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.  (I just corrected some bad mistakes on three documents, and they've been opened up again for you.)
**EXPECT LIST #96 IN AUGUST 2022**.

ALL DOCUMENTS IN PARTS ONE AND TWO (except Religious and the discounted Chart "4i") are now entirely updated!  You can note that the former "5" documents (EXCEPT CHART DOC's AND CHRISTMAS) have now been "SPLIT" into carry-over items (with PRICES GENERALLY LOWERED 30-45%) and 40% discount items (PART 2-A).  The intention is to eventually split Chart and Christmas as well, and merge all PART 2-A documents into PART TWO documents.  Everything here is 100% ready as they stand.  

ORDERING:  Out-of-season "rules" are now in effect until AUGUST.
THEREFORE, ALL CUSTOMERS, PLEASE USE EMAIL TO ORDER, and I'll tell you how much to pay.

All below documents are now in .rtf and .txt format:   However, THE VINYL VAULT (which is linked at the bottom of this page, which opens the page full of links to 11,000 more titles) still DOES have .DOC documents.

PLEASE, ALWAYS, PUT *YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS* ON YOUR ORDER.  (especially UK, where addresses are **USUALLY** forgotten.)

EDIT (25 March 2022):  APPARENTLY all major browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Edge) have changed HOW they open various WORD documents, including the .rtf files on this page and the .doc files in Archives.  Instead of opening each document directly as before, they now give you a New Tab with a drop-down list (in the upper right) of the document you want, and a few others.  Now you'll need to click on the document you want, and it should open.  The document you want to open is, I THINK, always the first one listed.  As a help, I added to titles of everything on this page, to SHOW [the document number and name] that you need to click on.  I hope this helps everybody.  Apparently it's "a security thing" or something; even the computer Tech guy in Connecticut had the same thing happen.  But, .txt documents open up RIGHT AWAY and directly.  They're NOT IN NOTEPAD AS IN THE PAST, though, but in "loose text" like the body of an email.  I hope this causes no problems for anybody.  It doesn't look like I have a fix!  So, if you want the newest Nonchart section, look for [6b--Nonchart] on the drop-down list.


 
PART ONE:  RECORDS *NO DISCOUNT*: 

[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] HUGE NONCHART SECTION [6b--nonchart]—still some great stuff!    Even after updating this document by removing all sold items AND all items that will not be carried over to List #96, this is STILL a wild section.  This document is now entdirely up to date, and I expect to keep it as close as possible to fully-updated until it is replaced with the new List #96 Nonchart document in August 2022.  THERE'S SOMETHING HERE FOR EVERYBODY.  There are about 750 titles here, but they're the "power records" remaining from List #95.

[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION]  COUNTRY AND WESTERN [6c--country]—You will see a LOT of Fifties, and definitely you’ll have a good time here. This section is very substantial, and it includes a bunch of 78RPM, and a section of GOOD CHARTED TITLES mostly Fifties..  You should have fun.  Except for some truckin'  records, almost everything is older than 1963.   

[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSIONHORROR, MONSTERS, HALLOWEEN [6fff-horror]This 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.

[.rtf VERSION]  [.txt VERSIONWAR, MILITARY, TROOPS (VIETNAM, COLD WAR, VARIOUS CIVIL WARS, WATERGATE, OIL...) [6ff-war] There was proven to be enough interest in these, that I’ll keep doing this section.  Additional to this section, I'm maintaining an ARCHIVAL section close-at-hand in PART TWO, below.  Again, so much stuff from all my old inventory, they tend to accumulate (IN THE 40% DISCOUNT DOCUMENT BELOW)…

[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSIONENTERTAINMENT [6d--entertainment]—Unfortunately I had no time to add to this section in 2021.  This section is tiny, but PRICES HAVE BEEN REDUCED SUBSTANTAILLY since originally listed. 

