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.
LATEST NEWS: LIST #92 (2018) IS NOW FULLY AVAILABLE, BELOW!
Because I yet need to manually update mailing lists by going through a
year of paperwork, it will be a few days before I send notifying emails
that the list is ready. Some of you may find the list beforehand. This is the
list you've all been waiting for. At last, I've finally finished
it, and I can now put it up. I am so relieved that I managed to
get this done, no later than last year.
FRANK MERRILL///SATURDAY NIGHT RECORDS, P.O. BOX 60085, Chicago IL 60660 U.S.A.
[POSTAL MAILING for USA customers, etc.] **DO NOT MAIL ANYTHING TO MACOMB, IL 61455...FOR ANY REASON.**
This address is now, and it is permanent - because I have now moved
house to Chicago - a distance of 260 miles (400 kilometers).
Email Address: firstname.lastname@example.org PLEASE remove all of the 4's and copy/paste - I REMOVED the "active" link - to avoid "spambots."
[CLICK HERE] LIST INTRODUCTION, TABLE OF CONTENTS, ramblings, happenings, fun stuff, and other things.
[CLICK HERE] ORDERING INSTRUCTIONS, TIPS, SUGGESTIONS - IN-SEASON RDERING RULES ARE NOW IN EFFECT.
Therefore, this has now returned to the "all USA customers should pay
me or send Deposit at time of ordering" - THIS ALSO PREVENTS nearly all
mistakes that I could make. (I need to be "consistent" or,
otherwise, orders can be mis-laid, delayed for weeks or even months, or
USA/Canada are the only countries which have NO-FEES payment
methods. Overseas should not pay until I send you an email (in April) telling me the amount of payment I'll need; this avoids
superfluous monies (refunds, etc.) being moved around, all of which adds more fees. Overseas buyers aren't notified
until I know the exact payment AMOUNT.
I should probably also mention a new problem with postage, which only affects Asia (generally Japan) and Australian orders.
The Post Office changed the rates remarkably in January, so that it
costs more than $50 to send **ONE** record to Asia or Australia.
It costs only a little bit more than $60 to send 41 to 44
records. Therefore, the first record is tremendously expensive to
ship, and all of the other records (after the first) have NEARLY FREE
THIS DID NOT HAPPEN WITH EUROPE POSTAGE (AND PRESUMABLY NOT CANADA - I
HAVEN'T CHECKED YET). Instead of the range $50 (for one record)
to $62 (for more than forty records), Europe starts at $14 and ends at
I think around $53. Therefore, this horrible problem doesn't
exist for Europe (though $14 is still a lot for one record - but
required to assure safe mailing).
PLEASE, ALWAYS, PUT *SHIPPING ADDRESS* ON YOUR ORDER.
NOTE: This website is now ENTIRELY up to date as of 10 March 2018. No further updates will occur within THIS FIRST GROUP of 13 LINKS.
This is now the NEW 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 LINK is again entirely functional, and it now includes the full contents of the NONCHART section of BRAND NEW LIST #92.
[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 sitting there, never played" for DECADES. The first part is
BID//MIN: (BIDDING), second part is Set Sale.
[CLICK HERE] **NEW SECTION** SPANISH RECORDS! A small section, and an experiment...ALL ITEMS ARE MINIMUM BID $5...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 300 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.
