My third project for Krause was a new jazz guide. KP had al­ready pub­lished one price guide for jazz records, but it had been the usual mish­mash: a list of records with val­ues as­signed that made no sense. In fact, it was even more con­fus­ing than the pre­vi­ous jazz guide pub­leished by O’Sullivan Wood­side in 1984.

Ti­tled Main­stream Jazz Ref­er­ence & Price Guide, it fol­lowed the time-honored pat­tern of OW books in as­sign­ing laugh­ably high val­ues in com­mon records while pric­ing the rare records so low you’d never know they were rare and de­sir­able!

My fifth ti­tle was pub­lished by Krause Books of Iola, Wis­con­sin, and is tech­ni­cally ti­tle the Goldmine’s Price Guide To Col­lectible Jazz Al­bums 1949-1969, but is usu­ally short­ened to as “the Umphred Gold­mine Jazz Al­bum Price Guide.” It cov­ers those records cov­er­ing many mu­si­cal gen­res that were man­u­fac­tured in the United States.

I will tell you more but right now this page is un­der con­struc­tion.
