I guess I‘d be completely freaking out if I‘d discovered any of those great classics, like for example ‚Kind of Blue‘. There‘s this film: ‚Runaway Bride‘ where Julia Roberts casually gives the ‚Kind of Blue’ LP to Richard Gere, not knowing what precious gift she hands over. Happens only to Richard Gere, not to me :)!
My father‘s Jazz collection just vanished over time. He was an engineer we moved from construction to construction place and with every move some of his precious LPs either broke or could not be found anymore. Sadly!

Yes, and I want to make sure my son and daughter (now in their 30's) recognize the value of these and don't just dump them at GW when I'm gone. Here are a couple more gems I found at the same record store:

INSANELY well mastered album that I just got in today... Fusion Jazz... absolutely clean, intricate, and powerful recording... just dumbfounded listening to it on my L300 Limiteds...don't think I have any CD or SACD that comes close to the mastering quality of this.

Here's an atrocious quality (in comparison) Youtube video of one of the songs on the album:

True gems, indeed! I'd give my daughter (just turned thirty) a portable 2 TB SSD drive containing my Jazz collection :)
