The album is extremely rare. Not even the local jazz radio station, KJAZZ, had a copy of it, The only copy in town was at The Android's Dungeon, priced at $250. However, when Comic Book Guy realized that Murphy was dead, he doubled the price to $500.
Bart bought Sax on the Beach for Lisa, using the money he obtained from a lawsuit. KJAZZ played it for Lisa, but the DJ told her that due to the station's extremely limited range, hardly anyone would hear it. However, a freak lightning strike hit KJAZZ's antenna tower, amplifying the signal to the point where it was audible through every electronic device in Springfield -- regardless of whether it was a radio tuned to KJAZZ, or even a radio at all.
