New Arrivals: Over 2,000 Jazz LPs!
You jazz lovers out there might have noticed that it's been a little while since we had a large jazz collection come in. Today we are pleased to announce a beauty of over 2,100 titles.
The gentleman who collected these over many years had eclectic jazz tastes (he worked for a jazz institute), and as a consequence the titles are all over the place. They range from swing, through Dixie and traditional, to the classic bop era, with a smattering of vocal and more modern jazz thrown in. He bought many of his records here throughout the years, and it is a lot of fun for us to see some of our original price stickers from the inception of our store (one is featured in our video). The records are for the most part in excellent shape; the collector clearly loved and took good care of his records.
This collection is not heavy on super-rarities. The vast majority of titles have been priced from $1.00 to $4.99, but there is a nice selection of later-press classic titles and a handful of original pressings. The two most notable are an original "homemade" Saturn pressing of Sun Ra's "Over the Rainbow" and a first press of Lee Morgan on Blue Note records 'Vol.3", 47 W. 63rd St. address, deep groove, no "R" on label, "RVG" and "ear" etches, very clean (just a slight scuff) with a glossy cover in great shape (small one inch fray on spine). As far as we can tell, this is one of the cleanest copies that have been put up for sale in several years.
For those of you who are unaware of our store, please note that we are a bricks-and-mortar, walk-in store only. Sorry, no mail order.
Hope to see you soon.
