Yeah, I agree. Its from a collection with about 15-20 NM Phase4 stereos, and the rest all look very run-of-the-mill...

KAOS01

I clicked on the "shameless" ebay site. Are they yours for sale? If so, SAXOPHONE COLOSSUS is an easy $500 item in NM condition (although not necessarily on ebay. . .).

LP1469

A year or more ago, when it was a thousand-dollar album, it was a tough sell on ebay. But the jazz collectors on ebay have certainly "woken up" in the past year or so. . .

They have indeed woken up Neal - and must now be on some super strength amphetamines if some recent auction prices are anything to go by!

While not the entire cover, Chuck Jones added a familar touch to this Leon Redbone album cover.
