Jazz Vinyl From Blue Note and Vogue (6 comments)
Referencing “Related Posts,” the 1954 George Wallington “Showcase” 10-incher on Blue Note is a particular favorite of mine. I bought it when it came out, and have greatly enjoyed the arrangements and solos. Japan later issued a 12-inch LP that contai […]

Originals vs. Reissues, Another Point of View (51 comments)
If you collect records but never play the records, then sound quality means very little–right?

Looking at the covers, checking off the boxes of the have and have not become the sole reason for the hunt. But if you are buying the original pressin […]

A Trip To a Record Store (14 comments)
I sympathize. I live near Santa Cruz, California, where one long-standing record store, Logos, closed a few weeks ago. They had the annoying practice of putting those pesky price tags not only on the record cover, but also on the actual record label […]

Back to the Bridge and a Rare Blue Note (18 comments)
Shaft: I agree with you on the Not For Sale stamp probably not being an indicator of being from the beginning of a press run. Prestige promo’s were just stock copies that were hand stamped at their office as they were being sent out as needed. […]

Blue Notes and Monk at 100 (23 comments)
I think the seller of that Monk lp hurt himself by not accepting returns. I recently had a nice sale of a 10″ Monk which sold for an excellent price. I don’t think I would have had such attractive bids if I refused to accept returns. Accepting return […]

Chasin’ The Bird on Savoy (12 comments)
I have all four 10 inch Savoys in good order and all four 10″ Dials too in good order!
The original Savoys were in the coloured jackets (green, blue, red and yellow respectively) and had no advertising on the back – same with the Dials.
My Volumes […]

And Four Blue Notes, For a Price (18 comments)
There were certainly some crazy prices. I guess time will tell if whoever shelled out serious cash for that copy of Cliff Craft will be happy with something that could end up being more suitable for hanging on their wall than playing – I was glad I t […]

Guest Review: Goldmine Jazz Album Price Guide (24 comments)
Yes the Umphred guides were/are useful as catalog resources. The non Umphred guides are useless. I still have v1 and v2 and I refer to them from time to time.

FYI- 3.5% appreciation from 1994-2017 would be 2.206x the original price, and 5% […]

way too much money and no sense – Good one Matt. But there is bid rigging happening – ghost bids whatever. He has employees, NO DOUBT. This creates a further need to have it.

Promo Day (63 comments)
I moved my 2000 LP collection myself. Going through, transporting and refiling everything forced me to consider the value of what I owned. Many LPs that I paid next to nothing for are now worth upper 3 to low 4 figures. Even 70’s-90’s punk, power […]

Favorite Jazz Ballad Vocal Performances? (17 comments)
Don’t Explain by Helen Merrill. “Hush now” whisper-sung into a close Mike leaves by dead silent in listening rapture, and then Clifford Brown comes in with a solo that will make you weep for the day that this was put to wax. I have the crappiest or […]

Time For Bigger Bins? (18 comments)
David J – I think that a Blue Note completist might want this but from a jazz listener’s point of view the Blue Note 45’s that are part 1 and part 2 are like listening to an 8-track tape. I’ve bought several, mostly because of the picture sleeves, bu […]
