Collection of Jazz 78’s for Sale

We have a large collection of jazz 78’s from a deceased estate for sale through Mabu Vinyl.

This collector bought a few hundred of these records between the late 1920’s and World War 2, mostly jazz.

Musicians/bands include, amongst others, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Red Nichols, Paul Whiteman, Fletcher Henderson, the Boswell Sisters, Ted Lewis, Benny Goodman, the Dorseys, Artie Shaw, Fats Waller, Stephane Grappelli, Django Reinhardt, Joe Venuti, the Andrews Sisters and Chick Webb.

These, the core of the collection, are American.

There is also a British dance/jazz band collection, chiefly the bands of Ambrose, Jack Hylton and Nat Gonella, and a brass/military band collection, featuring mainly the great cornet soloist Jack Mackintosh.

Mabu Vaginyl?

A customer suggested that we re-name our shop ‘Mabu Vaginyl’, because it is situated between the two Labias….!

For all our international readers, this is yet another in the long-running series of Cape Town jokes that makes reference to the two well-known independent cinemas that are situated a block or two apart in the suburb of Gardens in Cape Town.

To walk from one to the other, one has to walk along Rheede Street, which is where you will find Mabu.

The cinemas were named after the Italian Countess Labia who owned the building and donated it to the arts, or something like that….

The best known joke in this series is “What do you call the pink thing that is found at the top of the labia?”, and the answer is…drum roll…drrrrrr…The Mount Nelson.

Happy 2010 from Mabu and Zoopy!