[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSIONPOP, EASY LISTENING AND NON-ROCK [6e--pop]—This section IS HUGE for a Pop section!  There WERE actually TWO SECTIONS HERE:  (1) usual noncharted pop and jazz,; BUT (2) THE NEW section of pre-1956 POP CHARTED has now been moved to 4i, which WILL BECOME 5i.  

[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSIONNOVELTY AND TOPICAL (ALL TYPES)—HUGE SECTION [6f--novelty] again this year!  There are a lot of records here!.   You will have a lot of fun! 

[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSIONBILLBOARD CHARTED HITS *ALL CHARTS* - LOTS OF SOUL!! [6i--chart]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 sectio on List #95, when MANY, MANY NEW TITLES will be added to this.   

[.rtf VERSION]  [.txt VERSION] BILLBOARD CHARTED HITS - 1989 and later! [6ii--ChartNineties]   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!   NOTE:  None of this document is on my PAPER list.
 

[.rtf VERSION]
  [.txt VERSIONCHRISTMAS/HOLIDAYS [6g--christmas]This is a large selection!!  You’ll continue to see a substantial part of my personal collection (which I’m starting to divest) in this document, as long as I continue to do catalogs!. 

[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] PUNK/NEW WAVE/POWERPOP/ALTERNATIVE [punkforsale] - 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 my Internet list (here). 

[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] "BILLBOARD-CHARTED" RECORDS/ARTISTS **ALL CHARTS EXCEPT COUNTRY...TONS OF SOUL - THIS IS A MASSIVE LIST** [4i--chart]
ANY ORDERS FROM THIS DOCUMENT, PLEASE ADD UP ALL THE PRICES AND APPLY A 40% DISCOUNTTHIS IS THE ONLY DOCUMENT IN THIS FIRST SECTION, WHICH HAS A DISCOUNT - all others are at full price.  THIS DOCUMENT IS DUPLICATED BY THE LINK IN PART TWO, BELOW, because of its importance.  It is included twice because
it contains THOUSANDS of titles!  Many are titles that never appeared on my lists, but which went directly to "instant 40% discount." 

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


PART 2-A [TEMPORARY]:  temporary "HOLDING AREA" for NEWLY-DISCOUNTED ITEMS.  These records are intended for MERGER with the appropriate PART TWO documents below, but NOT YET - more important work needs to be done first, as well as a "mega-vacation".  These records are available at 40% discount NOW, and cannaot be merged yet due to all of this!  Stay tuned...this section WILL eventually merge, and disappear.

ALL RECORDS HERE AND PART TWO BELOW:  THE 40% DISCOUNT MEANS THAT YOU WOULD ADD EVERYTHING UP AT THE PRICES SHOWN, THEN SUBTRACT 40%.

[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION]  NONCHART SECTION [5b--Nonchart] - There are about 700 titles here, which are now discounted at 40%.  
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION]  COUNTRY AND WESTERN [6c--country]
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSIONHORROR, MONSTERS, HALLOWEEN [6fff-horror]
[.rtf VERSION]  [.txt VERSIONWAR, MILITARY, TROOPS (VIETNAM, COLD WAR, VARIOUS CIVIL WARS, WATERGATE, OIL...) [6ff-war]
                                                                                ENTERTAINMENT  NOTE:  NO ACTIVE LINK FOR THIS, because SO FAR there's only ONE item on it!!
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSIONPOP, EASY LISTENING AND NON-ROCK [6e--pop]
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSIONNOVELTY AND TOPICAL (ALL TYPES)—HUGE SECTION [6f--novelty]

THIS IS ALL I'VE GOT SO FAR.  Temporary PART 2-A documents (i. e. 40% discount) cannot be available until at least five weeks from now.  TYhis affects all CHARTED and CHRISTMAS records.  It's even possible that those documents will be immediately merged into the PART TWO documents below, bypassing 2-A entirely.  Also, the above 2-A documents will disappear in a few weeks as they get merged into PART TWO documents below.

THIS IS ONLY A TEMPORARY HOLDING AREA, but it allows me to offer you stuff at 40% discount, rather than waiting for merging the documents and records.

