Jul 19, 2012 Prestige
Here’s some more jazz vinyl we’re watching on eBay: Miles Davis, Relaxin’, Prestige 7129. This is an original New York deep groove pressing in M- condition for the vinyl and VG++ for the cover. The auction closes tomorrow and the price is in the $230 range. I mentioned in passing that I recently purchased a collection and an M- original pressing of this record was included, so I’m interested in seeing the price. I am just about ready to start writing about my latest adventure in pursuing and purchasing this collection, so stay tuned.
It would have been nice if there were a copy of this record in the collection but, alas, there was not: Hank Mobley, Mobley’s Message, Prestige 7061. This is an original New York pressing in VG++ condition for the vinyl and VG+ for the cover. The price is hovering in the $170 range with three days to go, but it has not yet reached the seller’s reserve.
This one is on the verge of closing as I write this post:
Eric Dolphy, Outward Bound, New Jazz 8236. This is an original deep groove purple label pressing in VG+ condition for both the record and the cover. The price is about $180, but by the time you read this it will have been sold.
One more nice Prestige while we’re at it: Jackie McLean, Lights Out, Prestige 7035. This is an original New York pressing in what is described as Ex or Ex/Ex+ condition. Still not sure how that translates into my grading system, but this one is currently at $450 and has surpassed the seller’s reserve price, so it will sell.
