Work of Art

This is one of my favourite LP's and covers. I think it's quite special. The record is an original first pressing of Art Pepper's Modern Art on Intro (ILP 606).

Cool cover.
I didn't want to book the Germs at first.They can't play
their instruments; they just throw food all over. They would
do an excruciating version of "Sugar Sugar" by the Archies and pour sugar all over the audience.

I found a copy of this (on Intro) in a thrift shop about 15 years ago ...price: $1.00. Had it for years without knowing it's value.
Ended up selling it for almost $400 a few years ago. It's a great album.

That sounds incredible, in what condition was it?

It was only a VG..NM copies are fetching around 2K.
The funny thing is, I bought it because I thought the cover looked cool!
I didn't know much about Jazz then (still don't) .. but I came to really like the music on this LP.
