I think I can answer this, or at least shed a clue. Not from a jazz angle, but a blues angle.
I've been to a ton of blues shows/festivals. It's really easy to get into the moment, and really dig a show. It's also really easy to see a great live act that has so-so CDs, and after listening to one a few times the 'meh' moment creeps in.
I can't see myself ever dumping a CD I bought off of the bandstand, but there are many out there who feel no need to keep 'stuff'* around that they don't use.
There's also the possibility of them being gifts. Or being bought with beer ears.
*the discussion of stuff, how much you have, what you do with it, and on and on seems to be a bit of a thing these days.
I get tired of it, especially the articles about it, and the hand wringing that goes on about how other people deal with it, but it's where we're at I guess.
I don't know about today's jazz playlist but I pretty much know what will keep me busy over the weekend...
Looks like somebody needs to call in sick for the next couple of days, and get this weekend started!
Those are definitely possibilities, but both of the CDs are really good: Branford Marsalis' Requiem, and Kenny Garrett's Seeds From The Underground. If you liked the show that much, it's hard to believe you'd be bored with the CD.
On a cheerier note, maybe someone died.
Yeah, I thought of that, but decided not to go there.
Besides, if I drop $20 on a bandstand CD, croak a couple of years later, and nobody wants the CD, I'd be happier if that money was just left to my estate.
I have an Anita Oday album from my dad's collection that she inscribed and signed for him on 3 occasions. I wouldn't even think of parting with it. Then again when I'm gone all bets are off.
To chime in on this topic, I've picket up signed CDs and LPs at Estate Sales, an Al Grey CD, a couple of Art Hodes and an LP with 9+ signatures of the pre-World's Greatest Jazz Band. In addition, I just picked a signed Trummy Young LP at a record store, it was budget priced too! I know on the Al Grey one the family was glad to see the media GONE, on the Art Hodes & WGJB the estate was a local music promoter who had tons and tons of memorabilia and reel to reel tapes of concerts, posters etc. I didn't realize I was buying signed stuff until I got home. It is surprising what people let go.
EDIT: Totally forgot about the Benny Golson signed LP I picked up from a record store, no notice, no extra pricing...I managed to confirm the signature online.

I'm also going to go through my John Coltrane - The Heavyweight Champion box. Listened to disc 1 yesterday afternoon, and I'll move onto disc 2(and maybe 3) today.
I'm thinking I might rip my Complete 1961 Live At The Village Vanguard box this weekend, too. That one just doesn't get pulled off the shelf enough.
