Here’s some jazz vinyl we’re watching on eBay that is not Blue Note, starting with: Duke Jordan, Jazz Laboratory Series, Signal 101. This is an original pressing that looks to be in VG++ condition for both the record and the cover. You don’t see these too often. This one is priced at about $130 with a couple of days to go.
Here are a couple of nice Norgrans: Lester Young, Lester’s Here, Norgran 1071. This is an original yellow label pressing and it is listed in VG++ condition for the record and VG+ for the cover. The current price is about $180. Then there’s this gorgeous one with the David Stone Martin cover: Lester Young, Norgran 1022. This one is also an original yellow label pressing and is in VG++ condition for the vinyl and VG+ for the cover. The price is about $160. I do have one small nit-pick for the seller, who I believe is Looney Tunes up in Boston, where I have spent many an idle afternoon and many a dollar. I wish they would use the whole picture of the cover, back and front, on their listings. I get the sense the use a scanner, which doesn’t show the whole image. I’d prefer seeing the whole thing as a potential bidder and also, as Jazz Collector, I’d like
to show the whole cover when I do a post. For what it’s worth.
Here are a couple of nice LPS on the New Jazz label: Jackie McLean, McLean’s Scene, New Jazz 8212. This seems to be an original purple label pressing, although it’s not clear whether it has the deep grooves. Hmm. The condition is VG++ for both the record and the cover and the current price is more than $220. Also, Eric Dolphy, Out There, New Jazz 8252. This is an original purple label pressing — with deep grooves — and is in M- condition for the record and VG+ for the cover. The start price is in the $200 range and so far there are no bidders. But there are five days to go, so we would definitely expect this to sell.
