Hi Ebay Enthusiasts,
This record is part of an amazing selection of vinyl which I have inherited. The music spans from 50's - 90's including rockabilly,country,classical, rock'n'roll, blues, rock, jazz,funk, soul/northern soul, reggae, ska and afrobeat, hip hop and r&b... which I will be listing over the next few months. There are lots of rarities, although there are some reproductions of hard to find records. I am not a connoisseur neither do I claim to be an expert. I am just a music lover who appreciates good music. I will be grading by visual inspection and listening to the record. If you have any questions concerning a particular record feel free to contact me. I will try, as best I can, to give an accurate and honest description. If you feel my description has been inaccurate, please contact me first before leaving negative feedback..so we can resolve the issue speedily.
I endeavour to entertain customer satisfaction, should a problem arise with your item please contact me immediately by e-mail. A full refund is available on return of the item within 7 days of receipt.

GRADINGS ARE AS FOLLOWS:
A SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING RECORDS
Unless buying a vinyl record that is SEALED, or in NEAR-MINT condition,there will always be some type of surface sounds, or background noise, known as pops and crackling.
If the LP has been played a couple of times, it can never be perfect. This is especially noticeable in classical and jazz records, which have quiet passages.
You are buying vinyl LPs because they sound better than CDs, however the pops and crackling come with an LP.
M = Never been played or used.
NM = This record appears virtuously flawless. If there is a flaw, it should be very hard to see. Very minor scuffs and very little else can appear on the vinyl. It should play clean with a crisp fidelity throughout, without any noise over the flaw.
EX = Minor scuffs,marks or light scratches which are only slightly visible. There may be more than a few, but, it should play clean with a crisp fidelity throughout, with some minor background noise permissible.
VG =Record shows wear and has surface scuffs or light hairline marks. The vinyl still has a good luster, but the flaws will be noticeable to the naked eye and may cause some surface noise.
G = Loss of lustre to vinyl. several scratches and heavy marks (deep enough to feel with fingernail) that will affect the sound and groove wear will be noticeable. Will play without sticking or jumping but will have surface noise throughout.
F = Looks and plays bad, possibly skips. Plenty of hiss, clicks, or pops.
P = Just a collection filler, to look at.
Mint (M) = No stickers ,address labels or writing on the covers or labels. No tears or seam splits or wear to the cover. Flawless.
Near Mint (NM) = The cover appears virtuously flawless, with only very minor signs of wear and/or age.
Excellent (EX) = Artwork is clean and still close to perfect as can be. Some impression to the cover (minor ring wear) but not the ink is permissable. Light creasing is permitted,no wrinkles or bends or anything obtrusive to the eye.
VG =Artwork is clean with slightly more aging. The back of the cover usually gives away the age of the cover. Flat white paper will be somewhat yellow yet no stains or mildew from water damage. Some minor wear to the seams or spine, but no tears or holes popping through.
G =Several (but not all of the following flaws may apply): Seam splits,large marker writing,major seam splits,significant ring wear, damaged corners,tears cuts, gouges ,masking or duct tape seam repairs or other flaws and damage. Probably only used as a collection filler until a better copy can be found.
Please note there may be a difference between grading with a (+/-) , all this means is that there is a very slight upgrade/downgrade.
PAYMENT : I will accept Paypal, Cheque or Postal Order from UK bidders. Paypal only for rest of the world.
Payment is required within 3 days of winning bid otherwise item will be re-listed. PLEASE,PLEASE,PLEASE...... no time-wasters. If you have a feedback rating of less than 10 please contact me before bidding.
Always happy to combine postage for multiple buys.
PLEASE WAIT FOR AN INVOICE BEFORE PAYING
UK Postage £9.50
PARCELS OVER 5KG (around 25 records) ARE USUALLY MORE ECONOMICAL BY COURIER - FOR PACKAGES LESS THAN 5KG ROYAL MAIL IN SEPARATE PARCELS IS USUALLY THE CHEAPEST AND FASTEST.
There are many different couriers available, some courier companies are cheaper to certain countries than others - I WILL DO MY BEST TO FIND THE CHEAPEST COURIER FOR THE SIZE OF YOUR ORDER AND THE COUNTRY YOU LIVE IN.
50 records when packaged usually weighs around 18-20KG. The courier price varies from country to country and sometimes varies due to location in a country, but it seems much cheaper when sending lots of lps or many box sets.
TO POST BY COURIER I WILL NEED YOUR PHONE NUMBER AS THE COURIER WILL NOT POST WITHOUT IT.
COURIER PRICES ARE CHARGED AT COST, AS WITH OTHER POSTAGE COSTS I DO NOT MAKE PROFIT ON POSTAGE:
COURIER PRICE + PACKAGING COST + EBAY TAKE 10% OF POSTAGE COST + PAYPAL 5% = FINAL PRICE
COURIER PRICES GIVEN ON LISTINGS PAGES FOR SMALL COLLECTIONS ARE A QUOTE ONLY - PLEASE MESSAGE ME YOUR POST CODE / ZIP CODE AND COUNTRY FOR AN EXACT COURIER COST.
Example Current Courier Prices
10KG parcel insured for £250 to UK via courier £10.00
10KG parcel insured for £250 to GERMANY via Parcel Force courier £64.00
10KG parcel insured for £250 to RUSSIA / via Parcel Force courier £60.00
10KG parcel insured for £250 to USA via Parce Force £60.00
10KG parcel insured for £250 to AUSTRALIA via Landmark courier £60 / via Parcel Force courier £80.00
10KG parcel insured for £250 to JAPAN via Landmark courier £70.00 / via Parcel Force courier £82.00
Obviously (please bear in mind) the quote will be less by about £7 - 10 (£5-6 to EU) should the sale be under £150.
PLEASE NOTE: 1. Any customs / import charges incurred on international parcels are to be paid by the buyer! Customs charges vary from country to country.
2. Ebay take 10% of all postage and packaging charges, Paypal take their percentage too (2-5% depending on which currency the invoice is paid in). I do not make any profit on postage at all, the money I actually receive after Ebay and Paypal have taken their percentage is the exact amount or even a little less than it actually costs to buy the postage stamps and to buy cruciform record mailers and cardboard stiffeners.
As I have said, I do not make any profit at all on postage, if other sellers can post cheaper then they are doing so at a loss, I can't do this, sorry!
***PLEASE NOTE THAT I DO NOT CLEAN ANY RECORDS. I DO NOT HAVE A PROFESSIONAL CLEANING MACHINE AND DO NOT WANT TO CLEAN THESE RECORDS WITH A CLOTH FOR FEAR OF MARKING THE SURFACE OF THE RECORD. I WOULD RECOMMEND THAT ALL RECORDS SHOULD BE PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED PRIOR TO PLAYING TO ENSURE THE HIGHEST QUALITY AUDIO PLAY BACK, THANKS****.
***ALL RECORDS HAVE BEEN VISUALLY GRADED. IF THERE ARE ANY LIGHT MARKS THESE HAVE BEEN PLAY GRADED TO CHECK FOR SOUND QUALITY***
I WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY LIABILITY for items which are undelivered OR damaged in transit once evidence is provided the item was sent.
