About This Sale

I am selling some gems from my father’s huge vinyl collection as he has decidedto sell most of it after around 60 years of collecting. It’s important to usthat these amazing records go to a good home and that the people that buy themare happy with their purchase, as such I’ve been as accurate as I can in thedescription and photographs, and have used the Record Collector Grading System(see below) to honestly grade each album. In the case of Buy It Now listings,we’ve set the price based on research of sales from dealers, plus sales oneBay, Amazon and Discogs. We’ve then taken a little off the price to be competitive!

Please check out my other listings for good deals on rare albums. I’ll beupdating the list as I sort through the collection, so check back regularly.

I have scoured the internet for the best LP mailers I could find and settled onthe CLP Bukwrap mailers which are described as ‘indestructible vinyl record mailers’, so each item will be packedin these with the record between the paper sleeve and the cover inside anenclosing heavy duty plastic wallet as per best mailing practice. Theseparticular mailers can take up to 6 albums, so bulk postage discount isavailable for more than one purchase. Please message me for details on this.

Due to the majority of the records I’m selling being quite rare, I’ll only sendtracked and signed delivery to ensure your purchase gets to you safely and ontime, and so that we’re both covered in the unlikely event of loss/damage.
