  1. No value?

    I ran into this this last week too in fact. After our most recent move, I decided it was time to get rid of my rock CDs so I hauled about 800 or so to a local used book/record store. They accepted about 20 discs, claiming the rest were in too poor of condition to take; while some may have been a little scuffy, most were in perfectly fine shape, some basically brand new. I tried my hand at a record store with a large CD section and they took another 10, also claiming the discs were in poor condition. The irony of course, is that both places, and every place, happily sells LPs in truly deplorable condition for premium prices. So now I suppose the last refuge is a donation to Goodwill; hopefully someone will be made happy by them, though I'm doubting it more and more. I also set aside a few rare CDs that generally list for a good amount of money secondhand to sell on Discogs. I priced them far below the other copies on there and there again seems to be no interest whatsoever. So yes, unfortunately, no value as far as I can tell. I dread to think what will come of my jazz, blues, experimental, and ethnographic CDs when I die, which could be 50 years from now. It'll all go to the dump.
  2. FMP OWN Series

    Awesome, thanks. That's a bit like what I was thinking. It's very good. I would also highly, highly recommend August/Carl/Korn - Blank. It's incredible.
  3. FMP OWN Series

    Out of curiosity, does anyone here have any particular details about the short series of discs released by FMP in the 90s that carried an OWN-9000x catalog number? Were these produced or organized by a particular musician, or around any particular theme? I have several but none contain notes to that effect; best I can think is that they contain some of the more experimental (ha!) music on the label, with often liberal use of electronics, overdubbing, etc. Anyways, some very interesting and worthwhile music on these albums.

  4. Monk and Lacy

    This picture was featured on the cover of both editions of We See.
  5. I have Amazon CD-R copies of John Patton's Blue John and Accent On The Blues if anybody would like them. Both play just fine. The printing on Blue John is very good, while the printing on Accent leaves much to be desired. But the music is fantastic!
  6. SOLD Euro Jazz Boxes Three-Fer

    PE Hewitt is actually American, but this is a great set of raw private press modal stuff, well worth having.
  7. Hat Compilations of Marion Brown and Albert Ayler

    I say viable because those were available only overseas for a few months and now list well over $100 when they even turn up. edit: which is of course egregious because they’re stone bootlegs anyhow
  8. Hat Compilations of Marion Brown and Albert Ayler

    Terrible not to just reissue Juba-Lee in full. The ESP date has been widely available for decades, while the Fontana has never had a very viable CD release. Really disappointing.
  9. Dave Bartholomew is 100 years old!
  10. What's odd about these companies falling under the same umbrella is that their pricing is so different. I find importcds to always be cheapest, shipping is free, and as Felser said they usually run bulk discount deals on ebay. Collector's Choice sells through Discogs and charges $3 per item to ship, no combination, so they're almost always a terrible deal.
  11. I really like decluttr (though their pricing seems to be moving toward the more algorithmic model, so I think the age of amazing deals from them is over) though yes I do only buy from them when I feel certain I will receive the pressing I'm looking for.
  12. I just ordered from them accidentally-- if I had known who it was I wouldn't have placed the order. Paid immediately, no activity for 5-6 days; sent a message through ebay asking if it had shipped, got a shipping notice about 30 minutes later. It's through DHL, which in my experience is always a complete disaster. Currently bouncing around like so ^ Edit: Forgot to mention, the seller name on ebay is bargainbinmedia, but it's just Movie Mars. Trash.
  13. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    This one is so magical I almost try to listen to it sparingly. Thus, it's always a special day when it gets a spin.
  14. The Rob Brown group stuck out to me as one I'm really looking forward to hearing. Also a huge fan of the Trio Exaltation record on clean feed.
