Huge Classic Rock Blues Soul Psych Jazz Vinyl Record Collection Lot Zappa. Im going to try and be as descriptive as possible so this might be a little long winded. How many records in the collection? There are 47 boxes / totes with roughly 90 records in each one so that equates to 4,230. There could be slightly less or more.
What kind of music is in the collection? Ill start off by stating what you wont find. You wont find any classical , spoken word , cheesy soundtracks , (there are some 70s and 80s soundtracks). Theres no comedy , no musicals world music (aside from 1 small box of Latin and India type music , FANIA labels and such).
The collection is predominantly a rock / jazz / collection but there is some reggae , r&b , country, soul , disco blues , folk , hip hop , black gospel and such. The rock spans across multiple sub genres and decades.
Anywhere from psych , progressive , pop , alternative , new wave but with the bulk being classic / psych rock. You will find a wide mix with some duplicates. Good psych like king crimson , captain beef heart , Zappa , dead , and more obscure type psych. Youll also get more common rock like Seger , Joel , Journey , the cars , Simon Garfunkel , Asia , ARS , BTO , etc.
You wont find any Streisand , Belafonte , Jim Neghbors , Jackie Gleason or Manilow unless its an import or audiophile. There maybe some other similar but more obscure type artist.You will find some Sarah Vaughan , Dionne Warwick , and similar type artists but not too many of them. Theres a good amount of white label promos and imports in the collection.
The jazz records will include all sub genres of jazz which include fusion , progressive , contemporary , and big band. I would say its evenly spread. Youll find some Coltrane , Miles Davis , Blakey , Armstrong , Basie , Ellington , Brubeck , Cobham , Quincy Jones , Jimmy Smith , Goodman , Sinatra , etc. You wont find any super rare blue notes but there are a couple original blue note , prestige , and riverside labels as well as plenty of 6 eye labels.The next genre would be soul , r&b , and disco. Youll find an even mix of these with lots of obscure and popular titles like Marvin Gaye , Stevie Wonder , Aretha , Barry White , etc. Theres a lot of 50 and 60s original soul as well as 70s and 80s. The rest will be a mix of blues , country , reggae , hard rock , alternative , oldies , and such. Youll find a lot of good country like Cash , Haggard , Jones , Hank , David Allan Coe , John Prine , Tom Waits , etc. What is the condition of the collection?
So Ill start off by saying if youre expecting 4200 Mint records you will be disappointed. Having said that I try to be careful about what I include. Most of the Stones , Hendrix , Beatles , Zappa etc will have pretty clean surfaces but you may come across one that does have visible scuffs and scratches that may possibly skip. You wont find anything with heavy swirl marks or lots of deep scratches.
You may find a rare older album might have more scuffs than what is typically acceptable but that will be very few of those. Over all the records will grade VG to VG+ and many will grade much higher. Some records will fall below VG but not many at all. The jackets will also be acceptable. Most will have typical flaws like a small seam tear , ring wear , spine wear etc but nothing ruined.
Only a very very small amount may have above average wear like paper loss. Due to the size , quality of titles , and price of collection I would rather you inspect the collection in person. I dont want someone to have expectations of more than what I described. For instance there are a lot of nice original desirable labels and artists but theres also going to be a lot of the more common rock and jazz artists. You could literally start a store with the inventory I have.Message me with any questions. I try to be as accurate as possible in the description but there are always some people who expect more than what is described and I want to avoid dealing with those type of people.
