Postage and packing in purpose-built new boxes extra. Winners only notified.

Condition, as ever, guaranteed. Minimum bid unless stated £5/$8. I reserve the right to refuse unrealistic bids.


It’s quite simple -  there are two ways of bidding; first is the simple Straight Bid - you offer a fixed amount for an item and if yours is the highest bid, you win that item for your bid price. 

Secondly, and easier for those more familiar with online auction sites, and for those collectors unsure of what to offer, is the Maximum Bid. You offer a bid to a maximum amount, which will be increased in 10% increments over the nearest bid up to your maximum amount. For example, you bid to a maximum of $100 on an item, but the next highest bid is $20 - you will pay $22, i.e. 10% over the the next highest bid. In the event of a tie the fixed bidder, or earliest-placed bid wins. Please send bids to mark@jazzhound.net

IMPORTANT! Please make clear the system of bidding you are using and currency you are bidding in (Pounds Sterling, Euros or US Dollars) 

If you have a maximum budget to spend, please advise with your bids.

Please also double check your item numbers when bidding - I do not use titles on my auction spreadsheet, so if you bid on the wrong number and win it, it’s yours!

Payment by all major Credit Cards* as well as £ and US$ personal checks and Paypal. (* via Paypal website)

NOTE:  Some of the categorisation of certain instrumental-based artists, such as jug bands has been, by necessity, arbitrary so please check both the Jazz and Blues sections.

SUGGESTED MINIMUM BIDS. I’m often asked "How much should I bid on so-and-so?” Well, the straight answer is bid what it’s worth to you. However it is useful for newer collectors to have an idea of what some of the rarer items may realistically fetch, so I am showing against some such items a Suggested Minimum Bid (SMB) in British Pounds. 

Feel free to disregard these figures  but they are based on 40+ years of selling 78s, and in many cases are considerably less than what they may actually achieve. Bids over these amounts are more likely to be ultimately successful.

SB=Sunburst (Decca). DJ=Disc Jockey or Sample Copy. TT=Truetone label OKeh. MB = Minimum Bid.

Starting with this auction we will be offering a great selection of Jazz, Blues and Hot Dance records from the collection of jazz clarinettist and record dealer Johnny Hobbs, plus more Master Test Pressings, many of which were unissued on 78 (and some never reissued!). Unless stated they are vinyl (rather than the less durable modern polystyrene pressings), and several are super-high quality shellac pressed in the late 1930s and early 1940s for George Avakian for consideration for reissue on Columbia, Parlophone etc.
