Subject: Request Info on Old 78s

Emptying old boxes in our house, we found several 10" vinyl records, mostly blues, one or two folk. I'm wondering if there's interest in these, and what they might be worth.

A sampling:
Louis Armstrong & Orchestra- Vocalian: "Got No Blues,"West End Blue"
                              Decca: "Shadrack" Jonah and the Whale"
Count Basie-   Decca: "Sent for You Yesterday," "Swingin the Blues"
               "      "Dark Rapture" "Jumpin at the Woodside"
Billie Holiday- Okeh: "Love Never Leave Me," "Jim"
Jesse Fuller- World Song(J's first record):"RR Blues",""Hangin Around"
Lead Belly- Muse Craft: "The Gallus Pole," "Burgeous Blues"
Jelly Roll Morton- Bluebird: "Georgia Swing," "Mournful Serenade"

Any information and/or advice will be greatly appreciated! Jean

Firstly, could we establish what we are talking about here.

If they are 78s, they are much more likely to be made of the highly-breakable shellac rather than vinyl.

However, there are also quite a number of early 10" vinyl LPs (33rpm).

The name of the person and the email address that I am sending you in a PM is one of the most knowledgable people in the UK on the release dates, value, packaging etc. of early jazz and blues on 78rpm discs. He is also an avid collector and would probably be looking to fill some of the (few) holes in his huge collection by buying any that you would like to sell