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

PART TWO:  RECORDS *40% DISCOUNT* - There are many NEW TITLES that you may not have seen, ESPECIALLY IN THE CHART SECTION, so you should look here!

ALL DOCUMENTS HERE ARE somewhat out of date.  I hope to have them fully fixed befcore Christmas.  I now include two document formats.

These documents are now all .rtf format, with alternative .txt, which I believe means that you don't need Microsoft Word/Office to open them

THESE are records with DEEP DISCOUNTS.  These documents are becoming "revolving archives" of sorts.  In most cases 2019 and 2020 documents are now combined.  
RECORDS LISTED IN THIS GROUP OF LINKS ARE 40% DISCOUNT ON ALL DOCUMENTS. 
THIS SECTION
.
 These are all titles which appeared on Lists #93 and #94, I decided that maintaining this as an archive (for now) is NOT that difficult!  Have fun!!
        [.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] HUGE NONCHART SECTION [records from 2020 - from List 94]--ALL RECORDS ON **THIS DOCUMENT** are ALSO 40% DISCOUNT (as are ALL documents in this group)! [4b--Nonchart]  After List #95 wraps up, I may eventually add records I won't carry forward from THAT list, into these discount documents, but this isn't decided yet.

        [.rtf VERSION] [[NO .txt version]] "small" NONCHART SECTION [records from 2019 - from List 93]--ALL RECORDS ON **THIS DOCUMENT** are ALSO 40% DISCOUNT! [3b--nonchart]   Yes, you found a GOOD deal here, for cheap stuff...have fun here, guys!  Thesae will be merged with 4b, and the combined document (along with non-carryover items from List #95) will eventually become 5b.

        [.rtf VERSION] [[NO .txt version]]  COUNTRY AND WESTERN (pre-1965)...AND TRUCKIN' (all eras) [records from 2019] [3c--country]- This is mostly Fifties, and definitely you'll enjoy this if you collect this genre.   Except for the very few TRUCKIN' records, almost everything is older than 1963.   Similar to above descriptions, but discounted.

        [.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] HORROR, MONSTERS, HALLOWEEN [4fff--Horror]  - There's still some fun stuff in here!  Similar to above descriptions, but discounted.

 
       [.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] WAR, VIETNAM, OIL CRISIS, HOSTAGES, SOLDIERS/PEACETIME, COLD WAR, ETC. [4ff-war]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.   Similar to above descriptions, but discounted.

       [.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] MOVIE/TV MUSIC, PERSONALITY [4d--entertainment] -  Similar to above descriptions, but discounted.  

        [.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] POP, EASY LISTENING, JAZZ [4e--pop] -

ANY ORDERS FROM THIS DOCUMENT, PLEASE ADD UP ALL THE PRICES AND APPLY A 40% DISCOUNT.  THIS DUPLICATES THE LINK IN PART ONE, ABOVE.  It is ALSO under Part One because it contains THOUSANDS of titles!  Many are titles that never appeared on my lists, but which I listed directly to "instant 40% discount."     I'VE REPEATED IT HERE BECAUSE IT'S SO IMPORTANT.



       
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] CHRISTMAS AND OTHER HOLIDAYS AND CELEBRATIONS [4g--christmas]  - Similar to above descriptions, but discounted.
  ############################
"ARCHIVES DISCOUNT SECTIONS"///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.

         [.rtf VERSION]  GOSPEL AND RELIGIOUS 45's [99a--religious] - 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] [THESE ARE ALL .DOC WORD DOCUMENT FORMAT]    THE VINYL VAULT: 45RPM ARCHIVE, ALL TYPES!! -
This link will take you to the second page, which has LINKS to AROUND 10000 MORE RECORDS of all types!

Buyers should NOT expect good results for soul, garage, or popcorn, in the VINYL VAULT! 
The VINYL VAULT has become rather depleted over the years, though a handful of rarities may remain in the novelty sections.  As with other PART TWO links above, these are also all 40% discount.
