In the summer, I am off to live/work in Abu Dhabi and so I am gutted to be selling my life-long collection of The Damned vinyl. I can't take it with me and I don't want to commit it to long-term storage. This is a unique one-off opportunity to buy a pretty much complete set of The Damned records, collected over 40 years, some of which I bought on release and some I have collected subsequently. All of them are in at least good condition, most are very good or excellent (80%), and some are mint or sealed and unplayed. Included are many rare variants, limited editions and a few bootlegs, all very collectible.
There are 80 12inch/10inch and 82 singles as listed below.
I could have separated out some of the really rare records such as 'Damned Damned Damned' with the Hot Rods erratum in original shrink rap or 'Stretcher Case Baby' in mint condition or 'Dodgy Demo', original & bootleg - and probably made more lovely money - but I want to sell them as a complete set. So please only bid if you want to buy a unique complete set. I would hate to think I was selling to a dealer who was going to break them up after all this time.
And so the records, all made to be played loud at a low volume!
