Yeah. I found a VG++ (close to NM-) copy of Outward Bound for $40 a few weeks prior too. Not as good a deal but still...

I'd say that's an incredible deal!

Puts my $7 vg++ original of "far cry" to shame because I think "outward bound" usually goes for more money on eBay

Wow. Don't tell Euclid about your spots...

Do you mean "Euclid records"?

That guy travelled down to Vancouver here a few years back to buy one of the best 50s/60s jazz collections around..it was a retired collector I'm friends with and I got to see the collection before it went...a near complete collection of original blue notes and prestiges amongst thousands of others. He sold it for $250,000 which seems really high and a good price for the collector, but it worked out to about $30 per album so given the high number of 3 to 4 figure albums in that collection it was a good deal for Euclid too!

That's a heavy deal.

Hehehe... Found the Dorham in Atlanta, the Dolphy in Springfield. Funny story about the Dolphy, I took the record to the counter and watched the owner stare at the tag, then inspect the cover and record. I fully expected him to shelve the sale but he said something along the lines of "looks like _____ (prolly pricing guy) left off a zero. Not your fault, $40 it is."

Haha, classic. That's happened to me before, more along the lines of "oops, this isn't a reissue - okay, well, our fault."

Just got home from Princeton Record Exchange. I found the entire 49 lp run of the Duke Ellington DETS series in the $1.00 bins. Took 'em all home for $49 + tax!

These are the Treasury Shows right? What a steal. I'm only just starting to pick up the CD versions...

Right - now being reissued on CD. Their availability on cd made this buy more a luxury than a necessity, but I had sought the set on lp for years. It's nice to finally own it.

Kenny Graham/Don Rendell "Tenorama" on Nixa/Lansdowne series for 29 dollars, again in great shape for a nearly 60 year old UK LP.

A nice haul of UK LPs located many thousands of miles from their origin !

A hint at closer cultural ties that used to exist? ;)

Congrats anyway! :tup

. Nice score on tauhid. Someone must've not known that's a $30+ record at least.

Atlanta has some great record stores, but I seldom see original-press Blue Notes here. But this afternoon I found a mono copy of Jackie McLean's One Step Beyond for six dollars. The cover is pretty beat, but the record sounds very good - just the slightest surface noise in quiet passages.

Original Mal / 2 on Prestige. Jacket has two random pieces of tape in front and two "Not For Sale" stamps in back. LP plays really, really nicely after cleaning on the VPI.... $20.

The UK Fontana pressing of "eastern sounds" by Yusef Lateef for $30 Canadian in NM condition. A welcome upgrade to my late 60s/early 70s prestige issue since I'm not up for spending a few hundred on an original Moodsville issue in nice shape...
