We can’t spend too much time on eBay this morning because we have to watch the historic inauguration of Barack Obama, which is very exciting. But we’ve be able to cull through the next 24 hours worth of jazz collectibles, to bring you a few gems that are being offered today by various sellers. Foremost among these sellers is Euclid Records, which always seems to come up with some goodies. Here are a couple: Serge Chaloff, Blue Serge, Capital 742. This is an original pressing. The record is M- and the cover is VG++. The current price is $294. Also from Euclid is Serge Chaloff, Boston Blow-Up!, Capital 6510. This also seems to be an original pressing. The record is M- and the cover is VG++. The current price is $33. Goes the presence of Sonny Clark on Blue Serge make that much of a difference in the value between these two records?
Also coming up today on eBay are:
A beautiful copy of Sonny Rollins and the Modern Jazz Quartet, Prestige 7029. This is a copy with the original orange cover that had the wrong catalogue number (Prestige 7020 instead). It has the original yellow label and is in M- condition, also from Euclid Records. The current price is $430.
Another nice Prestige: Hal McKusick, Triple Exposure, Prestige 7135. This is an original New York pressing. It looks to be in about VG+ condition, record and cover. The current price is $46.
