An Early Prestige, A Few from KD
Wow, that last post drew quite a compelling discussion. I have yet to listen to that Ted Brown record, but it is definitely on the agenda. In the meantime, there are many interesting records currently for sale on eBay, including:
Jon Eardley Seven with Zoot Sims, Prestige 7033. This is an original New York yellow label pressing. The record is in VG+ condition and the cover is VG++. The start price is in the $300 range and, with nearly three days left in the auction, there are no bidders yet. We would expect this one to sell, but you never know. It is Prestige and not Blue Note, after all.
Kenny Dorham and the Jazz Prophets, ABC Paramount 122. This looks to be an original deep groove pressing. It’s not simple to decipher the condition based on the seller’s description, but I would guess that the record is between VG+ and VG++ and the cover is probably about the same. The start price for this one is $300 and, with less than two days left, there are no bidders.
Speaking of Kenny Dorham:
Kenny Dorham, Quiet Kenny, New Jazz 8225. This is an original deep groove purple label pressing that looks to be in VG++ condition for both the record and the cover. The pricing is in the $340 range with seven bids. There are more than two days left in the auction. There’s another copy of Quiet Kenny as well. This one looks to be in VG condition for the record, with no grading for the cover. Tough to bid without a full grading, as the seller is likely discovering. No action on this one yet with a start price of $399.
