I think I have this with another cover. A CD with a Cartoon pic of Flips and I think all his Verve Recordings from the late 40´s into the early 50´s . And there are some more boppish sounding sides with Howard McGhee on it. 

Some very fine Flip Phillips is also on that old America label LP "Saturday Night Jazz Session" with Roy Eldrige-Flips Phillips on the first side, and a mixed all star band featuring Fats Navarro on the other side. Flips Phillips really strong on the title "Flip and Jazz". 

Time to flip again! Now playing:

The first jazz album I ever bought (along with the 1971 BN "Best of Herbie Hancock" in the same purchase).  Great album!

Did they have world class cutout bins where you lived? My teenage budget learned that that was where a LOT of action was for NOT a lot of money!

They did, Philly and surrounding suburbs.   Woolworth's and Field's and Korvette's were gold.  Got some of those Riverside and Pacific Jazz reissues from the late 60's/early 70's/whenever for like 57 cents.  There was a great store in Philly that sold everything for $1.  I was able to get some Blue Note and Prestige cutouts and tons of Cobblestone cutouts there.   Later on, Third Street Jazz had some marvelous cutouts, like Black Jazz (Doug & Jean Carn, etc.) for 99 cents each.

Yep! I had around 500 jazz LPs by the time I graduated from high school, most from the cutout bins (and many of the same type you mention...talk about getting a "generational" jump on older forms of jazz...a total fluke of time/place, but god, wouldn't trade it for anything, truly a blessing). Moving them into the dorm each year (and back home afterwards) was a bit of a chore. When I got a place of my own, that was actually the first of several causes for celebration!

My 3rd/4th years of college and first five years of jobs were in Philly in the city.  I used to go to Third Street Jazz every payday, along with other spots.   Had quite a collection in a hurry, and like you, I am thankful.

Wow!  What an amazing alignment of circumstances for you guys, hearing all that great music so inexpensively, so early in your lives. 

I have a wonderful collection of music now.  But I still can't help being "retroactively" jealous!  Seriously!  :g

Eric Dolphy + Booker Ervin (!!) ....

The first Mingus record I ever heard.  Made me an instant fan of both Mingus and Booker Ervin.  (Took me longer to hear the beauty in Eric Dolphy, but I eventually found my way in.) 

To this day, Antibes is my desert-island pick for Mingus.  No love like a first love.
