  11. Lee Morgan - Complete Live at the Lighthouse

    wait theres a legend of a Buddy Bolden cylinder? Is it supposed to be a privately recorded one, not a commerical one? tell me more! and Rabshakeh I hope you can have the chance to save it- with a new stylus, the last advancement on edisons original design- it will sound better than the day they bought it omg... so it sounds like it might of existed at one point but was thrown away. typical.
  12. Lee Morgan - Complete Live at the Lighthouse

    and he HATED jazz and blues- he said jazz sounds the same backwards as it does forwards. it first only got recorded when he was on vacation and wasnt around to approve discs- and later when his sons took over the phonograph divison edison strongly prerered recording the 1800s style parlor music of his youth
  13. Lee Morgan - Complete Live at the Lighthouse

    lolz, that would be a lot of cylinders not yet but im very much in the market for a crazy deal. Theres one lady i might pitch to but i still have to wait a few months at this point for disposable income to appear. And she'd have to knock two off and bring it closer to one at that- but the thing is its a tabletop model so its not taking up space like the Schubert was, the immediate need to have it out isnt there as much. Her price is in the "fair" range, shes not a monster. A lot of these people think they have the hope diamond and charging 10x value. Truth is you cant give these things away outside of the small crazy Edison collector subset, which is only slowly growing and rapidly declining. And my dawg the edisons are 80s!!!! Only the very last ones in 1929 were switched to 78.8 to match the edison needle types, at which point edison dealers were told to have their customers set their players at 79, as a happy medium between the old and the new.....
