ATTENTION: Springtime seems to always yield the best records for us, and just like our May 2010 list, we're back again a year after with over 400 rare original LPs and 45s. This is certainly our biggest auction yet, and arguably one of the largest ever on eBay. Highlights include original copies of Arthur Verocai, Captain Puff, Uncle Funkenstein, Kashmere Stage Band, Mulatu of Ethiopia, Roy Porter Inner Feelings, a large part of the Tribe catalog, David Lee Jr. and hundreds more, including large parts of the Strata-East, TICO, Prestige, and Fania discographies.. For anyone collecting rare groove, funk, jazz, or latin records, this list is simply not to be missed.
As always, each of our auctions feature full high resolution photos and soundclips taken directly from the LP for sale, so take your time to check out some things on the list you might not have heard before. If you have any questions, or would like to join the Cavern Discos mailing list for future eBay notifications and set sales, please send us a message through eBay or email us at spelunk@me.com Thanks! -B
Artist: Uncle Funkenstein
Title: Together Again
Label: R&L Records
Record Condition: Side One: Strong VG Side Two: Strong VG Side Three: Strong VG/VG+ Side Four: VG+ (please note: all grading is quite conservative - I imagine most would grade this closer to a strong VG+. This is a great copy and the visual marks I see appear to be mostly from storage, certainly a nice copy - please listen to the soundclips below to hear how the sought-after tracks play) Cover Condition: Strong VG+ (slight reside from old price sticker and a bit of ringwear, but seams are completely intact)
Soundclip #1

Soundclip #2    
Strong copy of this exceedingly rare 2xLP from Indiana - one turned up not long ago and sold for well over $3000, which was to my knowledge the first public sale of this album, and since then is the only copy to have sold publicly, which is certainly a sign of its rarity. Jazzman recently reissued the album in a quantity of 500, which quickly sold out and is now collectible as well.  Certainly one of the rarest rare groove or funk LPs from the US, without question. This copy is quite nice, please listen to the soundclips above to hear how it plays - my grading is conservative as I assign grades visually, and then provide soundclips, so that you can get the best perspective possible on both the vinyl's appearance and its sound. Best of luck to everyone bidding, and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

We grade conservatively on the simple scale of Sealed, NM, EX, VG+, VG, VG-, G, and Poor. All items are original first pressings unless otherwise noted. All audio clips, photos and label scans are taken from the copy of the record for sale and are not altered in any way.

Payment is generally expected within one week of auction's end, however due to the immense number and value of records on this list, if you need more time to pay, we can make this work. Please contact me prior to bidding so that we can schedule a payment deadline. Paypal is highly preferred, but if another payment method works better for you, please contact me prior to bidding so that we can work this out as well.
