ABOUT THIS RECORD

This record comes from the collection of the late Michael de Koningh - reggae historian, regular contributor to Record Collector magazine, and co-author of “Young, Gifted and Black - The Story of Trojan Records” and “Tighten Up - The History of Reggae in the UK”.

GRADING

I grade visually under a daylight lamp so my grading may be harsher than some and I listen to samples of the record through headphones, picking up light background crackles that may not be obvious through speakers. I use an excellent vintage DJ turntable and stylus and a slight weight on the arm.

My gradings are from M-Mint to G-Good. I rarely grade M unless the item is sealed.

PAYMENT, PACKING and POSTAGE

PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO THE CURRENT LOCKDOWN SITUATION, I am not sure when I will be able to post items. However I will prepare packaging, add tracking details and hold parcels safely until such time as I can get to the Post Office. I will try to keep you updated with progress.

Please pay within 3 days of the end of the auction or let me know if you are bidding on another item.

I aim to send your item to you within 3 days of payment. Sometimes circumstances prevent this, but I will try to let you know.

I use 2nd Class Signed For or International Tracked and Signed. I supplement the cost of most International postage and I don’t charge for packaging. I don’t send items without tracking.

I will combine postage for multiple items - just request an invoice and I will alter the postage costs for you.

I use professional packaging and board stiffeners for protection. I separate disc from cover for LPs/picture sleeves. I tape your item up well to avoid split seams on packaging so please open your item with extreme care.

RETURNS

Please do read the full description, including grading notes. If I have missed anything or not accurately described an item, please do get in touch with me to discuss a reasonable solution
