note 1597. This was a New York USA pressing without the deep groove. Clearly not a first pressing. It was in M- condition, record and cover. It sold for $343.88, which seems to tell us that the demand for these Warhols is pretty high right now. Another LP with a

Today on eBay, Feb. 2, 2009

Here are some of the items we at Jazz Collector are watching on eBay today: 

The previously mentioned Euclid Records has a few nice items up today, including Charlie Mariano Sextet, Fantasy 3-10. This is a 10-inch LP in M- condition. The current price is $76. 

Here’s another one for the $1,000 record bin, or perhaps even the $2,000 bin: Thelonious Monk, Prestige 7053. This is the one with the cover design by Andy Warhol. The record is only in VG condition and the cover is VG+, yet the price is already at $1,775. The same seller has another Warhol cover: Artie Shaw, Both Feet in the Groove, RCA 1201. This is an original pressing and it looks to be in at least VG+ condition. The current price is $71. 

Finally, here’s a pretty Norgran currently in the $50 price range: Johnny Hodges, Ellingtonia ’56, Norgran 1055. This one is in what looks like VG++/VG+ condition.
