THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF RECORDS FOR YOU...GREAT STUFF HERE!    SERVING RECORD COLLECTORS AND DEALERS SINCE 1975!   

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.
LIST #94 IS NOW FULLY UP, AND AVAILABLE!  SEE THE BELOW!


If you have trouble opening any documents, I can also send them to you in .rtf or .txt format.  Please tell me, if so.

My printer CAN'T do my printed list this year, because he cannot get some "outside" tasks needed for the job because of Coronavirus closures.   I don't have any page constraints at all, because of NO PAPER LIST.   Because there is no printed list, I'm "beta testing" some groups of records I normally wouldn't try. LIST #94, WHICH NOW INCLUDES THE PUNK LIST, IS NOW ALMOST 200 PAGES OF RECORDS!

DISCLAIMER:  I DO NOT NECESSARILY AGREE WITH ALL OPINIONS represented by records on my list!

"DURING-LIST-SEASON" ORDERING METHODS are AGAIN
in effect.  See "ORDERING INSTRUCTIONS" link below.   HOWEVER, EVEN USA CUSTOMERS (those who are able to do so) probably should also send me [ADDITIONALLY TO SENDING ME A MAILED-IN ORDER WITH A PAYMENT OF SOME KIND] an EMAIL alerting me of your coming Postal order.  That way you've told me an order is coming, so that I'll know (if it doesn't show up) there's a delay or something!  IN SHORT, USA orders must always be mailed to me via Postal, with at least partial payment (as usual) - there's no other physically-possible way for me to manage such an insanely-oversized list and maintain some resemblance of a reasonable "time frame" for shipping.  However, under INSTRUCTIONS you'll find other things to consider, and some tips that SHOULD help your results!

OVERSEAS CUSTOMERS SHOULD **ALWAYS** ORDER BY EMAIL IF IT'S AT ALL POSSIBLE FOR YOU TO DO SO.  Postal (without email) is NOT suggested from Overseas this year!  Coronavirus has caused some mailings to take longer than usual, and your order (if postal) may not even reach me by June, which would cause you to lose everything that's important.
 

ORDERING INSTRUCTIONS ARE ALSO **VITAL** BECAUSE YOU CAN GET INFORMATION THERE ABOUT "CUTOFF DATES" FOR BEST RESULTS, WHEN YOU CAN EXPECT SHIPPING TO HAPPEN, OVERSEAS NOTIFICATIONS, ETC.!  All of that is too "wordy" to display on this front page, it would introduce so much clutter.

*USE THIS ADDRESS ONLY*.  I rented a private mail box at a UPS Store (thus the PMB, which is required in the address), and I am much more confident I'll get my mail reliably again.  I had some MAJOR issues at the US Post Office, I think mail is being regularly lost there, so I use THIS now.   Any other address you see on archived documents, etc. - please disregard.

FULL-FORMAT DOCUMENTS IN .doc FORMAT: (Microsoft Office/Word, or Libre Office, required to open)  

[CLICK HERE] HUGE NONCHART SECTION—THIS SECTION IS WILD!  Yes, I processed  a few tons of records to gather good stuff for this list, just as last year.  This is what I "distilled" from that, as well as some strong buying.  I probably have as much or more soul and garage stuff than last year, in fact GARAGE definitely so.  With no page constraints for a paper list, I didn’t have to drop stuff in midstream as I usually do, so there will be plenty of $4 and $5 records in here, too.  This section, as well as some other sections, includes some items which have been carried over from last year,  with strong price reductions.

[CLICK HERE]COUNTRY AND WESTERN—You will see a LOT of Fifties, and definitely you’ll have a good time here. This section is one of the largest I’ve ever done, and it includes a bunch of 78RPM (an experiment!), and a section of GOOD CHARTED TITLES mostly Fifties..  You should have fun.  Except for some truckin'  records, almost everything is older than 1963.

[CLICK HERE]  HORROR, MONSTERS, HALLOWEENThis is a another substantial list, because I’ve processed more parts of the alphabet from my personal collection.  There are still some things I keep and don’t list, but not many.

[CLICK HERE]   WAR, MILITARY, TROOPS (VIETNAM, COLD WAR, VARIOUS CIVIL WARS, WATERGATE, OIL...) There was proven to be enough interest in these, that I’ll keep doing this section.  This year’s is even LARGER THAN LIST #93!  Again, so much stuff from all my old inventory, add up…

[CLICK HERE] MOVIES, TV, SHOWS AND PERSONALITIES—This section isn’t huge, but I’ve thrown in a LOT of records which have picture sleeves!  Those who like picture sleeves, should do well here.

[CLICK HERE] POP, EASY LISTENING AND NON-ROCK—This section is one of the largest ones I’ve ever done, of this genre!  There are actually TWO SECTIONS HERE:  (1) usual noncharted pop and jazz, and (2) THIS IS NEW, Billboard charted hits 1949 to 1955 (and occasional later pop that charted).   Before this list is finished, you’ll see THREE SEPARATE “chart” record sections that I have never done before anytime in the past:  pop, country (above), and 1990’s stuff (below)!

[CLICK HERE]  NOVELTY AND TOPICAL (ALL TYPES)—HUGE SECTION again this year!  This is probably my second-largest novelty section since 1988(?), only surpassed by last year’s list.   You will have a lot of fun here!  NOTE THAT MY GAY/HOMOSEXUAL COLLECTION IS LISTED IN ITS USUAL SECTION, but this time about 160 items - this was promised last year!  Many rare, and BID items, etc. in it – AND FOR YOU WHO LIKE MODERN PUNK RECORDS, THERE’S A *LOT* OF THAT IN THIS SECTION (and on the punk list below) as well.   This is the first time the "punk list" has ever been considered a part of my vintage list but, again, I can do it because LACKING A PAPER LIST, there are no page constraints.

