Visit my eBay Shop  
Thanks for looking at my item, here is a brief history of the origins of this record.

I recently purchased a collection of 70's/80's and 90's vinyl albums, many of which are in 'like new' condition. The sleeves were all in their original resealable plastic 'Tower Records' printed bags, many with price stickers still on. Where the record was issued with a lyric inner, the owner had removed the record from the inner and placed it in a poly lined inner to protect he lyric inner from splits - now I do this as a matter of course with my own collection and automatically separate records from sleeves as a matter of course when I buy a collection in but this is the first time that I have bought in a collection where this has already been done.

Because of the level of care that the original owner took with these records, the majority of the 120 records look and sound like new. I will try and point out even the most minor of flaws in each record but be under no illusion, if you buy a record from this collection then you will struggle to find a better copy.

If you require any further information please get in touch.


This is an 80's pressing of Rock N Roll by John Lennon on the MFP/EMI label in barcoded sleeve

The vinyl is in MINT condition and looks unplayed.

The sleeve has nice sharp uncrushed edges and corners. NEAR MINT condition

The Tower Records poly bag has the original Tower price sticker on it. I will include this an a heavy duty PVC sleeve.

Thanks for looking - Please check my other items as I will be listing more from this collection in the next couple of weeks

Items will be shipped with the record separate from the sleeve to prevent damage. I use envelope mailers and cruciform mailers with plenty of cardboard to ensure the item arrives in the condition it leaves here.


If you need any specific questions regarding condition of the items, please get in touch. I am a collector myself so I understand the importance of condition

 I am strict on my grading and wouldn’t list anything I wouldn’t be happy to receive. 

Please take time to look at my feedback to see how many good comments I have regarding the condition of my items.

Vinyl will be separated from the sleeve for shipping.

The vinyl will be placed in a new anti-static bag and protective card outer.

Any questions regarding condition, please feel free to ask prior to bidding.


For LPs and singles I use the Rare Record Guide grading system detailed below:

MINT The LP or single is in brand new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. The cover and any extra items are in perfect condition.

EXCELLENT The LP or single shows some signs of having been played, but there is very little lessening in sound quality. The cover and packaging might have slight wear and/or creasing.

VERY GOOD The LP or single has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticeable surface marks and an occasional light scatch. Normal wear and tear on the cover and contents without any major defects.

GOOD The record has been played so much that the sound quality has noticeably deterioted, perhaps with some distortion and mild scratches. The cover and contents suffer from folding, scuffing edges, spine splits, discoloration, etc.



Delivery Times

 I aim to dispatch all items with 36 hours of payment. If you check my feedback you will see numerous comments on the speed of delivery.

I only use 1st Class recorded postage to protect both buyers and sellers. Items over £50 will be insured

Unfortunately once I have posted the item, it is then in the hands of Royal Mail who state that 1st Class should take 2-3 days however the reality is that this isn’t always the case. It is not uncommon  for items to take 5 days to arrive.

We all know how frustrating it is to be waiting for our new purchase only for it to be delayed in the post, but please be reasonable and don’t take your frustrations on the postal system out on me.

If your item hasn’t arrived 7 days after despatch please get in touch. Don’t open a case or leave me negative feedback. I am a reasonable person and like to think that any problem can be resolved with communication.

 I obtain proof of postage on ALL items.


Postage & Packaging Costs

Postage costs have increased dramatically over the last 12 months.  Unlike some I don’t make a profit from postage.  Ebayers who sell know these costs, however some customers are oblivious to the cost of actually getting their item to them.

A single vinyl album packaged properly costs £4.10 just for 1st class recorded delivery, this does not include the price of the antistat bags, card outers, cruciform mailers, labels, ink, card stiffeners, bubblewrap etc.

Please consider these costs when leaving me feedback and DSR’s.

If you have any questions regarding postage and packaging cost please get in touch.

Overseas Postage

Overseas postage has become very expensive. For items over £25 I will only use either International Signed For or Airsure services. 

Also I always declare full value of the items for customs purposes as I need to for the insurance, please don't ask me to lie. Overseas customers are responsible for all import taxes that may be due on expensive items.

Customer Service

This is very important to me. I am not a big corporation selling 1000’s of items a day with no regard to the customers. I appreciate every order and try to make sure every customer is completely satisfied with their order.

If you are unsatisfied in any way, PLEASE get in touch before leaving bad feedback, low DSR’s or opening a case.

I am reasonable and will work with you to resolve any problems amicably, however I cannot resolve problems if I am not made aware of them.



Your feedback is important to me. I work hard to make sure my customers are happy with their items and if for any reason they are not I urge them to get in touch BEFORE leaving feedback.

Also as a business seller it is important that you leave good DSR’s. Like many sellers I feel this system is very unfair as a couple of low ratings can ruin your business and get you banned for Ebay even if you have perfect feedback.

If there is anything I could have done to make your experience better please let me know.
