Big Used Classical and Jazz LP Haul For Sale at This Year's AXPONA Audio Show!

The folks at Morrow Audio just emailed that they will be bringing to this year's AXPONA audio show in Chicago (April 13-15) at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel, thousands of vintage classical and jazz albums all in mint condition, 95% of which have never been played.

Morrow Audio recently bought the Northern Kentucky University library's entire LP collection and will be bringing to the show a few thousand of them for sale at booth 111 in the Expo Hall. A total of 12 deep plastic tubs filled with records will be for sale, including "some rare gems". The library began its record collection in the 1950s. A turntable will be on hand for listening before buying.

Usually when people shlep large numbers of records to a show, the goal is to sell them, not take them home so expect some great records for reasonable prices or maybe even better.

Hmm....The folks also brought some LPs to RMAF in Denver last fall and included such choice audiophile and music lovin' titles like Percy Faith records.....Not making that up, I hop this group of LPs is better stuff....Happy digging

Would love to dig through those Alicia de Laroccha. Pity Chicago is so far.

FWIW, I've noticed in the past few months large LP collections hitting the Chicagoland used record stores including the suburban Half Price Books and Records locations. Popular, rock and jazz LPs from the 1950s to 1970s in mint to VG+ condition for prices between $5 to $15. It must be the kids disposing of their folks collections.

Check Mile Long Records in Wheaton. Mike always lands the best collections somehow and hand picks for quality titles and condition.

Thanks for the notice! Yet another reason to attend.

If the prices are right, I'll be right there diggin' in the crates at the opening. And here I was hoping to get off cheap this year! With jazz, I'm not into a lot of what other collectors are after, so there might be hope that I find a few things I like before the selection is too picked over.

Thanks for the heads up!
