This week we are selling several large collections of vinyl records on behalf of several customers. This includes heavy metal, rock, jazz, punk and classical music. If you are interested to see what else is available, please check out our other items . We will combine and reduce postage costs if you win several records, please wait for a modified invoice before paying.

We sell rare records regularly and understand the needs of dedicated record collectors very well. We know attention to detail is very important to you. Visual grading is carried out with care (see note below) and we tend to grade on the conservative side in order to under-promise and over-deliver. We are happy to answer any additional questions you may have. We do not play-grade though, due to time limitations.

Other Info :


All records are posted in strong custom cardboard mailers for safe transit. Records are inspected under strong direct light and graded visually only.

Note for UK bidders : Records sold for more than £41 will need to be sent by Special Delivery @ £5.95 rather than First Class Recorded.

Note for International bidders : A signature on delivery (mandatory due to PayPal rules) costs £4.95 GBP and is included in the postage price quoted but if you win several records, you only have to pay this fee once. Also, if the combined winning bid for all your records is more than £41 GBP, there will be a one-off surcharge of £2.50 to ensure your records are sufficiently covered for loss and/or damage in transit.


Please note we grade records VISUALLY ONLY , we sadly do not have time to play-grade records. Records are carefully inspected on both sides under strong light. This will normally pick up most defects but not all of them as visual inspection is clearly not as thorough as play-grading and some minor audible defects may go undetected. The following criteria are used to describe the condition of the record :

MINT : We never describe a record as mint, no matter how good it looks, unless it is sealed and guaranteed unplayed. Covers may be descibed as mint if there are no blemishes of any kind. EXCELLENT : The record shows some signs of having been played, but no scratches or other significant blemishes can be detected with the naked eye under strong light. We would expect there to be very little lessening in sound quality. The cover may have very small defects but no tears, rips or significant wear to the edges, and no writing or non-original stickers on them. VERY GOOD : The record has obviously been played but we would expect no major deterioration in sound quality, despite a few noticeable surface marks and the occasional light scratch. There is normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items but no major defects such as tears, rips or excessive writing. GOOD : The record has been played so much that the sound quality may have noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and several scratches. The cover and contents suffer from either creases, scuffing of edges, spine splits, discolouration, etc. or perhaps even several of these. FAIR : The record is still just playable but has not been cared for properly and probably displays considerable surface noise; it may even jump. There may be many scratches and blemishes. The cover and contents will be torn, stained and / or defaced in some way. POOR/BAD : We do not sell records in this condition.
