Up for auction is Blue Note LP 4018: Walter Davis Jr.'s Davis Cup
, with the quintet of Donald Byrd on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto sax, Davis Jr. on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Record is the deep-groove version, bears the 63rd st address, and has the RVG stamp and "ear"
in the dead wax.
Sleeve: EX, with some minor discoloration along the bottom of the back cover, a name and date of June 13, 1960 written in blue pen. Otherwise great with no seam splits, no dog ears, no ringwear. The front cover is in M- shape.
Record: M- with no scratches or needle trails and no spindle wear on either side, leading me to believe this has never been played.
I am a university professor of music here in the US
who inherited this and other records (Blue Note, Norgran, Impulse!, Columbia,
Prestige, Fantasy, Riverside, etc.) from a collector and former radio DJ a few
years back. I am looking to sell off some of these records to collectors/audiophiles
who can get more enjoyment out of them than I can.
Thanks for looking.
