I volunteer at a thrift shop at Hickam AFB, Hawaii. I was given a stack of old 78's to try and price. I got prices on the run of the mill Glenn Miller and other ordinary stuff. But imagine my surprise when I Goggled "Yma Sumac Legend of the Sun Virgin" and got Queen of Exotica. A word I recognized...

Now I'm no music expert. I am a maker of pottery. Could anyone here tell me if there is any value here? There is also another album of 78's with what appears to be a lot of Hawaiian music. I will be making a list of the titles...

I would appreciate any help I can get. There is also a fun set of Rumbas by Xavier Cugat....

Aloha
Of the common exotic artists like Yma Sumac and Cugat on 78rpm, only a few releases are "expensive", and the expensive one's are cheap in comparison to country blues for example.

Hawaiian 78s can be much more valuable.

I think you could sell a Yma Sumac 78 if condition is great for 5-8 dollar

Search
www.ebay.com for prices.

Magnus
