SKF NOTE: It will be interesting to see if this test pressing is worth $20,0000 to someone. No mention in the report if anyone has played this test pressing to see if it is, in fact, the John Coltrane Quartet’s ‘A Love Supreme.’

An ultra-rare test pressing of one of the most celebrated jazz albums of all time, John Coltrane’s 1965 masterwork A Love Supreme, is now for sale on eBay. Collectors may need a sharp intake of breath when they discover that the “buy it now” price is listed, at this writing, at $19,999.99.
Academy Records added that it had bought the test pressing from “a guy whose thing is hunting through thrift stores, garage sales. We couldn’t find another copy to know how much to sell it for.”
