I am offering for sale my collection of 33 two-disk 45 RPM 180-gram ORG classic Impulse and Verve jazz albums. (The complete list of albums is at the bottom of this listing.) They are in Excellent (9/10) condition or better. These records were reissued under subscription and were numbered. Given the uncompromising quality standards at ORG, I believe that every copy of these albums issued under subscription are of best quality than can found, although lower-numbered copies are more highly valued. ORG re-mastered these recordings on all-analog equipment using the original analog recordings. The lathe that cut the master disk for pressing was also all analog. No digital process can produce recordings that are as faithful to the original performance; no information is lost in all analog processes.
I received each of the 33 albums listed by subscription as they were released by ORG. They are all numbered. Note that there are two series, and the last album listed has a unique number.
Upon receipt of each album in this subscription, it was transferred from its sealed loose plastic cover to a Japanese clear resealable outer sleeve. This was done without leaving fingerprints on the covers.
Most of these albums have never been played because I started to lose my hearing shortly after I began this subscription. None of the albums, or any album I have ever owned, has been touched on its playing surface or the starting grooves with my fingers.
There are no surface sounds that were not present when the albums were new. (You will hear a rare pop in this set. I believe that this is an inevitable feature of albums that are all analog and are produced from the original analog tape to the pressing using all analog equipment.)
The albums in the set that I have played were played on my VPI Classic with a Benz Glider cartridge which was professionally mounted. In addition the tone arm was set up by my local high end audio shop.
I am selling these because my hearing loss is permanent.
The set is a bargain: The vinyl and jackets are in excellent to mint condition and numbered sets of these albums are very rarely seen on the market.
The quality of the sound on these albums is as good as it is possible to find. If you have good ears, this set will make you very happy.
I will consider lower offers if you are willing to pick the albums up at my house or you allow me to use your FedEx or UPS account to pay shipping.
