Jazz In Paris

406 posts in this topic

I'm not REALLY a collector, but with the "Jazz in Paris" series, I really can't help myself. :)

BTW: My JiP page is still up and the revived site (elsewhere) will be up in July.

On that site, things have also been updated considerably.

Old site:

http://livingwithmusic.com/discographies-lists/lists/jazz-in-paris-gitanes-jazz-productions-universal-france/

New site: (NOT available at the moment, but bookmark it anyways):

http://deus62.com/discographies-lists/lists/jazz-in-paris-gitanes-jazz-productions-universal-france/

Once the new site is up, I will redirect all livingwithmusic requests directly to the deus62.com site (nobody will really notice).

P.S.: Don't forget this one: http://wiki.musicbrainz.org/Series/Jazz_in_Paris

Cheers!

Gone again for a week or so ...

For anyone who MIGHT be interested here (I don’t know how many folks still check out this thread), I have listed thru eBay (U.S.), the complete 1st edition run of Jazz In Paris w/ BOTH box sets (the 75/25 sets), as well as the 4 Deluxe 3 CD sets, and all the ones not included ion the 1st 100 CDs on those large sets… Over 150 CDs in all. Brand New). Life circumstances have changed for the worse, and I’m 2/3 of the way thru selling my over 1400 box sets. My loss can be your gain.

There's currently one watcher, and he's consulting his accountant at the moment. ;)

Hey guys, I should have come back earlier with the results, but.. I had it up 3x, and got a few watchers, and a couple of unsolicited offers. I left it on the sidelines for a few weeks, but thru the ended auction, it turns out a guy I've been doing a lot of selling to (I had about 190 Mosaic sets a year ago Aug '12 when I started to unload) and while we were negotiating a large purchase of said Mosaic's we needed to talk together on the phone to finalize it. We hit it off real well, and talked for about 90 minutes or so, when I started pitching him this set. It turned out he was not only familiar with it, but at one point was thinking about about trying to collect it... So he was thrilled to hear that I had it would indeed sell the complete 1st edition run all items brand new. We eventually agreed at $1,500 with me paying the freight.

The ironic part was 2 days later a guy from eBay contacted me. He had set as an eBay Saved Search, "Jazz In Paris", BUT the email didn't arrive in his inbox until the 3 weeks later, just after I sold it. He emailed me after receiving the saved search note for my auction. He had seen the price, and in the email offered to pay full price $1,950), if I'd re-list it. He had a copy of the 25 CD set, and wanted to buy my entire set, and then try selling his 25 CD set on eBay.

He specialized in collection full series type stuff). So after I apologized and told him it was gone, he asked me if I had any other types of HTF full collections. As that was one of my OCD traits (Collecting an entire series like this), I offered him 3 such collections which he ended up buying over the course of a few weeks.

You have to understand that all 3 of these were mainly OOP. Many items went for in the $4-&7 range, many were between $8 - 15, and then each set had its own particulars of the several very hard to find at a decent cost, or the HTF at ANY cost. Including shipping for each single purchase of course makes it more expensive. 50 CDs shipping at an average of $3 - $4 adds $150 to $200 for the price of the collection. And then when you get to the last few discs you're missing, and either can't find them or are not willing to pay $100.00 for way, you wait, keep looking, and the next time you find one of the last few you're willing to go pretty high, so it all adds up.

But that's the Story of... and That's the Glory of..Collecting.

Live at The Maybeck: a series of Live Solo Piano (Concord Jazz), by almost every well-known jazz pianist performed alone in the acoustically great Maybeck. The complete series included another 12 Duos (8 piano/bass, 2 piano/guitar, 1 piano/piano, and 1 piano/sax), 54 releases in all PLUS a very limited edition rare OOP 4 CD Box, containing Vols 1 - 4, which was released to announce the beginning of the series (which was open ended initially) The 4 CDs contained within are also provided in its regular single CD release as well.

All the $ figures show what I paid for the title and the S&H amount charged for each disc

This complete set sold for $790.00, once again making a very few $'s, but having the ripped Flac/MP3 files to listen to

If you're still with me down here, my guess is you have collecting "tendencies". The fact I'm selling everything due to divorce, and a plan to move from my home of 20 years in San Diego, perhaps even internationally called for drastic changes. I LOVED buying LPs back in the day (I did have a massive LP collection at one pont, and when that was sold off, I thought I would never get back into it. I did so by1994 w/ CDs, very slowly then decided to go crazy for several years by focusing on Box sets. I think that's one area that will continue to gain in value, as the regular CD diminishes. There will ALWAYS be Collectors like me in every generation, who will want the rare HTF top quality jazz, blues, rock etc and they will continue to get harder to find.

Regards All, and sorry if I took to much time/bandwidth. :w
