1930's - 1940's BIG BAND & SWING
Updated June 9, 2023
Most are from my own collection started in 1963. Others I
picked up at estate sales only if they were Mint condition. All albums, with few
exceptions, are Near Mint to Mint condition, and jackets will be Excellent to Mint. All
are Hi-Fi monophonic unless indicated as being in Stereo. Records will be rated on a 1 to
10 scale; 10 being Mint, maybe played once or twice. The first number is the condition of
the record, the second number is the condition of the jacket. A number in brackets ( )
after a title indicates the number of copies I have of that title.
