Please read carefully before submitting a bid, I've owned all these LPs for a long time and consider the grading as honest as you'll find on ebay! Smoke free home, and cared for very well - during my ownership. Some of these LPs are sought after and among others you'll find the legendary first press of the debut Mayploe album!! Naturally I'm listing these to protect my original investment, hence a BIN price of £500 - that's around £14 per LP delivered!! And for this lot, that is genuinely a real steal!
I am open to offers, so feel free to drop me a line. Best wishes, Steve.
