The minstrel and annex bands were features at the show grounds. Here were a group of colored minstrels, players, band people, under the direction of Edward Rucker... The band plays pretty airs of all kinds, suiting the music nicely to the work in hand. When the snakes were exhibited it played a charming waltz; somehow it fitted the exhibit; others were of similar propriety - The Indianapolis Freeman, July 4th, 1914, quoted in Ragged But Right by Lynn Abbott and Doug Seroff

High hopes...
« on: July 25, 2017, 05:43:55 AM »
Lucky ol' us -- here the chance to buy Junior Wells' personal copy of Wolf's "Evil" album on Chess. All you need is $US7500 and it's yours (or you could make a lesser bid, but don't even think of offering less than $4500). After you've shuddered at the price, read on down -- the vendor is selling a chunk of Junior's record collection, including some interesting titles (ZZ Top? Allman Brothers?) http://www.ebay.com/itm/253056858144

Yeah, the prices are crazy for used records, but as the executor of Junior's estate he's bound by law to practice due diligence while acting in the best interest of Junior's rightful heirs. This probably means first going after the collectors market to see if there is any interest before trying to sell the used LPs at fair market value.

From the condition of the records, it looks like Junior listened to them and just didn't collect them, especially the 78s.

As a record collector, I doubt that he'll get any takers on these. They are all very common releases and I doubt Junior has enough of a name to attract collectors to be willing to pay that ridiculous amount of money asked.

I agree--I doubt he'll get any bites, but at least he can demonstrate to the heirs that he followed the proper sequence of steps before listing them for FMV.
