IF THERE ARE ANY BAD LINKS OR
OTHER ISSUES ACCESSING ANYTHING ON MY WEBSITE, PLEASE TELL ME so I can
remedy it, and help you see what you want to see. If it is needed, I can send you the needed information via email.
LATEST NEWS: Out-of-season ordering instructions are now in effect. IN SHORT, that means that all buyers should write first, including USA, and I'll tell you what's available. In-Season
ordering instructions (and their link) are now disabled, because the
list is no longer competitive - and PRIORITIES, BIDDING/OVERBIDDING,
ETC. are no longer in effect. Any "BID//MIN:"
items that remain, should be considered to be the current Set Sale
price, without any discount. (I sometimes offer a discount in the
summer, but I'm not sure if I'll do that in 2018; I may simply reduce
prices on THE ITEMS I CHOOSE TO "CARRY OVER" and skip that discount
step.) Many of the items listed here will *NOT* be carried over
and will not be available again.
FRANK MERRILL///SATURDAY NIGHT RECORDS, P.O. BOX 60085, Chicago IL 60660 U.S.A. (Please email me first - I may redirect you to send any letters to Macomb as I'll be living there all summer.)
[POSTAL MAILING for USA customers, etc.]
Because you're finding this on the internet, you presumably have an
email account. You should initially use email to write to me - DO
NOT FIRST MAIL A LETTER because I may suggest you to write to Macomb IL
instead, depending on when you email me.
Email Address: email@example.com PLEASE remove all of the 4's and copy/paste - I REMOVED the "active" link - to avoid "spambots."

website is nearing a MAJOR update. I am hoping to remove all sold
items from the List #92 links within the next week. Time will
This is LIST #92 for 2018: No discount
in this first group of links, down to and including punk/new wave
(which are not on a paper list), because nearly everything is
newly-offered, or stuff from 2017 with greatly-slashed prices on these
hundreds of repeating items.
[CLICK HERE] 6,000 "NONCHARTED," rare ROCK & ROLL, SOUL, ETC. THIS SECTION and the next 10 links below,
will hopefully be updated in the next two or three weeks, to remove all
items which have been sold. There are MANY different types of
rare vintage records in this section.
[CLICK HERE] **NEW SECTION** HORROR, MONSTERS, HALLOWEEN...HUNDREDS of items here!
I am getting rid of items in my collection which have done nothing but
"just sit there, never played" for DECADES. The BID//MIN: PART, AND the Set Sale, are now both Set Sale.
[CLICK HERE] **NEW SECTION** SPANISH RECORDS! A small section, and an experiment...ALL ITEMS ARE now $4 EACH...I am clueless on selling these, but I do know they are rare.
There is NO title listed here, I don't think, that I've found anywhere
else in the past 37 years - they were in a big load that I bought in
1981. I can't even remember seeing vintage records of this type
anywhere else...in the nearly fifty years I've been searching.
Virtually all of these are labels from Texas, California, Miami, and
New York City; nearly all are Mexican music. (These records had
been sitting in El Paso.) If there is any interest in these via
bidding, I have hundreds (NOT thousands) more that I can list in the
future - perhaps NOT on a future paper list but an email only list if
all bidding is "localized" among a few people.
[CLICK HERE] **NEW SECTION** WAR, VIETNAM, OIL CRISIS, HOSTAGES, SOLDIERS/PEACETIME, COLD WAR, ETC.
A few hundred songs and narrations about war/warfare in all forms,
including prior to the 20th Century. By and large, VIETNAM
dominates this section.
[CLICK HERE] COUNTRY AND WESTERN, ALL ERAS...AND TRUCKIN' -Except for truckin', almost all else is at least fifty years old.
[CLICK HERE] MOVIE/TV MUSIC, PERSONALITY - A typically-sized section for me; CELEBRITIES come after the first section of Movie/TV/Broadway productions/scores.
[CLICK HERE] POP, EASY LISTENING, JAZZ - This is a typically-sized section for me.
[CLICK HERE] NOVELTY OF ALL TYPES, TRIBUTES, POLITICS, BREAK-INS, ETC. - The usual format, with various categorical sections. THERE ARE MORE THAN 200 BREAK-IN RECORDS LISTED...as I am selling nearly my entire collection!
I kept perhaps forty, mostly foreign and personal favorites; by and
large I kept ALMOST NOTHING RARE that was done in English. So,
the BREAK-INS are a free-for-all...there are a lot of "scary nosebleed
prices" here, which merely reflect the true rarity of these. At
least one-third of everything listed, represents titles that I have
never even seen copies of even once - anywhere - within the past THIRTY
[CLICK HERE] CHRISTMAS AND OTHER HOLIDAYS AND CELEBRATIONS - Some good stuff here, but a rather small section this time.
[CLICK HERE] "FIRST" (ORIGINAL) LABELS FOR CHARTED HITS - I'VE STOPPED COLLECTING THESE,
and nearly all of these came from my own collection. If you want
to research these, I can still send you the ORIGINAL full document from
last year; of course you will understand that many items are now gone
or "reassigned" (i.e. many that aren't records that hit the Hot 100
"pop" charts later on, specifically). Those non-Hot-100 items
(often soul), where left over, have sometimes been moved to
Nonchart. NOTE THAT NEARLY EVERYTHING LISTED IN THIS SECTION
REPEATS WHAT'S LEFT FROM 2017...BUT, IN GENERAL, PRICES HAVE BEEN
SLASHED 30% TO 55%, so they may be "affordable" to you now, this year.
[CLICK HERE] "BILLBOARD-CHARTED" RECORDS/ARTISTS - ANOTHER section where EVERYBODY SHOULD LOOK! I
am trying to return this as the refuge of nearly everything that
usual, I don't provide label/# on these - FOR SPACE SAVING REASONS -
because you can assume it's on the "correct" national release
and number, unless I state otherwise. MOST OF THE ITEMS LISTED
ARE APPEARING NEWLY, though mixed with a number of repeated items on
which I've slashed prices.
RECORDS in the "punk" selection BELOW **ARE NOT ON ANY PAPER CATALOG**! There will never be a paper catalog for these.
[CLICK HERE] PUNK/NEW WAVE/POWERPOP/ALTERNATIVE for sale - At least 1,500 items listed. MANY rare & at least 90% are older than 1985!! NOT discounted.
"ARCHIVES DISCOUNT SECTION"///20,000+ more RECORDS FOR SALE///PERMANENT DISCOUNT 30%:
NONE OF THESE ARE ON PAPER CATALOGS, NOR EVER WILL BE.
[CLICK HERE] GOSPEL AND RELIGIOUS 45's -
You will find about 500 or 600 records in this section. Contrary
to my usual approach, THESE are listed by LABEL instead of by artist.
[CLICK HERE] THE VINYL VAULT: 45RPM ARCHIVE, ALL TYPES!! - This link will take you to a page which has LINKS to AROUND 20,000 MORE RECORDS of all types!
additional documents will be added to the Vinyl Vault section after
2016. What you see, is all there will be. I will
periodically update these documents so they can "closely" reflect what
is here, as close to 100% accurate as errors permit.