[CLICK HERE] BILLBOARD CHARTED HITS *ALL CHARTS*!!1954 to late 1980s...THERE’S A LOT OF GREAT STUFF HERE, and everybody should look here.  I’ve kept this section heavy with Bubbling Under, for those collecting that chart, too.  You can expect a large charted section, always, on future lists until whenever my final vintage records list is (currently targeted for 2022)

[CLICK HERE]   BILLBOARD CHARTED HITS - 1989 and later!   This is a new never-before section.  This is entirely Billboard Chart records (Hot 100) from VERY LATE, after vinyl became difficult to find.  Collectors of this should enjoy this!
 

[CLICK HERE]
  CHRISTMAS/HOLIDAYSTHIS IS MY LARGEST CHRISTMAS SECTION EVER!  You’ll see a substantial part of my personal collection (which I’m starting to divest) when you reach the B’s, and onward.

[CLICK HERE]  PUNK/NEW WAVE/POWERPOP/ALTERNATIVE - More than 1,100 listings.  ALL RECORDS in this selection *will never appear on a paper catalog*, these are all at full price without discount.  This is now considered part of List #94.  I've never done that before, but without page constraints, I CAN this year.

#############################

Plain text (.txt) versions of any documents in this section, which can be read on all computers, are available by request.

THE NEXT SET OF DOCUMENTS represent records with DEEP DISCOUNTS.  These documents (PROBABLY:  Charted, novelty, and War) may become a "revolving archive" of sorts - some time during June 2020 most (or all) of the other documents will disappear, and gotten rid of.  RECORDS LISTED IN THIS GROUP OF LINKS ARE 40% DISCOUNT ON ALL DOCUMENTS.  THIS SECTION ONLY.  These are all titles which appeared on List #93, most of which I will not keep after spring of this year...I have a buyer for many of these this summer (WAR, NOVELTY, and CHARTED, may be maintained in this section until 2022, not sure...).  Have fun!!
       [CLICK HERE]   HUGE NONCHART SECTION -- ALL RECORDS ON **THIS DOCUMENT** are ALSO 40% DISCOUNT!   Yes, you found a GOOD deal here, for cheap stuff...have fun here, guys!
        [CLICK HERE] COUNTRY AND WESTERN (pre-1965)...AND TRUCKIN' (all eras) - This is mostly Fifties, and definitely you'll enjoy this if you collect this genre.   Except for the TRUCKIN' records, almost everything is older than 1963.
      [CLICK HEREHORROR, MONSTERS, HALLOWEEN  - There's still some fun stuff in here! 
 
       [CLICK HERE WAR, VIETNAM, OIL CRISIS, HOSTAGES, SOLDIERS/PEACETIME, COLD WAR, ETC.  There was enough interest shown in these in 2018, that I am continuing with this section.  This section will continue to be large, because I always have stuff to add.   I *may* maintain this document (and NOVELTY, CHARTED below) until 2022.
       [CLICK HERE]  MOVIE/TV MUSIC, PERSONALITY -  small section of remaining records.
        [CLICK HERE]  POP, EASY LISTENING, JAZZ -
small section of remaining records.
        [CLICK HERE]  NOVELTY OF ALL TYPES, TRIBUTES, POLITICS, BREAK-INS, BEATLES, ETC. -
This section retains the usual categorical headings. which I've been using for about a decade now. 
If you have a want list for NOVELTY,  please go ahead and ask.  I have at least 20,000 such records that will never be listed.  I may maintain this document until 2022.
        [CLICK HERE]  "BILLBOARD-CHARTED" RECORDS/ARTISTS **ALL CHARTS EXCEPT COUNTRY...TONS OF SOUL!!** - There is still a very substantial base of GREAT records in here! Not giving label/number (because you already know it, generally) allowed me to list an additional 3,000 titles.  This section will be large in 2020 and 2021, but very little OR NONE may be added in 2022.  These identical records won't be on a NEW list again, unless I fail to notice occasional duplications.  I may maintain this list until 2022, not entirely sure.
 
        [CLICK HERE]  CHRISTMAS AND OTHER HOLIDAYS AND CELEBRATIONS - This section will become huge when List 94 is ready!  I've never listed most of these before, because parts of my COLLECTION are on it, F through M (which will be added to on List #94 when ready).   If you have a want list for categories in this heading, please send it, because I have a few thousand Christmas records which will NEVER be listed. 
############################
"ARCHIVES DISCOUNT SECTION"///more than 15,000 RECORDS FOR SALE///DISCOUNT is NOW 40%:
NONE OF THESE ARE ON PAPER CATALOGS, and will not be - unless there's random duplication.

         [CLICK HERE]  GOSPEL AND RELIGIOUS 45's - You will find about 400 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 15000 MORE RECORDS of all types!
No additional documents have been added to the Vinyl Vault section since 2016.  On these documents, probably around 80% are available now.  (If you're trying for SOUL out of here, though, your fill may be  15% to 40% because everybody goes after those!)  As I intend to offer vintage records only until around 2022, the enormous work required to reflect 100% what's available is no longer warranted, and discount on all of these is NOW 40%, to make your effort more rewarding.
