February 23, 2023 Daniel Levine
Pre-War Blues 78's Auction,
page 5
Closes Thursday, February 23rd, 2023 at 7:00 pm PT

Dear Friends,

Daniel Levine was a long-time friend of mine. We talked several times a month about records. He passed away suddenly a year ago.

Daniel's will gave me first option to buy his collection and I did!

I have chosen to compile just ONE GREAT auction from his records and THIS IS IT!

Daniel loved Blues AND Gospel so there will be a bit of Gospel on this auction, as well as many great Blues classics and some super rarities!

There will be some titles here that rarely come up for auction these days.

To avoid disappointment, please use my call back system. Inform me if you'd like a call-back to tell you of the current top bids on records you want. Then you decide if you want to go higher or not.

E+ is the highest grade used. This is the old-time 78 grading system and I am very strict.

Enjoy the list and good luck to all!

Rest in peace, Daniel.
