W A N T E D ! MINT CONDITION CLASSICAL VINYL LP COLLECTIONS which were bought B E F O R E 1965. We appreciate the effort many sellers make by compiling lists of their LP collections. Unfortunately most of these lists are useless. Without viewing the LPs, their labels and especially their condition, it is impossible to make offers or to provide valuations. We do not get involved with "Valuations" for obvious reasons. At the end of the day any LP is only worth what somebody is prepared to pay. Just because an LP has been sold once or twice for X amount does not mean that all others will fetch the same price. Even the rarest LPs can take a very long time to sell for their top price. Example: Our Don Rendell - Ian Carr - Dusk Fire was snapped up in a dealer frenzie at a recent London record fair for 350 GBP - yet offers for the same LP on this website rarely exceed 100 GBP. We are happy to arrange viewing. Sellers are expected to quote at least an approximate asking price. We are unable to view collections outside the UK. More Info

Ebay Madness Worthwile examples of buyers loosing the plot can be listed here, in the hope that it will spread awareness that many small websites sell relatively rare items for fair prices. Here it is, a half-full tube of genuine Garrard grease -- enough to last a lifetime. Box shows its age, but still useable and hardly anything to cry about. The winning bid in this contested auction -£26.00. Should we charge £100.00 for one unused tube of main spindle grease in the sealed original Garrard box ?
