    Ashby one was decent, but some random paisas at Laney College somehow stumbled upon some DJ's collection.

    Have been going back to that estate sale. Ridiculous shit. I've pretty much grabbed everything I want but every time I go back I find a new stack. These are the last two hauls. I've bolded some stuff I really dig.


    Bill Evans Trio - Motion, Peacock, Duo (Hall) (1976)
    Charlie Parker - Jazz Perennial (1961 - Sealed)
    Count Basie Orchestra - April in Paris (1961, RP )
    Count Basie - Basie Land
    Bill Evans - At Town Hall (1966 - Sealed)
    Count Basie - Chairman of the Board (1958)

    Zoot Sims - Plays Four Altos (1957)

Finding a portrait of jazz is awesome too even if it's not the original. The collection just keeps going and going. Some of this I will unload to a record store in town if they give me a good deal but most of it I can't part with. Too much good shit.

    Zoot Sims Sextet (with Al Cohn) - From A to Z (1957)
    Zoot Sims - Good Old Zoot (1965)



    That Dizzy record is fucking ridiculous. Double Six of Paris are no joke. That record is in perfect shape as well. I'm sure the goldmine collector's guide is a joke like any collector's guide but it says 150 for that record. I dunno. Not bad for 5 bucks.

    Random question: why do some 2xLP albums have Sides 1 & 4 on one disc and Sides 2 & 3 on the other? 1-2/3-4 makes sense, and 1-3/2-4 I could understand too since you could queue the next side if you had two record players, but I really can't work out the logic behind 1-4/2-3.

    I used to have the same exact question. I figured I'd find those in the dollar bin because they were misprinted. Then my mom told me about the real reason.

    This is called a record changer turntable. You could place two records on the spindle (Sides 1 and 2, respectively, facing upward,) the player will play the bottom disc (Side 1) then drop the second disc to play side 2 without you having to get up. Then you just flip both records, peg side 4 above side 3 and repeat.

    Ah, I knew there had to be a reason - thanks Mr. Mack. I guess these kinds of players were popular enough for record companies to press albums this way?

    My parents both had those players in their houses when they were kids. I guess it was the go-to for hi-fi equipment for awhile. I don't know what caused them to stop producing those.

    My table will do this.

    And ods, that's some serious jazz. Like, wow. And that From Elvis in Memphis record is really good. As I recall, in 1969 Elvis wanted to make a comeback, non-soundtrack rock record after the success of his Christmas comeback in 1968. This is that record. Good stuff. It's been chopped up and reissued by RCA a number of times under different titles, but this one is quite good. There is a live Vegas record around this same time that has gotten the same treatment and is also worth checking out.

    Thanks! Word, I will keep a look out for that Vegas record. This guy's collection has a ton of live Vegas stuff that I haven't really grabbed. There is one Dianna Ross at Caesar's Palace that I've been eyeing though. I still haven't picked the entire thing. There's a full bookshelf of soundtracks/original cast recordings and a full bookshelf of classical; I know some of those soundtracks are worth some money. So if i can get a stack for a good price I will. I'll be hitting this one for a few more weeks minimum haha.

    Soundtracks really aren't as collectible as they may seem, unfortunately, mostly the ones that have unreleased tracks by artists, such as Quincy Jones' "Foul Owl" on the In the Heat of the Night OST. Some of the iconic Bond soundtracks are worthwhile: Goldfinger, From Russia With Love, etc, but the Casino Royale soundtrack on Colgems is pretty much the holy grail of soundtracks. Find that and you may well have found yourself $100.

    As for classical, first look for anything in Stereo. With classical, mono is considered unlistenable trash. Same with orchestral or symphonic records. Small groups, string concertos, chamber music, etc are what folks want. If you see anything from Deutsche Grammophon or Archive Production (often seen also as "Archiv Produktion") in stereo, you can bet it's probably pretty good to keep or sell, so buy it. Also, ANYTHING pressed in the Netherlands is highly sought after.

    The live Vegas records are intriguing. Nat King Cole did a live Vegas record that's pretty good and surprisingly rare-ish. I highly suggest you buy that if you find it in there. And don't be afraid to grab some Tom Jones, his Live in Las Vegas record is fucking good. Live at Caesar's Palace isn't quite as solid but it really illustrates how the neon lights and the loose slots & sluts really put Jones on the top of his game creatively (unlike every single other performer on the kiss-of-death Vegas circuit). And yeah, that Elvis Vegas one I mentioned above is definitely worth digging for as well.

    Awesome, thanks for this brief writeup. I thought I had mentioned Bond OSTs (looking back at my comment I didn't). Those are one of the main reasons I'm gonna go back and dig the soundtracks; he said he had a few Bonds in there.

    As far as classical, I've been trying to learn a little bit more so I'm not so overwhelmed when I get there. I took a look at this site which has some of the same advice you just gave me: http://www.classic-choice.co.uk/collectorsguide.asp#hmv

    I know for a fact that he has some of these, most likely a ton, so I'll have to look around.

    The Magical Mystery Tour is the one Beatles album I would say you definitely want the US version. The UK one was a 10" with only songs not released on singles, but the US one adds a few singles that really make the album.
