The Michael Cosmic "peace in the world" LP just sold for over $2,000 on eBay today.

Clifford; this makes the $500 invested in your copy an absolute bargain!

Ouch!

Well, it's on my wantlist too, but obviously nowhere near that price.

In general (rare) free jazz seems to be doing very well on Ebay these days. Earlier this month, the Khan Jamal on Dogtown finished at $1700+.

yep!

I paid $80 for a clean copy not all that long ago, in fact.

OK, this is a CD madness, but a true madness all the same.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/JEAN-LUC-PONTY-Enigmatic-Ocean-JAPAN-CD-WPCR-16328-2015/253910157201?hash=item3b1e398791:g:FiwAAOSwXW9bsurr:rk:1:pf:0

Jean-Luc Ponty Enigmatic Ocean Japanese CD from 2015, without OBI. US$ 20,000. You can see this seller has other (probably) equally unrare things for equally insane prices available. I can kind of understand Amazon sellers asking outlandish money for not-so-rare things (like: I have it, I'm not particularly interested in selling, but for a thousand bucks I can part with it), but this it just ridiculous. If I'm not wrong eBay takes percentage of every listing, even if it does not sell, in this case it must be heavy. Probably more than this CD is worth in Shibuya Recofan.

I'll assume that this Japanese seller is typing in Yen values and not realizing that it's coming up dollars. Still, even with this mistake, 20,000 Yen is $177 US dollars - still a crazy asking price for this CD, which does not appear to be very rare.

Heck, you can buy 4 or 5 original press Hank Mobley Blue Note ‘stick insect’ LPs for that !

I see Amancio D’Silva ‘Integration’ is up there at number 25. Great album (and reissued very well too).

Those Miles Davis Mosaic vinyls are to hang on to !

It does make me feel better about my expenditure on LPs when I see how much folk are prepared to pay for a 7"

Not really Ebay madness but some Discogs madness.... Check out the October top 30 most expensive items.... Quite a lot of jazz in it:

Fats Navarro's Memorial Album for 1318 dollars, Horace Parlan's Us Three for 1675 dollars, Clifford Jordan's Blowing in from Chicago for 2300 dollars. An the top one: Albert Ayler's Something Different for 2300 dollars?!?!?! You must really not know how to spend your money if you pay 2300 dollars for a very subpar Ayler record....

I noticed that Albert Ayler’s Something Different! sold for $2,400. What was different was the price, although I don’t think that’s what Albert had in mind.

Someone listed various Prestige test pressings on eBay. The listings say they were the property of Fantasy Records. I wonder how they got hold of them. Here’s one of the listings.

Looks like it's a test pressing from one of these two relatively recent box sets:

I’m not sure if it is as that’s a Mile Davis Prestige collection.

I don’t think it’s those sets either but they definitely are original given the test pressing date is from 2000
