We are proud to be able to offer vinyl treasures from one of the UK’s most important soundmen, the truly legendary Duke Vin. This is the 3rd auction.

Having been a selector on Tom the Great Sebastian in Jamaica, Duke Vin moved to London in the mid-50s and is recognised as the first to build a Jamaican sound in the UK, the wonderfully titled Duke Vin the Tickler. 

In 1958 Duke Vin played the UK’s first sound clash and through the 60s and 70s was a regular at the most happening clubs, including The Flamingo, The Roaring Twenties and The Marquee.

Duke Vin's influence on the UK’s music scene cannot be over-stated and it is an honour to offer some records from his incredible collection.
***Please note that in the style of the original soundmen, Duke Vin scratched out titles, artist names and record labels on many of his records to conceal their identity. Some bear his Duke Vin stamp, and other stickers and magazine cutouts.***

****** POSTAGE ******
For postage - here is the *rough estimates* 
Parcels over 2kg (5 LPs or more) will be more expensive and will  have to be sent via a courier. The same thing with EXPENSIVE records!
UK (Royal Mail 1st Class Signed For)
LPs =       £5.50 (first 3 are same price, then £1.5 each extra ) 7" Singles and CDs =    £3.50 (first 3 are same price, 75p each extra) 

LPs =     £9.00 standard,  £13 via tracked (£2 each extra) 7" Singles  =    £6 via standard, £11 via tracked (£1 each extra) 

12" Singles or LPs = £14 via tracked (£3 each extra)  7" Singles =  £12 via tracked (£2 each extra) 
PLEASE WAIT TO BE INVOICED, postage is often NOT what it says on the  listing. I much prefer to ship tracked due to items being lost in the post at times.  However, I do not accept any responsibility for records lost in the post  if sent via un-recorded mail by buyer's choice.
