This is an auction for 1500x 7” vinyl singles which belonged to one collector. Mostly Soul, Funk, Pop and Rock but including many other genres like Reggae, New Wave, Folk, Country etc. Although there is material here from the 1950s to 1990s, the majority is 1960s and 1970s, as you will be able to tell from the pictures I will add during the auction. Approximately 75% are UK pressings and 25% USA pressings.

This is an eclectic lifetime collection purchased by a single person from local record shops, one in particular judging by the faint stamps on many of the sleeves.

The collection was well looked after, kept in poly sleeves, and stored on shelves in a house with no pets or smoking. Each record has been carefully checked and cleaned. The large majority of the vinyl is VG+ or EX-, with a small number dropping to VG, e.g. due to light marks or scuffs. Some of the company sleeves have index number codes (maybe half in pencil or pen) and occasionally there are little scuffs or writing on the labels. Some sleeves have a faint shop stamp (a third approximately) which looks like its from the 1970s. This was a very well cared for collection which belonged to someone who loved music. He even replaced some old company sleeves with custom replicas, probably at great cost. There are lots of titles on London, United Artists, Tamla Motown, Stateside and Polydor in particular, and many others on more obscure labels.
