Announcement   After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
-Aldous Huxley

I am a musician, and have been an esteemed vinyl collector for over 20 years. All my albums are graded visually, and in some cases, played to ensure quality.

My goal is to bring these beautiful vintage, and rare gems to your turntable, and from your turntable, into your heart.

All records are priced based on rarity, and then quality of the actual product for sale. I want you to have the vinyl you want for the cheapest price available. I have 1000's of records unlisted, so please ask about anything you don't see.

I didn't receive the item and there has been a lack of communication (2 months) since I was told they were going to get to the bottom of why it hadn't been delivered. The post office told me it had to be the sender who made the enquiry and as far as I'm aware, nothing has been done. Complete waste of money and I feel like it's been stolen from me. No offer of a refund or anything. Could have at least messaged to say how they had got on, if they did make an enquiry at all. Very disappointed.

Please do not base my performance, or shop policies on this review. All of that is false. This was the only negative review I've ever received and it was not warranted. This order was shipped one business day after it was ordered, got to the location in less than a week with tracking the whole way. It has been marked as delivered by the post office, and when I opened a dispute as I was asked to by the buyer, the post office also confirmed it had been delivered. The buyer insisted they have not received it still and asked for a refund. I could not give a refund on an item that had no evidence of being lost, and did have solid evidence of being delivered. This whole ordeal has left me feeling helpless. Please do not read into this one negative review. Please judge me on the 1901 other positive reviews. ROCK ON!

My Grading System:

The vinyl, and sleeve condition will always be described first, noting all flaws, shrinkwrap, cut-outs, etc.

Vinyl grading is as follows:

SEALED: Exactly that. 100% factory sealed, unopened, unplayed.

Mint: Only used in the rarest of occasions. Opened, but most likely unplayed-no spindle marks. Flawless.

Near Mint: Close to the above. Perhaps unplayed, really excellent condition.

NM- Near Mint -: The is the most common grade I use. Minimally played with literally one surface/storage mark or less.

VG++ Very Good ++: also minimally played, no more than 5 superficial surface/storage marks. Will play beautifully.

VG+ Very Good+: 5 or more surface/storage/handling marks. Moderate play wear. Playback will still be clear with little to no surface noise/cracks/pops.

VG Very Good: This grade is for highly collectible titles only. I don't usually carry much in this grade. Lots of play wear/surface marks. There will be surface noise/pops/crackles, perhaps a skip or two.

*PLEASE NOTE: Price is always adjusted accordingly for condition no matter the rarity of the title.*

REASONABLE offers are considered, feel free to 'convo' me with your request.
