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

*LIST #96 IS HERE!*  26 August 2022 - only one week late...WHEW!  At last...this wait was far too long for ALL of us, even more so for me.  I hoped to post these 19 AUGUST, then MY YAHOO EMAIL WAS HACKED ON THE 17th (AND RECOVERED FULLY ON THE 19th).   I had to write at least 1,500 emails to customers and friends (including responses, status changes, etc.) and I'm STILL not done with that...AND a necessary trip to Memphis which let me get rid of 3 TONS of records, and such total insanity slowed me badly.  ALL DESCRIPTIONS, ETC. UPDATED as of 31 AUGUST 2022.

I realized on Saturday afternoon 27 August that my Document descriptions hadn't been changed to reflect the NEW LIST, so I got that done.  Glad I noticed it, because some of the old descriptions were EXTREMELY deficient/misleading.

IF YOU FIND YOU CANNOT OPEN SOME DOCUMENTS, please email me to let me know, and I can send it to you in an email if necessary.  Some customers experience it sometimes (but it's NEVER consistent).

ORDERING:  "IN-SEASON" RULES HAVE RETURNED.  That means that PREPAID (in whole or part) orders are required from USA.  This will get your records to you AT LEAST two weeks earlier, as well.  On a list of this size, this is the only way I can do it and stay sane, lol.

OVERSEAS should do email as usual.  Overseas MAY send an order by Post (snail mail) if desired, but it should NEVER be relied on as the only way to send an order, because mail can still be delayed, which can destroy your order.   Postal delays aren't as bad as 2020 when there were active efforts to completely destroy the U. S. Postal Service, but they can still happen.

Please GET RID OF any Chicago address.  I no longer use a Chicago address!   The Post Office that I formerly used, lost at least seven pieces of mail, both in the P. O. box and going to the old PMB address, including a couple orders, in 2021.  EMAIL IS CHANGING TO GMAIL here, which is something I intended to do years ago, but my mid-August hacking made the timing RIGHT to do that now.


Email Address:  fmerrill

jr@gma44il.com   PLEASE remove both 44 numbers, and note that I am now migrating my list activity to GMAIL from Yahoo.   (My YAHOO email is still entirely usable, and I'll see orders which use that address, but gmail is CLEARLY  PREFERRED now.)

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 10,000 more titles) still DOES have .DOC documents only.

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

PART ONE:  RECORDS *NO DISCOUNT*:   ALL-OK TO ORDER FROM ANYWHERE NOW!
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] HUGE NONCHART SECTION [6b--nonchart]—THE MOST INCREDIBLE SECTION IN MY LIFETIME!  THERE'S SOMETHING HERE FOR EVERYBODY.  There are about 5000 titles here, WITH A LOT of "trophy records" this time.  For the most part they've mostly crowded-out the $4, $5, $6 records, though there's some of those because they are ALSO necessary for my typical list.  I wouldn't even WANT a list with nothinbg else but rare records on it, because not everybody is trying to buy rare records.

[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION]    MISCELLANEOUS SECTION ***NEW SECTION!!***-- Local/regional "PRIDE" records, ADVERTISING, SPOKEN WORD, TRANSPORTATION, INTERVIEWS, DOCUMENTARY - these were formerly mixed into novelty but they really deserve and NEEDED their own section.

[.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 substantial, and it includes some remaining (cheap!) 78RPM.  You should have fun.  Except for some truckin'  records, almost everything is older than 1970.   

[.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.  I've added a few dozen titles this year.  I'm also maintaining an ARCHIVAL section close-at-hand in PART TWO, below. (with those at 40% discount from listed prices).   

[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSIONENTERTAINMENT [6d--entertainment]—Among other things, DOZENS OF MOVIE COMMERCIALS (ON 45) HAVE BEEN ADDED HERE!  There's a lot more to list, where tfhose came from, in the future.  The appeal is limited, but these types of records are ALWAYS scarce or rare.  I also have the usual themes and movie music, and celebrity recordings, as I always have had.. 

[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSIONPOP, EASY LISTENING AND NON-ROCK [6e--pop]—You will find prices on a lot of these reduced (or SHARPLY reduced) from last year!  I also added some items, but the great majority are reduced-price items from last year's list.  You should still have fun.

[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSIONNOVELTY AND TOPICAL (ALL TYPES)—HUGE SECTION [6f--novelty] again this year!  This is among the largest ones I've ever had.  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.  IThis section includes  Bubbling Under and Soul/R&B, for those collecting those charts, too.  MANY NEW TITLES have been added, many former prices have been lowered, and many other former titles have been shuffled-off to 4i, the DISCOUNT document.   

[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION]    PICTURE SLEEVES (empty, no records) ***NEW SECTION!!*** -- I've wanted to do this for YEARS!  The last time was about thirty or even forty years ago.  At last, here they are.   A good selection, with the potential of MANY, MANY MORE in the future - I have thousands of possible future titles!

[.rtf VERSION]  [.txt VERSION] BILLBOARD CHARTED HITS - 1989 and later! [6ii--ChartNineties]   This is entirely Billboard Chart records (Hot 100) from VERY LATE, after vinyl became difficult to find.  Collectors of this should enjoy this!   NOTE:  This section is NOT on my PAPER list.
 

[.rtf VERSION]
  [.txt VERSIONCHRISTMAS/HOLIDAYS [6g--christmas]This is a large selection (as I almost always do)!  You’ll continue to see a substantial part of my personal collection (which I’ve been divesting) 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 rather than an archival document. 

[.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
