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.

I have it on CD with this cover and on LP with another covor (Color). 

I remember I was a bit disappointed when I heard it first since I had thought if Max Roach is the special guest, there will be two Drummers !!!

Maybe I was influenced by the Mingus Dolphy Thing "The Great Concert of Charles Mingus" and thought that everything else might be even more far out.

This was my first Mingus Album. Still one of my favourites. 

In my case this was one of the first jazz Albums I had, anyway…….so let´s say I had a good start.

of Course I know and own the legendary Art Pepper + Rhythm Section, but I don´t even know About the names from the second Album. Maybe it´s another Kind of Music than that I´m focussed on.
