Large Jazz/Blues Records Collection: 1200+ historic Jazz vinyl LPs - $3420 (mini storage facility with dollies)


media type: vinyl

15 boxes (13" * 13" * 13") of Jazz and Blues records.
Includes boxsets, rare albums, and Asian pressings.
Mostly in "very good" and "like new" condition with some items still sealed or in protective plastic covers.
No multiples
Absolutely no cherry picking, sold only as one lot

The lot contains the set “The Greatest Jazz Recordings of All Time” in mint/new condition which retails on Ebay for $1,750, partly because the Franklin Society cut their own masters. The collection was curated from 1983-85 by the noted jazz critic and music scholar Dan Morgenstern. Morgenstern raided the Institute's collection for rare 78s and other obscure recordings that in some cases have been out of print for decades.

I have a detailed YouTube video and a near complete set of pictures of all album covers in this lot.
