    Auction For Charity. For those of you who are unfamiliar with our VOA charity you can read about it here http://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/adopting-families-for-the-holidays-2017.796847/


    With the holidays fast approaching its time for we here on Audiokarma to start our annual fund raising drive to help those less fortunate. How this works is we list items for sale with a start and ending date. Once the item ends please contact me for payment info.

    Please remember that 100% of the funds from this auction will go to help our adopted VOA families. OK, on to the auction


    Up for your bidding pleasure is a sealed copy of Mississippi John Hurt, American Epic: The Best Of Mississippi John, Third Man Records TMR459. First some background. I am a huge fan of Jack White's TMR record label. This particular version of John Hurt's LP was released back in June of this year, and ONLY available at the Third Man store in Detroit, or at the Nashville, store fronts. Very few were pressed on speckled maroon vinyl, of which this is one. Not one copy of this LP has ever sold on Discogs, that should tell you how exclusive it is. Why not treat yourself to this must have Blues LP, and help a great charity ??

    Track listing:

    1 Frankie
    2 Ain't No Tellin'
    3 Spike Driver Blues
    4 Avalon Blues
    5 Louis Collins
    6 Candy Man Blues

    1 Stack O' Lee Blues
    2 Praying On The Old Camp Ground
    3 Blue Harvest Blues
    4 Got The Blues, Can't Be Satisfied
    5 Big Leg Blues
    6 Nobody's Dirty Business
    7 Blessed Be The Name


    Lets start the bidding at $1.00, and run the auction till Dec 19th at 12:00 midnight, Central standard time. Now I stood in a massively long line, and obviously paid MUCH more than a buck for this. While there is NO reserve on this auction, I will proxy bid a Minimum of 30 bucks to buy it back if the bids do not reach that amount. Believe me, its well worth it.

    Again Please remember that all funds raised from this auction will go toward helping out adopted families. Also I will be auctioning off many more items for our charity in the coming days. If you would like me to hold off on shipping so you could consolidate items to save on shipping I would be happy to.

    Thank you for looking

    Wow, come on folks, this LP is easily worth 2-3 times this. This cover was hand screen printed at Third Man Records Detroit pressing plant. Check out the details on it here https://www.discogs.com/Mississippi...est-Of-Mississippi-John-Hurt/release/10449293

    Folks, you still have till Midnight to get in on the fun, and take home a great LP. All the while helping a family in need. Thanks and happy holidays

    In fairness to the other bidders, let me call your attention to my last bid, which was $45. That's the bid price which won.

    I still stole it.
